That 4.0 is a beast. I loved that about my 2011 pro-4x. I just didn’t love making a payment.

That's a nice truck, but man I just can't see paying almost 30k for a pickup.

On the Frontier, can you even get a manual transmission with the V6 4.0?

At least on the 2017's you could get a 6 speed manual on the 4x4's with the 4.0.


Same with the 2018 per the Nissan site

I can tell you for sure, that very few manuals come off the line, so if you want one, I suggest ordering one, as opposed to looking around a stealership...

I tried Nissan's "build it" feature, and it had no option to select a transmission once the V6 was selected.

Could just be that their website tool isn't programmed to accept changes.

Yeah I read an article yesterday actually that said of all the sales CarMax has done in 2018, something like 3.6% were manuals.
