Car video reviews:

Body style: Truck
Segment: Large SUV

The rugged Nissan Frontier King Cab was a half-ton pickup truck that could be offered either with 2 or 4WD.

Its long bed and spacious cabin were some of its strong points on the market.

The Nissan Frontier was based on a shortened version of the Nissan Titan chassis. Due to this, it was able to handle high payloads. Its maneuverability was very good due to its tight turning circle. The front-wheel independent suspension was praised for the comfort it offered.

The Frontier was offered with a 4-door Crew Cab or a 2-door King Cab version. Unlike its 4-door version, the King Cab offers some limited rear seats, mainly for kids or to hod the fishing rods inside. The King Cab offered an infotainment unit without a sat-nav. The rear window, facing the bed, had a center side that could slide-open.

Underneath the car was the same ladder-chassis from its bigger brother, the Titan. Having a closed-box cross-section, it meant that it was a very rugged chassis that could handle high-payloads and big engines. But the Frontier had only gasoline engines for the North-American markets. The European version, named Navara, had a 2.5-liter turbodiesel under the hood.

For the 2009 model update, the Nissan offered the Frontier with a special off-road package named 4X that featured underneath skid-plates, off-road tires, off-road shocks, and lockable rear differential.
