If you are in the market for a pickup truck, you likely know exactly why. Perhaps you do a lot of landscaping or other such work on the side, and you need a vehicle that can carry a lot of tools and loads of shrubbery in the truck bed. Maybe you play just as hard as you work, and you enjoy weekends at the lake with your trusty fishing boat. Whatever the case may be, you have your reasons for wanting to drive a pickup truck, and one of those reasons may involve being able to tow something behind it. Nissan offers three pickup trucks in its lineup right now, including the midsize Frontier. How much can the 2017 Nissan Frontier tow? Read on!
Maximum towing capacity
The towing capacity varies by trim level. When properly equipped, the 2017 Nissan Frontier can tow as much as 6,710 pounds behind it. That’s made possible by the available V6 engine that is capable of producing 261 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque inside the Frontier SV King Cab 4×2 and the Frontier Desert Runner King Cab. That’s enough capacity to bring a trailer full of tools, a couple of jet skis for a lake adventure, or just about any other item you can think of to make good use of this versatile pickup truck. The S model with the four-cylinder engine can tow up to 3,760 pounds behind it, so even with the most basic Frontier model, you are still getting plenty of towing power.
