What’s New for 2024: Nissan
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 still breathes life into its sports car heritage with a Nismo performance variant of the Nissan Z, as well as the another run of the GT-R supercar after a brief model year run in 2023 and skipping model year 2022.
Meanwhile, reports from Automotive News that the Altima midsize sedan and Versa subcompact sedan could end production in 2025 without a successor follows other trends throughout the industry.
Every 2024 Nissan comes with a three-year trial for its telematics service called Nissan Connect that connects with a smartphone app to remote unlock the doors and start the engine, as well as access a vehicle health report and other data. Last year, it was a six-month trial. Otherwise, the changes across Nissan’s lineup of two sports cars, two electric cars, two trucks, three sedans, five crossover SUVs, are modest. Though price increases affect most of the 14 vehicles in this transitioning lineup. Here’s what’s been announced by Nissan for the 2024 model year.
