Manual midsizes, a lonely club
By chriscmore on


2013 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X 4dr Crew Cab 4WD 5.0 ft. SB (4.0L 6cyl 6M)


I chose the Frontier over the Tacoma, because the Frontier is 5% smaller but with a larger bed, and a larger engine with better economy.
It's also noticeably a few years fresher in design.
I got the temporarily-discontinued PRO-4X with 6sp manual, which had to be shipped from Oregon to Nebraska.
The 6sp is a lot of fun, but the reverse gear is hard to find and should have been to the left like German autos.
The tailgate extender is nice because it's easy to remove.
The bed divider is functional but a bit obnoxious in that it's not an easy one-side affair to move or get out of the way.
Love the step rails and tie anchors.
The ambient temperature sensor is occasionally disfuntional and I had an oil leak fixed in a gearbox plug.
It's economy is disappointing, but I think he'll last me until electric trucks come out.
