After years of waiting, we are finally about to see a completely new version of this mid-size truck, which will come as 2019 Nissan Frontier. This capable machine has been around for more than two decades. Unfortunately, we have seen only two generations of this model. Unlike its global twin, Navara, the Frontier didn’t get the last redesign in 2014.
The current generation of the truck is present for a very long time, since 2005. Such time is a pretty long period, especially if we consider that the current situation in the segment, where numerous manufacturers are reviving their old legendary models, or even introducing completely new ones. So, this sudden redesign seems natural. Luckily for Nissan, the current Navara is present for about four years, so the basis of the 2019 Frontier is completely ready. Still, there are some tweaks to come, on both Navara and Frontier.
2019 Nissan Frontier Redesign
The old model will be retired finally. After years of service, we are finally about to see a truck with a completely new design. The new 2019 Nissan Frontier redesign means once again a tight relationship with Navara.
The truck version for the international market is present for since 2014, which seems much fresher compared to the outgoing model which dates from 2004. With the new architecture, 2019 Nissan Frontier will become far more competitive. More attractive design, less weight, better performances and much more refinement are just some of the novelties that will come with the new generation of the truck.
We can count on far better driving dynamics and better overall comfort as well. Still, the most notable thing form the most of people will be a completely new styling, which is about to follow Navara’s appearance, but also to add several new details.
2019 Nissan Frontier Specs
We can just imagine how significant change in styling will be after the redesign. The current version hasn’t been updated for years. On the other side, the 2019 Nissan Frontier specs will be very close to the current Navara. It is important to mention that Navara is also going to get some visual changes for the next year, so we can’t precisely say how the new Frontier is going to look like. Most likely, the update should bring changes at the front, where we are about to see changes on the front fascia, grille, bumper and similar areas.
The 2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel should also follow all these changes. Also, we should see some distinctive details too. After all, this is a truck for a specific market, so expect a little different compared to the international model.
How long is the bed of Nissan Frontier?
We expect to see new Frontier with the same bed dimensions as Navara. This means two-bed sizes in the offer. The short be will be around 59.5 inches, while the longer version will go around 75 inches.
2019 Nissan Frontier gets a new diesel engine from Mercedes
We are pretty certain that the 2019 Nissan Frontier will mirror the engine lineup of Navara. This means a wide range of engines, including several diesel units. In addition, we could see some gasoline V6 in the offer.
The current Navara uses a familiar 2.5-liter gasoline engine with around 150 horsepower. We should see some tuning, probably to 180 horses.
The current 4.0-liter V6 should continue without changes.
When it comes to diesel units, some of Renault’s units will definitely find a place under the hood of a new truck. Still, the most interesting will be to see a diesel engine from Mercedes-Benz.
The 2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel will feature a 3.0-liter V6 engine, which is good enough for about 255 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque.
How much can Nissan Frontier tow?
Depending on the engine, the 2019 Frontier will be less or more capable. While the base gasoline engine will have a pretty modest capacity, large V6 unit, as well as potential diesel versions will be far more capable. The latter one is expected to deal with 7500 pounds without bigger problems.
2019 Nissan Frontier release date and price
A more precise launch date is yet to come, but we expect to see 2019 Nissan Frontier release date in the fall. In order to be competitive, the new model will feature pretty attractive price, which will probably go around 25.000 dollars for the base model.
