Brand-new 2020 Nissan Frontier will hit the markets later this year. More importantly, the new pickup will get a redesign. We agree the current model looks aging and new refreshments are a must. Luckily, Nissan realized that and it will now introduce a new design that will look impressive.
On top of that, the interior now looks more car-like and it looks very modern. Nissan plans to improve performances as well. There will be two engine and two gearbox choices. Frontier is available in two body styles too. It is a practical mid-size pickup truck that outsold Titan model last year. The mid-size pickup truck segment is getting hotter and hotter. Ford is offering new Ranger, and we can’t forget new Toyota Tacoma and Honda Ridgeline.
2020 Nissan Frontier Exterior
The arriving pickup will look rugged once again. However, the 2020 Nissan Frontier will surely look more upscale and more modern. Nissan will install plenty of refreshments for its new pickup. For the start, Frontier will get new architecture. Lately, speculations were suggesting the same platform that underpins the Navara model.
Now, it seems that Nissan developed an all-new architecture. Moreover, the very same platform is under production in Mississippi. New 2020 Frontier will get more aggressive styling cues. The mean stance is highlighted by the new look of the front fascia. Modern headlights and new front grille are looking impressive. Unfortunately, the same 16-inch wheels are still in the offer.
Cabin Offers High-Quality Materials and Surfaces
The interior will now look truly amazing. The aging cabin is the past and the upcoming 2020 Nissan Frontier is ready for something new. For the start, the interior is equipped with more high-quality materials and surfaces. Comfort is improved and everything from the inside looks modern and up to date.
However, Frontier kept one good thing from the past, a practical cabin. The layout is very simple and thanks to the new platform there will be more interior room. You can buy new Frontier in King Cab or Crew Cab variants. Crew Cab offers a rear bench for three passengers. Seats are wrapped in all-new cloth upholstery. Leather seats are optional once again. As for the cargo area, Frontier will also get more space in this segment.
Nissan is about to introduce a new V6 engine. The same engine powers new Titan pickup. The 2020 Nissan Frontier will now be able to produce 300 horses. The four-cylinder unit is mated to a new 7-speed transmission. A 2.5-liter engine remains standard and it generates 155 hp and 175 lb-ft of torque. This engine is still using a 5-speed manual gearbox.
However, an automatic transmission is also available. We still don’t know what will happen with the current optional powertrain. It is a 4.0-liter V6 that delivers 265 horsepower and 285 lb-ft of twist. Because of Frontier availability across the whole planet, some markets will surely get a diesel option as well.
2020 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X
Nissan also plans to continue with rivaling high-performance models such as Chevy Colorado ZR2 or Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro. The 2020 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X will also arrive once again. This time, Nissan plans to beat its archest rivals. For that reason, we can expect further improvements in this version too. Frontier Pro-4X will offer a standard 4WD system.
Also, this high-performance pickup truck will gain new wheels, shock absorbers, and new suspension. Exterior will gain more aggressiveness and it will look sportier than ever before. This variant is also using a 4.0-liter V6. However, Pro-4X will produce more power, over 300 hp. However, we should wait for the exact specs and more official details.
Price and Release Date
The all-new 2020 Nissan Frontier will surely cost more than the current model. It makes perfect sense because Nissan delivered a complete redesign and further improvements. For that reason, new Frontier will start at $30,000. Company’s newest model will hit the markets in the last quarter of 2019.
