carves out a nice niche for itself
The 2009 Nissan Frontier doesn't offer styling that stands out much from the crowd, but most drivers will find themselves pleased with what the vehicle has to offer.
The Frontier has what ConsumerGuide refers to as a "middle-of-the-pack size"; with its design and style, it "carves out a nice niche for itself in the compact-pickup market." Although it is often referred to as compact class, the 2009 Nissan Frontier is truly a mid-size pickup, offering a six-foot bed and two extended cab lengths, including a King Cab and a Crew Cab. Crew Cabs offer the standard five-foot bed, but the six-foot bed is available on the SE and LE models of this size 2009 Nissan Frontier. Cars.com notices its "grille with angled chrome inserts and chrome-plated bumpers" and "short front and rear overhangs and large geometric fender flares." Edmunds likes its "rugged disposition." Car and Driver appreciates the Frontier's "romp-and-stomp styling."
Edmunds is one of the few sources to describe the interior. "The roomy cabins offer straightforward controls, comfortable front seats and an attractive design," they note.
The 2009 Nissan Frontier offers respectable styling that looks tough and rugged.
