The 2012 Nissan Frontier S King Cab and Frontier SV King Cab models have landed a spot on Insure.com's "Least Expensive Vehicles to Insure" list. The Nissan Frontier was among 900 vehicles in the website's annual survey to determine which vehicles help consumers keep their insurance payments low.

"We've had a lot of fun in our recent advertising showing the Nissan Frontier in extreme fantasy situations, such as skiing down mountains or serving as emergency landing gear for a jet airplane, but the truth is, Frontier is a great purchase option for many practical reasons," said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, in a press release. "Insurance can be a significant part of the total cost of ownership for a new vehicle and we are pleased to see the Frontier included in this year's Insure.com ranking, which validates Frontier's outstanding value equation."

"Our annual rankings provide consumers with a view of the best insurance deals of the year," said Amy Danise, editorial director of Insure.com., in a press release. "If you want to save money on your insurance bill and you're in the market for a pickup truck, the Nissan Frontier is an excellent choice."

Nissan also points out that in the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) 2011 Texas Truck Rodeo, the Frontier pickup was awarded first in the Midsize Pickup Truck category; Kelley Blue Book added it to its "Best Resale Value Award: Top Ten Models" for model year 2012; and J.D. Power and Associates named Frontier as the top midsize pickup in its 2012 Vehicle Dependability Study.
