New Nissan 2022 Nissan Frontier for Sale in Warwick, RI
The long-running Nissan Frontier returns in a big way for model year 2022 with the redesign we’ve all been waiting for. This stalwart midsized pickup truck has been on the American market since 1997, and its last redesign occurred in 2005. That’s quite a long time for a vehicle to go without an overhaul, so this is a big deal. With that said, you’ll find that this all-new third-generation model features a more powerful, rugged, and modern design than previous Frontiers thanks to its larger grille, sharper-looking hood, brand-new precision headlights, and wider, more elevated stance. The rear shows off prominent fenders that integrate with the bumper for a truly confident stance, and the cargo bed has been upgraded with an emphasis on practicality and user-friendliness.
As far as performance, the redesigned Frontier’s powertrain, steering, and suspension components have been re-tuned for exceptional handling in a variety of situations. Some of the biggest changes happened in the cabin, though: it’s more functional, versatile, and technology-focused than ever. One of the main highlights is the newly available class-leading 9-inch touchscreen. Plus, the center console storage area is nearly double the size of what you’ll find in most other midsized pickups. Finally, the ’22 Frontier is the first Nissan with a surround-view monitor boasting moving-object detection and an off-road mode.
Mechanical Basics and Trims
The ’22 Frontier is available in three configurations (extended King Cab with a 6-foot bed and crew cab with either a 5-ft. or 6-ft. bed) and three trim levels (S, SV, and Pro). Every trim gets the same powertrain: a 3.8-liter V8 making a best-in-class 310 hp (along with 281 lb.-ft. of torque) with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Rear-wheel drive is standard for the S and SV, but four-wheel drive is available. The Pro trim comes with the crew cab only, but it can be ordered as either an X (rear-wheel drive) or 4X (four-wheel drive). The maximum towing capacity of the ’22 Frontier is 6,720 pounds.
The S is outfitted with the basics and a few practical extras: automatic headlights, a locking tailgate, rear privacy glass, keyless entry, push-button ignition, a 7-inch drive-assist display, two 12-volt power outlets, four cup/bottle holders, and rear under-seat storage. The crew cab versions get two USB-A and USB-C ports and a 60/40-split flip-up rear bench seat with a fold-down center armrest, while the King Cab has one of each USB port and a forward-facing flip-up rear seat that doesn’t include a folding armrest. The S’s infotainment system is controlled by an 8-inch touchscreen or voice recognition. Its other features are Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, Siri Eyes Free, Bluetooth hands-free (phone use and audio streaming), a six-speaker sound system, and SiriusXM satellite radio.
This base trim also gets some safety technologies: forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking and pedestrian detection, hill start assist, trailer sway control, and driver attention alert. The optional Technology Package will issue adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, reverse automatic braking, and automatic high beams.
Like the S, the SV can be ordered with the Technology Package for those extra driver-assist amenities. This trim also comes with power side mirrors, a sliding rear window, and a power driver’s seat. Many features are offered through the Convenience and Premium packages. The Convenience Package provides push-button start, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, a heated and leather-wrapped steering wheel, a leather-wrapped shift knob, a 120-volt power outlet, and an overhead console sunglasses holder. daytime running lights, fog lights, heated side mirrors, a Class IV tow hitch receiver with a 7-pin wiring harness, a Utili-track channel system with four adjustable tie-down cleats, a bed-mounted 120-volt power outlet, a factory-applied spray-on bedliner, LED under-rail bed lighting, remote start, and Nissan Intelligent Key, which lets you access the vehicle without the key fob in hand. The Premium Package contains LED signature headlights, LED daytime running lights and fog lights, leather seats, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with a HomeLink universal garage door opener, LED front map lights and a rear room lamp, a Fender audio system with 10 speakers, and a moonroof.
Many of the optional items we just mentioned come standard in the PRO-X: the LED signature headlights, LED daytime running lights and fog lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, Nissan Intelligent Key, push-button ignition, LED front map lights and rear lamp, sunglasses holder, and leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob. As a more trail-oriented trim, the PRO-X also gets Bilstein off-road performance shock and red-painted front tow hooks. Its interior is boosted with red accents, illuminated vanity mirrors, two USB-A and USB-C ports, trim-specific embroidered seats with red contrast stitching, and a 9-inch touchscreen infotainment system with integrated navigation and a Wi-Fi hotspot.
The PRO-X has its own version of the Convenience Package, which bundles the remaining contents of the SV Convenience Package not mentioned as standard equipment, in addition to a wireless phone charger and a surround-view camera system. The Pro Premium Package supplies the rest of the features listed in the SV Premium Package, plus premium door trim and center console stitching.
This further ruggedized trim adds a variety of protective skid plates, standard 4WD, exclusive PRO-4X embroidered seats, a two-speed transfer case, an electronic locking rear differential, and hill descent control. The Pro Premium Package is offered as well, and while the PRO-4X Convenience Package adds the same features that are in the PRO-X’s Convenience Package, it also contains a surround-view camera system with a special off-road mode.
