Driving Impression

Given its age, there isn’t much mechanical refinement to the Frontier. It tries, but doesn’t like it. The 4-cylinder is loud and often overwhelmed. Acceleration with the V-6 is brisk, but it’s an unpolished engine that growls and vibrates.

Both manual gearboxes work well, although the throws of the shift lever are long. You might like that; more reminders that it’s a throwback truck. Clutch feel is satisfying.

The 5-speed automatic transmission is good, with firm and predictable shifts that aren’t troubled by searching for the next gear. It can be difficult to maintain momentum with the 4-cylinder engine using an automatic, but the V-6 delivers strong power during two-lane passing.

Even by pickup-truck standards, the ride tends to bouncy and busy; this choppiness is one product of a fairly short wheelbase. Constant corrections are often needed during highway driving.

The steering is firm, handling relatively nimble, and the body lean controlled. Still, the Frontier doesn’t like being pushed hard on curvy roads.

Walk Around

One thing you can say about the Frontier is that it looks familiar. It looks like trucks used to look. It might be a long-lived look, but it’s a good one. We wish there weren’t so much chrome, because that detracts from the character, but we like the flared wheel wells that make it suitably tough.

Adding to the ruggedness, the front bumper curves inward for better approach angles to climb over things like rocks or steep embankments.

PRO-4X and Desert Runner versions cut back on the chrome, while the Midnight Edition package for SV adds black exterior accents and black 18-inch alloy wheels. That’s the best-looking Frontier.

A roof rack can enhance utility, but looks like an afterthought and increases wind noise.

Interior Overview

New Car Test Drive
“”

If the blocky exterior feels comfortable because it’s old, the blocky interior just feels dated. It’s laid out in a sometimes confusing way, and the cabin is stocked with lots of plastic trim.

The controls are simple, and the audio controls sit high. The optional Rockford Fosgate stereo system gets a small 5.8-inch touchscreen. The standard infotainment system is okay, although its components are behind the times, with small displays and lack of Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.

The comfort of the front seats is average. They’re fine around town, but lack support for longer trips. In S and SV models, they’re thickly padded but lack full adjustment. Upper versions add a height-adjustable driver’s seat, so visibility is good.

Adults can’t fit in the jump seats in King Cab models, while kids will have to live with thin padding and upright backrests. It takes a Crew Cab to carry four or five adults.

Summary

“”

The Frontier family has some expensive members, and V-6 trucks have a lot of grunt. But if you’re comfortable with the character of an old-school pickup, and don’t want to spend a penny more than $20,000, the 2019 Nissan Frontier S might be for you. Who needs power windows in a pickup truck?

Model Lineup
