Edmunds.com, which provides several “Top 10” lists each year, featured nine “Most Fuel Efficient Trucks” this year due to a smaller number of available models meeting the necessary criteria. This year’s list included fuel-efficient gas-only models, and each vehicle’s ranking was determined by its Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) combined fuel economy rating.
The popular 2014 Nissan Frontier, which sold over 60,000 units in 2013, continues to be a leader in the mid-size truck segment, combining premium hardware and ample power. Frontier also offers an exceptional level of on- and off-road performance from either a 261 horsepower 4.0-liter DOHC V6 engine or an economical 152 horsepower 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder – which delivers 23 mpg highway (I4 King Cab 2WD M/T). The 2014 Frontier is offered in both King Cab and Crew Cab body styles and in 4x2 and 4x4 driveline configurations. Frontier is available in five trim grades: Frontier S, SV, PRO-4X, Desert Runner and SL (Crew Cab only).
The powerful, full-size 2014 Nissan Titan offers a unique combination of style, innovation and excellent value – including a range of body, bed and drivetrain configurations designed to fit a variety of buyer needs from a durable business tool to a versatile family adventurer. Titan is offered in King Cab and Crew Cab body styles with a choice of 4x4 and 4x2 drive configurations, along with two wheelbases and three bed lengths.
Every Titan comes equipped with a powerful 5.6-liter DOHC Endurance V8 rated at 317 horsepower and 385 lb-ft of torque and a maximum towing capacity of up to 9,500 pounds (when properly equipped).
Titan remains one of the most innovative designs on the market today, with features such as Wide-Open rear doors, factory-applied spray-on bedliner, Utili-trackÔ Bed Channel System and a lockable bedside storage compartment. The 2014 Nissan Titan is available in four well-equipped models: S, SV, PRO-4X and SL.
