Used Nissan Frontier
In 1998, the Nissan Frontier was introduced as a compact pickup truck, but over the years it has evolved into a mid-sized pickup. Therefore, earlier versions of the Frontier are perfect for someone that needs the storage and functionality of a truck but doesn’t need to regularly tow heavy items. Look for newer used models if you want an upgraded capacity for hauling.
The Nissan/span> Frontier comes in a wide variety of sizes to fit your needs. More specifically, you can find several iterations of first generation used Frontiers for sale with lengths ranging from 184.3 inches (Regular Cab) all the way up to 217.8 inches (Crew Cab Long Bed). Both two- and four-wheel options are available in every generation of this enduring line of trucks.
Second generation Nissan Frontiers, model years 2005 through 2014, are larger than their predecessors. For this reason the newer generation could be considered more of a mid-size rather than compact truck. For example, the wheelbase of the first generation Regular Cab was 104.3 inches, while the second generation wheelbase extended to 125.9 inches. This makes a big difference if you are planning on consistently hauling large loads in the bed of your truck. The second generation Frontier also received significant updates both to the look and functionality of the truck. Side mirrors now fold in, the bumpers are more round and new alloy wheels provide a smoother, more stylish look. Inside the cab, simple controls make it easy to use and technology improvements such as climate control, navigation, and built-in Bluetooth hands-free cell phone compatibility make driving the Frontier more enjoyable than ever.
The Frontier is one of the safer pickup trucks on the market, especially more recent model years. The National Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) gave the 2010 Nissan Frontier the highest safety rating for side-impact, and the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the 2011 Frontier the highest ratings across front, side and roof categories. The third and current generation of this pickup debuts in model year 2015.
