At the Sao Paulo International Motor Show Nissan showed the Frontier Sentinel concept vehicle. The truck imagines a machine for pushing into Brazil’s most remote areas to perform rescue missions.
The truck wears a Thunder Blue exterior with yellow accents add some visual contrast. The 16-inch wheels wear chunky all-terrain tires. Up front, a winch integrates into the bumper, and a snorkel follows the A-pillar to let the pickup wade through deep water. A light bar in the roof illuminates the terrain ahead.
At the back, Nissan packs the bed with life-saving equipment. There are two battery packs from the Leaf in the back, and there are outlets in the fender for powering electric tools and lights. Drawers allow for storing items like gloves, flashlights, helmets, ropes, axes, and more. The company also adds a hard tonneau cover over the bed that doubles as a platform for a drone to take off and land.
The Frontier comes with a double cab body and 2.3-liter turbodiesel engine. With a single turbo, it produces 160 horsepower (119 kilowatts) or 190 hp (142 kW) in twin-turbo form. There’s also quite a variety of available technology. 360-degree camera system for having a better view of what’s happening around the truck, etc.
