Fans of the Nissan Frontier can rejoice, as the manufacturer has just announced a much-anticipated reboot of the popular truck. Last updated when Bush was still president, the new Frontier is hoping to reclaim its place among the top cars in the midsize pickup truck industry.
What to Expect
Nissan confirmed that the Frontier will still be made at the current plant in Canton, Mississippi. This is also where Nissan manufactures its Titan truck as well as several other models, meaning you’ll continue to receive the same quality vehicle you’ve driven in the past.
Currently, the Frontier is one of the lowest-priced pickups on the market, with an MSRP that starts below $20,000. However, this could be because it hasn’t been updated since 2005. With the new changes, you might have to pay a bit more for the new model, but it should absolutely be worth it.
Comparison to the Navara
As of now, there are scant details on exactly what the new Frontier will look like. However, experts are speculating that it might be modeled after the existing Nissan Navara, a midsize pickup that’s sold in places like Mexico, Europe, and South America. The Navara has recently been rebranded at the Renault Alaskan and features a QR25DE 2.5-liter inline-four engine as well as three various diesel engines.
Because the Navara is the basis for the Mercedes-Benz X-Class, modeling the new Frontier off of this vehicle would also mark the X-Class’s debut in the United States.
