The Nissan Frontier is a mid-size pickup truck with seating for 4 to 5 people in extended King Cab and Crew Cab bodystyles. The latter comes with a choice of short and long boxed and is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 mated to either a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic. Thanks to its 261 hp, the V6 can tow up to 6500 lbs. on the King Cab, where it is joined by a 152 hp 4-cylinder engine with 5-speed manual or automatic transmissions. In line with its rugged exterior, the Frontier is sturdy inside and out, but also relatively agile and - depending on trim - capable off-road, especially with the optional all-wheel-drive.

The Nissan Frontier receives only minor enhancements for 2012. 4-cylinder models now come with 2-Wheel Brake Limited Slip (ABLS) and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC). In addition, a Sport Appearance Package featuring 18-in. alloy wheels, body-color front and rear bumpers, sport cloth seat trim with embroidered Frontier logo, fog lights and Bluetooth Hands Free Phone System is available on SV models.
