The outdated mid-size truck will finally get a completely new version, 2019 Nissan Frontier. The famous nameplate has been around for years.
The original model came more than two decades ago. However, the current version has been stuck for more than 12 years. Unlike the international version, this one didn’t receive a redesign a few years ago. So, it is clear that the new version is eagerly awaited.
The new model is expected to come by the end of the year with numerous novelties. Of course, expect all those things like new styling, new platform, engines etc. The new version will be heavily based on the current-generation Navara, which has been around for three or four years. Considering that this model is about to receive a mid-cycle refresh, expect all those novelties to be applied to the new-generation Frontier as well.
2019 Nissan Frontier redesign
Expect a lot of new things from the 2019 Nissan Frontier. Considering that the current model is present for more than 12 years, this redesign will be a huge step ahead. Of course, the first thing that always comes to our minds is new styling, but let’s start with the new platform. It will bring plenty of improvements, especially when it comes to driving dynamics. The new model will be far better engineered, which in practice means better handling, comfort, and overall driving experience.
Finally, capabilities will be on the higher level as well, so expect better payload numbers, towing capacity and other improvements. There is a new styling to come. Many changes will come, both outside and inside. The 2019 Nissan Frontier will look pretty much like Navara, but with numerous additional details.
2019 Nissan Frontier styling and interior design
Speaking of the outside look, expect a huge step forward. The current model looks pretty outdated, which is normal since it rides for so many years. On the other side, the new 2019 Nissan Frontier will get a new look, from the current Navara. Still, considering that Navara is going to get a facelift soon, we are pretty sure that the new 2019 Nissan Frontier will pick up all those novelties. Still, it is hard to predict how it’ll look like exactly. We presume that the base contour will remain the same, but expect many novelties, especially at the front.
On the other side, the interior of Navara shouldn’t suffer that much, so new Frontier will probably feature the same cabin layout as the current version of the internationally-offered mid-size truck. Still, we could see a little bit different trim level organization.
2019 Nissan Frontier engines
When it comes to powertrain, the 2019 Nissan Frontier will keep with the same engines, most likely. There are two gasoline units in the offer.
The base 2.5-liter four-cylinder unit delivers around 150 horses. Still, we could see some tunings for this occasion, which means higher output, probably around 170 horsepower.
On the other side, a reliable V6 unit will probably continue in the same way. This engine has a displacement of 4.0-liter. It offers plenty of power, around 260 horses and 280 pound-feet of torque. Still, it features not so amazing fuel economy but compensates with amazing reliability and durability. An old 5-speed automatic will get a replacement for sure, probably in a newer 6-speed gearbox.
Finally, don’t be surprised if you see some diesel unit in the offer. The current Navara comes with plenty of oil-burners in the offer.
2019 Nissan Frontier release date and price
The 2019 Nissan Frontier should hit the market this fall. We won’t make some more precise predictions, but the new model will probably go around 25.000 dollars.
