Frontier is a relatively new name for Nissan’s entry-level pickup truck model, which previously wore the evocative Hardbody label. The Frontier is now Nissan’s only pickup after the full-size Titan was discontinued last year.
What’s New/Key Changes From Last Year
The 2022 Nissan Frontier is all-new for 2022 and represents the truck’s first significant redesign since the mid-2000s.
Nissan offers the Frontier in S, SV, SV Convenience, SV Sport, and Pro-4X trim levels. Common to all is a 3.8L V6 engine, a nine-speed transmission, and 4WD. You can choose between King Cab and Crew Cab body styles.
S trim’s standard kit includes 16-inch steel wheels, fog lights, LED taillights, locking tailgate, an 8.0-inch touchscreen with smartphone integration, rear parking sensors, A/C, keyless entry, and adaptive cruise control, six-speaker audio.
The Frontier’s standard safety suite comprises forward collision avoidance with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, blind spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, rear auto braking, and automatic high beams.
SV adds 17-inch alloy wheels, a body-colour grille, heated/power side mirrors, a sliding rear window, dual-zone A/C, power driver’s seat, and heated front seats and steering wheel.
SV Convenience brings a spray-in bedliner, under-rail bed lighting, and passive keyless entry.
SV Sport gains LED headlights and fog lights, and side step rails.
Pro-4X’s additions are all-terrain tires, underbody skid plates, red interior trim, a 9.0-inch touchscreen, navigation, lighted vanity mirrors, surround-view cameras, leatherette-trimmed console, stitched steering wheel/shifter, wi-fi hotspot, wireless charging, and traffic sign recognition.
Pro-4X buyers can add a luxury package of a 10-speaker stereo, premium door trim and console stitching, a garage door remote, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and leather upholstery.
Nissan’s fuel consumption estimates for the Frontier are 13.7/10.6 L/100 km (city/highway).
