2014 Nissan Frontier
2014 Nissan Frontier

New for 2014

The 2014 Nissan Frontier gains new alloy wheels ranging from 16- to 18-inches in size, a manual sliding rear window for SV and PRO-4X Crew Cab models, standard heated seats on the PRO-4X grades, standard Bluetooth connectivity and cruise control for the S trim, and an upgraded navigation system with NissanConnect app integration for smartphones.

Vehicle Overview

The Frontier is Nissan's compact/midsize truck, slotting below the full-size Titan. It is sold in S, SV, PRO-4X, Desert Runner, and SL grades with a choice of King or Crew Cab body styles and in rear- or four-wheel-drive configurations.

Summary

Along with the Toyota Tacoma, the 2014 Nissan Frontier is one of two remaining compact/midsize trucks left on sale in the market before the 2015 Chevrolet Colorado and 2015 GMC Canyon join the market before long. The truck is available with a 2.5-liter I-4 making 152 hp and 171 lb-ft of torque or a 4.0-liter V-6 producing 261 hp and 281 lb-ft. I-4 models are available with either a five-speed manual or automatic while trucks equipped with the V-6 are paired to a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic. Convenience and premium features such as navigation, leather upholstery, 60/40 folding seat bottom, and a roof rack with crossbars improve the truck's livability, usability as a work vehicle, and overall practicality for its size. Off-road capability remains a Fronting strong suit particularly PRO-4X models with Bilstein off-road dampers, skid plates, hill descent control/hill start assist and a locking rear differential. Fuel economy is unimpressive in the 2014 Frontier with I-4 models rated by the EPA at 17/23 mpg city/highway with the automatic and 19/23 mpg with the manual. Rear-drive V-6 trucks are estimated to achieve 16/22 mpg with either transmission. Opting for four-wheel drive drops those numbers down to 15/21 mpg with the automatic and 16/21 mpg for the manual.
Inside, the 2014 Frontier offers good space for front passengers but rear seats are tight for adult passengers particularly in King Cab models. The cabin offers ample storage space and flexibility with rear seats with a seatback and cushion that can fold down and up respectively. Depending on the body style, the Frontier has a three- or four-star rollover rating from the NHTSA (out of a possible five stars), and the truck earned a good rating for three out of four tests from the IIHS (good is the highest possible score).

What We Think

The Nissan Frontier remains a viable choice for a compact/midsize truck with its flexible cabin and bed, off-road capability, and reasonable size. In a 2013 review, we said that the Frontier "packs a lot of utility in a moderately sized package," making it a compelling choice as a work truck despite being nearly a decade old. We also noted in a 2005 review that since "The body is not perched absurdly high off its wheels," it has a lower step-in height, which makes entry and exit easier without sacrificing ground clearance. However, it makes less sense as a family vehicle because of the lack of space for rear passengers particularly in King Cab models.

2014 Nissan Frontier Diesel Prototype: Around the Block
Is a Cummins diesel coming to the Frontier? Nissan's not saying, but it did let us drive a test mule of what could become the Nissan Frontier diesel pickup truck. The torquey but noisy 2.8-liter turbodiesel engine promises 35 percent better fuel economy than a gasoline-fueled V-6.

Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner Concept Shown at 2014 Chicago Auto Show
Nissan is testing the waters for diesel power in the midsize pickup truck market with Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner project truck at the 2014 Chicago auto show. Under the hood of this Frontier is a 2.8-liter Cummins turbodiesel four-cylinder engine, and Nissan says this engine could make its way into the next-generation Frontier depending on consumer interest. If approved for production, the diesel Frontier would go up against the upcoming diesel versions of the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon pickups that go on sale later this year.

As they near the sunset of their model runs after nearly a decade on the market, Nissan continues to incrementally update the 2014 Nissan Frontier and Xterra. No major mechanical changes are in store for 2014, with the 2.5-liter I-4 and 4.0-liter V-6 still serving as the base and upgrade powerplants. But option packages and features get an upgrade for the new model year.
