Performance Specifications

2018 Nissan Frontier Performance

The 2018 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab pickup offers two uniquely capable engines in its powertrain lineup starting with a standard 2.5L 4-cylinder engine. This engine, which pairs with a standard 6-speed manual transmission, manufactures 152 horsepower while achieving a respectable EPA-estimated 23 highway MPG.1

For more power, opt for the Frontier’s available 4.0L V6 engine. This engine, which can also be paired with either the standard manual transmission or an availabe automatic transmission with manual shift mode, manufactures an impressive 261 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque.

This available engine can also be upgraded to include a Flexible Fuel Vehicle (FFV) feature. This feature allows you to fuel up your Frontier with standard gasoline, ethanol E85, or a mixture of the two – whatever is most convenient for you.

Impressive Adventur-ability

The 2018 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab pickup isn’t just powerful – it’s also adventure-ready. For starters, the power of the available V6 engine allows the Frontier to tow up to 6,710 pounds of trailer weight when properly equipped.2

The Frontier Crew Cab pickup doesn’t stop there, though. This model can also be fitted out with a 4×4 off-road-ready drivetrain that gives you the capability to tackle all types of road conditions including snow, ice, mud, and even backroad boulders.

Pair this 4×4 drive system with the Selectable Drive Modes feature which allows you to customize your drive to maximize both efficiency and capability. Choose between 4WD High for light off-roading, 4WD Low for heavy off-roading, and 2WD for regular everyday driving.

Comfy & Convenient Interior
