Great Value by Mubarak
 — Improvement on the 3.0 with the supercharger making it a 3.3. A bump on HP from 180 to 210 puts a kick under the hood. Nice upgrade for the last year of production from the 1987 original Pathfinder/Ha... Read More

2004 Nissan Frontier

The Nissan Frontier saw no major changes for 2004, as it was due for an overhaul for the next year.
The 2004 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, 4WD, and a regular cab. 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 like the 2004 Nissan Frontier for its good looks, reliability, and affordable price tag. Some drivers complain that the cab can feel a bit cramped, and some find the four-cylinder engine to  lack sufficient power.
