While some automakers have abandoned their car lineups, Nissan has remained faithful to the vast majority of its low-slung models. Even though the full-size Maxima has met an untimely end, being discontinued beyond the 2023 model year, Nissan continues to offer subcompact, compact, and mid-size cars in addition to other models. This article delves into the changes buyers can expect for 2024 Nissan vehicles. Nissan finds itself at a crossroads. Like many other automakers, the Japanese brand has revised its lineup for the electric era by leaning into popular crossover SUVs and moving away from vehicles that tax the brand’s compliance with increasingly stringent vehicle emissions standards.

The 2024 model year will mark the last year of the Nissan Titan full-size pickup truck, but Nissan celebrates the pickup’s final run with an SV Bronze Edition featuring black and bronze styling elements in addition to bronze 20-inch wheels. Still, the manufacturer breathes life into its sports car heritage with a Nismo performance variant of the Nissan Z, as well as another run of the GT-R supercar after a brief model year run in 2023 and skipping model year 2022. 

It is worth noting that every 2024 Nissan comes equipped with a three-year trial for its NissanConnect service that connects with a smartphone application to unlock the doors and start the engine remotely, as well as access a vehicle health report and other data. Last year (2023), it was a six-month trial.

The Retro Pickup Truck

The 2024 Nissan Frontier adds a new Hardbody appearance package and a top-tier SL trim. In other words, Nissan brings the 1980s back with a Hardbody based on the SV crew cab. It rolls on retro three-spoke 17-inch alloy wheels and all-terrain tires, sporting a front skid plate, mud flaps, a bed-mounted sport bar, and black exterior accents with all the graphics. Moreover, the top SL trim replaces the SV Premium Package and adds a sunroof, fog lights, leather upholstery, a heated steering wheel, and heated front seats.

The Supercar

The front and rear fascias of the 2024 GT-R exhibit new designs, and an all-new rear wing improves downforce and minimizes drag. Titanium exhaust pipes also come standard this year (2024). Additionally, the T-spec trim returns and bridges the gap between the Premium and the top Nismo trims. It has wider front fenders, a stability control system lifted from the Nismo, carbon-ceramic brake rotors, 20-inch gold-painted wheels, and a blend of suede and leather in the interior. Millennium Jade and Midnight Purple paint colors are also new, inspired by rare R34-generation GT-R models.

Subtle Style

The 2024 Nissan Sentra is a refreshed compact sedan that sports a new front end with a broader grille tipped by narrower headlight designs and revised wheel designs. The top SR trim gets standard heated front seats, while the SV Premium package incorporates a surround-view camera and Bose sound system. Notably, Nissan announced that the revised continuously variable transmission (CVT) and a new start/stop system increases the automobile’s fuel economy and improves overall drivability.

The Return of the Z

The Nissan Z sports coupe returned for 2023 following the end of the 370Z. In the 2024 model year, Nissan reintroduces the Z Nismo performance model. It bears red accents, larger wheels and brakes, as well as a black roof. Finally, performance is bolstered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 engine from 400 ponies and 350 pound-feet of torque to 420 horsepower and 384 pound-feet of torque.
