How Much Will a Nissan Frontier Tow?

The 6,720-pound maximum towing capacity of the Nissan Frontier all stems from the power of the standard 3.8L DIG V6 engine.1 It generates 310 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque, which allows you to tow everything from your comfy travel trailer to your favorite fishing boat.

Towing Confidently in the Frontier

You can take complete command of your haul with the Nissan Frontier. It comes with smart towing technologies like Tow-Haul Mode, which helps optimize the transmission for more confident towing. There's also Trailer Sway Control which manages braking and engine torque to keep your trailer in line.

Safety Shield® 360 is an available suite of safety features that'll give you more confidence whether you're towing or just out for an afternoon cruise. It includes:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection
  • Rear Automatic Braking
  • Blind Spot Warning
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert
  • Lane Departure Warning
  • High Beam Assist

The Intelligent Around View® Monitor lets you put eyes on just about everything you need to. This available feature will make it easier to hitch up your trailer before the adventure and out on the trails, it'll give you a great view of potential obstacles.


How Do You Tow a Trailer Off Road?

The Nissan Frontier is a great option if you're planning on towing off-road. It's available trail-ready 4x4 system is at your beck and call with the turn of a dial. If you choose the off-road-tuned PRO-4X trim, you'll also have the capability of all-terrain features like:

  • Fender flairs
  • Red front tow hooks
  • Three skid plates
  • Electronic locking rear differential
  • Bilstein® shocks


If you're planning to tow off-road, choose an off-road trailer. They come with off-road tires and tougher wheels-they should preferably match those equipped to your truck. You'll also want to lower the pressure of your trailer's tires. This will provide a more relaxed ride.

A pro tip for towing off-road: Go slow! It can't be stressed enough. A trailer hitch, extra gear, and more tires on the ground all mean one thing when towing on rough terrain: More ways to get stuck. Take care when going through deep gullies and use the Frontier's available Hill Descent Control when towing down a hill.
