Find Your Frontier

There’s a lot of excitement around Nissan these days, as this new generation of the Frontier has been a long time coming. The midsized truck hadn’t been redesigned since 2005, although it had plenty of technology updates and other important tweaks along the way. Model year 2022, though, has brought a lot of changes, starting with the rugged new design. The grille and fenders are more prominent, the headlights are ultra-modern, and the pickup has an allover wider and taller stance. Nissan has also improved the cargo bed with more features, raising this workhorse’s utility factor even higher. Of course, mechanical upgrades are crucial in any redesign, and the Frontier has those as well, with a retuned suspension, steering, and powertrain. This tech-focused automaker has also packed in some state-of-the-art features for connectivity and safer driving: the Frontier offers a class-largest 9-inch infotainment touchscreen and becomes the first Nissan model with an available surround-view monitor that has moving-object detection and an off-road mode.

Configurations and Mechanical Basics

The 2022 Frontier comes in a trio of configurations: extended King Cab with a 6-foot bed and Crew Cab with either a 5-ft. or 6-ft. bed. Nissan offers three trim levels as well – S, SV, and PRO – with each getting a 3.8-liter V8 that puts out a best-in-class 310 hp (and 281 lb.-ft. of torque) with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is the default, but four-wheel drive is an available upgrade. The PRO is only offered as a Crew Cab, but buyers have the choice of RWD (known as the PRO-X) or FWD (called the PRO-4X. A properly equipped 2022 Frontier can tow as much as 6,720 pounds.

Standard Features by Trim Level

Most buyers of the Frontier S are simply looking for a capable and reliable work truck with everything they need to get the job done. The ’22 Frontier S has a great mix of features that accomplish that: keyless entry, keyless ignition, overhead cargo bed lights, two 12-volt DC power outlets, two USB ports, and four bottle holders for a thirsty crew. When you have to leave valuables inside, rear privacy glass and second-row under-seat storage add protection from prying eyes. This base trim adds some convenience with automatic headlights and a 7-inch driver information display.
The SV raises its style level with body-colored exterior trim and gets upgraded with a power driver’s seat, power side mirrors, and a sliding rear window. It’s also eligible for the SV Convenience Package, which packs in a ton of improvements. It adds daytime running lights, fog lights, remote start, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, Nissan Intelligent Key, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, a leather-wrapped shift knob, heated side mirrors, and an overhead compartment for sunglasses. An abundance of work-related enhancements are in this package as well: a Utili-track Channel System with four adjustable tie-down cleats, a sprayed-on bedliner, a bed-mounted 120V AC power outlet, LED under-rail bed lighting, and a Class IV tow-hitch receiver with a 7-pin wiring harness.
The SV Premium Package is also available to add some of the same features and more, including upgraded LED lighting (headlights, daytime running lights, front map lights, and fog lights). Its other features are a moonroof, dark-gray leather upholstery with black stitching, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, and a 10-speaker Fender audio system.
The PRO-X and PRO-4X get most of those optional features (the upgraded exterior lighting, dual-zone automatic climate control, Nissan Intelligent Key, and sunglasses holder) and can add the remaining ones thorough the PRO-X Convenience, PRO-4X Convenience, and PRO Premium packages. Both of these trims also get red front tow hooks and interior trim, black overfenders, another pair of USB ports, a 60/40 split flip-up bench seat, and seats embroidered with the PRO logo.

Advanced Safety Systems

As always, Nissan includes an array of its outstanding state-of-the-art driver-assist features. The technologies that are standard on every ’22 Frontier are driver attention alert, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection. Those who order the S or SV can elect to add the Technology Package to get high beam assist, rear parking sensors, adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, a blind-spot monitor, rear cross-traffic alert, and reverse automatic braking. The PRO trim’s version of the Technology Package adds those features along with traffic sign recognition; it’s also eligible for Nissan’s Around View Monitor that detects moving objects; the version of this monitor in the PRO-4X (4WD) is also set up with an off-road mode.

Infotainment and Connectivity

Nissan drivers and passengers always have plenty of infotainment features at their disposal. The ’22 Frontier has, as we mentioned above, the largest available infotainment touchscreen (9 inches) in its segment. The standard infotainment system has an 8-inch touchscreen, with the ability to control it with voice recognition as well. The system has both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, a hands-free text messaging assistant, Bluetooth (for hands-free phone use and audio streaming), SiriusXM satellite radio, and six speakers. The larger touchscreen comes standard on the PRO trims, as do navigation and NissanConnect remote services. All but the base S can upgrade to a Fender audio system with ten speakers.
