It's all-new and all-rugged; the 2022 Nissan Frontier release date brings a dramatic evolution to this dependable truck. From new style to new tech, and of course, new capabilities, you'll find a whole range of things to get excited about in the new Frontier. It's an exciting evolution, and we'll take you through everything new on this page. So read on, and get ready for the 2022 Frontier.
The meat of this new truck starts on the outside. While the 2022 Nissan Frontier release date brings an advanced, modern update all around, the long-lived history of Nissan work trucks hasn't been left behind. Paying homage to the classic race-winning, work-ready Nissan Hardbody truck of the '80s and '90s, you'll find its inspiration in areas like the enormous boxy fenders and chiseled hood bulge. Aside from that classic spirit, everything on the outside is all-new and all-modern.
Modern yet futuristic styling elements like the sleek precision interlocking LED headlights, a new aggressive grille, and more make the 2022 Nissan Frontier impossible to mistake for any other truck out there. That distinct style continues with dramatic flair, packing tail-lights designed with an industrial look, new off-road-ready bumpers with an available skid plate, and an overall design language that screams "durability and strength."
Neither does the rugged, ultra-capable powertrain of the Frontier show any signs of slowing down. Packing a 3.8-liter V-6 engine, just like a 2021 model year new Nissan Frontier for sale, this venerable engine gives best-in-class horsepower to get the job done. Specifically, it lays down 310 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque. What's more, you'll get a nine-speed automatic transmission with it, giving you smooth and efficient shifts, optimized acceleration for highway passing and load towing, along with gear ratios optimized for your needs.
You also get your choice of rear-wheel or four-wheel drive (4WD). The 2022 Nissan Frontier mpg comes in quite efficient, with rear-wheel drive (RWD) models achieving an EPA-estimated 18 mpg city / 24 mpg highway.1 Choose the 4WD configuration, and your 2022 Frontier will get an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city / 22 mpg highway.1
Yet, for all the on-road refinement, even more off-road prowess joins the 2022 Nissan Frontier release date. The trail-ready abilities come full-force in the beloved PRO-4X trim, better than ever for 2022. Naturally, any trim's capabilities start with the durable 4WD system. You can select between sending power to two or four wheels at the turn of a dial, and shift into 4WD-low (4LO) when the going gets tough. But that can also be found in our used Nissan Frontier inventory; what's all-new for 2022 is an underbody designed to climb over obstacles in 4LO without worry.
Three underbody skid plates give the confidence to do so, while a rear e-locker differential gives further get-through-it abilities. So do front Bilstein® Performance shock absorbers, handling the toughest terrain while also giving a smooth on-road ride. An Intelligent Around View® Monitor now with Off-Road mode lets you be your own spotter, while advanced features like hill descent control and Active Brake Limited Slip makes getting through the thick of it even easier.
Even on trims besides the PRO-4X, you'll find many of these features available with the 2022 Nissan Frontier release date, bestowing impressive off-road abilities on any 4WD-equipped model.
As fun as off-road adventures are, for those who use their Frontier as a work truck, you'll find plenty to get excited about. Starting with the straightforward get-it-done capabilities, the 2022 Nissan Frontier towing capacity comes in at up to 6,720 lbs,2 with a maximum payload capacity of up to 1,610 lbs,3 letting you haul whatever your heart or job desires. Bed dimensions range from 59.5-inches long / 61.4-inches wide to 73.3-inches long / 61.4-inches wide, accommodating that maximum payload with ease. As well, four cleats and three channels join in for you to tie cargo down.
In the bed, you'll also find available features like a 120-volt AC power outlet, LED bed lighting, and a smooth opening and closing dampened tailgate. A weatherproof tailgate-mounting portable KICKER® audio system is available for tailgate parties, while an available sliding bed extender gives even more room for workday payload.
But back to towing, as a suite of features make it a breeze on the 2022 Frontier. Among them, the Intelligent Around View® Monitor makes the hardest parts of trailering a simple task, while Trailer Sway Control makes the most nerve-wracking parts an exercise in confidence.
All-new and all-comfortable, the 2022 Nissan Frontier release date brings a redesigned interior focused on making long hours on the road or trail a breeze. From your first step inside, an array of soft-touch high-quality materials greets you. An even more welcome greeting, all-new Zero Gravity front seats are as supple and comfortable as can be, cutting down on the fatigue of a long commute or road trip. Said seats have available heating, but even more comfortable are new sound-absorbing materials making the cabin a peaceful place to be.
New tech also arrives with the 2022 Nissan Frontier release date. A 7-inch digital display within the gauge cluster and a standard 8-inch and available 9-inch NissanConnect® touchscreen infotainment system with smartphone connectivity and available Wi-Fi hotspot kick-off the tech showcase.
