2006 Nissan Frontier is Big, Bold and Powerful, Offers Full-Size Hardware in a Mid-Size Truck

The 2006 Nissan Frontier pickup, which was completely redesigned for 2005, positions Nissan squarely in the midsize pickup market. The Frontier includes a number of features shared with the Nissan Titan, including its rugged suspension design, innovative factory-applied spray-on bedliner, Utili-track bed channel tie-down system and fully boxed, all-steel frame based on the Titan's F-Alpha platform.

'The award-winning Titan sets the standard for innovation in pickup design, regardless of size. Titan, in turn, set the tone for the creation of the Frontier,' said Mark McNabb, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division. 'With the Titan and the Frontier, we're solidifying Nissan's truck presence in both the full-size and mid-size truck segments – essentially giving buyers the same tough truck in large and extra large.'
