Car and Driver

You can choose between King Cab and Crew Cab versions, as well as between rear- or four-wheel drive, throughout most of the lineup. We'd recommend the 2011 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab if you need easier backseat entry and enough regular space for two kids; the King Cab configuration allows for occasional backseat passengers with small front-hinged rear access doors and flip-up backseats, but they're puny and uncomfortable for adults.

No matter which way you go, the supportive front seats afford a nice, upright driving position with good outward visibility. About the only down side for comfort is the Frontier's ride, which can get pretty choppy.

The Frontier can haul cargo—which is, after all, what matters most for a large subset of pickup buyers—only as well as other compact or mid-size trucks, although its stout frame is certainly up to the task. Beds for the Frontier are six feet long at most. But the Frontier offers several features not otherwise found in pickups in this price range. The cargo bed includes a factory-applied spray-in bedliner, and for those who need to secure small or heavy items in back, we recommend the available Utili-Track cargo tie-down system.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
