2014 Nissan Frontier review: Our expert's take

Vehicle Overview

Nissan has the longest history in the U.S. among import automakers of selling compact and midsize pickup trucks. Its current small truck, the Frontier, is available with a choice of four-cylinder or V-6 power, and rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are offered. With seating for four or five depending on the cab style, the Frontier competes with the Toyota Tacoma and Honda Ridgeline.
New for 2014
New standard features include Bluetooth cell phone connectivity, manual air conditioning, cruise control, steering wheel audio controls, a front sunglasses holder and an upgraded stereo. The available navigation system now has enhanced voice recognition and device control, and the Frontier can also have the automaker’s NissanConnect Apps smartphone integration for iPhone and Android along with SiriusXM TravelLink and weather information.

5.0

This is our 2nd Frontier, our 4th Nissan.

Perfect for our needs. Practical with some nice bells and whistles. Just what we wanted. We'll use it for family travel and work commute. We'll keep it awhile...and happily.

4.6

Best Work Truck

This is one great vehicle and worth every dollar as a work truck with excellent mileage and reliability. Hardly any high-cost maintenance. Can not beat it for the money.

4.6

3rd Datsun/Nissan

Never a problem and 142,000 miles. Hit a deer in 2015, airbags did not go off. Replaced everything with new parts. (Large deer and I wasn’t hurt.) I don’t like the body style. I think it looks clumsy, but Datsun/Nissans have always been good for me.
