2020 Nissan Frontier

What's New For the 2020 Nissan Frontier?

For a model that's been around for 15 years, the Frontier has seen very few upgrades. It's crafted to appeal to the individual who needs to get down and dirty. The Frontier has a rugged build and can handle the most uneven of road surfaces. Last year, the Frontier got a mild refresh, but for 2020, this model comes with a whole new engine and powertrain. Also, push-button start and a completely redesigned center console make their debut.

Available Features in the 2020 Frontier

The 2020 Nissan Frontier is a mid-size pickup that can be purchased either as an extended two-door or crew four-door. Five trim levels are available. The base trim is the S model, and it rides on 15-inch steel wheels, comes with rear privacy glass and front bucket seats, and boasts air conditioning, cruise control, Bluetooth, and a rearview camera. A 7-inch screen display sits in the newly redesigned center console. The SV trim has 16-inch wheels and an upgraded cabin layout. It can be purchased with a sunroof if the crew cab is chosen. It also gets a spray-in bedliner and a Class IV trailer hitch.

The Desert Runner is more oriented for off-road travel. It comes with foglights, high-performance shocks, and off-road tires. The Pro-X trim is likewise suitable for off-road travel. It gets a locking rear differential and special knobby tires. The 2019 model Pro-X also came standard with navigation, and this is expected to carry over to 2020. The SL trim is the range-topper and comes with 18-inch wheels and the sunroof. It's eligible for several packages add-ons and stand-alone options. Most trims can be purchased with a premium Rockford Fosgate sound system.

How Much Power Does the Nissan Frontier Have?

Nissan has decided to ditch both of last year's Frontier powertrains. Now under the hood is an all-new 3.6L V6 that puts out a total of 310 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. Depending on trim and package chosen, the Frontier has either rear- or all-wheel drive. The new engine promises better performance on paved roadways, and Nissan has also tinkered with the steering, making it less sloppy than in years past. Overall, the 2020 Frontier handles playfully on the off-road and dirt road surfaces.

All 2020 Frontier trims come with a full set of airbags, including dual bags in the rear of the crew cab versions, stability and traction control, and rollover sensors for the curtain-style rear airbags. Anti-lock brakes and four-wheel ABS are also standard. Each trim now comes with a rearview camera. The Frontier is built with zone-body construction with front and rear crumple zones, and the NissanConnect Audio interface is a welcome addition to this model's safety features.

2020 Brings a Wide Selection of Safety Tech

It comes with automatic collision notification and stolen vehicle locator. Several driver aids are available on the higher trims, but for now, they are offered as stand-alone options rather than as an expensive package. Other standard safety features include rear door child safety locks, child seat anchors and tethers, tire pressure monitoring, and rear-seat height-adjustable headrests on the crew cab versions.
