2009 Nissan Frontier


The Nissan Frontier has always got the good place in the midsize-truck segment. The Frontier was always a synonym of great off-road and on-road performance. Now Nissan continues its tradition and offers you truck that is a simple alternative to a full-size truck or a V-8. The frontier’s price is amazing - including manual locks and windows and 15-inch steel wheels with a five-speed manual transmission, the price on the window registered just is over $20,000. Remember that the drivetrain and general performance and quality are high as in every related Frontier.

Engine and Suspension

The Nissan stands on ladder frame made from high tensile-strength steel. On the front, Frontier has got double-wishbone independent suspension. Its rear suspension is just a regular solid axle with leaf springs. Besides economic @ 2.5 liters engine Nissan got something more powerful - the same 4.0L DOHC V-6 with Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control and the 3.5L engine found in many Nissan cars. This engine screams with 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque, up 11 hp and 11 lb-ft. These engines are quite economic also- it burns about 17 mpg city/21 mpg highway, though it’s in the 2WD King Cab model. What about transmission, beyond five-speed manual you can get a six-speed manual option with Special Edition, the other two transmissions are automatics only.

Nissan Frontier 2009 is a simple car with standard confort inside the cab in. The cheapest version got plenty of plastic and plasctic. In more expensive versions Frontier is a bit better but still away from ideal. Generally Nissan’s comfort is the weakest side of this car. Hmmm… There’s one thing I like - the shape of the seats, they realy suitted me. The front bucket seats, though firm, were wide and really comfortable during long drives. The door armrests lacked sufficient padding, as did the window sills. The King Cab’s rear jump seats are really usable in many situations.

Ride and Handling

I’ve enjoyed the benefits of a precise steering wheel, it is a great feature in this pickup. The steering generally is well designed, Nissan used the years of experience creating 4×4 trucks. The 2009 Frontier’s powertrain is really highest grade, the truck’s driving character was only marginally better. An engine is very sensitive and combining with steering system is really heplful navigating parking lots and city streets. You can feel very safe riding at highway speeds with full load. The feeling is totally secure. The technology used here combines the low turn ratio on lower speeds with sureness of driving at high speeds, no matter you’re empty or loaded. Now let’s focus on the brakes - they are very responsive and amazingly effective. These well designed brakes can stop you in every situation - well-used discs remained free of any fade and vibration.
