2012 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab PRO-4X: Introduction
The mid-size truck market in the United States is essentially a footnote to the sales behemoth that is the full-size truck segment, a reality that is reflected by the scarcity of options out there for anyone interested in a pickup that offers more modest dimensions than the current, hyper-competitive crop of large domestic and import trucks. One of the few remaining mid-size contenders is the Nissan Frontier, a vehicle that hasn't suffered from the lack of buyer attention in terms of its engineering, styling, or capabilities, and which presents one of the best-rounded packages amongst small pickup options.
The 2012 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab PRO-4X we drove is the most off-road ready member of the Frontier lineup, but it also features solid practicality and good day-to-day drivability. Together, these attributes help to make it an appealing choice for those who want a truck that doesn't require its own zip code when it's time to park for the night.
