No mention of the Z but at least projections for 2023 model should be good enough. Nissan HAS been coming out with exciting designs, The Frontier looks fabulous, if only a similar Xterra follows, but not the X-Terra (ugly). I will gladly replace my X also, it's been a very capable offroad rig!

yeah the Z seems like it will be the last of the entire 12 products in the "Nissan Next" roll out. probably after the Aiyra. Thats why I keep saying summer early fall of next year its going to be the icing on the cake of this staggered release

The middle east X-Terra isnt that great looking I agree. it feels like new styling queues half tacked on like an old Armada or something. The frontier restyle was BADLY needed and does look good for sure it has that masculine american market truck look but also modern at the same time. they did a great job. I used to have an older 2005 NISMO frontier and my GF had a 2019 Midnight Edition. we were thinking about waiting on the new one or even the pathfinder but ended up trading for a 21 Rogue last fall. which in my opinion is another great product for what it is. So Nissan is starting to have some good offerings again as up until this year they had let their product line age a bit more than their competitors.

The new Rogue looks pretty good and the Pathfinder should be solid. My only thing with the Pathfinder is that the headlight seem to be to squished together compared to the Rogue.

What I really want is the next gen Xterra to be an extension of the aggressively redesigned Frontier! Great styling and safety features. .

I still have my lifted 2nd gen Offroad model crawler, she's a keeper for.

With the rising popularity in off-road SUVs Nissan needs to jump on this.

I doubt Nissan is going to invest too heavily in a proper BOF midsize SUV/Xterra based on the Frontier.
Very high gas prices are incoming again. We'll see another slump in SUV/truck sales pretty soon.

Haha yep, unfortunately lame, not seriously offroad worthy. We'll see how long Bronco's popularity lasts, good signs so far though, and we know that Rubicons (gas and hybrids) will continue to bring in sales while Nissan is sulking on the sidelines.

At least there is promise with the new Frontier, very nice design and execution.
