2017 Nissan Frontier Preview

2017 Nissan Frontier

The City Is The New Frontier

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.

Old West Gunfight in Durango, CO

Old West Gunfight

Belle Saloon by Scott Smith

Reliving the dramatics of the Wild West is something of a past time here in Colorado and it’s something the Diamond Belle Saloon does well. Depicting popular gunfights from the 1800s, the theatrical reenactments are something you won’t find anywhere else. Supported by the Strater Hotel, the Old West Gunfight is a ton of action packed into a short amount of time.

The theatrical gunfight takes place at the Diamond Belle Saloon and is historically accurate according to records. Mainly taking place in the 1800s, Old West gunfights typically involved at least two participants, the wanted man and the lawman.

Some parts of the gunfight also include one of the Saloon Belle girls as well. Interested in getting in on the action? Guests have the opportunity to play a role in the gunfight for a small fee.

Reenacted gunfights include those that actually happened, including the O.K. Corral shootout of 1881 that took place in Tombstone, Arizona.

The theatrical reenactments take place on August 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st from 7:00 to 7:20 p.m. Trust us when we tell you it’s something you have to see!

We here at Nissan of Durango, CO can’t wait to see the Old West Gunfight in person this year!
