There’s no question that the current Nissan Frontier generation is completely outdated. With a design of more than 10 years, along with the old engines, the Frontier is no longer attractive to most buyers, even the ones who love pickups.
Just like the Navarra is about to suffer a major upgrade in 2017, we are expecting that Nissan releases the new 2018 Nissan Frontier with severe updates. We are expecting to see a completely new design, both on the exterior as well as on the interior, and a complete change on the engines.
The new 2018 Nissan Frontier needs to deal with a high competition and it really needs to be released as soon as possible. So, if you used to be a fan of the Frontier, make sure to check all that is expected this pickup to have.
Make sure to check out the car releases in 2018.
2018 Nissan Frontier Release Date
Nissan hasn’t made any official comment regarding the release date of the new 2018 Nissan Frontier. However, we are anticipating that it should be presented in the middle of 2017. However, it should only be put on sale at the beginning of 2018.
2018 Nissan Frontier Price
Just like with the release date, there’s no mention of the price from Nissan. According to some rumors, you might expect to buy the new 2018 Nissan Frontier at a starting price around $20,000.
2018 Nissan Frontier Redesign and Changes
Just like the NP300 Navara suffered a major redesign and was debuted in 2015, the 2018 Nissan Frontier should go into the same path as well as the design should be pretty similar.
We are expecting to see some smoother lines, as well as a V-shaped radiator grille, just like all the most recent Nissan vehicles, are featuring. With new headlines and a redesigned bumper that will include the fog lights, the new 2018 Nissan Frontier will look amazing.
In what concerns the rear of the 2018 Nissan Frontier, you can expect it to be like the Navara as well.
The 2018 Nissan Frontier should include different models: the 2018 Nissan Frontier crew can and the 2018 Nissan Frontier double cab. We believe that the single cab will disappear.

2018 Nissan Frontier Specs
One of the worst things about the current generation of the Nissan Frontier is the engine. It’s completely outdated making it not efficient and not able to provide the performance most drivers are looking for.
Therefore, we are expecting big changes under the hood. The current generation uses a 2.5-litter four-cylinder engine or a 4-liter V6 engine. Despite we don’t know for sure, we are expecting to see the 2018 Nissan Frontier base model using either a 2.5-liter 4-tube engine or a 4.-liter V6 engine. Even with these engines, Nissan will need to make a lot of tweaks so that the pickup is able to deliver much more power, satisfy the pollutants criteria, and to provide a better fuel economy and efficiency.
In what concerns the diesel engine, there are still some doubts whether Nissan is about to release it or not. The fact is that back in 2014, there was a Frontier prototype that used the turbocharged 4-cylinder diesel engine made by Cummins. We will need to wait a little longer to be sure on what decision they will make.
The 2018 Nissan Frontier transmission is going to be provided by a seven-speed automatic gearbox or by a six-speed handbook gearbox.
2018 Nissan Frontier Interior
There’s no question that the interior of the Nissan Frontier needs to change. It needs to provide comfort and luxury at the same time.
In our opinion, the 2018 Nissan Frontier interior will have a better trim quality than the Navara and we also expect to see some of the new trends adopted on more advanced models.
Overall, the 2018 Nissan Frontier will feature high-quality materials and a high-level of safety. We are expecting to see a powerful dashboard, greater catches, and chunkier handles.
In what concerns with the seats, the rear ones will most probably be heated and will have a lot more space and provide more comfort to the passengers.
In terms of technology, you should expect to see the latest advancements included like satellite stereo, Universal serial USB dock, among many others.
In terms of safety features, the 2018 Nissan Frontier should include a level screen camera, enhanced breaks, and more.
