Yeah that's fair. What do you think you would replace it with? Those new frontiers look nice but too much $$$ for me haha.

Fake news if anything. We'll see the day it gets officially announced, but Nissan definitely dropped the ball on not getting on that while the market got hot. They're focused on EVs, which is a market with much competition and poor sales that currently doesn't have he greatest long term outlook at the moment.

Rumours are all I ever heard. Nissan really missed the boat on that IMO. They could easily build one on the new Frontier platform and I'm sure it would sell well. But there's probably a lot of compliance crap they have to meet that would make it hard.
 
When I had to dump a ton of money into my car last year I was looking for newer ones and at the price point, I'll drive my 20 year old Golf for a few more years.
