The mid-size truck segment is probably the most exciting class in the recent year. Well, these kinds of pickups still can’t match the popularity of some SUVs, but few arrivals are definitely waking up truckers. Few comebacks and new models caused existing companies to refresh their offer. The 2021 Nissan Frontier will launch the next-gen truck that will be versatile and capable to fight with Ford Ranger, Toyota Tacoma, Chevy Colorado…
First spy photos are unveiling a lot of changes. The redesign of the interior and exterior will draw the attention of the entire segment – fans, experts, and rivals. News say the upcoming 2021 Nissan Frontier will get a diesel or hybrid engine as a part of a redesign. However, these rumors are not precise. The Pro-4X is getting more advanced features, so it can match capabilities of Toyota’s TRD Pro models. The base Frontier will still be the cheapest model in the class and Nissan doesn’t plan to make it cost over $20,000.
Changes for 2021 [Spy Photos]
The redesign of the 2021 Nissan Frontier will introduce some radical cuts for the mid-size truck. Designers will have a lot of job before they finish the new truck. But, there is plenty of time before the first appearance. From spy photos, we can see the pickup is going to be slightly larger than before. News from the company is that Frontier could get a new platform. Well, even with less camo, we couldn’t say this until chiefs confirm these rumors.
One thing is sure – Nissan will update both its trucks, Frontier and Titan. The larger pickup could even get a panoramic moonroof. But, the main thing for both is to keep their practicality and versatility. Available with two kinds of engines, off-road package, premium trim levels, and many other options, we believe the new 2021 Nissan Frontier will deliver it.
2021 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X Off-Road Truck
One of the priorities for the next 2021 Nissan Frontier is to build a more capable off-road trim. That is the Pro-4X. We can’t say it is bad, but compared to Chevy Colorado ZR2 and Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro, it is easy to find out these are not the same league. However, the 2021 Frontier Pro-4X could get a completely new system, with unique shocks, suspension, and the extra gap between body and ground, to provide more space for off-road adventures.
Specs (Including 2021 Nissan Frontier Diesel)
Under the hood of the 2021 Frontier remains a huge V6 engine. A 4.0-l unit will be revisited, and the next edition of the truck will gain extra power. Some say it is going to be around 15%. Currently, this engine is good for 260 hp. With such boost, the truck will get around 300 horsepower.
The 2021 Nissan Frontier diesel is still a possibility. In our humble opinion, it is unlikely to happen. We would like to see this model competing the Chevy Colorado diesel and Jeep Wrangler diesel. Nissan will probably go after the hybrid unit. The future of the automotive industry is green, and the Japanese carmaker is already one of the leaders in this segment. By launching the 2021 Frontier hybrid truck, they would cement its place.
2021 Nissan Frontier USA Release Date
Every car, SUV, or truck wants to be part of the biggest auto show in the world. That is NAIAS. From the next season, the happening moves from January to summer. The new format will allow companies a lot of opportunities. For example, we can see new models showing their skills and performance. The arrival of the 2021 Nissan Frontier is big enough to win the ticket for such show. Especially if it launches a hybrid drivetrain.
