Nissan Frontier Review Belleville
It has been quite some time since I purchased my first pick-up truck. It was a 1963 Studebaker with a straight six and three on the tree. Cornering too quickly would result in the passenger door opening and my toolbox scattering contents across the intersection.
Times have changed.
The 2013 Nissan Frontier resembles my old Studebaker in one way only both are (were) considered trucks.
Here at Belleville Nissan you can try one of these trucks out and see for yourself. You may well be surprised at the comfort and civility that a smaller (read fuel efficient) pick-up can offer. The Frontier has more front legroom than any of the competition and can be purchased in a two door (with jump seats) or four door configuration.
I am about 6'5"" and there is more than enough room for me.
There is a 2.5 Liter DOHC (16 Valve) In-Line 4 engine available in the S package or you might want to opt for the 4.0 Liter (24 Valve) V6 which comes standard with the other trim levels. The former has 171 Horsepower and the latter has 261.
With the In-Line 4 you can tow up to 3,500 Pounds and with the V6 you can tow 6,500 in a the 4 X 2 and 6,300 in the 4 X 4. So, lot's of guts and plenty of glory and (how great is this!) every Frontier here at Belleville Nissan has 4 wheel disc brakes as standard equipment. Power is fun safety is king.
Oh, and in case you like paying less for your fuel every week, the Manual Transmission 4 is rated at 33 MPG Highway and the V6, with an Automatic, has been set at 31 MPG.
The 2013 Frontier also has a fully boxed ladder frame to lessen flex. Nissan has also built in the Utili-track storage system a fine feature for those folks who may actually use the bed for more than groceries.
The mid-size truck market has contracted but that does not mean a smart consumer will be left wanting. The Frontier pushes all the right buttons and ticks all the boxes.
Come in to Belleville Nissan and see for yourself. The 2013 Frontier is one darn nice truck.
