2017 Frontier Redesign Information

I am sure a number of you have been waiting to see changes happen with the Frontier, as the D40 has been on sale since December 2004 in the US.

As early as November 2016, a redesigned 2017 Frontier goes into production for launch in January 2017, midway through the 2017 model year

I cannot say when it will be announced, but these D23 test vehicles already somewhat tell the story.












Compare that to these of the new Armada, running around as a Y62 Patrol mule last December. That will be out in August as a 2017 model.



The D23 Navara went into development in 2009 and was intended as a D40 replacement from the onset. Things of course got muddled along the way.

The D23 itself, which will form the basis of the Frontier, was designed between 2010 and 2012, being signed off by early-2012. That went into production by July 2014.

There were spy shots of the new Navara in 2013, which no one else caught.



As you can see, that is quite long ago now, considering how it will arrive 4 1/2 to 5 years after basic concept design approval in 2012. By comparison, the new Titan was signed off in the spring of 2013.

I signed up here specifically to share this information. Whether or not to still expect a 2.8 Cummins diesel is a different story.

My sources for early 2017 also match information relating to other Nissan and Infiniti products.

The 2016 Frontier will run a long model year from September 2015 to December 2016.

It is also a small possibility that Nissan will skip the 2017 model year and introduce it as an early 2018 model.

I have not heard anything yet about retooling the current plant, but of course things can be kept under wraps. However, I believe the truck was already being shown in consumer marketing clinics in 2014.

Frontier Redesign

Not a huge fan of the interior. It just looks too much like a car interior with all those swooping angles. I want the interior of my truck to look like it belongs in a truck. I don't want to think I'm sitting in an Altima. One thing does have me curious though. What is that handle for just under the passenger side air vent?

Hmm, that looks like the Navara that there have been several other new posts made for. Who would have thought?

Well hate to say it, but I'm not a fan of that white truck.

You would be if you saw it in all it's glory. Raine, post those awesome pics of the Navara again.

Looks fruity like the new Pathfinder.

It does stock but Raine put some pics up with a lift, some offset wheels and monster tires, and a sweet winch bumper. You see it stock and think you can pass on it but you see that pic and think you gotta have one!

A few questions, 1 will it come in a manual trans, 2 will it come in a long bed ?

The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
