The Best Truck I've Ever Owned! — I've had various vehicles/trucks throughout the years and I love my Nissan Frontier. This is one of the toughest trucks I've ever owned. I take it off-road every other weekend and it really takes a beating. The 4.0L V6 has plenty of power (265hp), but I'm still looking to add some additional horsepower (if you know what I mean). If you're in the market for a truck - check this one out!

Could use more power (but what car cannot)

Nissan Frontier 4x4 — Drives the best of all the mid-sized pickups I tested. This drives more like a decent car than a truck. I have the six speed and it is great fun to drive especially when the tachometer crosses 3-grand. It also has the most room inside of all the mid size pickups, without the cost and size of a full size.

Awsome Truck!! — One of the very best trucks I have ever owned. The ride is great, interior is extremely roomy and the haul load is awsome. I can hook up to almost anything I want to and not worry about not enough power to pull it. Goes great in the mud too.

Sporty Midsized Truck That Is A Lot Of Fun To Drive. — My only complaint is that I had more room in the king cab, but really it's a non-issue so long as you know there is pleanty of room for the driver and passenger. Lots of HP for a midsized truck. Hauls everything and then some. Reliable, well built, handles great, and feels solid on the road.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Yota Slayer — This truck is very well built, it has excellent power much more than any stock tacoma or ranger. It drives like a dream and has never given any trouble what so ever however, it only gets 17 mpg and has a horrible turning radius.

Amazing — The Frontier is my favorite car. The it is foreign and a little more expensive to fix the engine ins nearly brand new. Also it is a Nissan so if you shot the engine with a shot un it will still run. It is perfect for anything you might need. It is a four cylinder so it isn't great for pulling trailers but if you want to pull trailers don't get a Frontier.

Great For What It Was Designed For, But Leans A Little Too Much In The Twisties — Got the truck for its towing ability & only occasional off-road use --I'm satisfied with the overall package, but not too thrilled with the body lean towing a motorcycle trailer through the mountains. Otherwise: solid "A" grade on an overall scale.
