The 2024 Frontier also introduces an SL grade on Crew Cab models. This grade includes sought-after features such as LED lighting, leather-appointed seating and a Fender 10-speaker audio system.
Also, the 2024 model offers an extended three-year trial period (up from the previous six-month trial) for NissanConnect Services. This telematics feature, compatible with the MyNISSAN smartphone app, offers remote door lock/unlock, remote engine start/stop, vehicle health reporting, emergency calling and integration with Amazon Alexa.
The midsize truck will still come in a variety of bed lengths, drivetrain configurations, and grades. Choices include the PRO-X and PRO-4X models designed to cater to off-road enthusiasts. The Frontier King Cab features a 6-foot bed, while the Crew Cab S and Pro-X/Pro-4X models come with a 5-foot bed. The Crew Cab SV is available with either a 5-foot or a 6-foot bed.
Production will begin in the next few months.
With Nissan going through a variety of changes from leadership to plant production, minimal changes to the 2024 Nissan Frontier was to be expected especially with news it could be on the chopping board. The Hardbody Edition should attract some new customers, but it is too bad Nissan decided to use that nostalgic name for a trim level rather than launching a new compact truck to take on the Ford Maverick and Hyundai Santa Cruz.
I guess there’s always next year.
