Nissan Unveils Rally-Spec Frontier For 2021 Rebelle Rally

The all-new 2022 Nissan Frontier gets several upgrades as it gears up to participate in the all-female 2021 Rebelle Rally. Nissan has a renowned motorsport lineage, and the company does not shy away from celebrating its career. Over the years, the automaker has introduced many tribute cars. For over a half-century, the company’s active participation in rallies has brought us new re-interpretations of Nissan’s popular models.

The latest motorsport-inspired model is the all-new Nissan Frontier. To draw on its competitive roots, Nissan has arranged a Rally-Spec 2022 Frontier which draws inspiration from Hardbody models from the ‘80s. This new off-roader will compete in the all-female 2021 Rebelle Rally. For the uninitiated, Nissan is the only manufacturer to compete in this very unique competition every year since its inception back in 2016.

The Rally-Spec 2022 Frontier Looks Race Ready!

Just like what you’d expect from Nissan, the Rally-Spec 2022 Frontier is dressed in the Japanese automaker’s signature colors; red, white, and blue. The truck’s branding and an assortment of parts are sourced from Nissan’s motorsports division- NISMO.

The rally truck gets 4-inch lights that are mounted high on the truck’s hood. Nissan has also equipped its rally racer with an electronically locking rear differential, four-wheel drive, and underbody skid plates. NISMO off-road suspension kit is also part of the ensemble, along with a performance exhaust system and chrome-tipped tailpipes.

Nissan’s Rally-Spec 2022 Frontier rides on special 10-spoke 17-inch NISMO Off Road AXIS rims that are wrapped in BFGoodrich All-Terrain tires. We find a 3.8-liter V6 motor under the hood of Nissan’s Hardbody-inspired racer, which is mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The powerplant churns out 310 HP of maximum power.

This retro-themed Rally-Spec 2022 Frontier will be used by Nissan’s team- Wild Grace. The 2021 Rebelle Rally will be held over eight days, where drivers will cover about 1500 miles. The rally starts on October 7 and ends on October 16. Hoover Dam will be the starting point, and the rally will culminate in Imperial Dunes, California.
