The 2013 Nissan Frontier is the company’s newest rollout, featuring a vehicle where “innovation meets ambition.” This midsize pickup truck is fresh off the assembly line at its new production center in Canton, Mississippi. Nissan introduced the truck in late August 2012.
If you prefer a truck that offers power at a smaller size, the 2013 Nissan Frontier might be worth a look. Several car rating sites have given the 2012 model two thumbs up. Like its Toyota Tacoma cousin, the Frontier has a sturdy V6 and an improved ride. Like the Tacoma, it can tow up to 6,500 pounds. Overall, the truck has an impressive 261 horsepower rating.
The 2013 Frontier comes in a crew cab and king cab style. Buyers report that the seats are comfortable with plenty of leg room.
One interesting feature of this model is the ability to expand the crew cab with a pull-down extender. This is helpful if you need to load bigger items in the back on occasion.
The Nissan Frontier is also a winner when it comes to safety. It has high crash safety scores and a strong roof to withstand all types of accidents.
It also has battery warnings, tire pressure warnings, brake fluid alerts and oil pressure notices to help you keep your truck in top shape.
Although not many people own this newer truck, the company is expecting good reviews based on the review records of last year’s model. Buyers can choose from the base model, the SL trim, PRO 4X or midline SV. The base model will generally start at $19,000 and go up to $31,000 for the upgraded features.
Resale value is another aspect to consider when you’re getting ready to purchase a new vehicle. Because the Frontier is always a hot seller, the resale value on the 2013 model should be high. In fact, JD Power and Associates rated the vehicle as one of the best midsized trucks on the market.
Whether you like to drive around town or do some serious off-roading, the 2013 Nissan Frontier can accommodate any driving style with its custom features.
