NISSAN FRONTIER KING CAB - DESIGN
The Nissan Frontier is first and foremost a workhorse – designed to tackle both professional and personal projects. Every Frontier starts with a full-length, fully boxed ladder frame, then adds a choice of two powerful engines – 4.0-liter DOHC V6 rated at 261 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque, or a 152-horsepower 2.5-liter inline 4-cylinder (King Cab only) – mated to either a 5-speed manual (I4), 6-speed manual (V6) or 5-speed automatic transmission.
Enhancements for the 2018 model year include the addition of standard RearView Monitor across all models and updated base grade content – including standard air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, 5.0-inch color display audio and Siri® Eyes Free.
In addition, a new Midnight Edition is offered on Frontier for the first time (late availability). The Midnight Edition package includes a gloss-black grille, 18-inch gloss black aluminum-alloy wheels, semi-gloss black step rails, body-color front and rear bumpers, black outside rearview mirrors and door handles and black badging. It is available in Crew Cab SV 4x2 and 4x4 automatic transmission models and in a choice of Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic and Glacier White exterior colors.

Authentic Truck Style, Innovation to Get the Job Done
The exterior design of the 2018 Frontier embodies a number of signature Nissan truck themes -- an angled strut grille, large bumpers, short front and rear overhangs and large, stamped-steel geometric fender flares.
Long Bed models are available with Frontier Crew Cab SV. Measuring more than 13 inches longer than the Crew Cab's standard bed, the Long Bed models offer the roomy interior of the Crew Cab plus the extended bed space of the King Cab. Frontier also provides levels of innovation in an area where it matters most to truck owners -- the bed. Both Frontier King Cab and Crew Cab offer an available high-utility bed that includes a factory-applied spray-on bedliner and first-in-class Utili-track Channel System.
The Utili-track system provides ultimate cargo hauling flexibility through the use of five special ''C'' cross-section rails mounted in the bed (two channels in the bed floor and one each on the bed side rails and the bed header panel). Removable utility cleats slide into the channels, providing a wide range of attaching points for securing cargo.
In addition to the tie-down cleats, a full range of accessories is offered for use with the channel system, including bed dividers, sliding cargo trays and modular storage units.
The Frontier exterior also features a tinted front window, rear privacy glass and a hitch ball provision on the rear bumper. Frontier SL models include chrome front grille, chrome outside mirrors and door handles, along with tubular step rails and front fog lights. A tilt and power sliding moonroof is available on Crew Cab SV and standard on the SL model, while a tailgate spoiler is standard on all models.
The new Midnight Edition adds a gloss-black grille, semi gloss-black step rails, body-color front and rear bumpers, black outside rearview mirrors and door handles and black Midnight Edition badging.
Eight exterior colors are offered for 2018: Forged Copper, Gun Metallic, Magnetic Black, Glacier White, Cayenne Red, Brilliant Silver, Lava Red and Arctic Blue Metallic.NISSAN FRONTIER KING CAB - INTERIOR
