I still love my 2019 XLT with all the undeleted options. I still love to caress, I mean clean it, often. As nice as the '24 model looks, I will probably keep this truck till it's time for a dirt nap.

Yesterday, I was outside near the Ranger and a guy in a good-looking, new Frontier drove by real slow, honked, & waved. I think he was appreciating ‘Ol Butterscotch.:)
Good grief, Tracy, if he was driving a Frontier he was not appreciating ‘Ol Butterscotch. He was appreciating you!

I'm wondering that too. I also noticed I can feel a weird "bump" on my left side... wonder if the bladder is partially filled on one side.


In any case, I plan to pull the seat out next summer and pull off the fabric so see if I can modify anything. Or try to snag a seta from a 2019 since the first year models seemed to have softer seats based on my test drives.
I'm pretty sure the "seat comfort" was also deleted after 2019, can we add it to the list? My 2019 is like riding on a cloud.

Love the seat comfort in my 2022. And I too have back issues.!

Overall I'm very satisfied with my '19, wish the MPG's were better but I'm partly at fault when it's so easy to go 80+mph, when i use the cruise and keep it 70-75 it's much better, it's a great looking truck and again I'm happy with it.

Love mine too! Husband keeps talking about getting me the new model when it comes out. How dare he?!!!:oops: I’m keeping this one until it just won’t go anymore. Nothing against the newer ones, I just love mine.:inlove:

Tracy, was that a Freudian slip? Did you mean, "a good-looking guy in a new Frontier?"

I can relate to the looking back when you walk away bit. Sometimes I just sit and stare at it. And I carefully wipe down the interior very often with a dry micro fiber cloth. It gives me an excuse to touch it. Call me crazy but I don't care. I love my truck.
Yep! I do that, too. I say to myself "best looking truck in the (insert place here)parking lot-driveway-intersection-" etc.

Glad to hear I'm not alone. I'm slightly annoyed at the fact it's been raining here for a couple of days because that's preventing me from doing my hand wash ritual. I would also like to get a fresh gleaming and slick coat of wax on mine before winter proper really starts to get going. Make sure you keep your underbody sprayed often if you live where they salt the roads...

Yes, indeed it is extremely easy to get to 80+. I was honestly surprised how fast you can get to those upper speeds from say 50 or 55. Continually blown away how quick these trucks are. I normally try to cruise around 5 over the posted limits and I've been averaging around 23.2 MPG
