2011 Nissan Frontier Walk Around

There's a family resemblance between the midsize Nissan Frontier and the full-size Titan, but the Frontier is two feet shorter and feels like it. After climbing out of a Titan, the Frontier seems like a nice, tidy size that is perfectly suited to most light to moderate jobs.

The grille, headlights and front fascia convey an assertive look. The fender flares are big and smooth. The front end is clean, and the wheels have a lot of style. The Crew Cab looks rugged and purposeful with the optional roof rack.

The available Utili-track Bed Channel tie-down system uses five rails (two on the floor and one on each side and forward bulkhead) and cleats that slide in the channels, and allows all kinds of cargo to be tied securely in place.

Interior

The interior is comfortable and well arranged, with good rugged standard fabric upholstery (the PRO-4X trim has stylish red stitching on its black fabric seats). The King Cab's wide-opening auxiliary doors give access to the two small folding seats, while the four-door Crew Cab's rear bench offers decent comfort but limited legroom – pretty standard, though, for a midsize pickup.

The front seat layout is excellent. Gauges are attractive and easy to read, and controls are nicely laid-out and well within reach. The center console is deep, and there are lots of other places for storage, including cubbies forward of the shift lever, cupholders galore and a very thoughtful dual-level glovebox. Not to be left out, rear-seat passengers get cupholders, map pockets, grab handles, and an optional folding center armrest.

The steering wheel has short sturdy stalks, and there are convenient grab handles on the A pillars. The vinyl dashboard is less attractive in brown, but just fine in black. The bucket seats fit well; hours could be spent in them pleasurably, presuming they're not all off-road hours, but even if they were, the PRO-4X would make the time bearable.
