Not everyone needs a full-size pickup truck. For many, a smaller truck will suffice and that's where the Nissan Frontier comes in, with seating for four.

One of the few compact pickup trucks left, the Nissan Frontier comes equipped with forward-facing rear flip-up seats, a fold-flat front passenger seat and options galore.

The 2.5-liter four-cylinder Frontier may not have all the interior bells and whistles that some of its counterparts do, but it puts on 152 horsepower. The Frontier SV models come equipped with AM/FM radio with four speakers and a 4.3-inch color display as well as with an optional V-6 engine.

The Nissan Frontier boasts 6,500 pounds of towing capacity and accessories such as a bed tent that turns any Frontier truck bed into a level sleeping area. This pickup truck isn't shabby when it comes to safety either, despite its relatively low sticker price compared to other pickup trucks. The Frontier comes standard with a full complement of front, side and roof-mounted air bags.
