The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
4.0
5.5
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2018 Nissan Frontier is a good, basic truck, but there are far more modern options for not too much more. The 2018 Nissan Titan and Titan XD fill in the gaps left by others with a reasonable price, reasonable performance, and better warranty.
