Today, drivers need trucks that offer ideal combinations of power and fuel efficiency. Not wanting for power, Nissan’s 2014 Frontier and Titan have proven themselves among the segment’s most fuel-friendly and have found themselves ranked among Edmunds.com’s “Top 9 Most Fuel Efficient Trucks for 2014.”
The 2014 Nissan Frontier tied for second with 21 miles combined, and the Titan closed out the list with 15 mpg combined.
“People have associated pickup trucks with low gas mileage for many years, but we’re defeating that stereotype,” said Dan Mohnke, vice president, Nissan Chief Marketing Manager & Marketing Operations, in a press release. “We’ve worked hard to produce pickups that not only provide excellent towing capability and ample cargo space, but also impressive fuel efficiency. This recognition by Edmunds validates our efforts to make fuel efficiency a priority across all platforms, from sedans to pickups.”
According to Edmunds’ criteria for their “Top 9 Most Fuel Efficient Trucks for 2014,” only fuel-efficient gas-only trucks were considered for the list with each model limited to one appearance. Were it not for this qualifier, the Frontier would have made the list a second time for its efficient 4.0-liter 24-valve V6 option (available in the SV V6 and Desert Runner trims).
