Payload Capacity

As part of a recent redesign and model overhaul, the Nissan Frontier can now haul more than ever. With the launch of its third generation, the model received higher walls and deeper cargo beds, which helps increase payload capacity and put it more in line with the larger Titan.

  • Maximum payload capacity for the Nissan Frontier: 1,610 pounds
  • Payload capacity for the Nissan Titan: 1,690 pounds

Towing Capacity

Once again, as the full-sized option when compared to the light-duty Frontier, the Nissan Titan offers a great towing capacity. Both are more than capable of taking your family camper or light boat out for the weekend, which means choosing between them may come down to personal preference.

  • Towing capacity for the Nissan Frontier: 6,720 pounds
  • Towing capacity for the Nissan Titan: 9,310 pounds
