This is the third episode in our 2017 Nissan “Final Frontier” series. This time Roman and Andre are going live from the highway as they drive from Boulder, CO to Telluride, CO. We are in a 2017 Frontier S King Cab 2WD “worker truck”. It’s powered by a 2.5L four-cylinder with 152 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. We are happy to have a 5-speed manual transmission, but what is this truck like to drive on a long road trip? How fuel efficient is it in the real world when fully loaded? We are also hauling a Kawasaki 300 ATV. This is what this live video episode is all about.
The Nissan Frontier is currently the most affordable pickup truck you can purchase new in the U.S. It starts at $18,390 and our model has a final price of $20,730, including destination fees.
You asked us for base truck reviews, and we are happy to have this Frontier as our newest long-term pickup truck. We will have it for around six months, and we will be doing a lot of work and more reviews with it.
