The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Nissan Frontier is the best alternative to a full-size pickup: it's maneuverable, manageable, and a bit more conscious of gas mileage. Smart cargo solutions and good off-road capability make the 2013 Suzuki Equator a solid choice for weekend warriors.
