Narrow year range (drag arrows to filter):
The NissanConnect navigation and information system is now available on Crew Cab versions of the Frontier. Top-line Crew Cab models receive a backup camera, rear parking sensors and dual-zone climate control. Desert Runner off-road editions are available, and fuel economy has increased for most models.
All 2010 Nissan Frontier models now feature front side-impact and full-length side-curtain airbags, while V6 models pick up VDC (Vehicle Dynamic Control) stability control as part of their standard equipment roster. In addition, SE and LE 4WD models are outfitted with standard Hill Decent Control and Hill Start Assist.
The 2009 Nissan Frontier receives a revised front end and new grille, as well as new 16- and 18-inch wheels. Also new for 2009 is a PRO-4X model on both the King and LE Crew Cab models. The PRO-4X package adds a long list of goodies including Bilstein shocks, additional skid plates, electronic rear differential locker and off-road tires.
A power driver's seat is added to LE trims, while a host of upgraded packages debut across the line. A Technology Package adds upgraded audio with an auxiliary audio input jack, Bluetooth hands-free phone connectivity, steering wheel audio controls, XM Satellite Radio and a security and alarm system.
The days of the compact pickup are fast closing. Witness the Nissan Frontier, a once-compact contender that has grown in size, power and weight. Of course, it has also grown in capability and passenger comfort, placing it in the same general category as the midsize Dodge Dakota and Toyota Tacoma. The Frontier has much in common with its larger sibling, the Titan, offering a fully-boxed frame, Nissan's adjustable Utili-track Bed Channel System and a spray-in bed liner. With one of the most powerful V6 engines in its class, the Frontier offers superior towing with almost sports car-like acceleration. Although bargain shoppers may lament the absence of a standard-cab model, the four-cylinder King Cab is still an affordable truck, priced well below $18,000.

"This solid truck rocks. The mistake I made was buying a stripped down SE rather than a leather LE. I miss not having heated leather seats, a sunroof, and a roof rack. However in September there was only one LE left in the state CO and it was white. I just gave up a white vehicle and opted for the storm gray SE. I love the storm gray color. I like the short bed crew cab with a bed extender and bed divider. I love the utilitrack tie down bed liner system. I love the power of the 4 L 261 Hp engine. This truck leaps off the line. However, the 16/20 mpg rating is tough on the checkbook. I was use to 33 mpg from my previous 1984 Nissan pickup truck, which is still running fine. Nissan does a wonderful job building good reliable trucks. This truck has much more room than the old style. It has a durable hard plastic feel to the interior which is anothr reason to get leather if you can. I hope Nissan manufactures more LE Frontier pickups. The vehicle handles okay for a truck. It is larger than I would like and is tough to park around town. Again I am use to my 1984 standard bed Nissan pickup. I wish Nissan would make a smaller pickup with better gas mileage. A TDI would be nice. Great truck for the money. I also considered buying a Toyota Tacoma which was longer and more expensive. I am glad I went with the Frontier since it is made in American at Smyrna Tennesse with many North American made parts. At least some of my dollars are helping out the US economy. I would buy another Nissan Frontier, however, my dealership gave me a lifetime powertrain warranty with the truck (much like an insurance policy) so I believe I will be driving this truck until I am about 70 years old. Overall, I am a happy owner of a Frontier and I feel I got a good deal for the money I spent on a 2007 model. And that is coming from a ND farm boy turned engineer/landlord/snowboarder. I use my trucks hard and the Frontier is a work truck. Nuf said. My rating is about a 4.8 out of 5.0. Hope you enjoyed this review."

"I had a 2005 frontier and loved it. A drunk driver rear ended my truck going over 80mph. I was towing a trailer at the time. My truck jack-knifed and flipped over some trees, landed on the roof and skidded across 3 lanes, hit the sidewalk on the opposite side of the road and flipped back over onto its wheels, slamming into a wall and some trees. 2 of the windows fell out, the back bumper was ripped off, and both mirrors were gone. And somehow everyone in the truck escaped without injury! I immediately went out and got an 2006 Frontier. and I still have it. It feels good to know that my truck is safe, especially with my family in the car. Everything else about the truck is great also. Ill admit the seats are a little scratchy and I was bummed it didnt have a MP3 jack. But overall great trucks."

"I looked long and hard for a decent used mid-sized pick-up,and I have to admit that the initial search was focused on the Toyota Tacoma,based on referrals and reviews. After several weeks of intense internet and classified searches,my attention shifted to the Frontier. As soon as I got "up close" to one and compared features my mind was made up. I ended up purchasing an "06 Frontier SE 4x4 Crew Cab" and WOW! What a truck! Not only roomier than the Tacoma,but much more reasonably priced! The build quality,comfort,and ride was far superior than I had hoped for,and it has the Nissan reputation for reliability behind it. Way more power with the V6 than I'll probably need,and the fuel milage reflects it if you aren't careful! One "Tie-Breaker" came for me when I called a friend who works as a service technician at a local Dealership that sells and services both the Tacoma and the Frontier. He told me "We sell them both all the time,and rarely see them again unless it's routine maintenence. I HAVE noticed that for whatever reason,the Toyotas seem to develop rust problems earlier." He was right! Look around at the ones on the road. I'm REALLY happy with my choice,and so far,NO REGRETS!"
