The Nissan Frontier delivers a traditional style that, in some eyes, is reassuring, but otherwise points to a dated design. We like its strong layout marked by a powerful grille and oversized wheel well arches. Much of the rest of the design is what you'd expect with some variations based on trim level.
Crew cab models come with the same 73.3-inch bed found in the King Cab, but you can also order one with a shorter 59.5-inch bed. The bedliner that’s standard with the SV makes a whole lot of sense.
On paper, the Frontier Crew Cab seats five, but it's best for four. Even then, if your rear-seat passengers include a couple of big guys, you might begin your search with the full-size Nissan Titan.
The interior reflects this truck’s older design, with plastics dominating. We find it a mood spoiler and especially a disappointment in models costing $30,000 or more. The front seats offer average comfort, the rear seat even less so. The sight lines are average, but only the SL and PRO-4X models offer a height-adjustable driver’s seat.
