The 2020 Nissan Frontier pickup, which features an all-new 3.8L direct-injection V-6 engine and all-new 9-speed automatic transmission, goes on sale in July with a starting MSRP of $26,790 for the King Cab 4x2 S model.
The 2020 Frontier is available in King Cab, Crew Cab Short Wheelbase, and Crew Cab Long Wheelbase bodies and in a choice of 4x2 and 4x4 drive configurations.
All 2020 Frontier models will feature an all-new, 3.8L V-6 engine and 9-speed transmission, which were developed for U.S. customers and will be key elements of the all-new, next-generation Frontier.
The 2020 Frontier offers best-in-class 310 horsepower, according to the automaker, an increase of 49 horsepower over the previous V-6, while also providing improved fuel economy and emissions performance. The new 9-speed automatic is similar to the one introduced on the 2020 TITAN and is designed to maximize powertrain efficiency and provide enhanced acceleration feel.
The 2020 Frontier offers a number of other upgrades for the new model-year, including standard push button start. In addition, several features are now standard for all grades: leather shift knob, manual tilt steering, power door locks, and power windows with driver side auto-down.
With improved power and performance, new standard equipment and better fuel economy than the previous model-year trims with V-6 engines and automatic transmissions, the 2020 Frontier carries an average price increase of under $2,000.
Two previous option packages have been added to 2020 Frontier Crew Cab SV grades at no additional charge. The Midnight Edition includes special black exterior treatments and 18-inch gloss black aluminum-alloy wheels, while the Special Edition Package features trip computer, Satin Chrome grille, body-color rear bumper, and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels.
The Desert Runner trim, SL trim, manual transmission, and I-4 engine options are no longer offered in an effort to simplify the model lineup.
