What Engines Does the Nissan Frontier Have?

Drivers who want the versatility of a pickup truck in a smaller and more agile package have long turned to the Nissan Frontier. Noted for its affordability, reliability and unexpectedly-robust capability, the Nissan Frontier is a dynamic and unique model in a class that is beginning to grow into the same proportions as many half-ton pickup trucks.

The Frontier knows who it is and isn’t ashamed to be noticeably smaller than its siblings, the Nissan TITAN and Nissan TITAN XD. Despite its smaller size, however, the Frontier loves to surprise and impress – both in terms of efficiency and how much it’s able to do in a small package.
