Next-Gen Nissan Frontier Spied With Fully Revealed Interior

While we know a new generation Nissan Frontier is on its way for the 2021 model year, the automaker offers no glimpse of what to expect. Now, a new bundle of spy shots finally offers a glimpse of the pickup, including a completely unmanned view of the interior.

Despite the undisclosed interior, engineers wrap the exterior in a little swirling camouflage. From what is visible, the truck takes on a chiseled style with crisp folds and angular lines. Its style is somewhat reminiscent of the appearance of the last Titan. Also, there is no sign of the two traffic light LED strips from the previous teaser image.

Inside, the border is much better. However, the improvements should be obvious since the current pickup dates back to 2005 with a few updates along the way. The quality of the material seems to have improved considerably with touches like the contrasting stitching between the material on the upper and lower parts of the dashboard.

The center console features a new, much larger infotainment screen. Our estimate by looking at it and the elements around the screen make us think the monitor is between six and eight inches. The huge black bezel around the exterior hints that Nissan may be brewing an even larger option that takes up all the space.

Further down the chimney are the HVAC controls with a digital display showing the temperature requested for the dual zone air conditioning system. On the left there is a dial to control the transfer case with the 2WD, 4WD Hi and 4WD Low settings. A corresponding dial on the other side is currently not in place.

The lowest row of the stack contains the heated seat and steering wheel controls. There is also a pair of USB sockets.

The photos don’t give such a good overview of the dashboard. Only the edge of the tachometer is visible and there appears to be a strip of chrome around it.

The new 3.8-liter V6 from the 2020 Frontier will be transferred to this truck. It currently produces 310 horsepower (231 kilowatts) and 281 pound-feet (381 Newton-meters) of torque. Power comes through a nine-speed automatic.

While we know the new Frontier is coming for the 2021 model year, the exact timing of its debut remains a mystery. The end of 2020 or the beginning of 2021 seems to be a possible timeline.
