2016 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab vs. 2016 Nissan Frontier King Cab Naperville IL
Although Captain Kirk might say otherwise, space isn't the final frontier. In fact, they're available on the lot right now. And if you're a driver who needs the toughness and utility of a truck but also wants to enjoy nice fuel economy at the same time, then a midsize truck like the 2016 Nissan Frontier is just the ticket for you. And the 2016 Nissan Frontier, which is available in Naperville IL and comes in either Crew Cab or King Cab models, is the perfect fit if you're a value-conscious driver who enjoys the ability to save on gas and still tow a boat to the dock for weekend fishing trips.
The difference between the Crew Cab models and the King Cab models for the 2016 Nissan Frontier is basically their size. With the 2016 Frontier Crew Cab, you'll have plenty of towing power and more room on the inside, while King Cab models tend to be smaller and get better fuel economy overall, while still providing you with nice towing power.
For example, Crew Cab models all come with a 4.0L engine that cranks out 261 HP, and across the board all models can tow at least 6,100 pounds. On the other hand, King Cab models come either with a 4-cylinder engine with 152 HP or a V6 engine with 261 HP, depending on the configuration you choose. And though the more lightweight King Cab models can get up to 19 mpg city, 23 mpg highway, the towing capacity for 4-cylinder engine versions of these lightweight models is only 3,500 pounds, a figure which jumps to 6,500 pounds in V6 models.
