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.
Standard and Available Features
The S is a no-nonsense work truck that’s equipped with automatic headlights, a 7-inch driver information display, overhead cargo bed lights, rear privacy glass, keyless entry and ignition, two 12-volt DC power outlets, two USB ports, second-row under-seat storage, four bottle holders, black exterior accents, and a rearview camera. Nissan upgrades the SV with body-colored exterior accents, power side mirrors, a sliding rear window, and a power-adjustable driver’s seat.
Those who want additional advanced features can add either or both optional packages. The SV Convenience Package issues dual-zone automatic climate control, daytime running lights, Nissan Intelligent Key (which doesn’t require physical use of the key fob to lock or unlock the doors), remote start, fog lights, heated front seats, a heated leather-wrapped steering wheel, a leather-wrapped shift knob, a 120-volt AC power outlet, heated side mirrors, an overhead compartment for the sunglasses, a Class IV tow-hitch receiver with a 7-pin wiring harness, a Utili-track Channel System with four adjustable tie-down cleats, a factory-applied spray-on bedliner, a bed-mounted 120-volt AC power outlet, and LED under-rail bed lighting.
The SV Premium Package bundles signature LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, LED fog lights, charcoal leather upholstery with black stitching, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal garage door opener, LED front map lights, a moonroof, and a 10-speaker Fender audio system. The Pro-X and Pro-4X get most of those optional features (the signature LED headlights, LED daytime running lights and fog lights, dual-zone automatic climate control, Nissan Intelligent Key, and sunglasses holder) and are eligible for the remaining ones via the respective Pro-X Convenience, Pro-4X Convenience, and Pro Premium packages. These two trims also receive lava red front tow hooks and interior trim, black overfenders, two additional USB ports, a 60/40 split flip-up bench seat, and Pro-embroidered seats.
Infotainment and Connectivity
Each trim gets at least a few standard driver-assist features, starting with forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, and driver attention alert. Several more are available as options. The S and SV qualify for a Technology Package that adds adaptive cruise control, lane departure warning, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, reverse automatic braking, and high beam assist. The Technology Package for the Pro delivers all of that plus traffic sign recognition. A surround-view camera system is available for the Pro as well; an off-road mode is included with the 4WD Pro-4X.
Nissan ensures that Frontier drivers and passengers will stay connected and entertained with the latest multimedia features. The infotainment system in the S and SV has an 8-inch touchscreen, voice recognition, smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay), a hands-free text messaging assistant, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, a six-speaker audio system, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The Pro moves up to a 9-inch touchscreen and adds navigation and NissanConnect remote services; a 10-speaker Fender sound system is optional for the all but the S trim.
