The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.0
8.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2016 Nissan Frontier is an aging mid-size truck that's still attractive and useful, but in some ways outpointed by its new GM rivals. The 2016 Nissan Titan XD is a smart pick for semi-heavy pulling power, but if you rarely or never tow big trailers, you're better served by a light-duty pickup.
