This truck's interior is outdated compared to what rival midsize pickups offer.

The infotainment system and driver-assistance tech are laughable.

Pro-4X is the off-road-focused trim of the Nissan Frontier and it should be quite capable out on the trail.

This truck is an honest, if antiquated, workhorse.

For 2020, there's a brand-new powertrain under the Frontier's hood.

It consists of a 3.8-liter V6 engine bolted to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
