The Nissan Frontier is a beloved midsize pickup truck with style and power. With the latest lineup of Frontiers, Nissan leveled up the rugged vehicle with a fresh exterior look, new comforts, and revamped technology. If you're looking for a versatile family-friendly truck, that's playful enough for vacation but functional for a worksite, read on and learn more about the 2022 Nissan Frontier.

Trim Levels

The 2022 Nissan Frontier comes in four different trim levels: the S, the SV, the Pro-X, and the Pro-4X. The options don't stop there, though. Each trim of this highly customizable truck comes in different configurations that dictate its size and functionality. You can choose between the King Cab and Crew Cab models on the S and SV trims. The Crew Cab models offer four doors and a roomier cabin with extra passenger space. You can also opt for a longer bed on the SV trim.

S and SV models also can come with either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. For more driver assistance and tools like Hill Start Assist, opt for four-wheel drive. The Pro-X comes with two-wheel drive, and the Pro-4X comes with four-wheel drive.

Engine Specifications

All trims come with a 3.8-liter gasoline engine. Like you might expect from this powerful workhorse, the engine delivers an impressive amount of strength at 310 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque. It has a maximum towing capacity of 6,720 pounds and a payload capacity of 1,610 pounds, so it's ready for work or play. Higher trims have a slightly lower capacity, reaching up to 6,470 pounds on SV and Pro-X models and 6,270 pounds on Pro-4X.

The 2022 Nissan Frontier can be surprisingly fuel-efficient, considering its size and strength. With two-wheel drive, the 2022 Frontier gets 18 miles per gallon (mpg) in the city, 24 mpg on the highway, and 20 mpg combined. Meanwhile, four-wheel-drive models get 17 mpg in the city, 22 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg combined.

Interior Features

The S comes standard with cloth upholstery, a push-button ignition, a power driver's seat, two 120-volt power outlets, and a storage compartment under the second row. The SV has most of the same interior features as the S, but you can add optional upgrades like an overhead storage console, an extra power outlet, and automated climate control. The Pro-X comes with front-seat sun visors, extra cup holders, red stitching, a leather steering wheel, and a standard overhead storage console. The Pro-4X adds a bit more luxury, with dual-zone automated climate control, a rearview mirror that dims itself, and soft floor mats.

Exterior Features

Nissan's 2022 redesign of the Frontier gave it a longer body and a tougher build. In appearance, the latest Frontier has an athletic, dominating presence. It comes in nine paint colors: Glacier White, Super Black, Deep Blue Pearl, Red Alert, Baja Storm Pearl, Gun Metallic, Cardinal Red Tricoat, Boulder Gray Pearl, and Tactical Green Metallic. Standard external features include LED taillights, automatic headlights, a black grille, rear bumper, and door handles, privacy glass in the rear, and solar glass that reduces UV exposure.

On higher trims, you can get extra features for function and style like a moon roof, LED lighting on the bed, a special tow hitch receiver, heated mirrors, and a front grille that matches the paint color. The Pro-4X also offers a host of features that equip it for off-roading, like special shocks and all-terrain tires. 17-inch aluminum wheels come on all trims, but the wheels on the Pro-X and Pro-X4 trims are a bit higher-quality.

Technology Features

Nissan also upgraded the Frontier's tech for 2022. The standard infotainment system comes with an 8-inch touch screen that offers crisp, high-quality color graphics, but the higher trims have a 9-inch screen instead. All Frontiers come equipped with voice recognition technology, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, Bluetooth capabilities, two types of USB ports, and a six-speaker sound system. Upper trims have a Wi-Fi hotspot and extra USB ports, and you can opt for a ten-speaker sound system or wireless charging on the top trims. The highest trims also come with a security system to prevent theft.

Safety Features

The Frontier also comes with a host of high-tech safety and driver assistance tools, so you can feel secure while you take your truck adventuring. A series of clever standard features come on all Frontiers, and there are extra high-tech features you can add for an extra charge. All trims come with features like:

  • Cruise control.
  • A rearview monitor.
  • Emergency brakes with pedestrian detection.
  • Forward collision warnings.
  • Trailer sway control.
  • Traction control.
  • Driver awareness alerts.

Optional additions for added safety include:

  • Lane departure warning.
  • Intelligent cruise control.
  • Rear cross-traffic alert.
  • Blind-spot monitoring.
  • Rear automatic braking.
  • High beam assist.
  • Rear sonar system.

You can bundle optional features with the Technology Package, available on the S and SV trims or the Technology Package Pro, available on the Pro-X and Pro-4X trims. Higher trims come with a few more advanced standard features, like technology that helps you avoid rolling down steep hills. You can also add extra features to these top trims, like technology that recognizes traffic signs and a more comprehensive rearview camera.
