The Mercedes-Renault/Nissan alliance is one of those arrangements you probably have forgotten about until you see an announcement like this. It's also very telling about the kind of truck Mercedes wants, since they already make nice, useful work pickup trucks.
Nissan's PR folks maintain the new truck we spied is "not the 2015 Frontier." I'm almost positive it's the 2015 Navara, the non-US truck aesthetically identical to the Frontier. Whatever they call it, reader HammerheadFistpunch has broken down and analyzed the teaser, so let's see what we can figure out.
Front and rear photos of a completely uncamouflaged, obviously new, small Nissan Pickup are making their way across the internet via the Nissan Navara Club Thailand. It sure looks like the genuine article and I dare say, Nissan has done a nice job porting their swoopy styling to a pickup truck.
The freshly-unveiled Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner embodies some great ideas that really gets me fired up about the future of trucks: it's small, it's focused on efficiency, and it's being designed with off-road usage in mind.
Nissan's ad campaign for the Frontier has the pickup engaging in absurd and impossible stunts like snowboarding, dune-riding and catching an airplane wheel in the bed of the truck. The commercials are, in word, terrible. Let's use physics to show you why.

It would be the exact same if they showed the Frontier beating a…
This one's a bit less heinous than the airplane-using-the-truck-as-landing-gear one, but it's still pretty stupid. You would think there would be plenty of genuine, existing things you could show a 4-wheel drive truck doing to support snowboarders, but I suppose that was all too boring for the brain of that 7-year-old…
The most known of Nissan's batch of masturbatory hero-fantasies masquerading as commercials is the one where a Frontier takes the place of the broken front landing gear of an airliner. It's presented as a faux-newscast, which only makes it worse, really. Here's the analysis of why this is such crap provided by our…
Halfway through the Brazos Valley Off-Road Ranch I contemplate turning back. But there is no way back, only forward. The 2009 Nissan Frontier PRO4X has gotten me this far. Can it get me out?
Nissan will be recalling 242,720 2005-2009 Xterras, Pathfinders and Frontiers due to a faulty airbag sensor.
