2016 Nissan Frontier
When you’ve got stuff that needs to get done, Frontier is up to the task but practicality and smart design don’t come at the expense of comfort. The Crew Cab offers spacious seating for five, and the King Cab’s doors open wide, making it easy to get in and out of the cabin.
Rear Door Access
Smart design means rear doors that give your passengers easy access to the cabin. And with no B-pillars, you also get a huge opening for larger-than-life items. 2016 Nissan Frontier truck with rear under seat storage filled with tools
Flip up either or both rear seat cushions for more storage room. The under-seat storage tray is removable for even greater flexibility. [*]
Frontier’s full-length, fully boxed ladder frame is built for rock-solid performance‐on, and off-road. It’s made of impact-resistant materials that are both durable and stylish, like super-high-tensile-strength steel, and chrome on the rear bumper [*] and front grille. Rear privacy glass adds a touch of attitude, while keeping it cool inside, and a tailgate-mounted rear spoiler helps reduce drag. It all amounts to a rugged exterior that’s ready for whatever you dish out.
Available Utili-track® Channel System [*]
Nissan’s first-in-class Utili-track® cargo‐carrying system holds a huge advantage over other trucks—channels on the bed floor, not just in the walls and header. For even more versatility, position the four beefy aluminum-alloy cleats anywhere along the Utili-track® Channel System, strap in your cargo, and put even the most awkward loads on lockdown. [*]
Shine a light on innovation. The cargo bed light helps you keep an eye on the job at hand. And for added security the tailgate features a cleverly placed lock, making it a well-protected piece of ingenuity.
Performance and Towing Capability
Pumping out up to 261 hp and class-leading [*] 281 lb-ft of torque, Frontier’s V6 engine gets the job done. With a towing capacity of up to 6,500-lbs, you can bring along just about anything you need. [*] Whether you choose a Crew Cab Standard Bed, a King Cab® Standard Bed or a Crew Cab Long Bed, there’s plenty of room for cargo. And with an available spray-on protective bed-liner, you won’t need to worry about tossing it in gently. There’s even an available Flexible Fuel Vehicle (FFV) feature that allows you to choose ethanol E85, standard gasoline or any mixture of the two fuels.
Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS)
The Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS) system senses wheelspin, then automatically applies the brakes to the spinning wheel and directs power to the wheels with more traction to help maintain steering control.
When starting on an incline, hill start assist can keep you from rolling backwards. It holds brake pressure for a few seconds, giving you time to switch from the brakes to the accelerator. Conversely, hill descent control can help you drive down a steep grade in 4WD, by maintaining your speed and brake pressure.[*]
NissanConnect? with Navigation + NissanConnect? Apps
NissanConnect? uses hands-free technology, your smartphone, and your Nissan’s display screen to help you stay in touch with the outside world from inside your vehicle. It’s loaded with features and a growing list of apps that let you play your music, keep tabs on your social network, and navigate any city like a local. [*]
Tunes sound better through a Frontier’s available Rockford Fosgate® [*] powered audio system equipped with eight speakers and two subwoofers. A growing selection of music apps, like Pandora® [*] and iHeartRadio for Auto [*], means you’ll never have a shortage of tunes to choose from.
Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS)
Nissan Advanced Air Bag System (AABS) includes dual-stage supplemental front air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant-classification sensor. The inflation rate of these dual-stage air bags adjusts depending on crash severity and seat belt usage. [*]
Built into the front seats, two supplemental air bags offer side-impact protection and move with you as you adjust your seating position. [*]
