2018 Nissan Frontier: All you should know


The 2018 Nissan Frontier has four 4×2 trims and four 4×4 trims.

Our Opinion: Let’s fully grasp this straight — the Frontier looks her age. First appearing as the 2005 model, it takes a last major facelift immediately following Obama entered office. Although exterior has aged well, the interior hasn’t — in actual fact, it’s a comparable experience to driving my 2005 Kia Sedona parts chaser. Which would have been perfectly fine this season, even, but because we edge even closer the other decade those old plastic pieces might push people away.

Now, the Frontier is really a classic way of a pickup. There isn’t a trick suspension like you’ll find around the Chevrolet Colorado ZR2 or even the towing capacity on the Toyota Tacoma, but you’ll obtain a ladder frame able to receive some work done. Our tester experienced a factory-sprayed bedliner as well as interesting organization system.

The Utili-track system and strange C-shaped bed divider may not be suitable for somebody that would need to haul sheets of plywood all day, but also for anyone who has to reside in which includes a truck in a very non-working sense, it feels like a fantastic way to sort your stuff. You possibly can throw your gym bag, backpack or travel toolbox while you’re watching bed to become captive during the cage, then leave the residual space inside bed for groceries or whatever non-truck related needs you might have. Otherwise, take it out, flip it back or don't spec it.

On the road, the Frontier bounces around the highway happily unladen. It feels almost old-sedan-esque the way it approaches bumps and holes in Detroit surface streets along with the greater Michigan highways. It doesn't crash or bang over imperfections like a few of the full-sizers do. The brakes brought me to the stop quickly, nonetheless the nose dipped considerably — so maybe don’t put anything too fragile inside the bed should you have to produce a critical stop.

Off the road, the VQ40DE 4.0-liter V6 pulls the18 wheeler away without straining. Favorite VQ’s days are numbered in the states, this can be a highlight with the truck. Nissan advertises it making 261 hp at 5,600 rpm and 281 lb-ft at 4,000. Making peak torque that top from the rev range could make hauling great trailer problems in stop and go traffic, though it's rated for approximately 6,200 pounds. The five-speed auto is fine, if another little dated.

This Frontier’s days are numbered, however, this is a lot from the final Frontier. The next-gen pickup should bring the medial side recent create newer accoutrements to your company's midsize pickup lineup. But that it’ll definitely lose a number of its hard-nosed truck-y nature. Us still prefer that.
