When it comes to performance, the 2018 Nissan Frontier stands out through the excellent selection of options. Drivers looking for something simple and straightforward can choose the smaller 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. At 152 horsepower, it is easily sufficient to move the truck around while loaded up and give you a spirited drive when empty. If you are looking to fill up the bed or maximize your towing power, you also have the option of the potent 4.0-liter V-6. This gives you 261 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque to play with, and allows the truck to reach its peak payload of 1,480 pounds and tow up to 6,710 pounds. In a nice nod to enthusiasts, both engines are available with a manual transmission as well as a responsive automatic. Off-roading fans will also enjoy the Frontier Pro-4X trim that is specifically designed for off-road adventures. It exhibits key features like skid plates, premium shocks, a two-speed transfer case and hill descent control.
