The strange meters of the new Nissan Frontier


Does this strange red zone require you to always keep your engine above 6,000 rpm?

All cars fitted with a conventional thermal engine have dials on the instrument panel, one of which indicates the engine speed in real time (tachometer). This tachometer is generally graduated with a red zone on the part furthest to the left, the one where the engine speeds are the highest. In principle, it is obviously not advisable to enter this red zone too often, at the risk of damaging the engine.

But as network users have noticed Reddit, the official images of the new Nissan Frontier show a surprisingly surprising instrument cluster: the red area of ​​the lap counter (and of the speedometer) is located opposite to the usual systems. It runs from zero to the level of 6000 rpm, with only the highest 2000 rpm remaining blackened!

You should never go below 6000 revolutions / minute?
