    New nissan frontiers hitting the lots.

    Took a look see yesterday. Sat in one, did not drive one. They did a nice job on the interiors. Trims will be S.SV,PRO and PRO 4X. The PRO replaces the DESERT RUNNER trim. (2WD ONLY). Really wanted to see a PRO 4X! A loaded PRO 4X comes in at 46K. These trucks should do well for NISSAN. A very long awaited revamp of the old models.

    You aren`t thinking of trading in your new-to-you (AKA, just acquired) 2018 Chevy Colorado ZR2? Just curious...
    Did you take any pics on your phone of the new Nissan Frontier for your own reference?

    No. The ZR2 is a whole different animal. The ride on those DSSV dampers is crazy good.


    The chance came today to drive a PRO 4X around the lot at a Altoona NISSAN dealer. Have to admit, it is one well thought out put together truck. For that price point tho, the ZR2 wins all day long. Interior was very impressive. Zero gravity seats are great! Ride and power was also impressive.

    By DSSV you mean the Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve dampers/shocks??
    (Yes, I "Googled" that acronym and did the cut-and-paste thing when I found it)

    CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE 85143352 - ZR2 REAR LONG TRAVEL DSSV SHOCKS
    CHEVROLET PERFORMANCE NOW OFFERS AN ALL-NEW COLLECTION OF ZR2 OFF-ROAD COMPONENTS THAT AMPLIFY THE COLORADOS OFF-ROAD CAPABILITY WITH COMPETITION-PROVEN STRENGTH.
    Chevrolet Performance ZR2 Rear Long Travel Dynamic
    Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) Shocks are designed and tuned
    specifically for off-road racing by Chevrolet Performance and
    Multimatic. They provide up to a 10% increase in overall rear
    suspension travel on 2017+ Colorado ZR2 models and feature
    a 16mm diameter rod for higher side load, Viton seals to handle
    high shock temperatures, solid Heim joint lower mount, and
    optimized Spool Valve tuning. Includes both rear shocks and
    all required mounting fasteners. Fully rebuildable through an
    authorized Multimatic DSSV dealer. Chevrolet Performance
    recommends use with the Long Travel Leaf Spring System
    (P/N 84402368), Rear Jounce Shock System (P/N 84422546) and
    Jounce Shock Striker/Leaf Spring Mount System (P/N 84422116)
    for optimum off-road performance.
    NOTE: Intended for off-road use.

    SO, does your ZR2 come with the DSSV dampers and other recomended springs, jounce system, and mounts as an OEM option, OR did you or the dealer add the DSSV dampers ONLY ?

    Re: New nissan frontiers hitting the lots.

    The above you listed are a UPGRADE from factory. The ZR2 does come with DSSV`s dampers standard. The first truck in the world to get them. 2017- present. The SILVERADO ZR2 gets them next year. This is what make`s a ZR2 different from a regular Colorado.

    3.5" Wider Track
    2" Lift
    Multimatic Dynamic Suspension Spool Valve (DSSV) Dampers
    Electronic Locking Front and Rear Differentials
    Longer, Cast Iron Control Arms
    Aggressive Front Bumper and Grille with Improved Approach Angle
    Redesigned Rear Bumper For Improved Departure Angle
    Cowl-Style Hood with Black Insert
    Wider Fender Flares
    Aluminum Skid Plates to protect radiator, oil pan, and front differential
    Rock Sliders
    New 17x8 Wheels with 31" (265/65R17) Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac tires
    "Off-road Mode" alters throttle progression, shift calibration, traction control, stability control, and ABS for different terrain.
    Optional Bed-Mounted Full Size Spare Tire
    Optional Carpet Delet

    A good read on the the stock ZR2 dampers...

    Appreciate all this information, thank you !

    For any domestic vehicle manufacturer to say that their "advanced suspension makes Formula One weep" is the most hilarious thing I have ever heard..

    Re: New nissan frontiers hitting the lots.

    Well, after reading the attached article about this ingenious, game-changing DSSV suspension dampener, you would think that this should be "standard equipment" on ALL GM vehicles. Until you realize that adding $2,500 dampers to an enter-level Malibu or Spark may not make economic sense at GM. (Does anything GM does make economic sense?!! Hey, I am still waiting for my "free" GM vehicle when my (our) Federal government taxes "bought" their stock in 2009 and then loose 9.3 BILLION dollars on the GM buy-back in 2014. I think that program was called "Cash for Clunkers". Don`t go there, Captain Obvious...)

    What REALLY caught my attention is this statement from that article:
    "And it does it all with better off-road ruggedness than an electronic adaptive suspension, better thermal management than a magnetic ride control system and less complexity than either."
    Makes you wonder WHY GM would even continue to use its highly-touted and patented Magnetic Ride Control suspension then!

    Back to the Nissan Frontier Truck!

    C`mon Lonnie, I didn`t read the stuff, but you`re a designer, maybe the DSSV takes up more room so it`s better suited to trucks, or maybe it`s more expensive at this point.

    Re: New nissan frontiers hitting the lots.

    Are there any optional engines for this, besides the 3.8 liter V6?

    No. Only the 3.8 in the new Frontier.
