About Nissan Frontier Crew Cab

Starting under $20,000, the new 2017 Nissan Frontier isn’t the newest entry in the midsize-truck segment, but it’s the most affordable and it continues to hold up well. Two body styles are offered, King Cab and Crew Cab as well as 2- or 4-wheel drive. The new Frontier faces stiff competition from its rivals the Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon and Toyota Tacoma, all of which offer better fuel economy, fresher styling and more amenities. However, Nissan’s midsize pickup boasts plenty of grunt when equipped with its large 4.0-liter V6 engine, which makes 261 horsepower, offering a good mix of comfort and capability, and even some features that aren’t ubiquitous in this segment, including power-adjustable front seats, rear disc brakes and push-button start.

"I spent a good 30 minutes putting together an awesomely detailed review for the pickup, but apparently this website doesn't like detailed reviews because it wouldn't let me post it til I shortened it to nothing. Long story short, this truck is freaking awesome! Go buy one if you are looking at midsize or even large size pickups unless you need the larger hauling capacities of full size pickups. At 15 city/20 highway, the gas mileage could be better but I think it is acceptable for the capabilities of the vehicle."
