What To Expect

Following its last freshen in 2024, the all-new Nissan Frontier is being redesigned for the 2027 model year. The 2027 Frontier will likely carry a whole new look and a refreshed feel both inside and out. Since the last freshen did little more than some cosmetic tweaks in 2024, we're expecting a ground-up redesign, starting with the engine, and encompassing the entire midsize truck, both inside and out.

We do expect there to be a new overall look to the truck, in line with the changes Nissan has made to other vehicles. This will include new lights both front and rear, a sleeker less boxy look, and possibly a new tailgate design as well.

On the inside, we expect the new Nissan Frontier to have all the latest bells and whistles including Navigation and wireless connectivity as standard.

2027 Nissan Frontier Engine & Specs

We're not sure if the engine in the 2027 Nissan Frontier will retain its naturally-aspirated 3.8-liter V6, or if it will follow suit of many other brands and ditch its gas-guzzler engine for a turbocharged four-cylinder that is more fuel-efficient.

The current Frontier carries a 3.8L V6 that produces 310 horsepower and 281pound-feel of torque. If this engine persists, it may well be the last midsize truck to retain this type of powertrain.

As far as specs go, the Frontier is highly customizable, with a variety of cab and bed size combinations. The most popular model is the crew cab short-bed truck, which measures 210 inches long.

When properly equipped the current Frontier can tow up to 6,640 pounds and has a payload capacity of 1,620 pounds. PRO-4X trims that are off-road capable get slightly less towing and load capacity.

2027 Nissan Frontier Safety

The current Frontier carries only airbags and seatbelts as safety features, like most trucks, the standard kit is minimal on base models.

You'll have to pay an additional fee for the Technology Package ($990 at the time of this writing) to get features you'd expect to be included such as lane departure warnings, blind spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a rear sonar system, rear automatic braking, high beam assist, and intelligent cruise control.

We're hoping that the all-new Frontier will now include these features as standard equipment, but there's no word on what features will be included in the redesign.

2027 Nissan Frontier Price

With a full redesign, we expect the 2027 Nissan Frontier to have a higher price than the current Frontier on sale. Prices for the current Frontier have an MSRP of $31,270 including destination. We expect the newly redesigned Frontier to start around $33,000.

The Nissan Frontier will compete with other midsize trucks such as the Chevy Colorado, Ford Ranger, GMC Canyon, Toyota Tacoma, and the Jeep Gladiator.

2027 Nissan Frontier Release Date

Based on previous release schedules, we expect the 2027 Nissan Frontier to arrive in dealership in the Fall of 2026. We will update this page as more information becomes available.
