Well known as a workhorse, the 2018 Nissan Frontier is staying true to its roots by offering maximum performance for an affordable price.
2018 Nissan Frontier
Why Buy the Nissan Frontier?
The 2018 Nissan Frontier is an affordable compact pickup truck that has stayed true to its reputation as a hard-working truck for hard workers. The Frontier really pulls through when you need it, with recent years' models getting praise left and right for reliability. You can see this quality hinted at in the truck's bulky exterior and spartan interior--the focus is on its capability, not a posh interior or extra features.
Though it's not known for its features, Nissan Frontiers offer buyers the option to trick out their truck with whatever features matter most to them: NissanConnect, a navigation system, moonroof, cruise control, Bluetooth, heated and power-adjustable leather front seats, audio system, and dual-zone automatic climate control. The Frontier may not have the standard tech or features of other pickup trucks, but that gives it its quintessential affordability and attitude. It makes the Frontier a trucker's truck.
Is the Nissan Frontier a Good Truck?
The Frontier doesn't offer much in terms of creature comforts, but it does get the job done and you can find it off-roading with the best of them. You'll feel right at home if you want a no-nonsense truck, part sturdy ox, part nimble bighorn. You'll feel the Frontier's power when you push on the gas in the passing lane. We recommend the V-6 engine for those big jobs and extra power.
The Nissan Frontier performs well in the city, but designers definitely had off-roading in mind when building it. If you want to maximize its off-roading potential, get the Pro-4X trim with high-pressure performance gas shocks, skid plates, and a limited-slip rear differential. You'll feel adventurous and confident as you leave the beaten path.
What is the Nissan Frontier's towing capacity?
The 2018 Nissan Frontier boasts a rugged body-on-frame construction which gives it the ability to tow 6,690 pounds. That won't haul a John Deere tractor, but an RV should give you no trouble. If you need to tow more, the Nissan Titan's towing capacity is around 9,000 pounds.
Is the Nissan Frontier 4WD?
Each of the four models of 2018 Nissan Frontier comes as rear-wheel-drive or four-wheel-drive. The Frontier, true to its name, does off-roading well and comes with the four-wheel-drive necessary for taking the road less traveled by. Again, the Pro-4X trim serves best for this purpose.
