About the 2017 Frontier

Bold, tough and adventurous, the Nissan Frontier embodies all of the qualities you are looking for in a mid-size pickup truck and more. For years, the Frontier has been inspiring Valley drivers to work hard and play harder, and this model year continues the truck's legacy. The Frontier adds a new Work Truck package to its long list of features that those seeking a durable work horse will appreciate. To learn more about what the truck has to offer, continue scrolling through our 2017 Nissan Frontier review.

Body Styles and Trims

There are a variety of options available to Frontier shoppers, starting with the body configurations. Choose from a crew cab with a 5-foot bed, a crew cab with a 6.1-foot bed or an extended cab (King Cab) with a 6.1-foot bed. Both styles are available in an assortment of trims--S, SV, Desert Runner, PRO-4X and SL (crew cab only).

The base S trim is equipped with modest features, including the new optional Work Truck package, which adds rubber floor mats, a spray-in bed liner, mud flaps and bed rail caps. Starting on the SV level, the Frontier adds even more in the way of comfort, such as upgraded upholstery, keyless entry, a sliding rear window, a USB port, Bluetooth audio and a 5-inch NissanConnect interface. This trim level is available with a highly-rated accessories package that includes amenities like dual-zone automatic climate control, an auto-dimming rearview mirror and heated front seats. 2017 Nissan Frontier reviews also note that this package is good for those with cargo hauling needs, as it also adds a sliding bed extender, cargo tie-downs and a hitch.

Two Engine Options

When you shop for a 2017 Nissan Frontier in the Phoenix area, you have the choice between two engines. The first, a 2.5-liter four-cylinder, makes a solid 152 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque, sending power to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual transmission. A five-speed automatic is also available for those who prefer it. The four-cylinder Frontier can also tow a maximum of 3,500 lbs., making it a great truck for work and weekend travel (V6 models rated at 6,500 lbs.)

For even more rugged power, elect for the 4.0-liter V6 that generates 261 horsepower and 281 pound-feet. V6 models can be had with six-speed manual or five-speed automatic gearboxes, as well as either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive. There's also a PRO-4X model, which is specifically designed with trail-ready features like a locking rear differential, tuned shocks and off-road tires for serious weekend warriors.

Standard Safety

The 2017 Nissan Frontier in Peoria is outfitted with a slew of safety features, from antilock brakes and stability and traction control to active head restraints and Nissan's Advanced Air Bag System. Models with an automatic transmission and four-wheel drive add hill descent control and hill start assist to the list. NissanConnect emergency services, a rearview camera and rear parking sonar are also available on select trims.
