2020 Nissan Frontier comes as a fully redesigned model for the next year. That is the big announcement from the manufacturer, but also an expected change for the model, so long on the market in same shape and engine. There are numerous changes that are expected, from the design of the car to the new engine under the hood.

2020 Nissan Frontier side

When it comes to the basic design of 2020 Nissan Frontier, few things are clear. The new Frontier will most likely look like the overseas Navara pickup version. Even though the last year model had great features, the manufacturer obviously has decided to make this model closer to the best-sold versions of the trucks. That will surely include things like the soft rounded front end with large LED front lights and gridded chromatic grille shaped in the letter V. however, the front end should be curved and improved with wide air intake and fog lights. The rear end is also very gentle and modern, made to be with soft edges and rounded, so the main model should not be much different from the other models in class.

Interior – Change in size?

The cabin in 2020 Nissan Frontier should be closer to the cabins in class, with improved technology and infotainment system. Even though we are not sure if the new Frontier will change its size, it is for sure that the manufacturer will improve the comfort and enjoyment in the new car. Since the Navara has an attractive wide dashboard shaped in the letter V, we are sure that something similar will be found in the new Frontier, too.

Will Engine have some changes?

The engine in 2020 Nissan Frontier will be the main change that this model will undergo. According to information we have, the manufacturer will use 2.8-liter Cummins turbodiesel engine in this version. This model produces 200 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. The reason why we believe in this option is a new diesel engine that is used in other recently redesigned models, like Titan XD. On that way, Frontier is closer to main competitors like Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon.

However, it is expected that the manufacturer will do not release it before fall 2019. The sale date starts after that. As for the releasing date, the price is not known yet, so we should be prepared for the number higher than $20,000. That was the base price for the last year model.
