Nissan Frontier (Nissan Frontier)
The Nissan Frontier – a traditional frame pickup truck, which was produced in the U.S. since two thousand and four years. The first version of the car is well known to Russian customers under the name Navara. But then the ways of American and global versions diverged. The new Frontier has nothing in common with the refreshed Navara – it is wholly independent car. Techno base almost everything remained the same – frame, front independent suspension and strong continuous rear axle with leaf springs, “shorter” steering wheel with steering system. But the exterior of the new truck has undergone a trivial configuration and implemented in corporate North American style. Square appearance, new LED headlights, modern rims. Approximately the same can be said about the interior. The new torpedo has a usual shape, hard plastic. But there is a place for two color monitors (in the dashboard and on the center console).
The 2nd generation of the car has grown considerably in length – from 5 thousand three hundred and 30 mm for the version with a non-long platform, and up to 5 thousand 600 ninety mm for the lengthened version. The wheelbase varies depending on the version from three thousand two hundred to three thousand five hundred and 30 mm. Carrying capacity of the vehicle is seven hundred and thirty kilograms. Fuel tank capacity – ninety-two liters. Ground clearance two hundred and 50 mm.
Engines and transmission.
The pickup comes with a single 3.8-liter concrete-injected V6 gasoline engine. Its power is three hundred and ten hp.с., torque of three hundred and eighty-one Nm. The engine is only mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The drive can be rear or all-wheel drive (the front axle is connected “hard”, there is a reduction gear). All-wheel-drive modes can be selected with a switch in the cabin. Top versions of Pro-4X feature electrically locking rear differential, Bilstein springs and underbody protection.
Nissan Frontier is available in three trim levels. The most common is the King Cab with a one-and-a-half-cab, followed by the Crew Cab (with a big cab) and finally the largest Crew Cab Long Bed SV with a big cab and an extended body. Still, the top version of the Pro-4X only comes with a standard body. The basic package includes a 7-inch touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto support, cruise control, stabilization system, 16-inch wheels, air conditioning, keyless entry and push button start, manual seat adjustment, USB and AUX inputs. More expensive versions offer features like a rearview camera and parktronic, dual-zone climate, electric front seat adjustments, navigation. The most common rear-wheel drive version is priced in the States at twenty seven thousand one hundred and ninety bucks, and the top version Pro-4X already at thirty seven eight hundred and ninety bucks.
