I would bet money on it because alot of the dealer are getting stuck with the 2004,thats what I think,but Nissan should just drop the price and just sell them for the invoice already,they can still make a few bucks, so they can just pump out their old stock.The dealer in NJ by my house only has one Le crew cab and thats its and a ton of o4,who wants a an o4 when the 2005 is a hot looking truck!!but I'm looking for a king cab.

I have looked at 05's on 4 dealer lots and everyone has had them parked in the back area of the dealership. They are not pushing them at all and a few of the sales guys out front don't even know they have them. I told them they are listed on their internet inventory and they had to go figure it out. Of course we walk by a dozen 04's on the way to see the 05's.
Anybody got any more info on prices/discounts? I have had 2 dealers say they want full MSRP and then call me back and offer $750 off that. Had another say he thought he could sell a not fully loaded LE for $1500 off, but I had already told him it wasn't the one I was looking for so I think he was just fishing.
#313 of 2122 is the long bed gone for good?

Does anyone know if they will bring back the crew-cab long-bed. I'm trying to decide between a taco doublecab LB and the frontier. I like the longer bed to get stuff into it. If Nissan is planning a LB in the future, I might hold off until '06. Anyone in the know?

I don't understand Nissan's marketing strategy.
Here they have a hot new product, that they could sell tons of, and they have them hidden away, out of view on the back lot. Are they getting ready for a National blitz on the Frontier's anytime soon? Or are they trying to unload the 04 losers before telling folks, "look what we have!"
Makes you wonder who is running the show. If it were me, I'd have banners out front saying "NEW ARRIVALS - COME TEST DRIVE THE 2005 FRONTIER'S!"
And I'd be running ads on radio and TV, like the old Frontier ads where the truck comes tearing out of the mist in slo-mo, with lightening flashing in the background as rocks are being sprayed from behind it. It was marketing BS, because that model of the Frontier was powered by the old V6, which was severly lacking compared to the 4 liter in the current model.
Roll it out with the fanfare it deserves Nissan! Shout it from the roof tops.
This truck ROCKS!

I agree that nissan needs to get there act together as far as there options. On the website there is no blue seats option but they obviously have them not that i really want them but still. And i really think its funny the fact that there saying you have to get the sunroof option in order to get the upgrade rocksford system but yet i've seen LE's with the upgraded system with no sunroof. Plus i wish you could get an LE without the roof rack and running boards. I like the clean look myself but i dont want a nismo and sacrifice a smoother ride and more money to do without. Oh and if you have radiant silver why on earth would you need granite which is just a variant of the radiant silver give us another color.

What is it? I couldn't find it mentioned in the Nissan Website?
#319 of 2122 2005 Frontier Bumper Swap?
Jan 06, 2005 (1:16 pm)
I just bought a 2005 Frontier a week ago and love it so far.
I have a Storm Gray LE Crew Cab with the color matched bumpers, but I want the Chrome bumpers for front and rear. I ordered them through Nissan parts, but it is a National backorder and I have no idea when they will come in.
Is there anybody with a new 05 Storm Gray that is willing to trade their chrome bumpers for the color matched ones? I realize it's a long shot, but I don't know how long my wait will be. I am in Southern California.
Email me at HKINGS at aol.com if anybody is interested!
Thanks so much in advance!
