Nissan Frontier for hauling a bike ?'s

I'm thinking about getting a Frontier so I can load up the bike on the bed. Do I really need the V6 to haul one bike? It's an extra $2k for the V6.

It might be sluggish but you can do it. If you can get a financing deal I would definitely go with the v6. It's not going to add much to your payment.

if you are planning on throwing one bike in the bed, i don't think you'd need the 6. i guess what you'll have to look at is how often you plan on doing that, if you are going to have multiple bikes in there, and if you think you may want a trailer in the future.
