The Frontier has standard head airbag curtains for front and rear seats that act as a forgiving barrier between the driver and outboard passenger\'s upper bodies and the window and pillars. Combined with high-strength steel door beams and lower side airbags this system increases head protection in broadside collisions. The Wrangler doesn\'t offer side airbag protection for the head and are only available for the front seats.

The Frontier has standard Active Head Restraints, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Active Head Restraints system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The Wrangler doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

Both the Frontier and the Wrangler have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, height-adjustable front shoulder belts, plastic fuel tanks, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, rearview cameras and available rear parking sensors.

To maximize occupant safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Nissan Frontier have pretensioners to eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision and force limiters to limit the pressure the belts will exert on the passengers.

For enhanced safety, the front seat shoulder belts of the Nissan Frontier are height-adjustable to accommodate a wide variety of driver and passenger heights. A better fit can prevent injuries and the increased comfort also encourages passengers to buckle up.

The Frontier King Cab has shoulder harnesses for all passengers. Shoulder harnesses are 10% more effective than lap belts in preventing injuries from collisions. Recent studies indicate that lap belts alone may cause as many or more injuries than they prevent.

The Frontier Crew Cab has standard child safety locks to prevent children from opening the rear doors.

The Frontier has standard front seat side-impact airbags and head airbags for both seat rows, which act as a forgiving barrier between the passengers and the door. Combined with high-strength steel door beams this system increases protection from broadside collisions.

Using vehicle speed sensors and seat sensors, smart airbags in the Frontier deploy with different levels of force or don’t deploy at all to help better protect passengers of all sizes in different collisions.

The Frontier has standard Active Head Restraints, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the Active Head Restraints system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries.

The Frontier has standard four-wheel antilock disc brakes for quicker stops and controlled steering ability, especially under poor traction conditions.

The Frontier offers four-wheel drive to maximize traction under poor conditions, especially in ice and snow.

To prevent wheel spin and loss of control under poor traction conditions, full range traction control is standard on the Nissan Frontier.

The Frontier has standard Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC), which uses the antilock brake hardware along with powerful software and additional sensors to detect the beginning of a skid. VDC then intervenes by automatically applying the brake at one appropriate wheel, preventing a skid.

When descending a steep, off-road slope, the Frontier 4x4 Automatic’s standard Hill Descent Assist allows you to creep down safely.

The Frontier V6 offers optional Rear Sonar System to help warn drivers about vehicles, pedestrians or other obstacles behind their vehicle. The Frontier also has a standard backup monitor to help drivers see any and all obstacles behind their vehicle.

Compared to metal, the Frontier’s plastic fuel tank can withstand harder, more intrusive impacts without leaking; this decreases the possibility of fire.

The Frontier’s gas tank is mounted inside the frame rails in front of the rear axle to optimally protect the fuel tank in a collision. A gas tank mounted behind the rear axle is more susceptible to rear collisions.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety does 40 MPH moderate front offset crash tests on new cars. In this test, results indicate that the Nissan Frontier Crew Cab is safe:
