Nissan had already anticipated that Nissan NP300 Frontier would receive an update soon. Something deserved, since the current generation already has a career of little more than five years on their backs (or rather batting). In addition, we must not forget that it is one of its most successful models, not only in Mexico, but in different markets worldwide.
What’s going on?
After an official video of the brand we could appreciate its silhouette for a few seconds. NNew news comes from Thailand, since in that country a photograph was leaked that lets us see in its entirety, the front redesign to which the Japanese pickup will be subjected.
Thus, we can observe a frontal that resembles that seen in, for example, la Nissan titan. The grill is bigger and more robust. The headlights have a black background, and change their design to a more rectangular one. Judging by the absence of LED daytime running lights, it can be concluded that it is an intermediate version. But, thanks to the renders, we already know what the lighting signature will be like.

According to our colleagues, MZ Crazy Cars, the cabin will also be renovated and we will find more dramatic shapes, as well as better finishes and materials. A larger screen than the current model will stand out. The list of news will be really interesting.
Regarding the mechanics, NP300 is expected to have a deep overhaul which will surely result in a new set-up or calibration of the components (it is rumored that it will take advantage of much of what the Mercedes-Benz X-Class ), but there will be no major changes from the current scheme. Thus, the current engines would be maintained.
By the way, it should be clarified that this NP300 will be different from Frontier to be sold in the United States (Mexico is the only market where both coexist), although apparently, despite the discrepancies, they will have much in common. Replicating what we have seen in, for example, the Ford Ranger (The American model is slightly different from the rest of the world).
In Mexico we should know this pickup at any time. So it would not be unreasonable to think that it could debut at the end of this year or early 2021.
