2012 Nissan Frontier Review

The Nissan Frontier has been on the market in one form or another since 1998. This is a truck that has many names. It can be a smaller work truck, a backcountry rider and a family transporter. The 2012 Nissan Frontier is an affordable truck for you and your lifestyle.

The performance of the 2012 Nissan Frontier is exceptional. It has all the features to ensure it can just about anything you throw at it. It is equipped with 4-wheel ventilated disc brakes, overslung rigid leaf-spring rear suspension and steel double-wishbone front suspension.
It also offers electronic locking differential, hill start assist, hill descent control and optional PRO 4X4 all-wheel drive.

The outer design of the 2012 Nissan Frontier is athletic and rugged. This little truck has some big attitude. The wheel arches are bold and ready to get dirty. The clean lines from the hood to the rear are aerodynamic and sleek looking. The chrome adds a polished look and the roofracks add ruggedness.

The cabin of the 2012 Nissan Frontier is built for comfort and convenience. The passenger space is massive, there are real size doors for the rear seats, the rear bench seat can seat five and is also 60/40 flip folding for added cargo space when you need it. Talk about versatility.

The 2012 Nissan Frontier ranks highest in the J.D. Power and Associates Vehicle Dependability Study for 2012. This is one of the highest honors you can get in the automotive industry. Nissan should be proud of this creation.
