The 2017 Nissan Frontier is a new pickup truck from Nissan factory that will be released very soon. It has been on sale since 2004 in this current form and it is time for redesign. We cannot expect any big redesign changes because there is no room for it. Biggest changes will probably happen under the hood. Thanks to cooperation with Cummins Diesel we should see diesel powerplant in new Nissan Frontier 2017. This will be big plus for when it comes to competition: Toyota Tacoma, GMC Canyon and Chevy Colorado.
