What is known about the new generation of the Nissan Frontier pickup truck (NAVARA)?April 8, 2020
The next-generation Japanese mid-size truck will be lighter than its predecessor and will receive more efficient engines in terms of fuel consumption. The car will receive a modernized body. Presentation of new items is scheduled for 2021.
A couple of months ago, Nissan rolled out the 2020 Frontier. Despite the new engine and gearbox, it was almost the same truck that debuted back in 2005. The presentation of a completely new generation of Japanese legend is scheduled for 2021. It is already known that the car will receive a 3.8-liter V6 engine and a 9-speed automatic transmission.
Our colleagues from the foreign publication Autoblog were able to find out some preliminary details about a completely new version of the truck during an interview with a motor expert at Nissan. While the current version of the model can spend about 13.06 liters of fuel per 100 km in the city and 9.8 liters on the highway in its most efficient, in terms of fuel consumption, version, the truck of the 2021 model year will further improve these figures thanks to an updated and more aerodynamic body.
Nissan also promises that the new Frontier (aka NAVARA) will be lighter than today’s version of the truck, but nothing has been said in more detail. Reducing the total weight of the pickup will also contribute to reducing fuel consumption.
It was said that the next generation of the Japanese pickup will not be completely new, since some components and assemblies will still be transferred without any changes from the current version of the model. In October last year, it became known that the next-generation model will receive an updated six-speed mechanics.
There were rumors about keeping the “same base platform”, but with an updated chassis and electric architecture. It is said that the revised pickup style evokes “spirituality of adventure” (whatever that means), because the truck will have a “strong” design, the look of which will be significantly changed.
