2008 Nissan Frontier SE 4dr King Cab 6.1 ft. SB (2.5L 4cyl 5A)


Traded the 06 4x4 Tundra for this one. Just couldn't justify 15mpg after selling the camper. More power would be good but this 4cyl is a big upgrade from older versions of the Nissan 4cyl automatic, especially considering how much larger this truck is than frontier's of the past. Excellent handling, great breaks & smooth ride for a small truck. Would like to see Nissan incorporate their cvt technology into this 4 banger to maximize it's power.

Best Features

Solid build. Good looks. Large size small truck with 4cyl economy (getting 21mpg city with pretty heavy foot, haven't tested highway yet). Great handling, good stopping power. Decent commuter/weekend warrior.

Worst Features

Offer a 4cyl CVT. Turn radius could be tighter. Make foglights & cruise std equip on the SE.
