The 2016 Nissan Frontier King Cab 4x2 model has a maximum towing capacity of 6,500 pounds, according to the official Nissan website. The maximum towing capacity of 6,500 pounds is achievable if the truck carries no additional cargo and no passengers.
A seven-pin connector trailer wire and tow hitch receiver are necessary for achieving the maximum towing capacity. The precise towing capacity depends on the number of passengers and cargo weight. Each additional pound of cargo lowers the maximum towing capacity. The 2016 Nissan Frontier rated the worst in class in maximum towing capacity and maximum payload, notes U.S. News & World Report.
