After revealing 2004 Nissan Frontier, this truck had great success on the market. Sales were constantly growing, but anyway Nissan decided to offer all new model. Future 2018 Nissan Frontier will be even more improved and it will certainly offer much better performance. Frontier truck is based on Nissan Navara, which is offered on the International markets.
Nissan will have to implement some changes in order to sell this truck on the U.S. market. First of all, this refers to emissions and safety regulations, which are not the same in the U.S. and abroad. It is also expected for 2018 Frontier to get new engines, improved equipment and new design. Current design is very raw and muscular, and this is going to change. We expect to see more sophisticated design of upcoming Frontier. Inside the cabin, Frontier should be almost identical to Navara model. Some interesting features which will be offered on 2018 Frontier are active brake system, cross-lane detection, front and back collision warning, active cruise control and blind-spot monitoring system.
