Trucks Getting Too Expensive? 10 Reasons to Get a Nissan Frontier


Quote:
The pickup truck market in the United States is booming. Last year, Ford sold nearly 900,000 units of its F-Series line of trucks. There are competitors from all of the major players.

Generally speaking, there are three types of trucks. There are heavy duty trucks like the Ford F-350 or Ram 3500. There’s the half-ton truck, like the F-150, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 or the Ram 1500. Then there’s the mid-size, such as the Toyota Tacoma or Chevrolet Colorado.

Over the past decade, to keep up with safety requirements and consumer demand, trucks have grown in size. The midsized trucks of today are as large as the half-ton trucks from the 2000s. There was a time where nearly every truck you could buy would fit securely in a garage.

A very level headed take on the trucks pros and cons, which I was surprised to see published in 2018 when you consider that the Frontier is the most criticized mid-size truck on the market.

My wife is a Fleet manager for a large company and she has convinced them to go with the Nissan Frontier over the new Ford Ranger.. She ordered them the same truck I drive. 2018 4wd Frontier Crew Cab SV Long-Bed with Value truck package.. The Frontier was $6000.00 Cheaper than a Ford Ranger similarly equipped. She said what won management over was the Longevity of the Frontier, Cost of Service, and Resale value after 5 years.

Its a good truck, especially for the money. Another feature that was not mentioned is that the Frontier is honest about being a truck. It drives and feels like a truck. Most of its competitors strive to be as car like as possible. It is not harsh or uncomfortable at all but it does feel like a truck. I like that, I am sure a lot of people do as well.

I'm trying to work out if this article, will make it better or worse for me trying to buy one early next year.
I was hoping the new trucks coming out and the new Ranger would make people sell their Frontiers for an upgrade, allowing me to enter the market.

I think you'll be fine, the Tacoma is the truck that has the most to lose when the new Ranger comes out. The Frontier has always been a bargain truck, even more so these days given the price tags for the newer midsizes.

I have to agree here …. all my vehicles are 10-20 years old (2006 Nismo), because I like the simpler, no-frills, no-bs vehicles. Don't care for all the newest technological wonders, beeping, flashing, talking crap … just give me a good solid truck.

(okay …. I do like my electric windows … LOL )

2006 Nismo Off-Road 2WD CC Pretty much pure stock.
