The Nissan Frontier

Possibly the most popular truck in the Nissan truck lineup, the Nissan Frontier has been a popular truck since it hit the pickup market. So, what makes it so popular? If you talk to consumers and critics alike, they will be hard pressed to sell you on any major changes or upgrades that will wow new buyers. What they will tell you is that its consistency is what makes people buy and keep buying the Nissan Frontier pickup truck year after year.


Classically Designed Off-Road Capability

One of the biggest advantages of the Nissan Frontier is its off-road capabilities. For a mid-size pickup truck, you will not find any super high-tech advancements that claim to make off-roading better. Why? Well, some truce pick-up aficionados will tell you that these advanced tech modes for off-road handling are rendered not so useful because it’s not often that truck drivers even think to use them while on or off the road. And what good is super advanced driving and performance tech if you don’t use it? Not much good at all. With the Nissan Frontier, truck drivers love that this pickup’s brawn, strength, and performance off-road comes from its general engineering and design, rather than fancy tech that relies on so much switching and changing while driving.


A Cheaper Sticker Price

Of course, when you are in the market for a new midsize pickup truck you want to get a great value, and who doesn’t? While the Nissan will take a nominal amount of more gas per year in cost, its overall cheaper sticker price stacks it nicely above its midsize pick-up competitors when it comes to value and purchase price. When you average out purchase price and fuel economy, the Nissan Frontier gives drivers a bit more for their money when it comes to purchasing and investing in a new truck.


Good Old Fashioned Fun

Want another reason to love the Nissan Frontier? Here’s one, drivers love it because it’s just plain fun to drive. Whether you are driving your Nissan Frontier midsize truck to work or heading off down the road on a weekend vacation or for a sporting event, you’ll love the punchy and fun ride on this truck. The Nissan is fun and tough, – something any truck buyer can get behind.


The Nissan Titan

In 2017, the Nissan Titan got a complete redesign. A popular truck since its release, the Titan gives pick-up fans something to write home about in many areas, such as performance, towing capabilities, and driver-centric design features that are built to make driving and handling easier and more enjoyable than ever.


Work Pro

For drivers looking for a hard and bold work truck that can handle just about any task, they need to look no further than the 2018 Nissan Titan. The Titan, in its base trim level, is one of the most affordable pickups on the market and also offers so much in the line of capability and performance, drivers can be sure they are getting a great value. A few features include the push-button ignition, comfort forward cloth interior seating, lockable tailgate, LED bed lights, power window and door locks to keep your cargo safe on the road, and Nissan Connect, which offers a 5-inch color display and gives drivers full-control of their onboard navigation, performance, and entertainment connectivity.


Overall Performance

The 2018 Nissan Titan really impresses with its overall performance. The Titan comes equipped with a 5.6 L V-8 engine and 390 horsepower and 394 pounds lb-ft torque. The 2018 Nissan Titan also offers drivers a 7-speed transmission that balances the engine power to create a driver-friendly maneuverability.  For drivers who want off-road capability in their pickup, the Titan impresses again with its Pro4X Off-Roading trim. The Nissan Titan lets rivers push off-roading to the max while allowing high-speeds to be maintained.



Of course, safety is a key component when buying any vehicle, and when drivers are buying a pick-up safety comes into play in a few different ways. Because pick-up drivers have to consider more than just their interior on-board passengers, they also have to consider their cargo and towing gear and cargo. When it comes to safety on-board a pick-up truck, one of the most important factors that needs to be address is how confident drivers can be in the stability of their cargo and the control they have over said cargo. Luckily for Nissan Titan drivers, safety was a high-priority on its design and engineering stages. A few of the safety features onboard are:

Sway Control – Sway control is an invaluable feature on any truck that will be towing or hauling heavy cargo. When a turn or curve approaches, drivers of the Nissan Titan can be sure that they will not have their cargo and tow hitch stopping or swaying out of control.

Descent Control – This feature is also invaluable as it protects drivers and their cargo from sliding or rolling back while on a hill or a descent.

Rear Backup Camera – A necessity for large tow loads and hitches, the rearview backup camera allows drivers to be aware of what surrounds their truck, as well as what surrounds or backs up behind or on the sides of their hitched towing cargo.
