Must-Have Accessories for Your Truck

You’ve got the truck, now what will you need to go with it? There are plenty of ways to amp up your pickup, adding more personality, more capability, or whatever you’d like. Here are some must-haves on the list of possible accessories for your truck.

Truck Bed Extender

When you’re in need of some extra room in the bed of your pickup, it’s helpful to have a truck bed extender handy. This accessory allows you leave the tailgate open and to support long items that would otherwise hang free out the back of your bed.

Tie Down Straps and Tow Hooks

If you recently purchased a Nissan Frontier® or a Nissan Titan® from Nissan of Lake Charles, you likely have plans to carry plenty of cargo, and for that purpose you will need the straps and hooks to make it possible. Owning a sturdy set of tie down straps is imperative when carrying heavy loads safely.

Loading Ramp

Loading that lawnmower or your family’s off-road recreational vehicle just got a whole lot easier, thanks to a helpful loading ramp accessory.

Winch

Speaking of off-roading, having a winch on hand is extremely helpful should a vehicle get stuck in the mud. You can also use a winch to help carry the extra heavy loads. When it comes to getting the most out of your truck, anything that can offer extra power and performance does right by our standards.

There aren’t many options when it comes to a midsize truck, even with GMC and Chevrolet back in the mix. While still limited, more competition means other automakers have to step up their game and that’s exactly what Nissan has done. The 2016 Nissan Frontier will come with new paint colors and a slight price increase.

The 2016 Frontier S King Cab 4×2 with a five speed manual transmission starts at $18,090. That’s easily the cheapest you can find a new truck for these days. The top end of the Frontier’s spectrum comes is the Pro-4X crew cab models. They run in at $35,410, still not a bad price for a fully loaded pickup.

Nissan’s also looking to appeal to the color conscious as well. New additions to the color spectrum for 2016 include copper, gun metallic, and magnetic black. That brings the total up to eight colors.

The 2016 Frontier comes with two engines. A 2.5-liter four cylinder, with 152 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque, is available in King cab models only. The more powerful 4-liter V6 engine runs in with 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque. The Frontier is available in five trims for the 2016 model year.

At Nissan of Lake Charles, we can’t wait to see the latest in affordable midsize pickup trucks!
