Nissan has used the 2017 Buenos Aires Auto Show to unveil its latest Navara-based concept, the Frontier Attack.

According to Nissan, the specially-prepared Frontier (Nissan’s international name for the Navara) is inspired by monster trucks, with Nissan’s South American operation monitoring public reaction to the concept with a view to introducing a production-friendly version.

Among the more obvious changes, the Frontier Attack rolls on a more aggressive wheel and tyre package and suspension that has been raised by 40mm over the regular Navara, leading Nissan’s designers to nickname it ‘The Beast’.

Bright red paint with a black bonnet, roof, sports bar, and side steps also fuel the amped-up styling, but otherwise the Attack concept sticks closely to the regular Navara with a few extras, like roof racks, added from Nissan’s accessory catalogue.

Under its bonnet, the Frontier Attack retains the same 140kW/450Nm 2.3-litre twin-turbo diesel engine, coil-sprung rear axle, and electronically-engaged 4x4 system. Nissan also describes a “manual 6-speed gearbox” although the accompanying images clearly show an automatic shifter and two pedals, suggesting someone at Nissan’s PR department really needs to brush up on their basics (whoops!).

Alongside the auto-shifter the interior is also dressed up with a special Attack interior including black cloth and leather seat trim trim with red contrast stitching and monogrammed Attack logos, plus red plastic highlights across the dash and centre console.

"With its aggressive design inspired by off-road fans in Latin America and imposing 'monster-trucks,' the Attack is ready to overcome any barrier placed in front of it." Robert Bauer, the chief designer of the Nissan’s Rio de Janeiro design team said.
