1986 Nissan Pickup Performance


Nissan was originally known as Datsun, until the company changed its name in 1933. In 1986, Nissan developed and marketed a new line of pickups designed specifically for the American consumer.


  • The standard engine on a 1986 Nissan pickup was 2.4 liters and capable of 106 horsepower; an optional 3-liter, V-6, 140-horsepower engine was also available. Fuel capacity was 15.9 gallons, with the average mileage of 15 MPG in the city and 24 MPG on the highway.


  • Liter refers to the measurement of engine displacement, the volume of air and fuel displaced by an engine's cylinders. In the case of the 1986 Nissan pickup, there can be either four or six cylinders.

    Horsepower measures the speed of a vehicle, and is derived from the ability of the average horse to carry a weight of 100 pounds over 330 feet in one minute, which equals one horsepower.


  • According to performance tests, the vehicle handles similar to a car. The engine power requires the driver to apply gentle pressure to the accelerator or risk spinning the back tires. Because of gas tank capacity and fuel economy, the pickup is also capable of long distance trips.
