The Nissan Frontier has become an old lady in the game. But it still moves gracefully like the queen of England. The minds at Nissan are introducing a new version because it is easy to be left behind. Especially when you're competing against rivals like the new Ford Ranger, Chevy Colorado and the Toyota Tacoma. In fact, there are rumors that 2019 might see Jeep introducing a new Wrangler. The Frontier belongs to Nissan's next generation, and it is here to give its competitors an a** whooping to remember. The Nissan Navara highly inspires the new Frontier. The Navara will get a mid-cycle refresh. And because of this, we believe that all its new stuff will also come with the new Frontier.
Does it offer any upgrades?
"I've gotta a feeling, that tonight's gonna be a good night, that tonight's gonna be a good night....." The new Frontier reminds me of that song by Black Eyed Peas. It will come with numerous upgrades that give me the feeling that we are in for a real treat. The new platform will feature many upgrades especially in the department of driving dynamics. It offers better engineering, improved driving experience and plenty of comfort. It has a great towing capacity and better payload numbers.
What powers it?
The base trim provides around 150 horses from its 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine; it is even possible that the horsepower can even reach 170. We also expect the 260 horsepower V6 to continue with its reign. It will deliver 280 pound-feet of torque has a 4.0-liter displacement. We expect a newer 6-speed gearbox to replace the outdated 5-speed automatic. It offers amazing durability and reliability which compensate for the under per fuel economy.
How much does it cost and when will it hit the market?
We expect the 2019 Nissan Frontier cost around 25,000 dollars. If you're wondering when you can put your hands on this vehicle, then be on the lookout this fall. The Nissan plant in Canton, Mississippi is where the 2019 Nissan Frontier is being built.
Which styling does it offer?
The next generation Frontier will come with a beautiful styling that will make it look like a small sister of the Navara. However, it will also bring other different features. We're not sure how the Frontier will look like, but we predict numerous novelties at the front and an intact base contour.
What about the interior?
We expect that the interior of this vehicle will come with the same cabin as that of the internationally-offered Navara. Still, we should see the trim levels organization become a little bit different.
