We expect new 2018 Nissan Frontier to be released later this year. This is a third generation of mid-size pick-up trucks that will bring along certain improvements in terms of exterior and interior design, power train, fuel efficiency etc. New colors Sunset Orange, Gun Metallic and Magnetic Black will be available, instead of Metallic Blue, Night Armor and Super Black. Customers will also be offered with five trim levels (S, SV, SL, Desert Runner and PRO-4X), two cabin types (the King Cab and the Crew Cab) and two drivetrain options (rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive). Reduced body weight was accomplished by using aluminum, while strong steel maintained its power and performances.
Back in 1997 first Frontier was introduced and primarily targeted North American market, but soon it conquered hearts of customers worldwide. It is interesting to say that you can find Frontier also named as Navara or NP300.
Exterior and Interior
Exterior of new 2018 Nissan Frontier suffered some facelift procedures that resulted in improved and smoother exterior design. Renewed front fascia has enlarged, U-shaped grille and elongated headlights along with the LED daytime running lights. There are also fog lights on the front. Redesigned bumper and plenty of elegant chrome accents make this car even more attractive. On the rear fascia we can find reshaped trapezoidal tail lights and massive bumper. The body of Nissan Frontier will be a little bit lower than previous ones. It was also announced that cargo area of 2018 Nissan Frontier will be 35 cubic feet larger comparing to previous models. Massive wheels enables this truck all kinds of off-road adventures.
Unlike the exterior, interior of 2018 Nissan Frontier didn’t suffer substantial changes. To enable easy access to cabin, a metal step is placed. Although not having official information about interior design of Nissan Frontier, we expect nothing less than high quality materials and high level of comfort and safety. Pleasant ride will be assured with heated front seats. As of technology features, there will be a 6-inch display, USB port, Bluetooth and satellite radio, to name some of the few.
It is expected for 2018 Nissan Frontier to come with three engine options. One of them will be 2.8 l inline-four capable for 200 hp. There will also be a 152-horsepower 2.5 l V6 and a 261-horsepower 4.0 l V6 able to pump out 281 lb-ft of torque. According some rumors, there will also be available a 200 hp 2.8-liter Cummins diesel engine with capacity to produce 350 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy rates so far haven’t been released, but we expect nothing less than improvements.
