Halfway through its product cycle, Nissan is updating its Frontier midsize pickup with exterior changes and a new PRO-4X offroad trim level.

On the outside, the Frontier receives a bolder grille, a new headlight design and new 16- and 18-inch aluminum wheels. Two new exterior colors will also be available: Red Brick and Navy Blue.

The PRO-4X offroad model adds new hardware, including Bilstein offroad high-pressure shock absorbers; additional skid plates on the oil pan and transfer case; an electronic rear differential locker; two- or four-wheel limited-slip; and 16-inch aluminum-alloy offroad wheels with large BFGoodrich P265/75R16 Rugged Trail tires.

Inside, the PRO-4X has styling cues that differentiate it from the rest of the Frontier lineup, including a leather-appointed red-stitched shifter knob (M/T only) and steering wheel, a chrome accent ring around the white-faced meter gauges, and a trip computer. The Crew Cab PRO-4X Value Truck Package adds unique black leather-appointed front seats with red stitching, an eight-way power driver's seat, a four-way power passenger's seat, heated front seats, dual heated outside mirrors, and a fold-down center armrest in the back.

PRO-4X King Cab models receive a factory-applied spray-on bedliner, bed rail caps, a Utili-track channel system and four adjustable tie-down cleats, which are also standard on the Crew Cab.

All PRO-4Xs feature body-colored bumpers, grille, mirrors and door handles, as well as fog lamps. Added comfort and convenience features include cruise control, remote keyless entry, power windows and door locks, and dual power outside mirrors.
