2015 Nissan Frontier Exterior

The 2015 Nissan Frontier resembles some of Nissan’s other big vehicle offerings like the Titan and Armada, which we think is a good thing. It looks athletic and capable, though above all it is versatile, especially the Crew Cab models. The bed goes up to 6.1 feet in length, and off-road equipment on upper trims allow the Frontier to bring all the equipment it can carry in the unlikeliest of places.

2015 Nissan Frontier Performance

The 2015 Nissan Frontier is motivated by one of two engines.

Standard on the King Cab is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine producing 152 horsepower and 171 pound-feet of torque, which comes with either a five-speed manual or five-speed automatic. Standard on the Crew Cab and available on the King Cab is a 4.0-liter V6 producing 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque, and this time the available manual goes up to six speeds. The four-cylinder can tow up to 3,500 pounds and the V6 up to 6,500 pounds.

2015 Nissan Frontier Efficiency

As expected, the 2015 Nissan Frontier’s smaller engine is the most economical. The four-cylinder gets 19 mpg city/23 mpg highway with the manual and 17/23 mpg with the automatic. Meanwhile, the V6 gets 16/22 mpg with either transmission, but that gets knocked down to 16/21 mpg with the 4WD manual and 15/21 with the 4WD automatic.
