Car and Driver
The 2014 Nissan Frontier hasn't yet been rated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) aside from a three-star rollover rating, but the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) rates the Frontier with top marks of "good" in moderate overlap front, side, and roof-strength tests; the Frontier's head restraints and seats scored "acceptable" in IIHS testing.
Despite the lack of comprehensive official scores for the current model, the Frontier remains our top pick in this category for its strong history and solid list of standard safety equipment.
A backup camera and sonar parking sensors are available as part of the Value Truck Package, and hands-free Bluetooth phone connectivity is now standard on all models, including the base Frontier S.
No official crash-test scores are out for the 2014 Frontier, but it has done well in the past and offers a strong set of standard safety equipment.
