2021 Nissan Frontier Manual Transmission
2021 Nissan Frontier Manual Transmission – Nissan will reportedly redesign Frontier for the 2021 year model, basing on the latest version of the F-Alpha platform found under the current Frontier as well as the Titan and fleet.
Speaking to Automotive News, the source familiar with the product said the 2021 Frontier would receive a futuristic design that “still looks like a truck. ” Surprisingly, the new Frontier won’t make the leap to the NP300 platform found under the market Global Nissan Navara, Mercedes-Benz X-Class, and Renault Alaska pickups.
According to Automotive News, Navara is too small to compete effectively in the North American market, and Reengineering the coil-link rear suspension for using spring leaves is cheaper to be expensive. Thus, the 2020 Frontier would be soldiers using the F-Alpha architecture.

It will also be reported back by the 300HP V-6, replacing Torquey but the Haus 4.0 VQ-Series six-cylinder in the current Frontier. That may be the new Frontier will receive a revised VQ35 3.5 L V-6 which features direct injection – The Pathfinder crossover currently uses directly-injected 284HP VQ35 machining.
Maxima currently also uses the VQ 3.5 L V-6 (albeit less direct injection) which makes 300 HP. In any case, the 300HP V-6 in Frontier will be paired with an automatic seven-speed transmission, up from five speeds in the current truck. We hope the six-speed manual gearbox will still be offered too.
Despite the age and lack of relative proficiency compared to the more modern mid-size trucks, Frontier is still selling well enough – behind Rogue and Murano, Frontier is Nissan’s third-selling vehicle. And in 2018, it still represents 15 percent of U.S. intermediate sales trucks, beating GMC Canyon and Honda ridgeline in terms of volume.

That can partly thanks to its low initial price, less than $20,000. Furthermore, it is even loaded with every feature, Frontier slots at less than $40,000, while other intermediate pickups can be as opposed to $50,000 or more.
Nevertheless, we’re looking forward to an all-new Frontier, more so if it retains its attractive and fun-to-drive character. And if the source inside the company proved to be true, we just need to wait another year to find out.
