Nice primer on offroad modes with our platform

Postby palmerwmd » Mon Oct 19, 2020 12:48 pm

Well ok, technically its a Frontier but it rides on same platform and has very similar offroad modes.
Nearly the same truck as our SUVs...
Its billed as a"review" but mid video has some nice examples of going over various situations in different drive modes.

Thanks for the share, that was actually a short and sweet video. Did you just pick up that 2011 Xterra Pro4x? I got into a fender bender a couple weeks ago with my 2002 Frontier and I have a feeling the other party's insurance may deem my truck totaled and I've been looking at the Tacoma TRD Off Road & the Frontier Pro4x. I was thinking about just buying my Frontier back if they do total it because it will cost me under $500 to fix it, accept their pay out, sell the Frontier after repairing and then pick up a Frontier Pro4x. I'm obviously leaning towards the Frontier at half the price, half or below half the mileage, and performs just as well as the Tacoma.

PS: Have you looked at those prices?
Those brand new 2020s are between 5-7k off MSRP!!!
That puts 'em the lower trims only a couple grand more of a lower mile '17.

IMO anyone shopping for a used Frontier needs to check out the new ones as well.
