The Nissan Frontier is due for a major redesign for the 2019 model year. While details have not yet been officially released, Nissan has confirmed the next-generation compact pickup truck will be built in Canton, Mississippi alongside the Murano, Titan and Titan XD.
Industry sources say the next Frontier will be based on the overseas Navara pickup. Features and engine options are still unknown, though Nissan has already begun incorporating diesel power into its lineup with the Titan XD.
There have been rumors that Nissan may incorporate a 2.8-liter Cummins turbodiesel in the next Frontier producing approximately 200 hp with 380 lb-ft of torque to compete with offerings from GM in the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon. However, this has not been confirmed.
An official release date for the 2019 Frontier has not yet been announced. However, based on production estimates, we currently anticipate an on-sale date sometime in the fall of 2018. We'll update this page as new information becomes available.
