2018 Nissan Frontier is about to undergo its first great redesign after almost a decade of not changing at all in exterior design. The old Frontier had many not resolved issues, like poor cabin design and equipment as well as engine performance; so actually, nobody has been a real competitor to it. The new Frontier is much different now; it is designed to be similar to new Navara and with the changed engine. Being closer to European Navara, Frontier has a much modernized design, but there is a new suspension for smoother driving and stronger engine under the hood.
Even though we said that 2018 Nissan Frontier got redesigning to be similar to Navara, there are some differences from that model. As Navara is simple and not much muscular, the new Frontier has interesting changes on the front end to be more aggressive and massive. That is visible on the front end, which has massive mesh grille with chromatic grids, large LED front lights and wide plastic black air intake with protection on the bottom. There are also small rounded fog lights on the sides. The rear end, on the other hand, is flat with no many details, classic rear lights and bulged bumper.
The cabin in 2018 Nissan Frontier is completely changed and redesigned and now is much closer to European Navara. The design is maybe simple and not much attractive at first glance, but it has a combination of quality fabric with leather on the seats and chromatic details. In between two vertically positioned HVAC vents stands 6-inch touchscreen with commands and infotainment system controlling. However, some details are obviously taken from US Rogue or Trail, and that is mostly in plastic protection below the dashboard and in sharp, classic edges. If you are interested in the equipment the manufacturer put in the car, let say that it is the same as on other cars made in Nissan last few years.
It seems that 2018 Nissan Frontier got a new engine, instead of the old one. It will be a diesel engine, that is for sure, but if that includes 2.3-liter turbocharged, twin-turbocharged or four-in-line diesel we are not sure yet. In order to be closer to Ford’s trucks, it will have at least 200 horsepower of strength and 400 pound-feet of torque. It could be built-in also 3.5-liter V6 petrol engine. Every model should be paired with six or seven-speed automatic transmission.
