Well this was unexpected. Jo was wandering around the Chicago Auto Show and stumbled upon the Nissan Frontier diesel at the Nissan booth, which he promptly sent me pictures of. We hadn’t expected this at all, but if you look close you can see that “C” Cummins badge on the front fender. There it is.
It’s hard to see, but it’s there if you look for it. We will bring you more details after the scheduled press conference, but this means Nissan wants to compete with the soon-to-be-diesel-powered Chevy Colorado.
Jo also found a bunch of Cummins guys hanging out by the Nissan booth. Coincidence? Nah.
