A New Frontier? [Update: Nope] Nissan Posts Teaser Image of New Pickup on Instagram


Nissan’s global Instagram page features a lovely collection of images of racing triumphs, historic vehicles, Z cars, and GT-Rs. And now there’s a truck under a sheet in a studio featured on the page, which we surmise is a new Frontier pickup, with the caption “There’s a special member of the #Nissan family on the way. Due date: June 11th.”

[Update: We reached out to Nissan USA, who confirmed to us that the new truck is a global offering that has little bearing on our market. The image was posted by Nissan Thailand.]

We can’t see many details, but here’s what’s visible: L-shaped LED running lamps in new headlamps, a curved hood with outboard creases, fog lamps set inside polygonal housings, and a grille with vertical struts rather than the V-shaped struts in use on most of Nissan’s current cars.

Of course, there’s a lot we don’t know about the truck, including whether it’s an update of the current Frontier or an all-new model, as well as what’s under the hood. In Chicago, Nissan debuted a concept version of the current Frontier with a Cummins diesel four-cylinder, which we widely expect to make production in the near future. Check back on June 11 to find out more once Nissan has pulled off the cloth.


2.5L turbo diesel in the overseas market. I just hope it shows up here with the rumored Cummins turbo diesel!
