For 2013, Nissan has made some subtle but important changes to the Frontier pickup truck. First and foremost, Nissan has lowered the price of King Cab and Crew Cab models in all trim levels. A new SV Value Truck Package adds comfort and convenience options previously found on the SV Premium Utility Package. A Desert Runner model on 4x2 King and Crew Cabs SV V6 models is also new. Nissan has made improvements in engine efficiency, as well as subtle aerodynamic enhancements, and the result is improved fuel economy on nearly every Frontier model. Minor equipment changes complete the updates to the 2013 Nissan Frontier.
Maneuverability; affordability; fuel-saving 4-cylinder base model; very capable V6; innovative storage solutions
The Nissan Frontier is one of the lowest-priced pickups available; and with the discontinuation of the Ford Ranger for 2012, it's also one of the few compact trucks available at any price. Four-cylinder Frontier models fill most needs for a basic truck--provided it's only light-duty tasks such as hauling firewood or appliances--while V6 models are the way to go for those with serious towing in mind. In any of its variants, the Frontier is more maneuverable and easier to park than full-size pickups, while Crew Cab models have enough space for four adults. Compared to other small trucks the Frontier line still offers some innovative storage features, such as removable rear-seat storage boxes and the Utili-Track adjustable tie-down system. Off-road purists will also like the complete set of go-anywhere equipment and interior comforts in the PRO-4X models, while in general, the Frontier can handle heavier-duty tasks than some other compact trucks because of its shared frame and structure with the larger Titan.
