More transmission gears and greater engine horsepower should enliven the 2020
Replacing the current standard 152-hp 2.5-L 4-cylinder and an optional 261-hp 4.0-L V6, the 3.8-L V6's first application is the 2020 Frontier. “We're getting 49 more horsepower with the new V6, which is best-in-class standard horsepower,” Castro said. The new 3.8-L engine's torque, rated at 281 lb-ft (381 Nm), matches the outgoing 4.0-L V.6.
