The 2000 4-cyl (KA24DE) is essentially the same engine, except for the dual-overhead cam 16v, whereas the '96 is the SOHC 12v (KA24E). Other than that, there's hardly a difference.

If I remember correctly, the 24E makes 136hp, and the 24DE makes 145hp or somewhere close. Just a bit more power, but I honestly can't feel the difference. I've compared my '97 which has the SOHC to my brother-in-law's 2000 Frontier, both 5-speeds, and they don't perform any different.

I had a 97 2wd sohc hardbody SE and I now have a 04 dohc frontier and they are about the same around town but the frontier seems to pull harder at higher rpms which i credit to having the dohc head.
The hardbody seemed to have just a bit more low end power but i think it had a lower final drive ratio.
On paper they make the same peak torque of 154 ft lbs but the sohc comes in at 3600rpm where as the dohc coms in at 4000rpm so that may have somthing to do with it.
On the highway again is where the dohc really seems to shine over the sohc.
It will cruise at 90 all day with minimal effort. The sohc wasent bad but still not as good but again that may have somthing to do with the axle ratio.

MPG of 2 wheel vs. 4x4?

Anyone know what difference in MPG is between '00 frontier 2 wheel 5 spd.vs. ''00 4x4 5 speed?......How about MPG difference in both of above with automatics? Been looking at a couple but wonder if automatics are quite a bit less. thanks
