About Nissan Frontier Crew Cab

The 2016 Nissan Frontier is the oldest member of what has recently become a resurgent midsize-truck segment, yet it continues to hold up surprisingly well. With last year's all-new Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon siblings, and this year's revamp of the venerable Toyota Tacoma, there's no doubt the Frontier faces stiff competition from rivals that offer better fuel economy and fresher amenities. Nevertheless, Nissan's midsize pickup boasts plenty of grunt when equipped with a V6 engine, a good mix of comfort and capability, and even some features still not available in rivals, including power-adjustable front seats and rear disc brakes (both lacking in the Tacoma) and push-button start (non-existent in the GM twins). Starting at just over $19,000, the Frontier also undercuts rivals in price.

"I bought this truck because I owned a Altima Coupe, and wanted to be up higher and wanted the cargo, and bed space. I didnt want a V8 due to fuel economy. My frontier is awesome, great for hauling things, plenty of room for me and my friends to hit the town. I have the V6, and love the pick up and go. I have no problem merging onto the highway, or keeping up with the cars in the fast lane. My only problem was there is no AUX/USB port, even in my SV. I didnt want to pay the extra 3,000 for a navigation system I wouldnt use. I dont see why you couldnt add the AUX plug many lower models sedans have them. Other than that I love my truck, and I drive it like this truck should be driven, no complaints and very smooth ride."

"If you're looking for a mid sized truck that has all the necessary features for comfort but also able to be the workhorse in your "honey-do" list, this is it! The spray in bedliner keeps the bed looking good after the hauling is done. Interior comfort is second to none with spacious front seats and plenty of leg room for back seat riders (in the crew cab). Be carefull though... The powerful V6 engine and smooth ride will lul the driver into believing that he/she is not traveling as fast as they are. Smooth, quiet and powerful. I couldn't ask for more."
