Size & Maneuverability

The Frontier has grown over the years with various redesigns, a trend that's affected both trucks and cars. That said, it's still pretty easy to drive the Frontier in the city.

Even on Chicago's narrow downtown streets, which are often lined with waiting cars half-pulled to the side of the road, you have a good sense of where the corners of the Frontier are, which enables you to scoot around other vehicles without having to slow to a crawl, as you might in a full-size truck. It's no more difficult to maneuver the Frontier in a parking garage than it is to pilot a traditional midsize sedan there.

Truck buyers will like the Frontier's tall stance for improved visibility and ground clearance. The V-6 Frontier I tested was an SE 4x4 trim, and it offers a high seating position that gives you a great view of the road ahead without requiring extra effort to climb into the cab, like some full-size trucks demand.
