Nissan Frontier Real Gas Mileage: Cons
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2013 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
I keep a detailed log of fuel economy. I commute on hour each way, every day. 50% of the time is spent at 65 mph on the highway, and the remainder between 50 and 60 on 2-lane country roads. Only a few stops in between. Very consistently getting 21.5 to 22.3 mpg. I rarely rev it above 4000 RPM - only when passing someone. That happens maybe once or twice per tank. I am underwhelmed by the fuel economy. Full-sized trucks with larger, stronger V8s get similar economy. see full Nissan Frontier review
2011 4dr Crew Cab 4.5ft bed 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
This 2011 Frontier Crew Cab at 4,000 miles is averaging 19-21 hwy, 16-19 city depending on weather and traffic conditions. see full Nissan Frontier review
2011 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
Well it has a 4.0L V6, so I guess I should have expected it. It does have nice power though. see full Nissan Frontier review
2011 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
Well, the EPA ratings are 15 city 20 Highway. The salesman I dealt with says it is easy to get 20 Highway, and I am not an aggressive driver. The V6 is geared low enough that it does 1800 rpm at 60MPH, so my light foot will help here. We will see ! see full Nissan Frontier review
2009 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 261-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
Even though it is a powerful V6, economy was on par with much more powerful V8 engines. see full Nissan Frontier review
2006 4dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 265-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic RWD
Fuel Economy is terrible with the V6. Just Awful see full Nissan Frontier review
2006 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 265-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
I cant complain about the gas mileage it was around 22mpg when new but with a lift and tires I have sucked some of that away see full Nissan Frontier review
2005 4dr Crew Cab 5ft bed 265-horsepower 4.0L V6
5-speed automatic 4WD, part-time w/low range
Overrated to what is identified. I know it is a truck but the mileage is far from what Nissan claims. see full Nissan Frontier review
2004 2dr Extended Cab 6ft bed 180-horsepower 3.3L V6
5-speed manual 4WD, part-time w/low range
Average 17/21 during the summer. A friends 96 F-150 (also 4x4) gets 16/20 with a V-8. Expected much better mileage from a small truck. see full Nissan Frontier review
