Nissan’s introduction of the 2024 Nissan Frontier Hardbody Edition celebrates a feeling of nostalgia. This brand-new truck from the Frontier series pays homage to the storied Nissan Hardbody from the 1980s by merging vintage design cues with modern engineering to create a truck that will stand out both on and off the road.
The thrilling Hardbody Edition, which pays homage to the renowned pickup from the 1980s, is a feature of the 2024 Nissan Frontier. This historical replica has all-terrain tyres on 17-inch wheels that are modelled after the original design.
The Hardbody Edition package pays meticulous attention to detail, coating the bumpers, mirrors, door handles, and grille in sleek black paint, creating a unified and stylish appearance. The truck is further adorned with bold black graphics that prominently display the “4×4” logo on the front doors and feature a distinctive tailgate graphic featuring a cut-out “Nissan” logo, replacing the standard Nissan tailgate emblem.
This flagship model comes with a range of premium features as standard, including LED lights for enhanced visibility, luxurious leather-wrapped seats that add a touch of sophistication, heated front seats and steering wheel for added comfort, and a high-quality 10-speaker audio system by Fender, ensuring a top-notch audio experience for passengers.
It still retains its reliable 3.8-litre V6 engine, delivering a robust 310hp and 380Nm of torque. This capable engine is paired exclusively with a smooth 9-speed automatic transmission and offers the choice of rear-wheel-drive (4×2) or all-wheel-drive (4×4) configurations. Nissan continues to offer a variety of cab styles, including the King Cab, Crew Cab S / SV, and Pro-X / Pro-4X, all with a spacious 6-foot bed. Additionally, the Crew Cab SV model is available with a shorter 5-foot bed for added versatility.
In recent reports, it’s been mentioned that Nissan has made the decision to extend the lifecycle of the current third-generation Frontier until 2029. The successor to this model is expected to come equipped with a fully electric powertrain, aligning with the industry’s shift towards electric vehicles.
The 2024 Nissan Frontier, which includes the captivating Hardbody Edition and the comfort-oriented SL trim, will be available with a starting Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of $29,770 (RM139k).
