The 2017 Nissan Frontier: Performance Specs

The 2017 Nissan Frontier may be a light-duty pickup truck, but its specs and capacities have earned it a top spot on many drivers’ shortlists. Offering an array of configurations and powertrains, the Nissan Frontier delivers a sensible towing and hauling solution for Bremerton families and businesses alike. Whether you need a fuel-efficient pickup with a punch of power, or a brawny work truck, the Nissan Frontier’s performance seamlessly adapts to your needs.

Powertrains and Capacities

Engine Options

The new Nissan Frontier is available with one of two engines: a 152-hp 2.5L 4-cylinder or a 261-hp 4.0L 6-cylinder.

Transmission Options

Regardless of your engine choice, you’ll have access to a 6-speed manual or 5-speed automatic transmission for handling and fuel-efficiency to suit your preferences.

Towing Capacity

Equipped with the available V6 engine, two-wheel drive, and the automatic transmission, the Nissan Frontier tows up to 6,710 pounds.

Payload Capacity

The mid-level Frontier SV V6 Crew Cab with two-wheel drive and the automatic transmission earns the highest payload capacity of the bunch: 1,500 pounds.

Capable and Confident on Any Road

The 2017 Nissan Frontier is offered in King Cab and Crew Cab. The King Cab can be had with the 4-cylinder engine or the V6 engine, while the Crew Cab is compatible with the V6 engine only. Despite its strength, the Frontier never forgoes fuel-efficiency, even with the powerful V6 at the helm. Furnished with the 4-cylinder, two-wheel drive, and automatic transmission, the 2017 Nissan Frontier earns an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city/23 mpg highway. Models with the V6 and two-wheel drive earn just one mile per gallon less in the city.With so many performance features at play, the 2017 Nissan Frontier offers a sense of driver control that can’t be duplicated. Most of its trims are available with four-wheel drive, a Dana 44 rear axle, and a switch-operated two-speed transfer case. Standard for the higher trims, Bilstein performance shock absorbers enhance the Nissan Frontier’s inherent off-road prowess. The independent double-wishbone front suspension system keeps it firmly planted on the road, while engine-speed-sensitive power steering allows for nimbleness at low speeds.
