6 Reasons Why the 2017 Nissan Frontier is Perfect for Tailgating


Now that football season is coming up, it’s time to get your friends and family together for tailgate parties. Whether you’re rooting for an old college team or the New York Giants, there’s one perfect pickup truck to make your NJ tailgating experience better: the new Nissan Frontier. Still need convincing? Below are several reasons why you should consider grabbing a 2017 Nissan Frontier from our Denville truck dealership before tailgating season kicks into high gear.



  1. Locked Tailgate and Cargo Bed Light 

The Nissan Frontier truck has numerous built-in security features to enhance any tailgating adventure. A favorite amongst many Frontier owners is its locked tailgate, which gives you confidence that your valuables will be safe while cheering on your favorite team. The spacious bed also has a bright light so you can easily find snacks and other supplies if you are tailgating at a night game.

  1. Utili-track® Cargo System

Sports fans also enjoy the Nissan Frontier because of its highly functional Utili-track® cargo-carrying system. The versatile truck feature can help you haul more and keep your tailgating gear secure. All you have to do is anchor your cargo to the truck’s channels (which run along the truck bed and wall) with strong aluminum-alloy cleats. The system also includes tie-down loops so you can make sure large or unstable loads are securely tied to the truck bed.



  1. NissanConnect Mobile Apps

It’s important to stay connected with friends when you’re at a tailgating party. Luckily, you can communicate with them using NissanConnect. The Social Apps feature allows you to check your Facebook feed and Twitter updates at any time. You can also use the truck’s sophisticated text-to-speech technology (In-Vehicle Messaging) to read your social media updates out loud if you’d rather cook a hot dog or watch another game on the big screen.

  1. Rockford Fosgate Audio System

Rockford Fosgate is known for manufacturing high-quality audio systems—and it found its way into the Nissan Frontier for 2017. This premium audio system features eight regular speakers and two subwoofers. It can also connect to popular music apps like Pandora, SiriusXM Satellite Radio, and iHeart Radio so you can click on the tunes when you’re not listening for the latest scores.



  1. Towing Capacity 

Depending on the trim, the Nissan Frontier has the perfect towing capacity for tailgating events. For example, the SV 4-cylinder Frontier truck has a maximum towing capacity up to 3,760 lbs. while the Desert Runner model can pull up to 6,710 lbs. Its power makes it the ideal football tailgating truck since it can haul equipment, food and other supplies to with ease.

  1. Tailgating Accessories 

Make your next tailgate better with any of the Frontier’s available accessories to improve your overall experience. For example, you can add a step rail if the kids can’t climb onto the truck, or buy a sliding bed extender to increase your bed length. The lightweight yet durable aluminum bed extenders are fully adjustable, and you can secure them anywhere along the truck’s Utili-track system.  NWD
