“If it ain’t broken, don’t fix it”

This seems to be the sentiment kept by the Nissan Frontier, as even with more than a decade of production, not much has changed with it. Even with that said, this mid-size pickup seems to kill it in the automobile marketplace. Whether it’s the old-school cabin or the practical, durable exterior design, we’re not totally sure. Regardless, it is a competent truck with the ability to tow. 

Going Off-Grid –  A History of the Nissan Frontier

The Nissan Frontier, otherwise known as the Nissan Navara in Asia and Europe, came about in 1997 to replace the model D21 pickup truck. The reason for manufacturing this particular truck was to fill a gap in their lineup that left out compact pickup trucks. 

Specs and Features of the Nissan Frontier

The 2019 Nissan Frontier sports a V-6 engine and five-speed transmission. It has comparable towing capacities when put side by side with its competitors. It has soft suspension that works really well on trails, though might feel a bit loose on the roads.

The interior is pretty straightforward with a large passenger area, a bare-bones infotainment system with NissanConnect, and a standard backup camera. 

A Timeline of the Nissan Frontier (1997-Present)

Though the pickup has been around for over two decades, it is surprisingly still in its first generation. The major change took place in 2006 when the Frontier got a few more trim levels. By 2007, Nissan added a Long Bed trim for the Crew Cab that was six feet in length. 2007 was also the year that the V-6 got reduced emissions thanks to new standards. 

By 2009, the front fascia was updated, and a new gauge cluster was included. In 2010, standard safety features included front side impact airbags, side curtain airbags, and a stability control system. By 2019, the infotainment system was updated with newer applications, and other features like a backup camera and optional climate control came into play. 

The Nissan Frontier In the News

In unfortunate Nissan news, a driver of a Nissan Frontier was killed when he ran into a flatbed that was parked off of the shoulder of Highway 160 in Sacramento. 

Celebrity Endorsements of the Nissan Frontier

Club Frontier is a premier forum-style group for Frontier owners and enthusiasts to chat and share insights about their favorite trucks. 

The Nissan Frontier – A Pickup That Plays Hard

So while the Nissan Frontier may not be as up-to-date as other pickups that are in its class, it is a practical driving machine that allows adventurers to go off-road, tow large objects, or travel just about anywhere they can think of. We can’t say that it is an iconic pickup truck, nor can we say that it will go down in history as one of the great pickups. 

What we can say is that it’s obvious that this twenty-something pickup has a loyal fanbase who continues to drive it. If that’s not enough to give it some credit, then we don’t know what is.
