Solid to the Core

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.

Put your cargo on lockdown

Available Utili-track® Channel System [*]

Nissan's first-in-class Utili-track® cargo-carrying system holds a huge advantage over other trucks—channels on the bed floor, not just in the walls and header. For even more versatility, position the four beefy aluminum-alloy cleats anywhere along the Utili-track® Channel System, strap in your cargo, and put even the most awkward loads on lockdown. [*]

Locking Tailgate and Cargo Bed Light

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.

Working Class Class

When you’ve got stuff that needs to get done, Frontier is up to the task but practicality and smart design don't come at the expense of comfort. The Crew Cab offers spacious seating for five, and the King Cab’s doors open wide, making it easy to get in and out of the cabin.

Rear Door Access

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.

Leave 'em in the dust

The Desert Runner® sizzles under any sun—or cloud for that matter. It’s equipped with a slick satin chrome grille, functional fog lights, and cool Desert Runner® graphics. Inside, it’s got embroidered sport cloth front seats, and racing-inspired, white-faced gauges. It has a Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System [*] that you can activate through steering wheel-mounted controls, and a USB port for your iPod® that lets you listen to what you want when you want. [*]

Frontier gets it done...

Performance and Towing Capability

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.

Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS)

The Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS) system senses wheelspin, then automatically applies the brakes to the spinning wheel and directs power to the wheels with more traction to help maintain steering control.

Hill Start Assist & Hill Descent Control

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.[*]

Electronic Locking Rear Differential

When 4x4 mode isn't enough, the PRO-4X®—Frontier's ultimate off-roader—delivers. Just flip the switch to activate the electronic locking rear differential. This feature delivers equal power to both rear wheels to boost traction and help keep your truck moving forward.

Bilstein® Off-road Performance Shocks

Bilstein® shocks were built to meet the demands of all your urban and off-road adventures. Their reputation for quality design means you’ll experience responsive handling and incredible comfort wherever Frontier takes you.[*]


Safety, first and foremost

Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS)

Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. The inflation rate of these dual-stage air bags adjusts depending on crash severity and seat belt usage. [*]

Driver and Front Passenger Seat-mounted Side-impact Air Bags

Built into the front seats, two supplemental air bags offer side-impact protection and move with you as you adjust your seating position. [*]

Roof-mounted Curtain Side-impact Supplemental Air Bags

Roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags help provide head protection for both rows of outboard occupants. [*]

More than an ounce of prevention

Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)

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. [*]

Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) with
Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD)

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.
