Driving Impression

“”

The 2.5-liter four-cylinder Frontier is quick enough around town, but it strains to keep up with freeway traffic.

The truck changes its character quite dramatically with the 4.0-liter V6 that thrums at idle. Its 261 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque make it downright quick when the bed is empty, and up to the job when the bed is loaded, including towing up to 6500 pounds. The majority of V6 Frontiers will have the five-speed automatic. The five-speed manual works well with the engine’s power and torque curve, and while the six-speed manual offers a taller top gear for cruising at lower revs, the throws are long.

The Frontier’s ride is best in the two offroad models, the Desert Runner and PRO-4X. That can only be because of the Bilstein dampers and bigger tires, never mind that they’re all-terrain tires. If you drive a lot on gravel roads, it may pay to get the Desert Runner or PRO-4X.

As for handling and maneuverability, a lot depends on the cab and bed, the overall length of the vehicle. The direct steering makes the Frontier entertaining, and the suspension does a good job of keeping the truck under control. But it is harsh and even choppy over rough pavement, especially with an empty bed.

The Frontier’s four-wheel-drive system, unlike some all-wheel-drive vehicles, isn’t intended for dry pavement, but rather off-road. The Pro-X is king there, with its locking rear differential.

Walk Around

The Frontier looks brawny, with its swelling and curving fenders. The nose, with its massive chrome grille, appears to be an afterthought.

Interior Overview

Editor:
New Car Test Drive
“”

Compared to the superb GM trucks, the Nissan cabin lacks warmth or charm. It’s simple and clean, but also boxy and old, heavy on hard plastic. The center console has no significant storage, just some shallow slots. The leather in the SL and PRO-4X models is high quality.

The front seats are very comfortable, although most models don’t have a height adjustment, so drivers with long legs may be short on legroom. It’s easy to climb in and out. Forward visibility is excellent.

The rear seats in the King Cab are only good for short distances, while in the Crew Cab there’s better legroom, although still tight at the shoulders and elbows if there are three back there, and the seats are rigidly upright.

Summary

Editor:

“”

The Frontier doesn’t measure up against the newer midsize truck competition. It gets down to the price. And since the four-cylinder doesn’t measure up to the V6, that too becomes all about the price. Crunch the numbers when you compare.

Model Lineup

“”

There are five trim levels: S, SV, SL, Desert Runner and PRO-4X. Those five models can extend into no less than 28 iterations, depending on engine, transmission, 2WD or 4WD, cabin style and bed length. (Prices are MSRP and do not include destination charge.)

Frontier S King Cab ($18,390) is basic, with roll-up windows and manual mirrors, although air conditioning, cruise control and Bluetooth are standard. Frontier S Crew Cab ($23,900) replaces the standard 2.5-liter four cylinder with the 4.0-liter V6.

Frontier SV ($22,860) and SV V6 ($24,620) add remote entry and alloy wheels, and offers options like heated seats.

Frontier SL Crew Cab ($32,510) includes the V6 and adds more options like a moonroof and Rockford Fosgate audio system.

The Frontier Desert Runner ($26,630) is rear-wheel drive only, with a rugged suspension and styling. The Pro-4X ($32,340) is four-wheel drive, and has more options.

Options include a rearview camera, spray-in bedliner and cargo tie-down system.
