See under the hood
With class-leading horsepower, a smooth-shifting transmission, 4WD and more, Frontier is a beast on and off the beaten path. Get up close and personal with its remarkable capability in this short video. []
Midsize trucks see plenty of action. That’s why the all-new Frontier is built up and reinforced in all the right places, with ample ground clearance to climb over big obstacles, and suspension designed to smooth out even the toughest terrain. []
Full-length, fully boxed frame
No corners were cut with Frontier’s full-length, fully boxed frame. A strong frame is what durability is all about, and Frontier has strength, to the core.
Ground clearance, approach and departure
For maximum ground clearance, approach and departure angles, Frontier’s underside is free of low-hanging components. Plus, the rear suspension comes with leaf springs over the rear axle – not underneath it – so there's even less in the way.
Suspension that performs
Frontier’s suspension is built to handle all the bumps, potholes, rocks and rough patches you can throw at it. For ultimate off-road dampening, Frontier also offers standard Bilstein® shocks. That means extra confidence and control over rugged terrain. []

Scrape by without a scratch
See the obstacles you’re dealing with, right on your touch-screen. That means less stopping, less reliance on a spotter while you’re on the trail, and more good times in your Frontier PRO-4X.
Hill Descent Control
When driving down a steep grade in 4WD, standard Hill Descent Control can help. Just push the button, ease your foot from the accelerator, and this system automatically maintains your speed and brake pressure to help control the descent.
Hill Start Assist
Charge up that mountain. When you start climbing a steep hill, the standard Hill Start Assist system will help keep you from rolling backwards. It holds brake pressure for a few seconds, allowing you time to switch from the brake pedal to the accelerator.
Active Brake Limited Slip
When Frontier detects that a wheel is beginning to lose traction, Active Brake Limited Slip kicks in. This system applies brake pressure to the wheel that's slipping, transferring power to one with a better grip.
Real-time tire monitor
Keep track of your tire pressure for safer, more confident driving with precise PSI measurements easily accessible through your Advanced Drive-Assist Display. []
U.S. instrumentation shown
Keep track of pitch, roll, and also key off-road functions like 4x4 engagement, and differential lock status for a safer, more confident day on the trail with the PRO-4X.
