Just like the title says, where are the Nissan Frontiers built?

I'm sure someone has to have asked this before, but I couldn't find it when i searched, and I'm just curious to know.

Thats really great to know. I've been catching a lot of flak from all my buddies after I sold my Chevy for an import. Its nice to know though that my truck is build in the good 'ol USA.

I sometimes catch some flack for trading my Dodge Dakota for an "import"...

... until I ask them, "Which is more American?"

a. A Dodge Dakota Quad Cab made in Windsor, Ontario that I just traded
b. the Dodge Ram 1500 that it replaced, made in Mexico
c. or this Nissan Frontier, made in Smyrna, Tennessee?

That typically shuts them right up... :willy_nilly::willy_nilly:

BTW, the engines are also made in Tennessee, so don't let them throw out the old line about -- "it's just assembled there, but all the parts are imported..."

I think the location of manufacture is on the sticker/placard/decal on the driver's side door jamb.

The plant offers tours if you are ever in the Nashville, TN area. You can also tour the plant in Canton, Mississippi (just north of Jackson on I-55) which currently builds the Titan, Armada, Altima, and QX-56 Infiniti.

Umm.........Canada is in America and so is Mexico. Just thought I would be smartass, but it is true. I agree with you though.

Not just the motors, apparently everything. American made, Japanese owned.

I also agree it great to be all american built, supplied and assembled.

I actually drove down from New Hampshire in July 05 to tour the Smyrna plant.
Very impressive, and great folks to talk with. They said that 95% of the parts
for the Frontier were US produced.

So, we're more US economy friendly than many "Detroit" brands are. ( and no
big taxpayer bailout $$ ) .

Something got to be right there !!
