The 2017 Nissan Frontier is available in 2 different engine configurations. Both pair well with the superb design of the car and lend it the ability to perform all tasks without any hiccups.
The 4-cylinder inline-4 engine is capable of generating 152 HP. Despite being a small engine, it performs exceedingly well at both high and low speeds.

Buyers can choose 4WD or rear-wheel drive on all models but the 4WD can only be paired with the V6 engine. The Pro-4X is a perfect off-road vehicle thanks to its redesigned suspension, skid plates, and struts that can easily handle any kind of rough terrain on or off the road.
