Nissan finally took the wraps off the 2018 Frontier midsize pickup, releasing photos and pricing for the truck that is now on sale at dealerships. It gets standard RearView Monitor and upgraded base-grade content, including Bluetooth phone system, a 5-inch color display audio system and Apple's Siri Eyes Free integration. An all-new Midnight Edition Frontier, with a gloss-black grille, aluminum-alloy wheels and other features, will be available later in a choice of Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic and Glacier White exterior colors.
Otherwise, the truck, which comes in a wide variety of King Cab and Crew Cab models and trim configurations, doesn't appear to break the mold much. Signature Nissan themes come standard, including angled strut grille, large bumpers, short front and rear overhangs, a tailgate spoiler and stamped, geometric fender flares. It also gets a tinted front window, rear privacy glass and a rear-bumper hitch ball provision. Upgrade to the SL trim and you get chrome on the front grille, outside mirrors and door handles, tubular step rails, front fog lights and a tilt and power sliding moonroof, also available on the Crew Cab SV.
The Crew Cab SV also comes with a long bed option that measures more than 13 inches longer than the standard crew bed. Both Crew Cab and King Cab versions offer an available factory spray-on bedliner and Utili-track Channel System, which features five special cross-section rails mounted in the bed, which pair with removable utility cleats to provide multiple options for securing cargo.
