The 2018 Nissan Frontier is a mid-size pickup that fits like a pair of our favorite jeans in the back of our closet—and the Frontier is just as old. All 2018 Nissan Frontiers run on regular gasoline. Some unique equipment is making this version more capable for the off-road drive. Crew cabs pick between the long bed or a shorter 59. We work with our Nissan supply dealers throughout the nation and have the ability to acquire any vehicle from any dealer inventory by leveraging our buying power.

We deliver local vehicles within 72 hours to your home or office, Any Nissan vehicles originating from outside of your immediate region may require documentation to be sent overnight for original signatures along with available vehicle transport of your new Nissan lease to your front door. Despite being on the road for more nearly four presidential terms, the 2019 Nissan Frontier still lacks a complete set of crash ratings. Extended cabs all have a 73. An extended cab with a 6-foot bed is standard, but a four-door crew cab with a shorter bed is more common. Also new is the Midnight Edition package, which includes a gloss-black grille, 18-inch gloss-black aluminum wheels and other blacked-out trim. A V6 drops the gas mileage to 19 mpg combined.
The inline-4 is loud and is tasked with hauling around upward of 4,000 pounds of pickup. This year every 2018 Nissan Frontier gets a standard rearview camera. The bulk of all 2018 Frontiers come with a 4. Under the hood is a base, forgettable inline-4 that makes 152 horsepower and struggles with anything more than rear-wheel drive and a light lunch. As a result, the 2018 Frontier rates just 3 out of 10 on our scale.
Two-wheel drive is standard and all-wheel drive optional. It adds power windows, locks, and mirrors, tinted windows, and alloy wheels to the mix. Tough tie-downs are available to make the bed more versatile. As a result, we skip rating it here. It gets a 4 for style. First of all, it is not using the base inline-four drivetrain.
The base S model now includes standard air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth and a 5. As for the heart pacemaker Frontier, uses a turbocharged 2. This is among the best records in the segment. A 6-inch touchscreen navigation is also part of Premium package coming with a Pro-4X version of the truck. The Pro-4X adds in a few creature comforts plus the safety net cast by a locking rear differential. Additionally, we can get up to 280 lb-ft of torque out of this mill. Its front seats are just average, the second row is quite unpleasant, and a plethora of cheap materials spoil the mood inside.
In addition to the high-tech safety systems, design digital speedometer Nissan Frontier, giving more comfort for the driver. No rear defrost when majority of states are cold weather. Two body styles, two bed lengths, two wheelbases, two transmissions and two engines are available including a beefy 4. Must be why the truck has heated seats which will not defrost windows. A small package adds a lot of value, including a spray-in bedliner, upgraded audio, tailgate extender, and more.
As the years go by, we expect the Frontier to hold its value well, but still not top that of the Tacoma. All Frontiers have a part-time four-wheel-drive system not meant for dry pavement use, but the Pro-4X adds a convenient locking rear differential activated at the tap of a button. The 6-speed manual is the best option for the busy inline-4, but a 5-speed automatic is available. The Frontier earns a 4 for comfort. The Frontier is a rare breed among it's counterparts, it's still a truck.
A few items, such as a 7. Guess how well an inexpensive, base pickup will do? Its upper trims are ready to compete with any other small truck. Interior The Premium package is available in 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X interior. Campers should check out the bed tent available from Nissan dealers. Any transport shipping costs are quoted separate from your Nissan lease, however can be added to your transaction. The optional Value Truck package—adds reverse sensing, dual-zone automatic climate control, more speakers, auto-dimming interior mirror, heated front seats, fog lights, a security system, a bed extender, a trailer hitch, leather for the steering wheel and shift knob, a spray-in bedliner, and a cargo management system for the bed.
Four-cylinder variants are best left to utility trailers and the like given their modest power, although Nissan says they can lug upward of 3,500 pounds. The Frontier is equipped with required safety features such as airbags, traction control, stability control, and a rearview camera. The front seat is fine, but the rear seats are upright and stiff. The rear seats on all Frontier models flip up for more space, and the front-passenger seat can fold flat, creating an impromptu workstation. No frippery and very little glitter.
Our 5 out of 10 rating is based on the V-6 with four-wheel drive and the 5-speed automatic, but it could really apply to any 2018 Frontier. Because the truck is still a truck and not some fluff-luxo-wanna-be truck, it's actually pretty reliable like the Tacoma, for thousands less. Starting from a base score, the Frontier earns points for its good overall value and base infotainment system. A Value Truck package goes further: dual-zone climate control, better audio, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, spray-in bedliner, parking sensors, and heated seats. The Pro-4X features a locking rear differential for extreme cases. Most Frontiers will be equipped with a 4. Well, this one is the most expensive solution.
