Overview

For more than 20 years, the hard-wearing Frontier has served hardworking people. It’s a tradition that Nissan took to heart when redesigning this midsized pickup. The result is an irresistible blend of the Frontier’s original ruggedness and the latest technology. Some trims are more work-oriented, while the PRO-X and PRO-4X come equipped for off-pavement adventures. Regardless of which one you choose, you’ll get a class-leading 310 horsepower and all of today’s sought-after tech features for safer driving and staying connected.

Trims, Configurations, and Powertrain

The 2022 Frontier is built on a heavy-duty frame and comes in four trims (S, SV, PRO-X, and PRO-4X) and two cab configurations (King Cab and Crew Cab). The four-seat King Cab, which has two standard front doors and two smaller second-row access doors, is offered for the S and SV trims. All four trims can be ordered as the five-seat Crew Cab, which has four standard doors. There’s also a King Cab, which gets a 6-foot cargo bed, while the Crew Cab has a 5-foot bed (the Crew Cab SV can be ordered with the longer bed).

All Frontiers have the same powertrain: a 3.8-liter V6 that makes a class-best 310 horsepower and 284 lb.-ft. of torque partnered with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive (RWD) is standard on the S, SV, and PRO-X. Four-wheel drive is optional on the S and SV and standard on the PRO-4X. The EPA-estimated fuel economy is 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway for RWD Frontiers and 17 city/22 highway with 4WD. Towing capacity maxes out at 6,720 pounds, and the payload limit is 1,610 pounds (these capabilities vary by trim).
