About Nissan Hardbody Pickup (D21U)
The D21 generation is the successor to the Datsun "720". From 1980 to 1983, the company still used the name "Datsun" and then completely changed its name to "Nissan", starting with the 1983.5 truck and car model line. The D21 series is informally known as Nissan Hardbody in the United States. The truck's name, "Nissan Hardbody Pickup(D21U)" refers to its bunk beds and overall styling. The Nissan Hardbody Pickup(D21U) was produced for the U.S. market from May 1986 to 1997, competing directly with Toyota's compact pickup. It has two large headlights instead of four smaller ones. And it has a less boxy and aggressive appearance and great parts.
In the United States, the style of the Nissan Hardbody Pickup(D21U) is "Standard" and "King" (also known as "Extended"). The international market also received a "crew cab" (4-door) version with a short four-and-a-half-foot bed. Available in both 4-cylinder and V6 engines, the 2.4-liter 4-cylinder KA24E was a good-performing SOHC engine that replaced the Z24i in 1990-1997 with new 3-valve valves per cylinder head. The 6-cylinder 3.0L VG30E engine parts have only modestly increased power and torque. Only the KA24E 4cyl engine was available for the 1996 and 1997 model years, available in both 2- and 4-wheel drive configurations. Nissan Hardbody Pickup(D21U) does have high-performance transmission just in case it disappears. Five-speed, including overdrive, the manual transmission is the most common for the Nissan Hardbody Pickup(D21U). But an automatic transmission is an available option. Both rear-wheel drive (4x2) and four-wheel drive (4x4) versions have been mass-produced. A limited-slip differential is standard on top-of-the-line 'SE' trim 4WD variants. Key options include air conditioning, larger wheels/tires, sliding rear window, stereo sound, and rear bumper. There are several trims available, including Base, XE, and Top SE. Starting in 1994, XE could order "value packages" that included air conditioning, power mirror parts, alloy wheels, and chrome body trim such as mirrors and bumpers. The SE is better equipped and it is possible to order a "sports power package" with a sunroof, power windows, locks and mirrors, air conditioning, and special "robotic" alloy wheels.
