Coast Nissan An SLO Car Dealer Brings You A First Look At The 2019 Nissan Frontier

Midsize pickups are becoming increasingly popular with buyers at dealerships like the SLO car dealership. The 2019 Nissan Frontier has an advantage over many domestic rivals because it’s tried and tested. Drivers appreciate the Frontier for its rugged reliability, great value, outstanding versatility and affordability. As a daily driver, it’s a great alternative to a sedan for families on the go.

When you go into an SLO car dealer to check it out the 2019 Nissan Frontier, you'll find there are five different trim levels and two engine options to choose from. The Frontier lineup starts with the entry-level Frontier S, and moves up to the SV, Desert Runner, Pro-4X and SL. All trim levels are available in crew cab and king cab body styles, apart from the top-of-the-range SL which is only offered as a crew cab model.

The standard powerplant in the S and SV versions of the 2019 Nissan Frontier is a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that puts out 152 horsepower and 171 lb-ft of torque. All other versions of the Frontier get a powerful 4.0-liter V6 block that’s good for 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque. Depending on the trim level and engine specified, the Nissan features five- or six-speed manual transmissions as well as a five-speed automatic option. The S, SV, Pro-4X and SL variants of the 2019 Nissan Frontier get standard rear-wheel drive, but four-wheel drive is available for every version other than the Desert Runner.

The automotive press gives the Nissan Frontier thumbs up, with Autotrader writing: “... when it comes down to the basics of what pickup buyers need in a small truck, the Frontier has it in spades. Smaller and more agile than its larger rivals, the Frontier demonstrates impressive abilities in the areas of towing, hauling and off-roading. With its available V6 engine and numerous configurations, the Frontier has aged well over the years.”

If you’re looking for a tough, no-nonsense work truck at an incredibly competitive price, the Frontier S is hard to beat, with a starting MSRP well below the $20,000 threshold. It's not as basic as you might imagine at that price though, as it comes standard with features like a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system, Siri Eyes Free, a rearview monitor, Bluetooth connectivity, cruise control and a couple of 12-volt DC power outlets for extra utility.

A 2019 Nissan Frontier can fulfil a vast range of tasks and be the perfect vehicle to help you and your family take part in any number of exciting outdoor activities. But you believe the real fun starts when the pavement ends, the off-road focused Pro-4X is the way to go. As well as four-wheel drive and the V6 engine, the Pro-4X also comes standard with Bilstein off-road performance shock absorbers and 16-inch alloys wheels shod with P265/75R16 mud- and snow-rated all-terrain tires for extra capability off-road.

Of course, if taking things easy and a little more comfort and convenience is what you prefer, the 2019 Nissan Frontier SL has you covered. It comes with standard automatic headlights, step rails, body-color side moldings, a chrome grille and rear bumper, Nissan Voice Recognition for navigation and audio, leather seats, a premium audio system, dual-zone climate control, and an eight-way power adjustable driver’s seat.
