The 2020 Nissan Frontier is a tempting small pickup truck with a beginning value of $26,790, and when Nissan launched it in February they celebrated one million mile Frontier owned by Brian Murphy.
Murphy put over one million miles on his 2007 Nissan Frontier, and in celebration of this achievement, Nissan offered him with a brand new 2020 Frontier.
As an unbiased supply driver, Murphy put miles on his Frontier by many 13 hour days.
The 2020 Frontier options an all-new 3.8L engine and a brand new 9-speed transmission. The general model and in-car tech aren’t modified a lot with the 2020 mannequin 12 months, however we nonetheless discovered loads to like in our 2020 Nissan Frontier evaluate.
“Brian Murphy is the quintessential Frontier proprietor, so it’s becoming that he might be driving one of many first 2020 Frontier pickups in America,” stated Craig Keeys, regional vice chairman, Nissan Midwest Area, Nissan North America. “Thanks, Brian, for illustrating the sturdiness and reliability of the Frontier for greater than 13 years and a million miles.”
Murphy’s Frontier is heading again to Smyrna, Tennessee the place the Frontier is assembled. His authentic clutch lasted to 800,001 miles, and he changed the timing chain at 700,000 miles as a preventative measure.
