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.

This new V6 should provide around 310 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque.

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.
