2021 Nissan Frontier is one of those models that waited for a change of more than one decade. Since models in class have already undergone changes and improvements, we waited to see how Frontier will follow those changes in past years. That, unfortunately, did not happen since the first model came out in 2005.
Now is time to see change, and it will be a major one, which is obvious after we saw the first photos of the model on test driving. There are still few details that could be made differently, but let us say that this is still far more than we even expected this time.
- The model is made to follow high market demands for the class.
- There are new engines under the hood.
- There are no changes in the design of the truck.
- The cabin has not been significantly changed for a long time.
Unfortunately, the only difference that we will see in new 2021 Nissan Frontier is the new shape of the trunk and perhaps better sculpted front end. When it comes to the overall look, the manufacturer has not made anything to become closer to the Ford Ranger or modernly designed model like Chevrolet Colorado.
Even the platform will be the same F-Alpha truck platform that this manufacturer has used in these models for a long time. However, this is obviously the most favorable option for the manufacturer that will affect the price.
The cabin has also not been changed for a long time, and in 2021 Nissan Frontier will not be changed again. We expect more entertainment devices and upgraded safety system.
Maybe the design of 2021 Nissan Frontier will not be changed as much as we expected, but the new engine options should correct the fault made with this decision about the design. The current engine that this model had is a 4.0-liter petrol unit with 261 horsepower, paired with the automatic transmission.
The new engine, though, should be smaller, but stronger, a 3.0-liter V6 capable of producing even 300 horsepower of strength. The transmission is also changed in order to be more effective and this time it will be a seven-speed automatic one. It is an engine strong enough to compete with the engines that we used to see in models like Toyota Tacoma or RAM 1500.
2021 Nissan Frontier Release Date and Price
One of the most important facts, when 2021 Nissan Frontier is about, is that it will be slightly upgraded, but mostly in term of the engine strength and type.
The design will be almost the same as before, meaning that it will be only slightly closer to the other models in the class. However, the price of only $20,000 for the base model that increases to the $35,000 promises good selling season for all trim versions that will be offered later. Releasing date is not known so far.
