About Nissan Frontier

The Frontier hails from a bygone era, yet it continues to serve with a right-sized do-it-all attitude. While the outside sheet metal is still intriguing, modern, and even new after all these years, the cabin has a lot of harsh plastic and a slightly legs-out driving stance that reflects how long it’s been since the Frontier was completely remodeled.

There are two types of cabs available: the King Cab and the Crew Cab. The Crew Cab is the clear choice for Frontier customers who need to transport more than two people on a daily basis, thanks to its four doors and ample rear seat capacity. A comfortable, upright seating position is comfortable for most drivers; larger drivers may find that the high floor level necessitates a legs-out seating position. When the road—paved or unpaved—becomes rough, the Frontier’s ride, like that of other pickups, especially shorter-wheelbase models, can become choppy.

When the going gets tough, the Frontier comes equipped with some useful factory features such as a sprayed-in bedliner, an optional Utili-Track cargo tie-down system, and a Value Truck Package that includes a trailer hitch, dual-zone climate control, a bed extension, and more.

There are two engine options: a 261-horsepower, 281-pound-foot 4.0-liter V-6 or a 152-horsepower, 2.5-liter inline-4. The V-6 engine is the star of the show, with pep and pulling power comparable to some smaller V-8s. Improvements to the engine have somewhat increased gas mileage over the years, helping to keep the V-6 competitive. The 4-cylinder is adequate for the commuter who requires a pickup on occasion, but it is unsuitable for heavy duty and isn’t significantly less expensive or more efficient than the V-6.

The Frontier is available with both 4×2 (rear-wheel drive) and 4×4 drivelines. In 4×2 form, 4-cylinder vehicles have a 5-speed manual transmission or a 5-speed automatic transmission; V-6 models have a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission. If you desire a 4×4 Frontier, the V-6 engine is your only choice, connected to either a 6-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic transmission.

The 2016 Frontier received “Good” ratings from the IIHS in moderate overlap front-impact, side-impact, and roof strength testing. Federal inspectors haven’t given the truck a rating other than a computed rollover score, for which the Frontier receives three stars.

The Frontier is available in five trim levels: S, SV, SL, Desert Runner, and PRO-4X. The Frontier S is the entry-level trim, with more equipment and choices available as you progress through the SV and SL trims. The PRO-4X model’s features and options were chosen with off-road and daily driving in mind; the Desert Runner is the rear-drive, slightly more streetable version.

This year’s changes are minor. Nissan made its NissanConnect communication module standard on higher model levels last year. It connects the car’s audio system to cellphones and enables infotainment mobile apps.

The Toyota Tacoma is far and away the best-selling competitor to the Frontier in the market. While it has improved slightly this year, the Frontier’s true challenge is the outstanding new Colorado and Canyon. They’re better at sitting and carrying, have improved dynamics and straight-line V-6 performance, and will be getting a new turbodiesel later this year.

The Frontier will continue to operate until a replacement arrives in 2017—which, by some accounts, cannot come soon enough.
