New 2016 Nissan Frontier is coming to the market with high anticipation. With its modern looks and great specs, this should be another success for Nissan.
2016 NISSAN FRONTIER CHANGES AND IMPROVEMENTS
We should expect to see some nice updates, both on the inside and on the outside of the new Frontier. Although Nissan will not introduce any major changes, the overall look of the new model will definitely be refreshed and modern. The front of the vehicle will feature Frontier’s signature three-piece grille. Elongated headlights and taillights will be equipped with LED technology. With recognizable grill, front bumper and curved hood, body design will be more aggressive and masculine. There will be two body shapes available: crew cab and extended cab. Nissan will also offer five trims: S, SV, Desert Runner, Pro-4X and SL. Inside the cabin we can expect more changes as well as more space. Seats are made of high quality materials and provide great comfort. Some of the features that will be available on the new 2016 Nissan Frontier include USB port, Bluetooth, 6 inch monitor and many more.
ENGINE AND PERFORMANCE
We will also witness some great changes under the hood of the new pickup. We could expect that the new 2016 Nissan Frontier will be powered by Cummins diesel engine. This will be 2.8 liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that will be able to generate 200 horsepower and up to 350 lb-ft of torque. Fuel consumption will be at impressive 21.4 miles per gallon. This will be a huge improvement compared to the 18 miles per gallon for the current model that is powered with V6 engine. The engine on the new Nissan Frontier will be mated with 8 speed automatic transmission system. Next to the powerful and highly efficient Cummins diesel engine, Nissan will also offer one gasoline option for their new truck.
RELEASE DATE AND EXPECTED PRICE
The release date of the new 2016 Nissan Frontier is still unknown, but if the rumors are true, it should be on the market in the second half of 2015. The price should not be far from the price of the current model. It is expected to start at around $20,000, which will justify the high anticipation of this new truck.
