No big changes are planned for 2018 Nissan Frontier, at the moment. But, since current generation hasn’t suffered redesign for a long time, we hope that engineers are going to prepare a surprise for all fans of this vehicle and trucks in generally. Otherwise, we won’t see many different 2018 Frontier from its predecessors. Last model was too much the same as 2004 year model, and company needs to realize that innovations are needed, or this pickup is not going to be competent on the market any more. There are many reasons of delay of this truck, one is new Navara, but that could mean we are also getting new Frontier.
2018 Nissan Frontier redesign
From multiple sources, we’ve heard that 2018 Nissan Frontier is having a redesign, and significant changes are prepared so far. Outside, we know that grille will be revisited, and headlights replaced with new. Bumper could be also new, but it doesn’t have to be true. Inside, different materials, more quality, will be used. Most of the cabin is going to be covered by leather. Power-adjusted driver seat, navigation, air-bags and climate are just few or the many features included in standard offer for 2018 Frontier. Space inside is boosting overall comfort impression.
2018 Nissan Frontier engine
New 2018 Nissan Frontier will be propelled probably with same engine used by recently launched Navara. It is 2.3-l four-cylinder engine with turbocharger. Engine can deliver 170 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. It could happen that new Frontier comes with old engines. First is 2.5-l 4-cylinder with less output of mentioned Navara’s unit. More power could come from 4.0-l V6 that can make more than 250 horses. Nevertheless, all these drivetrains need upgrades to keep the pace with competition. Engineers could make new, diesel variant for 2018 Frontier. It will be there to fulfill that goal. Fuel economy boost is also important task to be completed. These numbers couldn’t be predicted with tiny information we have at this moment.

The 2018 Nissan Frontier might be in deficit with some features or in power, but main advantage of this truck is its price. Starting under $20,000, it seems pretty attractive for buyers. Some higher trims packed with more features with valuation under $40,000.
