Nissan is looking at two potential options, the first is a hybrid system.

The 2014 Nissan Frontier

Category: Nissan | Author: | Date: October 5th, 2013

Under the hood the car offers a choice of a 261-horsepower, 281-pound-foot 4.0-liter V-6 engine or a 152-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder. Improvements to the engine’s internal components reduced friction and boosted gas mileage slightly. The four-cylinder it is ill-suited to heavier duty. Both 4×2 and 4×4 are available.

In 4×2 guise, four-cylinder models offer a choice of five-speed manual transmission or five-speed automatic; V-6 models can choose between a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic. At 4×4 Frontier, the V-6 engine is your only option, mated to either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic.

From as low as 15 mpg city and 21 mpg highway (4×4 V-6 automatic models) to as much as 19 mpg city and 23 mpg highway (4×2 four-cylinder manual models), the Frontier isn’t an ideal commuter vehicle in any form.
