Minor changes to the trim levels were the only updates in store for 2006. But in 2007, Nissan added a new Crew Cab Long Bed trim that measured six feet. V6 models saw reduced emissions and a seatbelt reminder for passengers was made standard. 2008 was the year of package additions being added to the Frontier, namely technology upgrades for buyers.
A brand new fascia in the front alongside new headlights and a gauge cluster were key features of the 2009 Frontier. Enhanced safety was the theme of 2010, with standard stability control system, front side impact airbags and side curtain airbags. The Frontier would pass all the way through 2012 mostly unchanged. In 2013, the engine was updated to improve fuel economy and create a smoother-shifting drive. Optional climate control and backup camera as well as new GPS debuted during this year, too.
