While competition is not as fierce as something like the crossover segment, the midsize truck market is still pretty cutthroat. Many companies focus on luxuries and available features, but when it comes down to it, capability is the real deciding factor for a truck. So then, how does the 2020 Frontier measure up in that equation?
Today, we’ll be examining the 2020 Nissan Frontier in-depth to give you a look at what you can expect from the newest iteration of the midsize truck.
The 2020 Nissan Frontier is exploring its namesake with the addition of a more powerful standard V6 and a new transmission. The 3.8-liter V6 puts out 310 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque, which is more standard horsepower than anything else in the segment. The nine-speed automatic is also wonderfully welcome, giving the 2020 Frontier smoother shifting than ever before. The ride quality is excellent and surprisingly nimble, staying more composed on turns and quick maneuvers than you’d expect. Like most other midsize trucks, the Frontier is available in 2WD and 4WD. The 2WD models get 18-city/24-highway MPG; 4WD models are rated at 17-city/23-highway MPG. The max payload is 1,460 lbs, while towing tops out at 6,720 lbs.
The 2020 Frontier again lives up to its name. With the available 4WD, the 2020 Frontier gets an added inch of ground clearance, hill descent control, and a transfer case. There are also other available features, like a limited-slip system and a locking rear differential. The top-tier off-road Pro-4X trim adds even more stuff, like Bilstein shocks, skid plates, and a front tow hook. The 2020 Nissan Frontier Pro-4X MSRPs for $37,490, which is thousands less than other top-tier truck trims.
