All-New 2022 Nissan Frontier

The All New 2022 Nissan Frontier modern mid-size-pickup.

The 2022 Nissan Frontier is fashionably late to the modern mid-size-pickup party, but its bold bodywork, futuristic face, and adoption of popular technology could make it the new hotness. While its blistered fenders draw inspiration from the original Nissan Hardbody compact truck. The truck interior goes from drab to near fab with a more stylish layout and additional features. Power is provided by a potent 310 horsepower V6 that pairs with a nine speed automatic transmission and rear or four wheel drive. Off road enthusiasts will appreciate the Pro 4X trim that has a beefier suspension, an electronically locking rear differential and other rugged add ons.

The updates go further than crisp new styling and an attractive interior. Alongside those skin deep changes is a new suite of safety and technology features, integrating standard forward collision warning, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto connectivity and more.

The 2022 Frontier inherits the naturally aspirated 3.8-liter V6 that made its debut on the last generation 2020 model. The engine generates 310 horsepower and 281 pound feet of torque and 381 newton meters to the rear or all-four-wheels depending on configuration. It pairs with a nine speed automatic transmission and rear or four wheel drive.

The Frontier will come standard with an 8.0-inch infotainment display, the largest standard screen on offer from any pickup manufacturer. The midsize truck will offer a 9.0 inch screen giving it that all important best in class distinction. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will be standard, as will a USB-A and USB-C port up front. A wireless charger, Wi-Fi hotspot and surround view monitor will be optional. Nissan says the center console is almost twice as large as most midsize trucks at 4.0 liters while added rear door pockets improve stuff storage as well.

The exterior is a drastic departure from the old truck, the cabin looks a bit more similar the shape of the door panels for example. Hard plastics look like they will abound in the new truck including the top of the dash, glove box, door panels and center console. Padded plastic shows up on the armrests, dash fascia and console mounted grab handles only, But the Chevrolet Colorado, Ford Ranger and Toyota Tacoma also feature Rubbermaid spec interiors, so the Frontier should at least be class competitive.

The 2022 Nissan Frontier should offer surprising off road capability. In fact, the 2020 Pro 4X suspension performance in rough terrain is equal to that of the more expensive Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro owing particularly to those well tuned Bilsteins. Here is hoping Nissan left well enough alone because the Frontier is a hidden gem among factory off roaders.

The 2022 Nissan Frontier will come in four different grades: S, SV, Pro 4X and Pro X, two cab styles and two bed lengths.
