Nissan presented a conceptual version of the Frontier pick-up designed to give an idea of the ideal off-road vehicle for rescue services. The premiere of the novelty, which received the prefix Sentinel in the title, was held at the car show in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The blue and yellow color of the Nissan Frontier Sentinel is inspired by the color of the hyacinth macaw, a parrot in South America. The pick-up got 16-inch wheels with off-road tires, a winch built into the front bumper, a snorkel to deeply overcome, as well as a section with extra optics.
In the back of the concept car, they installed two sets of batteries from a Nissan Leaf electric vehicle to power the rescue equipment and lighting fixtures. With special attachments you can transport helmets, gloves, signal lights, rope shafts and other equipment. There is also a platform for launching and landing a drone on the boot lid.
Nissan Frontier in Brazil is offered with a 2.3-liter diesel engine with one or two turbines. In the first case, the unit produces 160 horsepower, and in the second 190 horsepower. Engines can work in combination with a six-speed manual or "automatic" with seven gears.
