Available in King Cab and Crew Cab configurations, with two- or four-wheel drive and either a standard or long bed, the midsize pickup from Nissan soldiers on with a base 152-horsepower four-cylinder engine. You can replace it with a 261-horsepower V6 that allows a maximum towing capacity of 6710 pounds (3044 kg). Want a bit more style? Consider the Midnight Edition featuring black trim and alloy wheels. Of course, the PRO-4X remains the off-road specialist in the Frontier lineup.
