The 2020 Nissan Frontier will finally suffer a complete redesign for the first time since 2004. This mid-size pickup truck will get a much-needed redesign and it will look stunning. The interior is more similar to the sedan models than the actual pickup. The performance will be better as well and the exterior will come in two different body styles. Moreover, there will be two available engines and two transmission choices.
This practical pickup truck is the Nissan’s best-selling pickup that manages to outsold the Titan model. With the competitors such as Ford Ranger, Chevy Colorado and Honda Ridgeline, Nissan is bringing plenty of improvements to its Frontier model or also called Navara in some countries.
2020 Nissan Frontier exterior design and platform
The upcoming 2020 Nissan Frontier will look rugged like always before. However, the newest model will look nowhere near its predecessor. For the start, a new platform is in the offer. Instead of opting for the platform from Navara truck, Nissan is eager to build a new and unique Frontier platform. The production of this platform is taking a production in the Nissan’s factory in Mississippi.
The aggressiveness and mean stance are what everyone is expecting. The front end will gain a fresh look with more modern headlights and the front grille. To the side, 2020 Frontier still rides on 16-inch alloy wheels that are now looking much better. A famous Pro 4x model will be in the offer as well, but we don’t have precise information right now.
2020 Nissan Frontier interior is very modern
The forthcoming 2020 Nissan Frontier offers a very modern interior that is more car-like. It comes as a surprise to see such a modern and comfortable interior in the truck segment. The cabin is both functional and practical, the layout is brilliant and the room inside the cabin is great. Additionally, Frontier comes with the King Cab and Crew Cab configurations. Crew Cab models will get a rear bench for three passengers and the legroom is much better.
The seats are wrapped in cloth materials, but the leather seats are optional. Cargo room is huge, and with the rear seats folded flat, cargo area expands even more. Unfortunately, we are still waiting for Nissan to provide the exact interior specs.
2020 Nissan Frontier engine
The new V6 powertrain could be in the offer and it is the same engine that is used by Titan models. With that in mind, this unit will deliver up to 300 horses and 7-speed automatic transmission is available with this four-cylinder unit. The 2.5-liter will remain the base unit that can generate 155 HP and 175 lb-ft of torque. Both 5-speed manual and automatic gearbox are in the offer.
A 4.0-liter V6 is another optional powertrain and it returns 265 HP and 285 lb-ft of torque.
Transmission and towing capacity
A 6-speed automatic transmission is available and the newest 2020 Nissan Frontier can tow up to 6500 pounds with the optional V6. The diesel engine is unlikely at this moment.
2020 Nissan Frontier price and release date
The 2020 Nissan Frontier will cost slightly over $20,000. Choose a Crew Cab model with the optional V6 and you’ll end up paying over $30,000. This pickup truck will most likely arrive in the last quarter of 2019.
