Though a new group of contenders have cropped up over the last year, the Nissan Frontier continues to lead the pack. In fact, the all-new Frontier model simply reasserts the truck’s dominance in the segment, reminding its newfound competition that it takes a good long while to get this excellent. From starting price to power to technology to efficiency, this new Frontier has it all.
The Frontier comes with a 4.0L V6 engine, an engine with 261 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque. Obviously, that’s a pretty big powertrain with a whole lot of power. However, if you’re looking for something a bit smaller, you can opt for the 2.5L I-4 engine with 152 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. Either way, the Frontier makes great use of its engines and delivers a smooth yet assured driving experience.
The truck also gets up to 19 mpg on the highway and 23 mpg in the city with the I-4 engine attached to a manual transmission. You’ll also find some awesome technological additions, with a moonroof, NissanConnect Navigation, Mobile Apps, and five-inch color display all available. Come see us here at Bates Nissan to learn more about the Frontier and all its bells and whistles—and what makes it the clear best midsize truck—today.
The 2014 Nissan Titan was named one of Edmunds most fuel-efficient trucks of 2014.
It used to be if you owned a truck that could tow anywhere near 9,500 pounds or offered a versatile interior large enough to store all of your cargo, fuel efficiency was one of those factors you just didn’t discuss. That is now a thing of the past. According to Edmunds’ list of the Top 9 Most Fuel-Efficient Trucks for 2014, it’s possible to have it all: Nissan’s Frontier and Titan deliver the performance, the style, and the fuel economy necessary to get the job done.
Edmunds compiled the list of gas-only trucks using the official ratings as defined by the Environmental Protection Agency. The Nissan Frontier took the second place ranking with a combined EPA rating of 23 miles per gallon. The 2014 Titan sealed the list at number nine with 15 mpg combined.
“People have associated pickup trucks with low gas mileage for many years, but we’re defeating that stereotype,” said Vice President Dan Mohnke, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations. “We’ve worked hard to produce pickups that not only provide excellent towing capability and ample cargo space, but also impressive fuel efficiency. This recognition by Edmunds validates our efforts to make fuel efficiency a priority across all platforms, from sedans to pickups.”
You can find both of these capable trucks in stock here at Bates Nissan.
