Check out www.nissanusa.com and on thier website has new for 2005 vehicles. The link shows interior and exterior for both 2005 frontier and pathfinder built on the titan frame. Frontier looks cool but a slightly smaller and alot less features then the titan. The pathfinder moved alittle to much toward the armada. There is shadows for 2 other future vehicles one of which is probably the updated xterra also on the titan frame, the other i dunno ya got me. Any ideas?

Well the first shadowed one looks like maybe the SuperCharged Frontier Club Cab. The second shadow looks like an Xterra.

I don't think they are on a Titan frame though. I think they have 'dowscaled' the Titan frame for the Frontier and will build the Pathfinder, Frontier and Xterra off of that.

I agree. It appears that they have just modeled the Frontier frame from the Titan frame, but it doesn't look like it is the same.

Starting with strong, fully boxed frame rails, the new “F-Alpha” platform provides a rugged foundation on which to build. The 2005 Frontier's wheelbase is 9.8 inches longer than the current Frontier, which helps enhance ride comfort and stability. The overall length of 205.5 inches is larger than the current model (+2.6 inches King Cab, + 5.6 inches Crew Cab), though it remains a perfect "activity size" for buyers who don't need a true full-size pickup. Width and height measurements are also increased with the new design.

The 2005 Frontier shares its suspension layout and many component designs with Titan, including an all-steel double-wishbone front suspension and rigid leaf rear suspension with overslung leaf springs and a long suspension stroke for optimized off-road ride. Frontier also offers standard power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering and 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).

The Frontier, like Titan, is also expected to provide exceptional acceleration, towing capacity and all-around off-roading ability, due in large measure to its powerful new engine – a 4.0-liter DOHC V6 producing 250-plus horsepower and 270-plus lb-ft of torque (final figures will be announced closer to production). These figures represent increases of 70 horsepower and 68 lb-ft of torque over those of the current normally aspirated 3.3-liter V6-equipped Frontier.


The new 4.0-liter V6, based on the award-winning Nissan VQ engine series used in the 350Z, Maxima, Altima, Murano and Quest, is specifically tuned for the unique demands of truck use, while at the same time offering excellent fuel efficiency and smooth operation.

The nissan rep told me all new frontiers and pathfinder where going to be built on a modifyed version of the titan frame. He could be wrong but it made sense to improve size, strength, and cost with the new plant. Any thoughts?

I give the '05 Frontier a big 'thumbs up'...the restyle job on the '01 really sold me on it back then, and I STILL get compliments on it...the '05 just really refines it and I'm sure it'll sell like hotcakes...very sharp! :)

2005 Nissan Frontier Overview

The larger, more powerful 2005 Nissan Frontier pickup, which is offered in both King Cab and Crew Cab body configurations, has more than a passing resemblance to the recently introduced Nissan Titan full-size pickup. Along with its modern, rugged styling, the all-new Frontier – which goes on sale at Nissan dealers nationwide in winter 2004 – shares a number of significant features with Titan, including its rugged suspension design, innovative spray-in bedliner, Utili-track™ bed channel tie-down system and fully boxed, all-steel frame based on the Titan platform.

The 2005 Frontier shares its suspension layout and many component designs with Titan, including an all-steel double-wishbone front suspension and rigid leaf rear suspension with overslung leaf springs and a long suspension stroke for optimized off-road ride. Frontier also offers standard power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering and 4-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock Braking System (ABS).

The 4.0-liter V6 design includes Continuous Valve Timing Control (C-VTC), Nissan variable Induction Control System (NICS), silent timing chain, microfinished camshaft and crankshaft surfaces, molybdenum-coated pistons, resin intake manifold, digital knock control system, cross flow engine coolant pattern, high capacity muffler, lightweight aluminum block and platinum-tipped spark plugs. The Frontier V6 will be assembled at Nissan's advanced engine production facility in Decherd, Tenn.
