A new crew cab/long bed model is available for '07. It provides an extra 13 inches of bed length, while its optional 4.0-liter V-6 gets an uptick in rated output to 261 horsepower vs. 250 previously. The standard engine in the Frontier is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder developing 152 horsepower, an increase of 9 horsepower compared with the '06 model. The Frontier shares platforms with the Xterra and Pathfinder sport-utility vehicles, which essentially ride on a modified version of the fully boxed, ladder frame used on the full-size Armada SUV and Titan pickup. The truck comes in either rear- or four-wheel drive and in four-door King Cab and Crew Cab versions. The former configuration includes front-hinged rear access doors and flip-up back seats, while the latter comes with conventional rear-hinged doors and a full-sized bench seat. Five or six-speed manual transmissions are available, as is a five-speed automatic transmission. A "high-utility" pickup bed includes both a factory-applied spray-in bedliner and a "Utili-track" cargo tie-down system. Hill Start Assist and Hill Descent Control testify to the Frontier's off-roading credentials and serious enthusiasts will want to check out the NISMO off-road package, which adds skid plates, an upgraded suspension with Bilstein shocks, electronic locking rear differential and knobby-style tires. Standard Frontier features include four-wheel disc anti-lock brakes and a tire pressure monitor. A limited-slip differential, leather seats, a high-powered Rockford Fosgate audio system and a choice of either XM or Sirius satellite radio can be ordered optionally.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
