What the Truck?! The 2017 – 2019 Nissan Frontier 


What the Truck?! The 2017 – 2019 Nissan Frontier 

Are you the sort of truck buyer that doesn’t want to swipe through 457 touchscreen pages, just to find the virtual button that will stop the seat heater from ‘roasting your chestnuts over an open fire’? Do you not want to worry about turbos breaking, or bashing your automatic running boards on some giant rock or curb? Then you’ll be delighted to know, that the 2017, 2018 and 2019 Nissan Frontier is still as charmingly rustic as the region that it’s named for. You can use it like a truck, knowing that it will probably be running just fine when you trade it in many years from now. You won’t spend a lot of money for it either. Especially if you buy a slightly used Nissan Frontier from Off Lease Only. So let’s take a look at a 2017 – 2019 Nissan Frontier buyers guide, and see why it has everyone in the automotive press saying: What the Truck?!


It’s not uncommon to find some self-important automotive journalist lambasting Nissan for continuing to sell the exact same Frontier pickup truck that it introduced in 2005. But the beauty of this truck is its relative simplicity. Which somehow still feels relevant, nearly a decade and-a-half after it was first introduced. This means that you can find a loaded used 2019 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab 4×4 V6 for sale with low miles and the balance of the original factory warranty at Off Lease Only, for around $23,000 (depending on the mileage, equipment and condition of course). That’s $3,000 less then the price of a brand-new Frontier Crew Cab base model. Plus, you can get up to an extended service plan for added peace of mind, ship it anywhere in the country, and still save thousands. So let’s look at the 2017 – 2019 Nissan Frontier features, options and models.

Used 2017 – 2019 Nissan Frontier Models

The 2017, 2018 and 2019 Nissan Frontier is still a relatively simple body-on-frame truck that’s available as an extended cab (called the Frontier King Cab), and the four-door Frontier Crew Cab. 2WD and 4WD are obviously available, the bed comes in either 5 foot or 6.1 foot lengths. And there’s only two engines available: a 2.5L 4cyl that makes 152 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque. Or a 4.0L V6 that makes a very healthy 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque. The four-cylinder can be connected to either a 5-speed manual or a 5-speed automatic. The V6 can be paired with either the automatic, or a 6-speed manual. So picking the right used Nissan Frontier for you, should be pretty easy. Now let’s look at the different trim levels.


The entry-level 2017, 2018 and 2019 Nissan Frontier S King Cab is about as simple a truck as you can get. It comes standard with 15-inch steel wheels, manual rollup windows, a radio and cloth seats. Trucks with the automatic transmission automatically get air conditioning, cruise control, steering wheel audio controls, and a four speaker audio system.

A Value Truck option group added fog lights, rear parking sensors, a rearview camera (which became standard equipment in 2018), adjustable cargo tie-downs with a spray-in bedliner, a trailer hitch, dual zone automatic climate control, an upgraded speaker audio system and heated front seats. A sunroof was available as a standalone option on the 2017 – 2019 Nissan Frontier SV Crew Cab. And both the 2019 Nissan Frontier S and 2019 Nissan Frontier SV got a larger 7-inch touchscreen display.


The 2017 – 2019 Nissan Frontier Desert Runner was a special 2WD/V6 option that was available for both the King Cab and Crew Cab, and featured the same equipment found on the SV trim level, in addition to off-road Bilstein shocks, unique wheels, off-road tires, unique upholstery and exterior trim and an 8-way manually adjustable driver seat.


The 2017 – 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X was designed for off roaders with unique features like skid plates, a locking rear differential, unique wheels with off-road tires, automatic headlamps, unique exterior trim, a leather wrapped steering wheel, a 5.8-inch touchscreen filled with the Nissan Connect infotainment interface and navigation. The 2017 – 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x Crew Cab could be optioned with a luxury package that included leather upholstery with leather inserts on the door panels, power operated heated front seats, heated mirrors and a roof rack.


The top-of-the-line 2017 – 2019 Nissan Frontier SL came with everything on the Frontier Pro-4x with the luxury package, in addition to 18 inch wheels and running boards.


The 2018 – 2019 Nissan Frontier Midnight Edition is a special appearance package for the 2018 – 2019 Nissan Frontier SV Crew Cab 4×4 and 4×2.
