Nissan Destination Frontier: self-sufficient concept truck revealed

Nissan USA has revealed the latest in a long list of off-roading concepts, this time based on the Frontier mid-sized truck – also known as the previous-generation Navara. The Destination Frontier (to reiterate, previous-generation Navara) is designed to be a showcase of what can be done with ute, a bit of time, and a desire to go 'overlanding'. The total cost of the vehicle, truck and modifications included, is US$40,000 ($57,800).
