The Nissan Frontier is a midsize pickup known for offering durability, reliability, and strength that can compete with American-made trucks. The newest model is set to arrive later this year and Nissan has been pretty forthcoming with the specs and features. Here at Nissan of Durango, we have plenty of juicy details about the 2017 Nissan Frontier!
For the moment, the 2017 Nissan Frontier will be available at the same price as the 2016 model, starting at $18,290. There’s no word as to whether the interior will be entirely redesigned but if the exterior receives one, it’s likely the interior will as well.
The big news surrounding the new Nissan Frontier is the addition of diesel engines, including a Cummins engine. With demand for diesel engines in midsize trucks increasing, a diesel Frontier couldn’t come at a better time. While Nissan hasn’t revealed any specifics, enthusiasts have speculated far and wide.
The Desert Runner show truck packed a 2.8-liter Cummins diesel four-cylinder engine that produces around 200 hp. While that may not seem like much, keep in mind that diesel engines provide high torque at low rpm, in this case, around 350 lb-ft of torque. Mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, the new engine is likely to provide better fuel economy than the 4.0-liter V6 engine found in the 2016 model.
We can’t wait for the 2017 Nissan Frontier to come to Nissan of Durango and the Durango, CO area. If you want to see a Frontier now, then take a look at our 2016 Nissan Frontier models.
