Nissan Frontier Diesel Runner concept bows in Chicago

by SpeedLux

Nissan has unveiled the Frontier Diesel Runner concept at the Chicago Auto Show.

Designed with the intention to gauge consumer interest in a next-generation Frontier with a Cummins diesel engine, the concept is based on the Frontier Desert Runner 4×2 and comes equipped with an aggressive exterior with a mesh grille, a roof rack and an aerodynamic tonneau cover. Other highlights of the model include a transparent hood, a carbon fiber engine cover and 16-inch alloy wheels with off-road tires.

Inside the cabin, we can see it has two-tone coloring and comes nicely equipped with features such as leather seats, carbon fiber trim and grey accent stitching. There’s also an instrument pod that provides diesel-specific information.

Under the hood, motivation is provided by a 2.8-liter Cummins turbodiesel four-cylinder engine that generate an output of around 200 hp (149 kW) and more than 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque. It is further mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission which enables the truck to be 35 percent more fuel efficient than a standard model coming fitted with a 4.0-liter V6 petrol engine.
