Automotive Editor - May 27, 2014

The Frontier is Nissan’s entry in the midsize pickup truck category. Two cabs are offered—king cab and crew cab—and there are also two engines to choose from: a 152-horsepower 2.5-liter four-cylinder and a 261-horsepower 4-liter V6.

What's New for 2014

A new audio system, navigation and wheel options are available on the crew cab models. The S gains standard features including Bluetooth, cruise control and air conditioning. The PRO 4 now features standard heated cloth seats.

Choosing Your Nissan Frontier

The Frontier is available in five trims — Frontier S, Frontier SV, the PRO-4X, the Desert Runner and the SL. King cabs come with four- or six-cylinder engines, while all crew cabs make exclusive use of the V6.


The just-the-basics S includes cruise control, a manual transmission, Bluetooth, a hitch ball mount, a trailer tow harness, step rails, fog lights, a tool box and side window deflectors.


The step up to the SV adds power mirrors, power windows, a USB-linked audio system, and a color display.

Desert Runner

The Desert Runner includes Bilstein shocks, a five-speed automatic transmission, a chrome grille, cloth seat trim, carpeted floor mats and a seat belt extender.


The PRO-4X builds on SV features with skid plates, a locking rear differential and Bilstein shocks.


The most luxurious of the Frontiers adds 18-inch aluminum wheels, leather seats, the utili-track channel system and the NissanConnect system.

Buyers can augment austere standard features with packages like:

  • Preferred: Bluetooth, front map lights, air conditioning, cruise control, sunglass storage console and an AM/FM/CD audio system.
