Now, more than ever, drivers are choosing a truck for their everyday vehicle. This shift might be due to a number of reasons, whether it’s to enjoy the great outdoors on the weekend, gain the utmost functionality from their vehicle, or enjoy the advanced safety and technology features in today’s trucks that rival many cars and SUVs. To answer the rise in truck popularity, Nissan offers three standout options, starting with the 2024 Nissan Frontier. The Nissan Frontier is a mainstay in the Nissan lineup, initially debuting in North America in 1997. Since that time, the Frontier has undergone many changes to become the dynamic truck it is today.

You can find the 2024 Nissan Frontier for sale here at Raceway Nissan of Freehold. Our team will take the time to answer any questions you have about the Frontier and ask a few of our own to help us narrow down which trim levels might fit your needs best. The 2024 Nissan Frontier is available in five trims as well as a Hardbody Edition with retro-inspired decals. Continue reading to learn more about the Frontier in general and its specific trims.

Smaller But Still Powerful

As mentioned, the Nissan Frontier was initially introduced in 1997 in North America, replacing the Nissan Hardbody. However, both trucks share the Nissan Navara name in many overseas markets. Since its North American debut, there have been three generations, with the latest redesign in 2022. The Frontier has the smallest footprint of the three Nissan trucks, but that doesn’t mean it can’t hold its own.

The Nissan Frontier gives you the chance to enjoy the freedom of the unpaved road while also providing you with the features you need to easily commute from point A to point B. Additionally, you can choose from a rear-wheel drive or a four-wheel drive model, depending on your needs. New changes for the 2024 model year include the above-mentioned Hardbody Edition, which offers a bit of nostalgia in its design with 1980s styling in the wheels, decals, bed-mounted sport bar, and more. There is also a new SL trim, which offers standard leather-trimmed upholstery, a ten-speaker Fender stereo system, and LED lighting accents.

Regarding power and performance, a 3.8L V6, which first debuted in 2020, is the standard engine. It provides you with 310 hp and 281 lb-ft of torque and is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission that makes you forget you’re driving a truck. This engine power also gives you the flexibility to tow up to 6,640 lbs, which is more than enough to haul a boat or camper for a weekend getaway or load an ATV onto a trailer, and head out for a day of off-roading with friends. The 2024 Frontier offers an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 21 MPG combined with rear-wheel drive or 20 MPG combined with four-wheel drive.

2024 Nissan Frontier: Trim Level Guide

Each 2024 Nissan Frontier trim level offers something for the everyday driver. Which one you choose will come down to preference and how you’ll use your Frontier.

Nissan Frontier S

The S Trim is available in both rear-wheel drive and four-wheel drive, as well as in King and Crew cabs. Along with the 3.8L V6 engine mentioned above, it offers Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Remote Keyless Entry with Push-button Ignition, NissanConnect capabilities via the eight-inch color touchscreen display, and a seamless connection to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.

Other driver-assist features include Intelligent Forward Collision Warning, a RearView Monitor that makes reversing easier, Trailer Sway Control to boost confidence when towing, and Intelligent Driver Alertness to alert you when the system senses a drop in focus. Inside, you’ll enjoy a thoughtful design that takes both you and your passengers into account, with multiple beverage holders, USB charging ports, and comfortable seating. Additionally, the NissanConnect system is easy to use and gives you access to the apps you use most.

Nissan Frontier SV

Some of the key features of the SV trim include 16-inch aluminum-alloy wheels instead of the steel wheels on the S trim, a body-color front grille, and a six-way power driver’s seat with two-way lumbar support. Like the S trim level, the SV trim is available in King and Crew cabs, but it adds a long bed choice for the Crew cab that the S doesn’t offer. Regarding comfort and convenience, the SV trim offers the same eight-inch color touchscreen display found in the S trim, as well as multiple beverage holders and USB charging ports. Other differences in the interior include premium cloth trim and chrome interior door handles.

Nissan Frontier SL

One notable difference between the new SL trim and the S and SV trims is that the SL is only available as a Crew cab. Additionally, as mentioned above, the SL trim makes its presence known with an aggressive exterior that includes 17-inch dark-painted machine-finished aluminum-alloy wheels, LED signature headlights, a sliding rear window, and a power sliding glass moonroof with tilt feature. On the inside, you and your passengers will enjoy Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control, Nissan Intelligent Key with Push Button Ignition, a Remote Engine Start System with Intelligent Climate Control, and even more beverage holders and USB chargers than you’ll find in the other two trims. Plus, passengers in the back row gain a fold-down center armrest, while you and your front-seat passenger will enjoy heated seats.

Nissan Frontier PRO-X

The PRO-X ups the ante with a larger NissanConnect color touchscreen display and Lava Red contrast interior stitching, but the differences don’t stop there. If you’re looking for a truck that is comfortable wherever the road or trail takes you, the PRO-X might be the trim level for you. Of course, the other trim levels can hit the road less traveled as well, but the PRO-X is built for adventure. First, there are the Bilstein off-road performance shock absorbers. Then there are the all-terrain tires. In addition to that, you’ll find LED fog lights and Lava Red-painted front tow hooks. Other features, from safety to connectivity, are on par with the other trim levels as well as other trucks in its class, which means you get a well-rounded truck that doesn’t mind a little dirt when you choose the PRO-X.

Nissan Frontier PRO-4X

Last but not least is the PRO-4X trim level. As you can imagine, it takes everything off-road-oriented about the PRO-X trim to the next level. Like the PRO-X, the PRO-4X is only available in a Crew cab. Unlike the PRO-X, it comes standard with four-wheel drive. The PRO-4X also gives you added support when off-roading with Hill Descent Control, underbody skid plates, and an aluminum front skid plate. Inside, you’ll find many of the same great features found in the other trims with a few design differences, such as the PRO-4X embroidered seats and the uniquely designed carpeted floor mats. Additionally, both the PRO-X and PRO-4X have standard Nissan Door to Door Navigation with Premium Traffic to get you where you’re going with ease.
