In the market for a new truck? AutoMedia.com ranks the Nissan Titan & Frontier Top 10 Trucks to Buy in 2014!
2014 Nissan Frontier Pro4X: One of the most versatile trucks on the market gets even more versatile in the 2014 Nissan Frontier Pro4X trim, which pumps up the standard 4.0L V6 engine to 261 horsepower and 281 lb.-ft of torque, and throws in Bilstein shocks, plus a locking rear differential. So you know it can handle anything you throw at it – all from $29,840. A new bodykit and speed sensitive steering make the Frontier Pro4X the most athletic compact truck on the market. We can’t wait to see performance versions of the Chevrolet Colorado that could compete, but for right now, nothing is messing with the Frontier Pro4X in its weight class.
2014 Nissan Titan: The one we really want is the 2015 Nissan Titan with the new design and 5.0L Cummins diesel V8, but in the meantime, the 2014 Titan is still a worthy entry into the full-size pickup market. Pricewise, the Titan slots in between the cheaper Tundra and more expensive Silverado, at $30,265 starting point, and has them both beat when it comes to handling. Only a 5.6L V8 engine is available, with 317 horsepower and 385 lb.-ft of torque, and that may be holding the Titan back with its unimpressive 13/18 MPG rating. The interior could use a refresh and there aren't many standard features, but if performance and capability are strictly your game then the 2014 Titan isn’t a bad choice at all. We just assume that the 2015 version will make a lot more sense to most truck-lovers, and their wallets.
