2023 Nissan Frontier Adds Wireless CarPlay, Starting at $29,190

All trim levels of the Nissan Frontier get a price increase, some minor cosmetic changes, and a new Midnight Edition. The Nissan Frontier seeks to position itself as one of the most competitive midsize pickups on the market

The new Nissan Frontier is already a year old. We’ve reviewed it, talked about its older technology, and compared it directly to the previous Frontier. However, there is no denying that modern updates are welcome. For 2023, Nissan has tweaked the model lineup slightly, added a few new features and increased the price by $500 to a base $29,190.

Nissan Frontier Midnight Edition

As for new features, Nissan’s beefy pickup streamlines the packages and adds a few appearance options. A Midnight Edition allows customers to commit to the hottest color, with black badging, wheels, mirrors, grille, bumpers, interior accents, and accent lighting kits. This is standard Nissan equipment available on other models, but has been incorporated into the Frontier.

Wireless Apple CarPlay

Some Frontier trims also have more standard equipment. The long-wheelbase SV Crew Cab model comes standard with the SV Convenience Package, which includes a heated steering wheel, heated seats, a spray-on bed liner and a host of bed accessories. The most welcome of the changes is the addition of wireless Apple CarPlay to the PRO-X and PRO-4X, with a minor change in stitching from black to lava red on the same models.

Price increase on Nissan Frontier models

It’s unclear if lower trims get wireless CarPlay. If they don’t, it’s pretty disappointing. But overall, changes to the Frontier’s first model year are incredibly minimal. Frankly, there is not much to change. The base price of $29,190 is for a complete two-wheel-drive pickup with no options. For the cheapest crew cab Frontier S 4×4, it will be $33,490, starting at $32,990. The PRO-4X trimmer pickup also sees an increase to $38,720 from $38,120.

There also appears to be no mechanical upgrades like a telescoping steering wheel or general refinements to engine and transmission calibration. Although with only a year on the market, it is very unlikely that Nissan has changed anything.
