2016 Nissan Frontier Review

You’ve got a tough to-do list and finding the right truck to keep up is no small task. The 2016 Nissan Frontier is your perfect partner. It’s a mid-size truck with plenty of muscle and towing power to tackle the biggest challenges. Its rugged frame comes standard so you can do what you need to where you need to. Choose your Frontier in 4 by 4 or 4 by 2 with either a King Cab or Crew Cab starting at $18 290 for the S King Cab; the top-of-the-line PRO-4X Crew Cab starts at $31 840. Not all cargo is created equal that’s why Frontier offers Nissan’s utili-track system6 to keep it all under control. Inside it’s like your man cave on wheels. Comfort entertainment and cup holders – it’s got it all. Available Nissan Connect brings your apps calls music and more together on one screen. The available rearview monitor makes hitching up easy and the available rear sonar system beeps when objects are closing in. Frontier comes in a variety of colors and interiors sure to stand out in a crowd. The 2016 Nissan Frontier… Tough is always on call.
Pick the cab that works for you. The king cab is more compact but still seats . The rear door opens wide for easy-access. Hauling along a bigger crew? Go for the crew cab – it seats 5 and has 60/40 folding rear seats for even more cargo space. A truck doesn’t have to be a mindless workhorse. Add some brains to that brawn. Available NissanConnect color touchscreen Bluetooth and more bring all the comforts of the man cave along for the ride.
You know safety is first and foremost. That’s why Frontier offers innovation that looks out for you. Available rearview camera and sonar makes backing up and hitching up a breeze. And the available automatic headlights maximize your visibility. Never fear the unexpected. Frontier comes with a host of safety features to help respond like vehicle dynamic control and multiple braking aides. If a collision does happen zone body construction helps absorb the impact. 6 standard airbags and the LATCH system helps keep everyone safe.
Stronger is always better. That’s why Frontier features a full-length fully boxed ladder frame. The rigid construction improves performance on- and off-road. The standard 4-cylinder feels like a 6 pumping out 152 horsepower. The available 4-liter V6 utilizes advanced technology to deliver exceptional performance and power. Go where you want to go and tow what you want to tow. The Frontier has an available 6 500 pounds of towing capacity so you can bring along the right tool – or toy – for the job.
