Our Take

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

What Is the 2019 Nissan Frontier?

The 2019 Nissan Frontier is a mid-size pickup truck that seats up to five people. It comes standard with a 152-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine; a 261-hp, 4.0-liter V-6 is available. Both engines can work with a manual or automatic transmission, and rear- and four-wheel-drive versions are offered. Competitors include the Toyota Tacoma, Chevrolet Colorado and Honda Ridgeline. 

What's New on the 2019 Nissan Frontier?

A 7-inch touchscreen multimedia system is now standard.

What Features in the 2019 Nissan Frontier Are Most Important?

The King Cab (extended cab) truck has room for four, but the crew cab can hold up to five people. The King Cab has a 6-foot cargo bed, while the crew cab can have either a 5- or 6-foot bed. Cargo bed options include a spray-on bedliner and a rail system with movable tie-down cleats. Leather-trimmed seats, a power-adjustable driver's seat, heated side mirrors and a moonroof are also optional.

Should I Buy the 2019 Nissan Frontier?

The Frontier proves affordable trucks still exist, but the base version doesn't come with many convenience features: it has manual side mirrors, manual windows and manual locks. While it offers good maneuverability and towing capability with the V-6 engine, the brake pedal feels mushy, and we noticed wind noise at highway speeds.

So far, no complaints.

by RBfish from Palmer Alaska, on July 27, 2019

Bought this truck in Greely, CO and towed a small camper trailer back up to Alaska. The V6 easily handled the tow job. I'm happy with this truck. I expect the 4WD to perform well in our Alaska winters... Read full review

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
