Does exactly what I bought it to do

I bought a 2019 Midnight Edition Frontier, in gunmetal with "steel" interior . It is fitted with 18" black wheels, black out trim and a really useful package of options, including tow package. The second weekend I had it, I drove it a considerable distance to spend the weekend with friends at their beach house. The bed extender came in handy with two kayaks and two mountain bikes strapped into the bed. Nissan's Utili-track system is outstanding for this purpose. This truck is very comfortable to drive, both short and long distances. I found the steering ratio to be slower than I prefer. It took some getting used to. Brake force distribution and ABS prevent rear wheel lock-up, but add to the stopping distance at highway speeds. Around town, brakes are excellent. While the Frontier interior is minimalist, with hard plastics (except on the door arm rests), it has a simple elegance all its own. It is a pickup truck, and simplicity isn't a sin. I don't expect to take it off road very often, I have a Wrangler Rubicon for that. Yet, after airing down the tires to 18 psi, I drove the Frontier on the beach with ease. I bought the Frontier because I needed a vehicle with greater utility than my Wrangler or my 2016 1/2 Mazda CX-5 Touring. After shopping midsize pickups, and seeing ridiculous MSRPs (a Ranger Lariat at $45,655, a Colorado at $42,280 and a Tacoma at $44,148), the $34,030 sticker on the Frontier Midnight Edition was surprising. After rebates, discounts and negotiation, the bottom line price was $29,030. None of the other midsize trucks can come anywhere near that price with similar options and equipment. Therein is why I bought the Frontier. Superior reliability, and the best value for the money. By far. Update: As of seven months of use, my Frontier has been driven from Long Island to the Space Coast of Florida and back. It carried over 1,000 lb each way. Despite the load, fuel mileage averaged 20.7 mpg. The ride was comfortable and quiet. The responsive V6 gets the truck up to highway speed effortlessly. Nissan's excellent entertainment system was flawless, streaming music and audio books. I have zero complaints to date. Update: As of 12/28/2020, I have 17,300 miles on my Frontier. It has required nothing more than routine maintenance. No issues whatsoever. Both tires and brake pads show only about 20% wear. We have used it for towing a camping trailer. Several trips to the Carolinas and Tennessee. It's quiet and comfortable on the highways. Thus far, it had proven capable and utterly reliable.

After looking at the new Ranger, the Colorado, and a few different Tacoma’s, the Frontier won me over. I’ve read a lot of the negative comments from the “expert” reviews, but the simplicity of my truck is what ultimately sold me. It took the salesman at the Ford dealership 15 minutes just to explain the infotainment system in the Ranger! Not for me. This truck is great; it handles well, has plenty of power, and is surprisingly comfortable. For the price, it can’t be beat. I haven’t had the chance to go off road or tow yet, but I will soon and I have no doubts I’ll have zero issues. The technology is simple and straightforward to set up, and as a bonus the sound system is outstanding. I don’t have many negatives. I’ve averaged around 19 mpg around town, which could be better. But honestly I’m happy as is. The power and torque are very satisfying durning my daily commute, and as I’ve mentioned, I love the simplicity of this truck. I have no issues with the “dated” feel that’s prevalent in a lot of reviews. I’m sure the others trucks have a lot to offer in new technologies and features; but at the end of the day I wanted a safe and reliable truck that’s rewarding to drive, and has stood the test of time. I’m beyond happy with my choice.

I rented a 2018 pro4x and took it off roading in Anza-Borrego state park in southern California. It shined and I was thoughly impressed. I wanted a wrangler, or zr2. But there prices are just not justifiable for 90% of the market. My uncle owned a 1990 nissan hardbody v6 with the mickey thomson off-road package. He took that little truck everywhere. It was at 405,000 miles when it was totalled on a freeway 5 car pile up. Nissan builds reliable trucks at a affordable price. Thats something jeep and GM can't do anymore. That's why I grabbed a pro4x with the luxury package the second it went on sale. If you need all the latest and greatest electronics, then you probably don't need a off-roader.

New 2019 Frontier SV 4x4 auto Midnight Edition, under 2000 miles. My truck has excellent steering, a speed sensitive power type with no sloppiness what so ever. I like the feel of it, not overly sensitive. Has been very good on handing from slow speeds to freeways. Trip this week via freeway at 70-75 with gusty crosswinds gave a stable ride while seeing other vehicles being moved around. Maybe the 18" wheel/tire combination just works better. Ride is very good IMHO, better than our new RAV4. It also seems quieter. Can't say why Edmunds similar test truck had issues. Yes it may have a "dated" interior but it works and will age better under hard use. As a driver for 49 years I have figured things out and don't need lane assist, blind spot monitoring, etc. The backup camera is great giving you a slight wide angle view and is very bright. At night its way better than turning your head and looking! The sonar works flawlessly. On this still new engine I'm getting 19.5 mpg in suburban driving while running the ac full blast. I may see some improvement after the engine is "broke in". The backseat is not overly comfortable but it will seldom be used for riding so thats a non-issue for me, while the foldability is important. This truck fits my needs and wants. Other brands? Chevy seemed to feel less refined while driving and cost $4000 more. Add in how fast they rust out here and the choice was easy. Tacoma was even more expensive with a higher driver entry height. Prices on new Ranger and Gladiators were crazy high also. My truck was just under $30K. Best value overall, which made my choice simple. Loving it so far and Frontier dependability is nice to have around me.

If you are in need of the latest bells and whistles and tech, do not buy this truck. The cabin instrumentation is very basic re: no gps, no satellite radio. Heck, it even has a radio antenna. However, this is a comfortable and rugged vehicle and a whole lot cheaper than its prettier competitors.
