Let's Break Down The 2015 Nissan "Not A Frontier" Teaser Video

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.

Speculation time on the not frontier that totally is the frontier

Nissan release a teaser video for the new Frontier that's totally not the new Frontier (but totally is) showing what all manufactures do with all their cars but somehow it means more if you show it happening to a truck.

Using my video magics I went in a took a few screen grabs for some wild speculation time!

First up.

This exhaust says two things to me:

1. I'm an exhaust

2. I'm probably a diesel exhaust (high EGT's and what appears to be a SRC cat)


This is backed up by what appears to be a top mounted intercooler or TMIC in NASIOC speak.

The rest is pretty conventional.


nothing new here

or here.

What do you think? are we actually getting exactly what we want here? I more or less the same Frontier with a small diesel engine? I hope so.
