It’s here, ladies and gents. As promised, Nissan has officially pulled the wraps off the all-new Frontier. After more than a decade, the truck is finally getting the overhaul it deserves.

The next-generation Frontier has this rugged new look, and it fits the truck quite well. It looks a lot like the new Navara, only this one has a smaller grille, boxier headlamps, and a less brooding front bumper. It still looks aggressive as heck, though, especially with those snazzy wheels and that macho rear end.

This rugged styling carries over to the inside, where you’ll find what Nissan calls a “utility-centric” design. All the buttons, knobs, ports, and displays can be found at the center, and it does give the interior a more organized look. Orange accents have been sprinkled all around, too, providing some decent contrast inside the cabin.

The Frontier’s new nine-inch infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto comes standard, as well as a seven-inch advanced driver-assist display—Nissan claims both displays are the largest-in-class.

Nissan just introduced a new 3.8-liter V6 for the Frontier last year, though, so it’s no surprise that it’s choosing to retain the powerplant. This V6 generates 310hp and 381Nm of torque and is mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox, and that’s a fair amount of oomph for a truck this size.

As with all new Nissans these days, the Frontier also comes with a host of safety and driver-assist tech. There are features such as Nissan’s Intelligent Around View monitor (this one with an off-road mode) and the Nissan Safety Shield 360 package (blind-spot warning, lane-departure warning, and so on).
