2014 Nissan Frontier Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy
The 2014 Nissan Frontier scores fairly respectably in EPA gas mileage ratings, for a pickup truck, thanks to its relatively compact size and four- and six-cylinder engine options.

The 2WD four-cylinder Frontier rates as high as 19 mpg city and 23 mpg highway for a combined rating of 21 mpg, when equipped with the five-speed manual transmission. Opting for the five-speed automatic gearbox brings those figures down to 17/23/19 mpg. With the V-6, the 2WD Frontier rates 16/22/19 mpg city/highway/combined with a six-speed manual, or 16/22/18 mpg with the five-speed automatic.

In 4WD form, the 2014 Nissan Frontier  is only available with the V-6 engine. Manual-equipped versions score 16 mpg city, 21 mpg highway, and 18 mpg combined; with the automatic, it rates 15/21/17 mpg.

The Nissan Frontier is about as thirsty as many full-size V-6 trucks, and even the four-cylinder version doesn't save much gas.

Those figures make the Frontier more efficient than the Titan, but then the Titan is one of the thirstiest pickups on the road. Several full-size V-6 models in their base forms do better at the pump, and should merit consideration for the truck buyer that also covers lots of miles each year.
