For those who still rely on pickup trucks for their daily bread, Nissan's Frontier is strong and flexible enough to cover many of the tasks that often get punted into the full-size category. Instead of full-size gas mileage, the Frontier offers a frugal four-cylinder version, a choice of body styles, a reasonably long bed and an optional V-6, not to mention automatic or manual transmissions. It's do-it-yourself attitude to the extreme--right down to the spray-in bedliner and the hooks and cargo holds that make its mid-size bed more useful. For those who worry about it, the Frontier's built in Tennessee, too.

Other Choices: If a full-size truck is a must, the new 2009 Dodge Ram and Ford F-150 are equals to Chevy Silverado/GMC Sierra.
