Riding on its second generation, Nissan Frontier is present since 2004. While this pickup truck offers a charming exterior, the interior and the powertrain feels old. However, the 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x is coming soon to the markets.
The newest model is an off-road version that offers a four-wheel drive system, a heavy-duty suspension, and an electronic locking rear differential. 16-inch wheels are wrapped in all-season tires, shock absorbers and skid plates are standard, and basically, everything about this model is turned toward off-roading. The 2019 Frontier Pro-4x will face some tough competitors such as Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and Chevy Colorado ZR2.
2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x exterior design
Only one look is enough to realize that the 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x is a perfect off-roader capable to beat all sort of tough terrains. The bed is shorter and wheelbase is longer which gives this truck an established stance. 16-inch alloy wheels are looking aggressive and are wrapped in all-season tires. The front grille is body-colored, just like the mirrors, door handles, bumpers and fog lamps.
A Metallic Blue exterior paint is the most popular choice among the customers and we must say that it looks stunning. The roof rack is still optional and recommendable as it covers the entire cabin and it also provides more than ample storage. Both functionality and practicality are raised to another level, the truck looks more stylish than before and some features such as bumpers and fog lights are enlarged.
2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x interior offers more chrome accents
The upcoming 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x offers a very modern and comfortable cabin. Unlike the base model, the Pro-4x version offers more standard and safety features. The seats, steering wheel, and the shift knob are wrapped in leather with white contrast stitching. The gauge cluster adds more chrome accents while the keyless entry, cruise control, and blind-spot monitoring are the latest additions. The cabin layout is perfect, from the seats to the smartly placed controls.
For a midsize truck, the headroom and legroom are ample. Japanese carmaker did a great job when it comes to maximizing the cabin space. A Nissan Connect, SiriusXM, navigation, Bluetooth and 5.8-inch touchscreen are all included as standard. Moreover, front bucket seats are available and are offering a heating and cooling options. Just like the roof rack, a moonroof is available as a part of the optional features.
2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x engine, transmission
The all-new 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x comes with a popular 4.0-liter V6 that is also under the hood of the current one model. This unit is capable of producing up to 261 HP and 281 lb-ft of torque. Moreover, this powertrain is specifically designed for the truck models where the torque comes to a lot earlier which is a great thing when it comes to towing and hauling.
The 5-speed automatic transmission is in the offer and a four-wheel drive is standard. However, as for the acceleration, we expect better numbers than in the previous model. The predecessor with this same engine has the ability to go from 0 to 60 mph in 7,3 sec. However, we expect better numbers in the new one.
Towing and fuel economy
The newest model 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x comes standard with Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist. Those features are perfect for steep terrain and will stop the truck from rolling backward. Tow rating of 6,500 which is a respectable number for a midsize truck segment. The fuel economy is a 15 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway.
2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x price, release date and rivals
While the base Frontier pickup truck costs $18,000, the 2019 Nissan Frontier Pro-4x starts at $33,000. The price could go even higher, so be careful when loading optional features as the price could jump to over $40,000.
Nissan’s latest midsize pickup truck will hit the dealerships in the last quarter of 2018. As we already said at the beginning this model will compete with models such as Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro and Chevy Colorado ZR2.
