Car and Driver

The 2014 Nissan Frontier no longer offers a standard cab, short-bed version, maturing fully into mid-size status with a choice of Crew or King cabs. Crew Cab models get a standard manual sliding rear window (except for base S models), and a range of interior technology and equipment upgrades improve the cabin experience for 2014.

Five trim grades are available, including Frontier S and SV (both available with either the four-cylinder or V-6 engine), the PRO-4X, the Desert Runner, and the SL (available in Crew Cab only).

While the Frontier is mid-sized, it's certainly large enough for most folks. It's easy to enter and exit thanks to its slightly lower-than-full-size height, and the front seats are supportive and comfortable upright. Visibility is good throughout the Frontier range.

King Cab Frontiers get a pair of rear-hinged doors that open up the area behind the front seats for more cargo and a pair of jump seats--but the jump seats are best reserved for kids, and small ones at that. The Crew Cab models get four full-size doors that accommodate smaller adults, with a three-across second-row bench that's only tight on elbow and shoulder room when fully loaded.

Hauling things is a truck's job (at least in part) and the Frontier delivers with the cargo-related features. A stout frame, beds up to six feet in length, and a factory spray-in bedliner make for a rugged, if residential-sized, work space. An available Utili-Track cargo tie-down system is very handy for those regularly hauling weekend projects or outdoor gear.


Rugged rather than refined, the 2014 Nissan Frontier's cabin is nonetheless comfortable and even offers fair rear-seat space in Crew Cab models.

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.
