2020 Nissan Frontier Diesel Exterior Review

The upcoming pickup truck will get further exterior upgrades. The 2020 Nissan Frontier Diesel will get slightly different styling cues. Styling now looks more aggressive and subtle at the same time. Frontier may look rugged but some of the parts are really subtle. Side doors are perhaps the finest example. The front end looks sharper and meaner.

Grille and headlights will stay intact on the other hand. Frontier will gain new optional wheels and new exterior colors. The mid-size pickup will also offer numerous off-road features and most of them are optional. Dimensions are the same as on the current model. Frontier Diesel will look exactly the same as the regular gasoline variant.

Interior Refreshments

The all-new 2020 Nissan Frontier Diesel will also get some refinements from the inside. That includes a longer list of standard features, for the start. On top of that, Nissan Connect infotainment system is updated and the cabin will look more modern. Design is borrowed from the company’s lineup of sedans.

That means the Frontier pickup will borrow some cues from the Altima and Maxima models. Nissan also promised a more practical cabin but the layout will largely remain. King Cab and Crew Cab configurations are available. Legroom is ample in both variants. Moreover, Frontier is a comfortable pickup. However, if you want the best possible comfort, you’ll have to buy optional leather upholstery.
