Nissan Announces Frontier Pricing; New Midnight Edition Is Only Excitement

Nissan just announced U.S. pricing for the 2018 Nissan Frontier mid-size pickup. The new Midnight Edition is the only new excitement for MY2018.


The Nissan Frontier mid-size pickup remains relatively unchanged for the 2018MY. It gets a few minor upgrades before its major remodel coming next year. The base 2018 Frontier S King Cab 4x2 Inline four-cylinder 5-speed manual starts at $18,990, a $600 price increase from the 2017MY. You can go here for complete pricing info.

The few enhancements for the 2018 MY Frontier include the addition of standard RearView Monitor across all models and updated base grade content – including standard A/C, cruise control, Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System, 5.0-inch color display audio and Siri Eyes Free.

Nissan is rolling out a new Midnight Edition package the Japanese automaker expects to score big with a younger generation of buyers. The ME Editions come with a gloss-black grille, 18-inch gloss-black aluminum-alloy wheels, semi-gloss-black step rails, body-color front and rear bumpers, black outside rearview mirrors and door handles, black badging and available Midnight Edition floor mats.

It’s available in Crew Cab SV 4x2 and 4x4 automatic transmission models and in a choice of Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic and Glacier White exterior colors. We aren’t sure why Nissan didn’t announce pricing on the new special edition model.

The 2018 Nissan Frontier is available now at Nissan dealers nationwide. The mid-size truck is aging and it needs a remodel, but unfortunately, it’s not coming until next year. When it does finally arrive, it can compete with the Toyota Tacoma, Chevy Colorado, GMC Canyon, and Honda Ridgeline.
