The Nissan Frontier, a no-compromise pickup forged with premium hardware, extraordinary power and off-road athleticism, continues to be a leader in the mid-size truck segment. Rated the “Highest Ranked Midsize Pickup in Initial Quality” in J.D. Power and Associates’ 2010 Initial Quality Study, Frontier was updated in 2009 with a new front fascia, grille and headlight design and available wheel designs. The changes for 2011 focus on revised model and option availability. The previous Frontier XE model is now the Frontier S, the previous SE is now designated Frontier SV, and the previous Frontier LE model is the Frontier SL. The 2011 Frontier model lineup now consists of Frontier S, Frontier SV, Frontier PRO-4X and Frontier SL (Crew Cab only). It is offered in both King Cab and Crew Cab body styles, in 4×2 and 4×4 driveline configurations.

Frontier continues to offer an exceptional level of on- and off-road performance with the use of a 4.0-liter DOHC V6 engine with ample horsepower, torque, towing and payload capacity. At 261 horsepower, the 4.0-liter V6 is the most powerful in class. A 152-horsepower 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder engine is also available (King Cab only). With its strong performance, combined with good fuel mileage (19 city, 23 highway, King Cab S I4 2WD manual transmission), the Frontier is a fitting truck for work or play.

Other revisions for 2011 include the addition of Frontier S Crew Cab SWB and PRO-4X Crew Cab SWB 6MT models, the addition of new SV Premium Utility and PRO-4X Luxury Packages, Vehicle Immobilizer and bed rail caps standard are now on Frontier SV, PRO-4X and SL models, and the Navy Blue exterior color is now available on Frontier SV models.
