Which is better
Wanna get a 4x4 truck. V6 nissan frontier or V8 Ford F-150 or Chevy Silverado 1500. Price cap 25,000 and max mileage 60,000?
Frontier for less money.
The Frontier out of those. But it is a smaller truck.
The one that will be the most reliable is the Frontier, so Frontier > F-150 > Silverado. You mention 2012 and newer so definitely stay away from the Chevy Silverado, but the F-150 should be OK; however, for the F-150 for minimal issues avoid any of the Ecoboost engines and just stick with the NA V8. Also, don’t go beyond MY 2018 when they used the Gen 3 Coyote 5.0 (it had oil burning issues) and avoid the 10-speed AT.
The Frontier is midsize while the F-150 is full-size. You didn’t list any other constraints so I can’t narrow it for you further.
Test drive them and see
