2002 Nissan Frontier

For 2002, the Nissan Frontier offered a redesigned intrument panel and an available high-end sound system. More importantly, the standard cab was discontinued, and the Crew Cab was offered with an extended bed, the first crew cab compact truck to ever offer a longer bed.
The 2002 Frontier comes in four trims: the XE, the Desert Runner, the fully loaded SE, and the Supercharged model. The trims came in a variety of body styles, including an extended cab (KingCab), the Crew Cab, a short bed, and 4WD. Most Frontiers, except the Crew Cab and Supercharged, came standard with a 2.4-liter, 143-horsepower four-cylinder engine that gets about 20/24 mpg in the standard cab and 18/21 for the extended cab. The Crew Cab came standard with the 3.4-liter, 170-horsepower V6, which got 15/19 mpg and which was optional in the KingCabs. The Supercharged model came with a 3.3-liter 210-horsepower V6, getting about 15/18 mpg.
Drivers find the 2002 Nissan Frontier to be a solid, dependable truck that can be had at a good price. Drivers are especially enthusiastic about the Crew Cab Supercharged version. Some drivers find the interior space to be tight.
