The upcoming 2024 Nissan Frontier is coming once again, this time, with minor updates. Some reports are predicting something which could be described as a mid-cycle facelift, but we think that is unlikely to happen. After all, this mid-size pickup truck recently introduced significant changes. In any case, some things will change, and we are especially interested in what’s under the hood. Yes, the current engine remains. However, a hybrid powertrain could be on the way.
On the other hand, the diesel engine is not so likely. Frontier will remain one of the most reliable pickup trucks. Unfortunately, the mid-size segment is full of established and reliable trucks, so Frontier was never the best possible option. However, Nissan plans to introduce further upgrades to the Frontier Pro-4X model.
Engine Specs and Hybrid Rumors
The mid-size 2024 Nissan Frontier presently comes with a solid 3.8-liter V6 engine. This engine produces 281 lb-ft of torque and 310 horsepower. Additionally, it has a refined nine-speed automatic transmission. Given that the platform won’t change, this engine will likely remain a choice in the 2024 Nissan Frontier.
However, we did discover some rumors regarding the new engine choice. Diesel is not a possibility, despite the clear suggestion of a new hybrid powertrain in several speculations. Therefore, a hybrid powertrain is the most logical outcome, as the all-electric Frontier is still a couple of years away.
Nissan Frontier Interior Updates
Future 2024 Nissan Frontier models will continue to have innovative upgrades. As a result, the cabin will be more upright and more modern. The new interior design used in the following generation is recognizable. Nissan is currently putting its focus on technology. The infotainment system will be updated in addition to the new driver-assistance functions.
But an 8-inch touchscreen will still be available as standard. Additionally, a 9-inch touchscreen variant is offered as an optional part of the equipment. New optional features include Wi-Fi hotspots and wireless charging. The crew cab layout will once again be available, and there is no doubt that it will be the most popular choice among customers.
Frontier Pro-4X Will Gain More Upgrades
Given that the Frontier model just underwent a considerable facelift, the new 2024 Nissan Frontier will likely preserve its original appearance. Undoubtedly, a few small changes should be made, but don’t expect any significant change. The size won’t change too, so the platform remains. It’s possible that new appearance packages and colors will be introduced.
Reports state that trim levels are, nevertheless, completely the same. The Nissan Navara pickup and the Frontier both have upright, and recognizable stylings. With new front fascia and further cosmetic improvements, the next Frontier will receive minor updates. On the other hand, the Pro-4X off-road trim level will probably gain more upgrades.
2024 Nissan Frontier Will Cost $30k
The price of the new 2024 Nissan Frontier will start at $30,000, which means the price will receive a minor increase. On top of that, the PRO-4X trim level will be available for around $40,000 or slightly below that. The sales will begin later in 2023, probably by the end of the fall.
