2014 Nissan Frontier Review
The 2014 Nissan Frontier is one of the few compact pickups still on the market. Competitors like the
Canyon, Colorado and Ranger have been discontinued. Thankfully, the
Frontier is still available and better than ever.
Four trim lines are available for the new Frontier: S, SL, SV and
PRO-4X. The S is the entry point and options differ between the SL and
SV trims. The PRO-4X was built with off-road driving in mind.
A slew of 2014 Frontier upgrades include Bluetooth phone and audio on S models, NissanConnect Apps functionality, heated cloth front seats on PRO-4X models, heated front seats (SV VTP package) and navigation improvements including voice recognition and smartphone compatibility.
The Nissan Frontier is perfect for Boston’s wintry conditions. The V-6 powered Frontier offers up to 6,500 pounds of towing capacity. There is superior steering control and excellent suspension to control the vehicle’s body. Rear wheel drive and 4×4 drivelines are available. The heavy duty engine is rip-roaring with 261 horsepower and a 281 lb ft. 4.0 V-6 engine. There’s also a 2.5 liter four cylinder engine available with 152 horsepower. Most critics compare the Frontier’s V-6 engine to smaller V-8s on the market. The four-cylinder engine gives the buyer a choice between a five speed automatic transmission and a five speed manual transmission. V-6 Frontiers come in either five speed automatics or a six speed manual.
The 2014 Frontier comes with two cab options: Crew Cab and King Cab. The
Crew Cab has ample rear seat space, four doors and a manual sliding rear
window (not included on the S models). The King Cab has rear hinged
doors that open behind the front seats to provide extra space. The King
Cab also has two jump seats which are serviceable for kids. The Frontier
sports a bed liner that is sprayed in and a Utili-Track cargo tie-down system. There’s a Value Truck Package that combines several fancy options like dual zone climate control, a bed extender and a trailer hitch.
The V-6 models get 15 mpg in city driving and 21 mpg on the highway with an automatic transmission. This is slightly improved with the four cylinder manual models which reach 19/23 respectively. This fuel economy is comparable to competitor compact trucks.
