8. Nissan Frontier
The Nissan Frontier is the Japanese automaker’s light truck, which actually enjoys quite a bit more success than its full-size sibling. It seems that Japanese sensibilities translate better into small vehicles than beefy trucks. The Frontier sold over 990,200 units since it was launched in 1997 and is also in need of a redesign to stay current, though the company says an update is unlikely for at least two more years. The Frontier is now one of only two light trucks on the market, with the GMC Canyon/Chevy Silverado discontinued along with the Ford Ranger and Dodge Dakota.
