Inspired in the sense of "I'm going to steal all of your good parts." But even though you may have heard that stealing is bad (mmmkay?), the Frontier benefits greatly from it. It's now a contender in the mid-size pickup arena (it was formerly a compact), going up against the Chevy Colorado, Toyota Tacoma and Dodge Dakota. The Frontier uses a Titan chassis that's been hit with a shrink ray, numerous Titan suspension bits, plus the Titan's brash styling. Besides the standard-issue two-door, the Fronty will also come in extended-wheelbase King and Crew Cab variations, both of which sport extra doors. All models have a towing capacity of 6500 pounds, thanks to a 4.0 liter 265-hp V6 that can be hooked up to five speed auto or six speed manual gearboxes. Four-wheel drive and a smaller four cylinder engine are also available.
