The 2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel will come not only with a new engine but with a completely new design since latest reports suggest a complete overhaul for the next year. The current Frontier is pretty old. It still rides on the same platform as the old second-generation Navara which was replaced four years ago. Considering all this, we can expect to see plenty of significant changes from the familiar truck. This redesign will bring plenty of new things. Not only that we are about to see a new platform, but some additional tweaks as well.
The internationally-offered Navara is going to receive a facelift next year. So, expect all those novelties to be applied on the new 2019 Frontier Diesel. When it comes to this particular, diesel version, it is still unclear which engine exactly will find its place under the hood of a new model.
2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel redesign
Along with the rest of the model’s lineup, 2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel will come completely redesigned. This brand-new version will come with all those novelties that company prepares for the redesign. The new generation will be once again heavily based on Navara pickup, which is available around the world. It will ride on the same platform, feature pretty much identical mechanics, as well as styling.
Still, it is important to mention that the company prepares a mid-cycle update, which will include various kinds of changes, mostly in the visual aspect. All those novelties will be applied to the new 2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel as well. In terms of mechanics, we could see some tweaks on things like suspension, brakes etc. Still, the most interesting should be the new styling.

When it comes to the exterior design 2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel will be far more attractive compared to the outgoing model. It will get the same look as internationally-offered Navara. However, considering that Navara is getting a facelift soon, we can presume that those novelties will find their place on the 2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel as well. Expect the same proportions and overall shape, but various new details. Of course, most of them will come at the front, where we could see things like new headlights, grille, bumper, front fascia etc. Other areas could come with novelties too. After all, expect things like new wheels, new exterior colors etc.
When it comes to the interior, we don’t expect bigger changes when it comes to the dashboard layout. Still, we will see a new instrument cluster, adapted to a diesel engine. Finally, expect to see a unique list of standard features.
2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel engine
Although the arrival of new 2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel is certain, we still don’t know the exact engine that will find the place under the hood of this mid-size truck. There are several units in the game at the moment.
The smallest one is a familiar 2.3-liter unit, which delivers around 150 horsepower.
However, a 3.0-liter V6 from Renaults seems like a much better fit. This unit delivers around 225 horsepower and 405 pound-feet of torque.
Considering that the new Navara is also getting a new V6 engine from Mercedes, it is quite possible to see this unit under the hood of 2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel as well. It is a 3.0-liter engine that delivers around 255 horsepower and 460 pound-feet of torque.
2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel release date and price
The 2019 Nissan Frontier Diesel will hit the market by the end of the year, somewhere in the last quarter. When it comes to price, we expect that the base model will go around 30.000 dollars.
