The Frontier has been one of the most successful compact pickup trucks in the US in the last few years but it started to lose market share to some other new trucks which are more fuel efficient as well as cheaper than the Frontier. This is why Nissan decided that it is time for them to introduce in the US the 2016 Nissan Frontier as a new model of their successful pickup truck. While the Navara has already been released in a few markets around the World, only at the end of 2015 a new Nissan Frontier 2016 is going to be introduced in the US.
2016 Nissan Frontier redesign
On the exterior, the 2016 Nissan Frontier is going to look slightly different but not that much more different in order to keep the spirit of the car intact. The front fascia will get a slightly rounder design with a new pair of headlights and a new grille which will make the Frontier look a bit cleaner and also newer. This design is part of Nissan’s plan of improving all of their models by 2018. The back of the car on the other hand will remain similar to that of the current generation which is only normal for a pickup truck. Inside, the Nissan Frontier 2016 is going to be one of the better equipped models in its class with things such as automatic air conditioning, a premium audio system and even electric front seats and windows as standard.
Nissan Frontier 2016 diesel
Engine wise, the Nissan Frontier 2016 is going to drop both: the 4.0-liter V6 as well as the older 2.5-liter diesel in the favor of a more fuel efficient and also more powerful 2.3-liter turbocharged diesel. This is going to make up to 190 horsepower and as much as 320 lb-ft of torque, being just as powerful as some other full size trucks. The petrol offering is unknown at this time but it might either be a new 4 liter unit or a smaller but equally powerful turbocharged V6. The older transmission is going to be replaced with a new all wheel drive system which will be available either with a 6 speed manual gearbox or a much smoother 7 speed automatic one. Both of them will offer similar fuel consumption but the automatic is better suited for people who enjoy comfort while driving.
2016 Nissan Frontier release date and price
The new 2016 Frontier will get a new chassis, new engines as well as a new and fresher look than before which will get all those customers back for sure. The price for this new Nissan pickup truck will start at roughly $22,000 for a rear wheel drive model with nothing on it but the basic commodities. The more expensive Nissan Frontier 2016 will get up to $35,000 and they will include equipment similar to a luxury family car. The 2016 Nissan Frontier release date will probably be set for end of this year.
