2018 Nissan Frontier review: Our expert's take

What it is: The Nissan Frontier mid-size pickup truck is available with a choice of four-cylinder or V-6 power and rear- or four-wheel drive. It comes as an extended cab (King Cab) truck with rear-hinged rear doors, or as a four-door crew cab. King Cabs have a 6-foot cargo bed and crew cabs are available with a 4.75- or 6-foot bed.

The Frontier seats four or five, depending on cab style. It competes with the Chevrolet Colorado, Honda Ridgeline and Toyota Tacoma.

New standard features include a backup camera, air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth connectivity and a 5-inch stereo display. A new Midnight Edition Package for the SV crew cab includes a gloss-black grille, gloss-black 18-inch alloy wheels and step rails, body-colored bumpers, black door handles and side-mirror covers, and black badges.

Great small truck

This a small size truck with a lot of power for towing my boat. I was surprised how much power the V-6 actually has. I would have given 5 stars for comfort but my wife complains that the seats are too firm.


Great ride for off road , towing jet ski and boat

This truck (pro4x) has met my expectations as a commuter and towing may toys, boat and jet ski.I wod highly recommend this mid size truck over any other brands.


Nice smaller truck

Needed a truck to pull a small boat. The frontier is a little plain inside and out, but rides nice and has plenty of power. Fits easily in the garage, even with 4 doors. Needed 4 doors so we could take people out with us fishing.
