Car and Driver

Like most pickups, the Nissan Frontier carves a few personalities out of its basic frame by bundling together the right features.

Workhorse Frontiers wear an S badge, and not much else: they have no power windows, no air conditioning, no tilt steering. The SV's a rich man's plaything, in contrast, with its 16-inch wheels, cruise control, power features, tilt steering, and keyless entry. The Frontier is positively gilded, with step rails, tie-down cleats in the bed, heated leather seats, Bluetooth, and a Rockford Fosgate audio system with eight speakers. It's only offered in the four-door Crew Cab body style, though.

Thinking of cutting a new logging road in that pristine forest nearby? That may require the Frontier PRO-4X. This version 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, that same high-powered Rockford Fosgate audio system, and satellite radio.  There's no navigation system on the options list, so plan ahead with directions, buy a paper map, or stop and ask directions--you know, how we used to do it.

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.
