2021 Nissan Frontier is a nice compact pickup truck, trust me. The car is really very comfortable and very easy to drive and its V6 engine just gets all the work done.
Also, the Pro-4X trim is a capable off-roader. The front seats of the car are very comfy. Also, the infotainment system is reasonably user-friendly.
Sadly, the 2021 Nissan Frontier has some flaws too. The cabin and all of the technology in it are all old-fashioned.
Also, the amenities list, the driver assistance features are too short.
Talking about the gas mileage, the gas mileage level of the 2021 Nissan Frontier is below average for the class. And almost all its rival has got higher towing and hauling capabilities.
Engine, Transmission, and Performance
The 2021 Nissan Frontier takes over the naturally aspirated 3.8 liter V-6 that was launched on the last-gen model of 2020.
And the engine generates 310 horsepower as well as 281 pound-feet of torque. It matches with a 9-speed automatic transmission and rear- or four-wheel drive.
Fuel Economy and Real-World MPG
Well, Nissan hasn’t announced yet the fuel-economy estimates for the 2021 Nissan Frontier.
However, since the frontier has the same V-6 powertrain that inspired the former generation, we expect to see about 18 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.
Safety and Driver-Assistance Features
The 2021 Nissan frontier provides different kinds of driver-assistance technology. And this is part of the Nissan Safety Shield 360, unlike its predecessor.
The highlights include:
- Automated emergency
- Automatic high-beams as well as
- Class-exclusive rear automated emergency braking.
Infotainment and Connectivity
The 2021 Nissan Frontier comes with an 8.0-inch touchscreen standard. However, a 90-inch display is available now.
Right below the screen, the 2021 car offers physical knobs for stereo volume and tuning as well.
And the standard connectivity features include the Android Auto integration, Apple CarPlay as well as several charging outlets. One of them is a USB-C port.
The 2021 Nissan Frontier can be had also with a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot as well as wireless smartphone charging.
Also, buyers can upgrade the sound system to a 9-speaker Fender unit for an extra cost.
How much will it cost to insure a Nissan frontier?
Well, the actual cost of insuring a Nissan frontier will depend on different kinds of factors.
Not excluding your deductible, the type of insurance you choose. As well as the level of coverage that you actually want.
Also, your gender, age, credit score, location, and driving record can have an impact also on your insurance rates.
Towing and Payload Capacity
The towing capacity of the car tops out at the same 6720 pounds as that of the former generations. And this simply means that it falls short still of rivals.
Just like GMC Canyon, Chevy Colorado, and Jeep Gladiator and they all can pull 7650 pounds at least.
The maximum payload of Nissan increase by 160 pounds to 1610 pounds.
Warranty and Maintenance Coverage
The 2021 Nissan Frontier provides competitive limited and powertrain warranties compared with the rest of mid-sized pickup trucks.
But, almost all the competitors except the Honda Ridgeline adds some type of included scheduled maintenance.
The 2021 Nissan Frontier is priced starting at $27,090 for the King Cab/long bed combo and it is priced at $28,200 for the Crew Cab/short bed combo.
And this price is even higher than the base price of most rivals.
Also, the range-topping Frontier Pro-4X is priced starting at $37,790, and this is less than most rivals’ top-trim prices.
