It will appear at an event just before the Los Angeles auto show, and the company will share U.S.-market specifications for the eighth-generation version of this small sedan.

The current Nissan Frontier is like ferns or the coelacanth fish: It's a living fossil that has survived tectonic upheavals in both society and the automotive industry. The version currently on sale in North America has gone almost completely unchanged since it was introduced around 2004.

Naturally, Nissan is aware of this situation and it's feverishly developing an all-new Frontier, which should debut before the year's end. It will be built in America, specifically for American drivers.

  Buick Reveals More Details of 2020 Encore GX A practical model that straddles the space between the diminutive Encore and the mid-size Envision. Without specific dimensions from Buick, we can't be sure which of its siblings the GX will be closest to, but its claimed 25 cubic feet of cargo space behind the second row suggests it will be roughly Envision sized; that car has 27 cubic feet of cargo space, whereas the regular Encore has only 19.

Nissan is giving the 2020 Frontier pickup a new engine and transmission, thus giving us a taste of what is to come with the next - generation model. What makes the engine a tasting-menu morsel? It'll be installed in the redesigned Frontier arriving for 2021—meaning that, for now, the Frontier being

The next -gen Nissan Frontier is nearly here, but the long-running, current Frontier pickup is going out with a bang. That new powertrain consists of a naturally aspirated 3.8-liter V 6 and nine-speed automatic transmission. Nissan also confirmed that the next -gen Frontier is coming next year, so

Ahead of that 2021 model's formal unveiling, the automaker gave us a look at what will motivate this revamped rig. Making it more competitive with other midsize pickups, a newly developed 3.8-liter V6 has been created specifically for this application. Lest you think it's a warmed-over powerplant pilfered from another application, some 93% of its components have been redesigned. And you'll be able to experience it sooner than you think, as Nissan's going to put it in the current Frontier.

This new V6 should provide around 310 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque. Helping it deliver dramatically better performance and fuel economy, it will be matched to an advanced nine-speed automatic transmission, just like in its big brother, the Titan. This should be the only powertrain offered in the next-generation Frontier, which means the base four-cylinder engine and the available manual transmission are gone like yesterday.

The Nissan Frontier pickup , which dates back to 2004, is getting a new 3.8-liter V 6 for the 2020 model year. The 310-hp engine is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission and will be the only powertrain available, replacing both the 2.5-liter four-cylinder and 4.0-liter V 6 currently offered in the

But here's where things get interesting. Nissan is putting this new engine and transmission combination in the existing Frontier for 2020. Yes, the last version of the outgoing model will be powered by this brand-new engine. If all this sounds a bit strange, it is, though it's not totally unheard of. Occasionally, automakers will introduce a new powertrain before a redesigned vehicle comes out. In this case, product development cycles could have gotten out of sync or perhaps plans changed along the way.

To date, more than a million copies of the current-generation Frontier have been sold in America. If Nissan has done its homework, the all-new version should be a solid product in an increasingly popular segment.
