Offering plenty of choices in the luxury and performance departments, the sturdy yet refined new 2002 Nissan Frontier King Cab will prove to be a versatile machine that will meet your work and family needs with its wide assortment of packages available. With its roomy interior, you can load up with passengers as easily as you can pack its bed with materials and equipment.

Available Models
To accommodate a broad variety of practical requirements and personal preferences for creature comforts, the 2002 line up offers a Standard Model King Cab, XE King Cab, XE V6 King Cab, SE V6 King Cab, and the S/C (SuperCharged) King Cab.

Interior Features
Basic fare on the entry-level model includes a center console, cloth seats, full carpeting, reclining front bucket seats, and rear fold-down vinyl jump seats. Subsequent models pile on anything from an AM/FM cassette/CD player to air conditioning, power door locks, power windows, cruise control, tilt steering column, brushed-aluminum interior trim and blue-tinted gauges, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

Exterior Features
The sophisticated yet rugged exterior of the Nissan Frontier King Cab features a locking tailgate, multi-tiered bed storage, double-wall cargo bed with four bed tie-down hooks, cargo bed lamp, and black front bumper and fender flares. Other models offer assorted features like step rails, black chrome headlight surround, rear privacy glass, body-color front bumper and fender flares, and a sliding rear window.

In the performance department, both the standard Frontier and Frontier SE are equipped with a 2.4-litre, DOHC, 16-valve, four-cylinder engine that produces 143 horsepower and 154 lb-ft of torque. The standard transmission is five-speed manual, with four-speed automatic with overdrive available as an option.

XE V6 and SE V6 models turn up the volume with a 3.3-litre, SOHC, 12-valve six-cylinder engine with an output of 170 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque. Each vehicle features a four-wheel drive system with auto-locking brakes. The Frontier XE V6 comes with standard five-speed manual transmission and limited slip differential, while the Frontier SE V6 has four-speed automatic with overdrive.

For maximum power, the Frontier S/C King Cab headlines a SuperCharged 3.3-litre, SOHC, 12-valve six-cylinder engine, this time cranking out 210 horsepower and 246 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a standard five-speed manual transmission, limited slip differential, a sport-tuned suspension, and four-wheel drive.

Safety and Security
No matter which of these outstanding models you choose, each Frontier King Cab packs safety standards that include dual depowered front air bags with passenger air bag cut-off switch, three-point front seatbelts, two-point rear seatbelts, front crumple zones, hood buckling creases, and side impact door beams. The SE V6 and S/C models sport fog lights, and all top three models feature four-wheel ABS brakes for maximum control.
