One of the most popular models in Nissan’s lineup is definitely the Frontier. The vehicle soldiers into the second year and it seems that the carmaker has a little to offer in the way of changes for the 2017 model year. Apparently, the only changes for the new model year will be new color options and a moonroof feature. Apart from that, the vehicle will be the same as it was when it was first revamped in 2009. However, the carmaker claims that their Frontier will still be a rather competitive truck. They believe that the Frontier with two drivetrain options, fully boxed frame, and AWD and FWD options, can be better than the several new entries in its niche. Let’s take a look at what 2017 Nissan Frontier Diesel has to offer.

The exterior design of the 2017 Nissan Frontier Diesel is classic at this point and we must admit that we really like it. It looks absolutely awesome sporting its small grille and big fenders. Different trim levels even get cool roof rack. The Frontier is offered in different flavors. Namely, there are the four-door Crew Cab and the King Cab with extended cab. As for the exterior changes, this model year we won’t be offered much. The carmaker adds three new exterior colors and those are Gun Metallic, Forged Copper, and Magnetic Black.
