After a redesign, the 2024 Nissan Frontier model should sport minor updates. The Frontier truck will surely remain one of the most popular models in the mid-size segment. Now that the redesign finally happened, we expect even better numbers in terms of sold units. On the other hand, Toyota Tacoma and Ford Ranger are still more popular buying options.
Therefore, the Japanese carmaker could surprise us with one or two novelties. Some reports are predicting more power, although the current powertrain option will remain. The sales will begin next summer, so here is what we know at the moment.
Since the Frontier model recently received a dramatic makeover, the new 2024 Nissan Frontier should remain intact. Of course, some minor tweaks should happen, but don’t expect significant changes at all. The architecture remains, so the mid-size truck will be dimensionally the same. New colors could happen, along with new optional packages.
On the other hand, trim levels are intact. The styling is very modern, like on the Navara model. The current design is inspired by the Nissan Hardbody Desert Runner, with a larger grille and modern headlamps. As before, Frontier will come with off-road versions such as Pro-X and Pro-4X.
Nissan Frontier Interior Changes
The upcoming 2024 Nissan Frontier will continue to provide further high-tech updates. Therefore, the interior will be more modern than before. The next-gen model introduced a new cabin design, which is very important. Now, Nissan is focusing on technology. For a start, the automaker will allow more customization. The updated infotainment is on the way, along with the new driver-assistance aids.
On the other hand, an 8-inch touchscreen will remain standard. You can opt for an optional 9-inch display. Things like Wi-Fi hotspots and wireless charging are also optional. The Frontier model can be had in regular King Cab or optional Crew Cab configurations. Only the SV trim level allows combining the roomy crew cab interior with a longer cargo cab of the King Cab.
Frontier Hybrid Rumors
Right now, the mid-size Frontier model comes with a reliable 3.8-liter V6 engine. This unit provides 310 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque and it comes with a 9-speed automatic transmission. Since the platform won’t change, this engine will most likely remain the standard engine option. However, we heard a couple of rumors regarding the new engine option.
Diesel is always in the mix but rumors some reports are strongly suggesting a new hybrid powertrain. Of course, this is a likely outcome, as the all-electric version is not coming anytime soon. We are waiting to hear more details on this.
2024 Nissan Frontier Price, Release Date
It will be interesting to see if the 2024 Nissan Frontier will once again cost below $30,000. Anyway, the price will start at that range, but official details are not available yet. The upcoming model will hit the dealerships next summer, or maybe even later.
