2011 Nissan Frontier SV Extended Cab Truck

2011 Nissan Frontier Review

(4 Stars)  One of the top compact trucks

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
The Nissan Frontier is Nissans newest pickup and is now in its own second generation. It competes in the dwindling midsize truck segment. Once this was one of the most contested genres, but of late, there are only a few auto makers who remain to compete in this class. The Nissan frontier is one of the main competitors here.

This generation of frontier is more comfortable and civilized than the previous iteration. It features a very car like ride and proves far easier to maneuver than its looks would suggest. The ride is, however, rather on the firm side. The Frontiers strength comes from a fully boxed, ladder frame, construction completely of steel. This frame rides on control arm suspension up front paired with an old school solid rear axle, with leaf springs to absorb the bumps.

Power for the Frontier comes from two engine choices; a base 2.5 liter four cylinder making 152 HP or a 4.0 liter V-6 good for 261 HP. Either engine can be matched to either a 5 or 6 speed manual. A five speed automatic comes as an optional transmission.
