Nissan Frontier is one of the most popular Nissan pick-up trucks. It is sold under few different names around the world. While in North American it is known as Nissan frontier, in Asian countries it is sold under the Nissan Navarra label and in Europe as Nissan NP300. We are finally getting some details about the 2015 Nissan Frontier that were not known until now.
This model is built in different Nissan facilities around the world, including: Brazil, China, South Africa and United States. Not long time ago, Nissan launched a new assembly plant in Thailand in which it invested more than 350 million dollars. This facility is meant to produce Nissan Navarra exclusively, plus some minor number of other Nissan vehicles. Nissan Frontier was launched in 1997, and since then it went through 4 generations. Model that’s been in production today is from D23 Series.
The Nissan Frontier is famous for its exterior styling. It is one of the fanciest looking pick-up trucks that can be found on American market. In last few model years this car didn’t receive too many changes of its exterior, probably because its exterior look is seen as one of the most successful design solutions for this type of vehicle. For the 2014th version biggest change was that it came with 16 inch alloy wheels, and that was it. We don’t think that 2015 Nissan Frontier model will have too many changes either.
2015 Nissan Frontier Changes
Unlike classy exterior design, interior design of Nissan Frontier really lacks well designed pieces and quality materials. There was too much hard plastic in last year’s model, and we think that Nissan needs to change Frontier’s interior if they want their model to be competitive to GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Colorado which are two biggest rivals of Frontier and which came with well-designed interiors in last few model years.
We expect the same performance solutions that came with 2014 Nissan Frontier. That means buyers will choose between 2,5 liter four cylinder engine that can deliver 152 horsepower and powerful 4,0 litre V6 which will be able to deliver 261 horsepower. Both engines will come with 6 speed manual transmission. Best fuel economy is achieved with lower displacement engine that can return 19/23 mpg in city/highway drive conditions.
Price Of 2015 Nissan Frontier
One of the biggest positive features of Nissan Frontier pick-up truck is its affordable price. 2014 Nissan Frontier could be bought for $18,000 and we think that price of the 2015 is not going to be lot different. Minor price hikes are possible, but we think that the price of 2015 Nissan Frontier is not going to be bigger than $18,500. Few hundred dollars more is nothing special but it would be nice to see further improvements to this car.
At this point we still do not have any details about launch date and we can say that the release date of new 2015 Nissan Frontier is still unknown. After almost all the most important information’s about new version were delivered in the previous few months we are pretty sure that it will be officially presented pretty soon while the sales should start even before the end of this year.
