Should Have Been Truck Of The Year
By Matt on
Vehicle2006 Nissan Frontier Nismo 4dr King Cab 4WD SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)
ReviewWhen Toyota Tacoma was named "Truck of the Year, I think it was done because of brand name only. When I looked at the Tacoma, I noticed that it did not have full-boxed frame. Part of the frame was 'C' channel. The concept of a composite bed is nice on paperwork but the practical aspect is not. A pickup truck's rear end is light enough without making it lighter by using a composite bed. The V6 in the Frontier is generations ahead of the Tacoma in efficiency (hp to ci) and it's done with 87 octane not 90+ as recommended by Toyota.
Best Features265hp & 6sp on 87octane
Worst FeaturesOEM tires Door panel quality Skid plates are a bit on the thin side compared to the ones on my 95 Sonoma 4x4.
