The Nissan Frontier is a mid-size pickup truck that has been a part of Nissan’s vehicle lineup since it first debuted on the mainstream auto market in 1997 as a compact truck. At the time of its initial launch, the Frontier was revolutionary. Over the first few years of its availability, it became a bestseller in Nissan’s vehicle lineup and morphed into a mid-size pickup truck as these types of trucks became more popular on the mainstream auto market. However, the Nissan Frontier has received only minor styling updates over the past 15 years—which means it is in major need of a redesign and has been for several years. The Nissan Frontier was scheduled to undergo its much-needed redesign for the 2021 model year. However, the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic in March of 2020 turned the entire auto industry on its head and delayed the release of the redesigned Frontier from the 2021 model year to the 2022 model year. Now, anticipation grows for the 2022 Nissan Frontier in Dallas.
While this delay was disappointing for many drivers who were looking forward to seeing what Nissan had in store for their Frontier for 2021, Nissan did not disappoint with their reveal of the all-new, completely redesigned 2022 Nissan Frontier.
If you’re in the market for a mid-size pickup truck, you have countless different models to choose between. However, the redesigned third-generation 2022 Nissan Frontier should definitely be on your list. Keep reading to learn more about 5 features that make the drivers await all-new 2022 Nissan Frontier in Dallas.
Impressive Drive Performance
The 2022 Nissan Frontier makes things easy for drivers because it is only available with a single-engine option. Fortunately, that engine option is high-performing and gives the 2022 Frontier plenty of power on the road.
Equipped with a naturally aspirated 3.8-L V6 engine that delivers 310 horsepower and 281 lb.-ft. of torque on the road, the redesigned 2022 Frontier offers enough power to get you wherever you need or want to go.
The engine of this midsize truck pairs with a nine-speed automatic transmission that ensures a smooth and steady ride for both drivers and passengers alike. The 2022 Frontier is also available with either rear- or four-wheel drive, depending on your preferences and driving needs.
High Payload and Towing Capacity
The payload and towing capacity of the 2022 Nissan Frontier are very impressive, especially considering the fact that the Frontier is a mid-size—not a full-size—pickup truck.
The towing capacity of the third-generation 2022 Nissan Frontier is the same as that of the second-generation Frontier—6,720 pounds—which still allows the Frontier to hold its own among other mid-size trucks on the market in terms of towing capacity. At 1,610 pounds, the payload of the 2022 Frontier is 160 pounds higher than that of the second-generation Frontier and impressive within the Frontier’s vehicle segment of mid-size pickup trucks.
Excellent Fuel Economy
Pickup trucks—even smaller mid-size pickup trucks like the Nissan Frontier—are not generally renowned for their fuel economy.
Within its vehicle class, however, the 2022 Nissan Frontier excels in terms of fuel efficiency. It is expected to deliver approximately 18 MPG on city streets and 24 MPG on the highway for a combined average gas mileage of about 21 MPG.
When compared with that of other mid-size pickup trucks within its vehicle segment, the fuel economy of the 2022 Nissan Frontier is very impressive and efficient—which will help 2022 Frontier drivers save big on fuel costs and decrease their carbon footprint at the same time.
Versatile Tech Options
