2021 Nissan Frontier: a trucky looking truck.



We saw the shape of the new Frontier a few weeks ago as part of that huge Nissan teaser (bottom pic)
Now we get to see more. And it will be quite a squared-off looking thing.

Which I think is a good idea for Nissan. Since GM and Ford all have tried to make their mid-sized trucks more car-like, a smart bet is to go the other way.

The powertrain is technically new but already offered in the "old" 2020 Frontier. As a new V6 and 9 speed Auto.

it looks like Nissan is not giving up on any segments so far. They have 3 great new sedans (the Maxima still has a huge identity crisis). They are not giving up on the full-size trucks. And they even have an all-new Z on the way.

Good for them...

Love the shape, but I'm worried about the grille. Was really hoping that this would be a clean Rouge inspired design with truck proportions. Grill being mesh of the new V-shape Nissan has been using with headlights similar to the Armada facelift.

Well - time will tell.

People who look around more, will realize that you have seen the truck already per a leak or two.
