4.5 (Excellent)
16 City / 22 Highway

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2015 Nissan Frontier OVERVIEW

Your choices for a midsize pickup truck have been slim lately, but the Nissan Frontier has been up to the job. Small, but capable, with two-or four-wheel drive and four or six cylinders, the Frontier offers a lot for people who would like a truck with most of the flavor and little of the fat.

What's New For 2015

For 2015, the Frontier soldiers on with a few enhancements. There's a standard moonroof for SL LWB models, standard NissanConnect mobile apps suite for SV, Desert Runner and PRO-4X trims, and navigation for the PRO-4X.

Choosing Your Nissan Frontier

The Frontier is offered in two body styles, King Cab and four-door Crew Cab, and in five trim levels: S, SV, PRO-4X, Desert Runner and SL. It's also offered with either a 2.5-liter four-cylinder with 152 horsepower or a 4-liter V6 with 261 horsepower, though the engine availability varies with two or four-wheel drive and with trim level.


The base Frontier has a two-tiered specification. King Cabs are equipped with the 2.5-liter four, a five-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive; Crew Cabs have a 4-liter V6, a six-speed manual transmission and rear-wheel drive or optional four-wheel drive. An automatic transmission is available for both. The $1,200 Preferred Package (optional on King Cab, standard on Crew Cab) adds AM/FM/CD audio system with Bluetooth hands-free, air conditioning, cruise control and front map lights.


SV comes with 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, Bluetooth, cruise control and a 5-inch display radio with satellite radio and NissanConnect mobile apps. Both King Cab and Crew Cab models are available with four-wheel drive, and a V6 King Cab 4x2 is available. The Value Truck Package adds a backup camera, rear parking sensors, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats and a spray-on bedliner with hooks and a sliding bed extender.

Desert Runner

The Desert Runner incorporates a 4x4 look on a 4x2 truck with Bilstien shocks, the V6 and five-speed automatic transmission, as well as 16-inch alloy wheels and satin finishes, fog lights and special cloth upholstery.


The PRO-4X takes the Desert Runner looks and adds four-wheel drive, along with a six-speed manual transmission, locking differentials, skid plates, dual-zone automatic climate control, backup camera and navigation system. An automatic is optional.


SL tries to incorporate the most comfort features. Available only as a Crew Cab in 4x2 or 4x4 format, it comes loaded with a power moonroof, automatic transmission, 18-inch wheels, Rockford Fosgate audio system, spray-on bedliner and step rails.

CarsDirect Tip

You're going to want a V6-equipped model, and it's hard to pass up a 4x4 for their jacked-up suspension and more rugged looks. But a nicely optioned SV might actually make the most financial sense against heavily discounted full-size pickup trucks.
