Nissan's 2015 Frontier is relatively unchanged, but some of the specific model pricing has increased slightly. The Frontier is due for a significant redesign; however, we're hearing nothing is likely to happen (in the form of a new Frontier) for at least two to three years.
For 2015, the Frontier will continue to be offered in both King Cab (what Nissan calls its extended cab) and crew-cab body styles, the latter of which will continue to be offered in both short and long wheelbases. Frontiers come in five different flavors — S, SV, SL, Desert Runner and Pro-4X — with prices ranging from $18,850 to $36,120 (prices include destination).
Frontiers will continue to offer the 2.5-liter inline-four-cylinder and 4.0-liter V-6 engines with a manual or automatic transmission paired to either engine. Crew-cab models with the long-bed option give customers 13 extra inches of bed length for around $1,000 (depending on trim).
Despite the price increase, the new Nissan midsize pickup is still the least expensive competitor in the segment; however, we still do not have Toyota's complete 2015 price list. Traditionally, Toyota has commanded premium pricing in the segment, but that could change with the entrance of GM's two new players — the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon.
