People shopping for a compact or mid-size truck expect better fuel economy; but over the past several years, with some models of the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 stretching into the mid-20s, that hasn't been the case.

Now the 2013 Nissan Frontier improves on that complaint, somewhat. With the in-line four, the Frontier gets up to 19/23 mpg with a manual transmission, or 17/23 with the automatic, while V-6 models improve to as high as 16/22.

Those numbers are better than the Titan; but the Titan is one of the thirstiest pickups. Several full-size models in base V-6 form still do better for 2013.

 

Conclusion

V-6 models of the 2013 Nissan Frontier are no longer as thirsty; but even the four-cylinder Frontier isn't all that fuel-efficient.

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.
