Next-Gen Nissan Frontier Coming in 2020, Will Ride on Updated Version of Same Platform: Report

The all-new Nissan Frontier will reportedly arrive a little earlier than expected and will launch in 2020 as a 2021 model, Auto News reports.

Those who know their Nissan truck history will recall the days when the Japanese automaker was called Datsun, which sold what became an immensely popular small pickup in America.

On a visual front, an unnamed source with knowledge on the matter asserts that the new Frontier will look modern while still maintaining typical pickup looks.

Buttigieg takes swipe at Trump, Pence
Democrats and the LGBT community are taking notice of Buttigieg who is gaining ground as a popular candidate. Now, as vice president, he poses one of the greatest threats to equality in the history of our movement.

This report interestingly suggests that the next Frontier, while "looking futuristic" and being something "a truck guy will want", the Frontier won't be based on the a new version of the global platform that underpins Navara. "It makes more sense for Nissan to re-engineer the existing Frontier platform than spend significant money and resources to up-size the Navara platform and develop a new North American truck from it".

Nissan will update its aging Frontier to compete with new midsize truck offerings from Ford and Jeep, but won't change the platform it rides on, Automotive News reports. This means it will use old school leaf springs at the rear rather than the coil springs of the Navara. In fact, Nissan sold 79,646 units across the United States a year ago. It's possible the new Frontier will receive a revised VQ35 3.5L V-6 that features direct injection-the current Pathfinder crossover uses a 284hp direct-injected VQ35 engine. The Frontier, unlike most other pickups today, is also affordable.
