The Nissan Frontier is one of the oldest running trucks in the U.S. market right now giving it a rich history. Called the Navara in global markets, it started out in production in Smyrna, Tennessee in 1997. In 2012 Nissan moved its Frontier product from Smyrna, TN to a more modern plant in Canton, Mississippi. With its 4 doors and compact body, it was made to replace the Nissan D21 Hardbody truck which was steadily losing popularity. In 2004, it was treated to a redesign effectively calling it into its second generation.
There aren’t many cars today that sport the unique shape that defines the Chrysler “Public Transportation” Cruiser. Having a relatively short run of 9 years, the PT Cruiser gained a die-hard following of fans that love it for its hybrid looking design. To the surprise of many who see it, the vehicle is classified as a truck, based on a calculation of fuel economy, even though many assume it is labeled as a car due to its hatchback design.
