It looks like we are finally about to see some changes on this truck, as the 2020 Nissan Frontier redesign has been rumored. According to the latest reports, the company will finally redesign a truck, which hasn’t been redesigned for almost 15 years. Therefore, you can bet on significant changes in all aspects.
The new model is about to ride on a new platform, to feature a completely new styling and to come with plenty of other novelties, improved in pretty much every aspect. Therefore, we won’t be surprised if the new model arrives earlier than usual.
- Completely redesigned
- More refined and more efficient
- Possible diesel option
- Tough competition
- Potentially more expensive than rivals
Of course, the most notable aspect of this redesign will be exterior design. The 2020 Nissan Frontier is about to come with a completely new styling. The current one definitely looks outdated, which isn’t surprising at all, considering the model’s age. The new styling will be inspired by the brand’s newest design language.
More precisely, the new Frontier should have a lot in common with the Navara, which is a truck that Nissan offers internationally. Same goes for the mechanics. The 2020 Nissan Frontier will ride on the same platform share most of its parts with the more familiar sibling. Of course, count on a variety of body styles, different bed dimensions etc.
Another aspect that is about to come with significant changes in the cabin. The current one definitely looks aged. The dashboard layout is outdated, not to mention that younger competitors, like Chevy Colorado or Toyota Tacoma feature much more refined materials and more functional cabins.
The new 2020 Nissan Frontier will come with a cabin that features more style, better materials and also a lot of new features. This particularly refers to tech goodies. So, count on latest infotainment system, connectivity features and similar things.
This redesign will bring changes under the hood as well. So, be sure that the 2020 Nissan Frontier will be far more efficient than the current model. Most likely, base models will continue with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine. However, this engine will undergo significant updates.
So, count on more power, better fuel economy and improved overall efficiency. On the other side, a large 4.0-liter V6 will probably be replaced with something smaller and more efficient, probably with a more refined 3.5-liter V6 unit. Finally, some reports suggest a diesel version in the offer as well.
2020 Nissan Frontier Release Date and Price
Considering the redesign, the 2020 Nissan Frontier should arrive earlier than usual. Most likely, this will happen sometime in the third quarter of the year. When it comes to the price, the new model will definitely cost more than the current, outdated version. Count that the starting price will be somewhere between $22,000 and $25,000.
