It’s been a long time coming. The updated 2020 Nissan Frontier comes with an updated price of $27,885 that effectively ends the $20,000 budget-truck era. The 2020 Nissan Frontier mid-size pickup averages about $2,000 more than the outgoing V-6 models, the automaker announced Tuesday.
Nissan overhauled the 2020 Frontier with a new powertrain that includes a 310-horsepower 3.8-liter V-6 with a 9-speed automatic transmission in rear-wheel drive or available four-wheel drive. The powertrain represents an increase of 49 hp over the outgoing model and will be one of the few things to carry over into the redesigned 2021 model, which should launch later this year, depending on when Nissan can resume production.
“We are evaluating (it) on a daily basis based on the current climate,” Nissan spokesman Kevin Raftery said Tuesday.
