Nissan became the first manufacturer to sell a compact pickup in the United States in 1958, under the Datsun name. In 1998, Nissan introduced a new compact pickup, the Frontier. In 2000, the Nissan Frontier came in three cab options: regular cab, King Cab and Crew Cab. Crew Cab is the largest cab size, but with that larger size some of the vehicle's cargo bed had to be eliminated.
When the cargo bed is measured for length, it is measured from the front wall to the inner portion of the tailgate. The 2000 Nissan Frontier Crew Cab's bed measured 54.7 inches from front to back, compared to 77.4 inches in the regular cab.
The wall-to-wall width is from one side wall of the bed to the other. Not all of the bed is usable with this measurement, as the wheel wells intrude into the cargo space. The wall-to-wall width of the 2000 Frontier Crew Cab bed is 59.8 inches. This measurement was not impacted by the cab size.
The well-to-well width is the amount of usable space between the wheel wells inside the bed. The Frontier Crew Cab has 41.7 inches of well-to-well space. This measurement is the same in all Frontier cab sizes.
The depth of the bed is taken by measuring from the floor of the bed to the top of the bed's walls. The 2000 Frontier Crew Cab had a bed depth of 17.10 inches. The cab sizes did not change the bed depth.
