2019 Nissan Frontier review: Our expert's take

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.

5.0

Basic dependable truck.

I owned GMC pickups for 30 years, until they became too expensive. I purchase 2019 Frontier and I am completely satisfied. Dependable, and a great basic truck. Good gas mileage and inexpensive to maintain.

2019 Nissan Frontier SV 4x4

I have owned a few Chevys, Fords, and unfortunately a few Dodge Dakotas and one Ram 1500. My 2019 Nissan Frontier SV 4x4 out performs all of them and is less expensive than all. I will never buy another union made piece of junk ever again.

5.0

Frontier V6 4.0 were the best engines built!

I own a 2019 Nissan Frontier SV V6 4X4 with 50K miles, best truck I ever owned. I curretly also own a 2010 Nissan Pathfinder with 278k miles and runs as good as the day it came out of the showroom. these V6 4.0 were the best motors Nissan built with no flaws. The new Nissan engines can't come close to the 4.0 V6.
