Nissan has announced that they’ve started the production for the 2022 Nissan Frontier. But what exactly does the car feature?
A new chapter begins for Nissan’s midsize pickup
The third-generation Frontier for the North American market made its debut in February 2021. Prices start from $27,840 and are now available at your local Nissan dealer.
The model represents Nissan’s 60 year-long history of its pickup sales in the market and continues to pass it on to the next generation by proving outstanding performance and reliability.
Newly designed exterior features sharper headlights, a front fascia featuring further robustness, and a large bumper with a strong outline. These elements provide a stable atmosphere while performing a secure off-road experience for its passengers.
Four trims are available from two body types, the King Cab and Crew Cab, while selectable from either a 4×2 or 4×4. Among the models, the PRO-4X (4×4) and PRO-X (4×2) come with special equipment such as exclusive LED headlights, DRL, and fog lamps. The Lava Red accent gives a more aggressive appearance to the entire car both on interior and exterior.
The updated interior features a 7-inch Advanced Drive Assist Display that displays various information. In addition, the center of the instrument panel is designed to be simple and intuitive, making it easy for the driver and passengers to use.
For safety, Nissan’s Safety Shield 360 technology includes a variety of the latest features, as well as the Intelligent Around View Monitor with Off-Road Mode, a first for Nissan’s North American lineup.
This mode supports tough off-road driving by using four cameras mounted on the exterior to display images as if looking down from above when driving at low speeds.
As for the powertrain, a 310 hp 3.8-liter V6 engine is combined with a 9-speed AT to achieve both efficient and powerful driving.
Available in 4×2 and 4×4, the 4×4 is equipped with an electronically controlled part-time shift-on-the-fly 4WD system with 2WD, 4WD HI, and 4WD LO modes. In addition, four-wheel limited slip control ensures traction even on slippery surfaces.
All models are equipped with hill start to assist as standard equipment, and 4WD models are also equipped with hill descent control to assist safe driving on steep roads and mountain roads.
The new Frontier is manufactured in Canton, Mississippi, with engines produced in Tennessee.
“The new Frontier has far exceeded our expectations and set new standards for medium-duty truck performance, technology, and power. Our team at Canton is proud and ready to produce the next generation of the strongest, most rugged truck on the market.”, says Tim Fallon, VP for Nissan North America, Inc. – U.S. Manufacturing (Canton)
Expectations are high for Nissan’s new pickup truck, which will be launched under the Frontier name in North America and the Navara name in Asia.
