It is mention worthy though here in this context that this model of Nissan Frontier has been introduced a long way back in the year 2005. Although much information hasn’t yet been known regarding the car. However, there are certainly some assumptions that can be made like the car is going to continue with its current platform.
The exterior design of the car is highly likely to be getting some serious influence by that of its European sibling. While the dimensions are most likely to be the same, the pick-up truck would most probably feature more dynamic body-lines. The newest model will get standard 16-inch wheels or optional 18-inch wheels.
