The 2013 Nissan Frontier is the best compact truck which is suitable for almost every road condition. Like other models from the branch, the 2013 Frontier will not suffer too many changes from the predecessor, having only minor enhancements in style and the same old muscle-T attitude reinforced by an ironworks-inspired grille. Nevertheless, it provides a wide range of choices in the form of different models. There are different choices of trim levels, and if it repeats the 2011 roster those would be the base S model, midline SV, off-road-oriented PRO-4X, and top-line SL
Although the 2013 Nissan Frontier has strong competitors as in Toyota Tacoma, Ford Ranger and Honda Ridgeline, the company has been able to make a name for itself by following a policy guided by strict quality control and improved reliability.
The new Frontier will continue the tradition with the base model and a engines having a direct combination of four and six cylinders and rear wheel drive and four wheel drive. All of this means the 2.5 liter capacity is rated at almost 152 horsepower and 171 pound feet of torque. Also, the 4 liter capacity is rated at 261 horsepower and 281 pound feet of torque. Also, four-wheel disk brakes with antilock technology for better control in emergency stops would return as standard
The 2013 Nissan Frontier would be fairly equipped for a compact pickup. All models would again come with head-protecting curtain side airbags for both seating rows and both cab styles would retain flip-up rear seat cushions and a fold-flat front passenger seat. The base S models will find among their standard equipment and options the leather upholstery, a power moon roof, heated front seats, an overhead console, and an automatic-dimming inside mirror with compass.
Concerning the fuel economy, 2013’s Frontier is expected to have a rating for the four cylinder models around 19/23 mpg in city and consequently on highway. The v-6 models should be rated at 15/19 mpg with the manual transmission and 14/19 with the automatic one.
Although estimations about the price cannot be done until the release, words say the basic set of the cab styles, bed lengths, and power trains return for Nissan 2013 would range from $19,000 to $31,000.
Hence, sources say that Nissan is preparing to cease production of this truck by the end of calendar 2012. Even if that will happen, there have been others before it, so it’s not a premiere in the auto world, and not for Nissan.
