2005 Nissan frontier
mid-size - truck
With the look of a smaller Titan, the new Frontier is that and a bit more, should I say a bit less considering its difference in size. Borrowing the front grille from the Titan pickup, this new Frontier wears a smaller Titan front end just as well as the full size does. The only downside to the smaller Titan front end is that the front grille sticks out from the truck, but that also adds to the new tough looking front of this mid-sized pickup. With all that chrome on the front you would think that the headlamps would not be very noticeable, but on this truck they are, and in a big way. The new front headlamps follow a perfect line from the grille to the hood and onto and around the wheel wells. The new headlamps are well crafted but have one design flaw, that is they are designed with one light on top of the other which looks a bit odd, but hey if it works who cares. The new front bumper really shows that this is a truck meant for abuse with its low bumper guard for rocks and trees to the hidden fog lamps for extra outdoor protection, this front bumper guards against all the outdoors hazards. If you’re an avid outdoors person this truck likes to accommodate for your lifestyle, with an integrated roof rack on the four-door model, which helps when you bring more than one piece of sports equipment.
Nissan also likes to help in protecting your paint job with the addition of large wheel wells to fend off scratches, which could have occurred on your truck without them. It seems Nissan has decided to keep the 4-point wheels from the previous four-door model, but without forgetting to change them a bit. The little boxy styling is followed onto the side windows where it cuts at the back of the rear window to create its own unique look for the Frontier to set it apart from other pickups. At the rear of the Frontier, Nissan has brought there new rear styling feature, the plastic which surrounds the rear symbol and rear gate handle, and adds to an easier clean up after being out in the woods. Like its bigger brother the rear has stayed simple but inspiring with its flat surfaced rear lights and large rear wheel wells. With the release of a full sized pickup this year, Nissan has not forgotten about the truck, which brought them into the pickup market in the first place. Nissan has remade this past favorite a great truck once more for another generation to grow up with.
