Nice truck and it's one of the few brands for a small truck I'd consider other than a Toyota and it's a good thing you got the SC since 180hp would make it as slow as my 4Runner which if I had the optional SC I could have 230hp but even with that my Focus would still be a tad quicker.

Yesssuurrrrr!! The supercharger really woke the Frontier(and Xterra) up back in the day. A lot of truck for the money. Brand new this was a $21-$23K truck. Most of the Supercharged models could set you back $24 to $26K and was because Nissan loaded them down with stitched leather on the steering wheel and shift knob,leather interior,different wheels and tires and the Rockford Fosgate Audiophile package(I'm surprised I remember all of this stuff,lmao.).

I remember them new and really wanted an SC'd Xterra which along with the 4Runner is one of last truck based SUVs meaning they sit on a true full frame and no uni-body in sight.

As for the Pathfinder the only path those things blaze now are to the mall. Now let's see some pics of the new toy,here's mine getting a little 3 wheel action last summer.

I heard that the s/c frontier is fairly anemic but only because it's heavy and it doesn't feel like it's got the oomph that's associated with a f/I truck car.

Yeah,the SC'd version isn't real quick but it's a big improvementn over the ones w/o the SC but once they dropped the SC and released the 260ish HP engine in them they are reasonably quick to 60mph. The Toyota RAV4 with the V6 is almost as quick as the Focus ST with no FI.

MotorTrend got a 14.7 from a RAV4 which is pretty quick;for reference my Integra Type R ran a 14.5 in stock trim and my 1st gen AWD DSM's best was a 14.8 off the showroom floor.
