2021 Nissan Frontier - A Short-Lived Model Full of Surprises

2021 Nissan Frontier - A Short-Lived Model Full of Surprises

The pandemic did a number on the automobile manufacturing industry, including delaying new models because of materials and labour shortages. For quite a while, it seemed like Nissan would skip over the 2021 Frontier model completely. However, that is not the case. The 2021 Nissan Frontier model is available across Ottawa as a short surprise model available before a complete redesign is introduced for 2022.

 

The 2021 Nissan Frontier is a capable and efficient midsize pickup truck that is available in extended-cab and four-door crew-cab body styles. The 2020 model year introduced an upgraded V6 engine that delivers 310 horsepower and is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The Frontier offers favourable pricing and impressive off-road capabilities.

 

Design

 

The 2021 Nissan Frontier is the last model of its current generation, which began in 2005. This long-lived model offers style and substance with smooth lines and a polished look and feel.

 

Performance

 

The new model features an extremely capable 3.6-litre V6 engine that delivers 310 horsepower. New to the truck in 2020, the engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission that offers plenty of pep and power to drivers.

 

The new engine provides 3,048kg of towing capability to drivers. It also provides good fuel economy, averaging 9.8 L/100km on the highway.

 

For drivers wanting additional off-road performance, the model to choose is the Nissan Frontier Pro4X.

 

Infotainment

 

The new Nissan Frontier features a large 7-inch touchscreen as the gateway to its intuitive multimedia system. It comes standard with a four-speaker stereo system, USB port, Bluetooth, and Siri Eyes Free.

 

Reliability

 

In a class that features solid offerings from Honda and Toyota, the 2021 Nissan Frontier does not disappoint. It has an excellent predicted reliability rating, making it competitive against others in its class. Nissan's warranties are also on par with its competitors.

 

Safety

 

The Nissan Frontier scored well in crash test ratings for the 2021 model. It comes standard with a rearview camera, and rear parking sensors are also available.

 

Verdict

 

The 2021 Nissan Frontier is a solid pick in the midsize truck category. It offers a new, powerful engine and low price. For drivers that want a truck that will work for them, the Frontier is the way to go. But drivers who want more standard features and a higher-end cabin environment should consider waiting for the completely redesigned 2022 Nissan Frontier.
