Some months ago, the 2021 Nissan Frontier pickup was heavily camouflaged but now it has been caught in its production state. This replacement was long overdue as the current model debuted in 2004 while its rivals have been replaced long ago. Its styling cues are taken from the larger Titan pickup. These photos are legit and from a reliable source.
From the looks, we can see that the Frontier is truly a modern truck as the headlights are now LEDs. The front bumper has been totally redesigned as it features a tonneau cover and a larger grille. Another model was shown which seems to be offroad oriented as it features a raised suspension, blacked-out grille, bull bar, and plastic body kit. This replaces the chrome details found in the regular model. There’s also prominent Frontier badging stamped above the front grille.
The engine option will be carried over from the current 2020 model that was updated. So expect the same 3.8-litre V6 that outputs 310hp and 281 lb-ft of torque, paired with a new 9-speed automatic. In the European market, this model will just be 2021 facelifted Navarra. It has been on sale for 5 years now and that region will have a 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine. As common with all current Nissan model, the 2021 Frontier will come equipped Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 suite of driver assists.
