The 2007 Nissan Frontier King Cab features flip-up jump seats; the Crew Cab has a fold-up rear bench seat that seats three. The cabin feels roomy and has easy-to-read-and-operate gauges and controls. The seats feel comfortable. It lacks some of the refinement of other more expensive trucks, but if you need an everyday work truck, the Frontier makes a good choice.
Standard features include cloth upholstery, front bucket seats, speed-proportional power steering, power door locks, power windows, a 12V power outlet, a tachometer, and an AM/FM audio system with four speakers.
The SE features a front console with storage, air-conditioning, a tilt steering wheel, and an AM/FM/CD audio system with four speakers.

Performance & Handling
The 2007 Frontier offers two engines: the 2.5-liter, 152-hp four-cylinder in the XE and the more powerful 4.0-liter V-6 that generates 261 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque in the other trim levels. Transmission options include a five-speed manual (for the XE), a six-speed manual, or a six-speed automatic (only an option for the Nismo). Rear drive comes standard; part-time four-wheel drive remains optional for all but the XE. Four-wheel drive includes automatic-locking hubs. Ride quality seems good for a vehicle in its class, and it offers responsive steering.
The 4.0-liter engine and six-speed automatic transmission maximize performance in the Nismo. Ground clearance totals 10.1 inches, making the Frontier a capable off-road vehicle.
Properly equipped the 2007 Nissan Frontier offers a maximum towing capacity of 6500 pounds.
Double wishbone front and solid live axle rear independent suspensions, front and rear stabilizer bars, four-wheel ABS, front and rear ventilated disc brakes, and electronic brake force distribution improve handling.
Standard safety equipment for the 2007 Nissan Frontier includes four-wheel ABS and tire pressure monitoring. Side-impact and side -curtain airbags with rollover protection remain optional. An optional Traction package in the LE and Nismo adds stability control, hill descent control, and hill start assist. In government crash tests, the Frontier earns four out of five stars for frontal-impact protection and five stars for side-impact crash tests.
