Pumping out up to 261 hp and class-leading 281 lb-ft of torque, Frontier’s V6 engine gets the job done. With a towing capacity of up to 6,500-lbs, you can bring along just about anything you need. Whether you choose a Crew Cab Standard Bed, a King Cab® Standard Bed or a Crew Cab Long Bed, there’s plenty of room for cargo. And with an available spray-on protective bed-liner, you won’t need to worry about tossing it in gently. There’s even an available Flexible Fuel Vehicle (FFV) feature that allows you to choose ethanol E85, standard gasoline or any mixture of the two fuels.
When starting on an incline, hill start assist can keep you from rolling backwards. It holds brake pressure for a few seconds, giving you time to switch from the brakes to the accelerator. Conversely, hill descent control can help you drive down a steep grade in 4WD, by maintaining your speed and brake pressure.
Shine a light on innovation. The cargo bed light helps you keep an eye on the job at hand. And for added security the tailgate features a cleverly placed lock, making it a well-protected piece of ingenuity.
Frontier’s full-length, fully boxed ladder frame is built for rock-solid performance—on, and off-road. It’s made of impact-resistant materials that are both durable and stylish, like super-high-tensile-strength steel, and chrome on the rear bumper and front grille. Rear privacy glass adds a touch of attitude, while keeping it cool inside, and a tailgate-mounted rear spoiler helps reduce drag. It all amounts to a rugged exterior that’s ready for whatever you dish out.
Smart design means rear doors that give your passengers easy access to the cabin. And with no B-pillars, you also get a huge opening for larger-than-life items.
Flip up either or both rear seat cushions for more storage room. The under-seat storage tray is removable for even greater flexibility.
NissanConnectSM uses hands-free technology, your smartphone, and your Nissan’s display screen to help you stay in touch with the outside world from inside your vehicle. It’s loaded with features and a growing list of apps that let you play your music, keep tabs on your social network, and navigate any city like a local.
With a Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, and a Hands-free Text Messaging Assistant, keeping up with your connections is easy. You can make and receive calls through the stereo speaker system, or just talk to send a text. No headset, no reaching—just a nice firm grip on the steering wheel.
Frontier’s available RearView Monitor helps you see what’s directly behind you on the color display—helping to make parking easier.
Built into the front seats, two supplemental air bags offer side-impact protection and move with you as you adjust your seating position.
This feature—sometimes called stability control—continuously monitors your steering and braking actions, senses any oversteer or understeer, and helps compensate by reducing engine speed and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels.
Standard on all models is a 4-wheel Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) plus Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) that senses additional weight, whether it's a full cargo bed or a full tank of gas, and sends extra force to the rear brakes.
