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.

2019 Nissan Frontier Highly Recommended !!

My 2019 Frontier runs and drives like a top. The power of the 4.0 is great. The truck picks up and goes, not sluggish like others I driven. If your looking for dependability, I recommend a Frontier.

Good solid truck for the money.

Solid truck for the money, have had two Tacoma's and this is my 2nd Frontier. my 2019 Frontier has much more comfortable seats than either my 2015 or 2017 Tacoma. The 4.0 V6 is a strong engine and with sensible driving get 19.5 mpg in town average.

Great truck!!!

This truck has great hauling power for what I need, as well as plenty of passenger space when there’s more than just my wife and I going somewhere. It is the perfect mix of truck and car, and can get through just about anything. Angle of approach is excellent, and this comes from someone who was. a diehard jeep fan for a long time. Power is solid, with a 4 L V6. Handling, it handles like it’s on rails. Can move through corners at speed with no issue due to a properly placed center of gravity. Overall, it’s a great truck, I wish I had gotten one sooner.
