While equipment in the Nissan Frontier hasn't changed notably, its trim levels have been renamed. The base four-cylinder Frontier S models remain very basic and go without air conditioning, power windows, and even a tilt steering wheel. SV models get more popular equipment, like larger 16-inch alloy wheels, chromed bumpers, a sliding rear window, tilt steering, cruise control, air conditioning, keyless entry, tilt steering, and power windows and locks. Top SL models, only offered in the Crew Cab body style, get a roof rack, step rails, fog lamps, tie-down cleats, the Utili-Track system, plus heated leather seats and Bluetooth hands-free, in additioni to a Rockford Fosgate eight-speaker audio system.
The 2011 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X remains the way to go for those who plan to need serious off-road capability; it somes with upgraded Bilstein off-road shocks plus skid plates, plus huge BFGoodrich trail tires.
Options on the Frontier include a limited-slip differential, leather seats, a high-powered Rockford Fosgate audio system, and a choice of either XM or Sirius Satellite Radio.
There's no nav system on offer, but with some nifty cargo solutions and specialized models, practicality and comfort are well-represented in the 2011 Nissan Frontier.
