The Frontier is about to finally about to receive a complete overhaul. The current generation has been around for almost 15 years, which is too long by any standards. Therefore, it is about time to see some changes in this model, which still makes pretty decent sales numbers, mainly because of a pretty affordable price. However, from a brand like Nissan, we definitely expect to see something much better, something that can take on rivals like Ford Ranger and Jeep Gladiator. The new generation will come with a lot of novelties. Expectations are pretty big, especially from the hi-performance 2021 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X model, which should be a pretty capable off-road machine. We expect to see it sometime in the next year.
2021 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X Redesign
The full range of Frontier models will receive a completely new design and expectations from a new model are big. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind the platform. According to the latest reports, the new model will stick to a familiar F-Alpha platform, though with significant updates. Practically, we expect to see the same mechanics as in the internationally-offered Navara, which has been around for a couple of years.
The 2021 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X will come with a couple of exclusive features, particularly in terms of off-road upgrades. Count on tuned suspension, off-road tires, skid plate and various other off-road aids. Also, a couple of distinctive visual details that will accentuate the truck’s capable nature are expected as well. Speaking of the styling in general, a lot of inspiration will be taken from Navara.
Still, keep in mind that this truck is about to receive a facelift in the near future, so same novelties should be applied on both models.
Like for the standard model, the interior design is a complete mystery. Of course, we expect to see a much more refined cabin compared to the current model. However, it is still unclear whether the new model will feature the same cabin as Navara or not. Most likely, it will be similar, but with a little bit higher quality, particularly in terms of finer materials. Also, we count on a couple of exclusive details on 2021 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X, such as sports seats, unique trim and similar things.
Finally, this model should feature a little bit longer list of standard features compared to base versions. We presume that things like leather-wrapped steering wheel, automatic headlights, heated and ventilated seats and Fender audio system will be on the list of standard features.
2021 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X Engine
Big changes are expected under the hood. Latest reports are suggesting that the current 4.0-liter V6 will be replaced with a new 3.0-liter turbo V6, with a max output of around 300 horsepower. Besides more power, this engine will provide much better fuel economy. Some reports suggest we could see a slight tuning for the 2021 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X. Still, don’t expect to see the engine’s version with full 400 horsepower.
Another important novelty is the transmission. All Frontier models will get a new 7-speed automatic transmission. This particular model will come with a 7-speed manual gearbox, while the aforementioned automatic should be available as well.
Besides this efficient V6, the next generation of this truck should also come with some more basic, four-cylinder engine in the offer. The current 2.5-liter unit may be modified, though some reports even suggest a turbo-four version. More details should be known soon.
2021 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X Release Date and Price
We expect that the 2021 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X will arrive along with other versions of the new truck. That would probably mean sometime in the second half of the next year. When it comes to the price, once Nissan announces price tags for base models, we will be able to make some predictions about this off-road performer.
