A New Frontier? [Update: Nope] Nissan Posts Teaser Image of New Pickup on Instagram

http://blog.caranddriver.com/a-new-front...instagram/

Nissan’s global Instagram page features a lovely collection of images of racing triumphs, historic vehicles, Z cars, and GT-Rs. And now there’s a truck under a sheet in a studio featured on the page, which we surmise is a new Frontier pickup, with the caption “There’s a special member of the #Nissan family on the way. Due date: June 11th.”

[Update: We reached out to Nissan USA, who confirmed to us that the new truck is a global offering that has little bearing on our market. The image was posted by Nissan Thailand.]

We can’t see many details, but here’s what’s visible: L-shaped LED running lamps in new headlamps, a curved hood with outboard creases, fog lamps set inside polygonal housings, and a grille with vertical struts rather than the V-shaped struts in use on most of Nissan’s current cars.

Of course, there’s a lot we don’t know about the truck, including whether it’s an update of the current Frontier or an all-new model, as well as what’s under the hood. In Chicago, Nissan debuted a concept version of the current Frontier with a Cummins diesel four-cylinder, which we widely expect to make production in the near future. Check back on June 11 to find out more once Nissan has pulled off the cloth.

I bet it is unibody, based on the pathy. Sad

This shot clearly shows a break between the cab and bed. Has to be frame based.
Wouldn't let me copy the img URL, but here is the link.

2.5L turbo diesel in the overseas market. I just hope it shows up here with the rumored Cummins turbo diesel!

From the windshield back I like the look, the other direction not so much.
