The 2019 Nissan Frontier is heading to the Overland Expo West. Nissan is bringing the one-off concept to the annual event being held in Flagstaff, Arizona. Offroad and outdoor enthusiasts gear up to experience the wilderness adventures at the Fort Tuthill County Park. Nissan is going show up ready for camping and offroading with their decked out capable Frontier.
This project is called the Nissan Destination Frontier, conceptualized from a 2019 Crew Cab SC 4×4 Midnight Edition. The Destination Frontier has loads of modifications including a Nisstec 3-inch lift kit, Nitto Trail Grappler off road tires, American Racing AX201 wheels, skid plates, rock sliders, a Hefty Fabworks bumper, a WARN Industries Zeon 10-S winch, and a WARN winch Roller Fairlead with Epic Winch Hook. And it doesn’t stop there, the Frontier has a Leitner Designs bed rack, a CVT Mt. Shasta collapsible rooftop tent, an integrated Dometic combination refrigerator and freezer, a Rhino Rack Pioneer Tray, and Baja Designs LP6 Pro lights for extra visibility.
The Destination Frontier keeps the 4.0-liter DOHC V6 engine with 261 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque. This engine provides a maximum tow capacity of up to 6,720 pounds (when properly equipped). Tiago Castro, the Nissan North American director for light commercial vehicles, said in an official statement, “this special Destination Frontier is designed to do two things: first, demonstrate Frontier’s durability, quality and reliability, even when traveling to remote destinations. And second, to help democratize the overlanding experience by showing a more affordable approach to the sport.”
The punch line here is that this Destination Frontier can be built for less than $40,000. The custom wrap job is not added into the pricing, but the Midnight Edition list price is $32,925. Nissan achieves the goal of providing an offroading build at an affordable price.
