Slapping a bunch of Nismo bits is usually a surefire way to enhance a Nissan’s capability.

Nissan USA has just announced that it will be releasing a handful of new Nismo off-roading bits for vehicles like the Frontier (known in our region as the Navara), Titan, and Xterra SUV. These parts will be making their debut on a 2020 Frontier competing in this year’s Rebelle Rally at Lake Tahoe.

The new Nismo add-ons include an off-road performance suspension kit featuring monotube, gas-pressurized shocks with additional travel, a two-inch lift, as well as a new heavy-duty high-tensile steel bumper (that weighs just 105lbs) with a powder coat finish. The last part comes equipped with two recovery points and is designed to be winch-capable.

If you’re more concerned with looks than actual capability, Nismo appears to have this covered, too. Also available are Nismo off-road auxiliary lighting units developed in partnership with Rigid Industries. The lineup includes a set of six-inch 8,600-lumen lamps with aluminum housings. You can also fit your truck with macho new Nismo off-road wheels in gray.

Anyway, it’s nice seeing Nismo giving Nissan’s less speed-oriented offerings some love. What other cars in the Japanese manufacturer’s lineup would you like to see offered with Nismo accessories? Let us know what you think in the comments.
