The original Nissan Frontier hit U.S. showrooms back in 1997 as a compact pickup truck entrant. Throughout its first generation (1997 - 2004), the Frontier was offered in both two and four-wheel drive and the choice of a two-door regular cab or crew cab body style. The first generation Frontier was based on the Nissan Hardbody pickup and featured boxy, utilitarian styling and a no-frills interior.
In 2005, Nissan updated the Frontier as a mid-size pickup for the U.S. market, and it remained relatively unchanged for the next 16 years. Despite the absence of a major redesign, Frontier sales continued to be robust throughout its long second-generation run, including the last few years of production. It’s a testament to the Frontier’s timeless design and appeal and a reminder that demand for mid-size pickup trucks remains strong.
The Frontier enjoys a cult following among small pickup truck fans, especially because of Nissan’s long-term commitment to its core design philosophy. By the 2020 model year, the Frontier officially became the oldest consumer vehicle in continuous production. Interestingly, the pickup’s highest volume sales year happened in 2018, demonstrating the staying power and universal appeal of its design.
The 2021 model year marked the end of an era, with Nissan finally retiring the 16-year-old second-generation Frontier. Diehard fans will miss its straightforward boxy styling and even the analog interior appointments. It was a favorite among off-roaders specifically because of its spartan layout. For many, Nissan’s decision to discontinue the second generation Frontier is bittersweet, but anticipation for the upcoming redesigned 2022 Frontier quickly took over.
For 2022, Nissan offers an all-new Frontier lineup. Reimagined from the ground up, the 2022 Frontier still features echoes of previous generations, but an infusion of 21st-century technology and an angular exterior design leaves little doubt that this version is cutting edge. The Frontier is a mid-size pickup designed for durability.
The 2022 Frontier receives a powerful best-in-class 310-horsepower V6 engine that’s paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission. Together with an impressive 281 lb-ft of torque, this powertrain offers a max towing capacity of 6,720 pounds and a max payload of 1,610 pounds, plenty of power for hauling that boat or RV for a weekend road trip adventure.
Buyers can choose from two-wheel drive or all-wheel drive and an available off-roading package that equips the Frontier with all the gear necessary to tackle backcountry trails, including Bilstein shocks and skid plates. The Frontier comes in a simple four trim lineup: the base S, the upmarket SV, the Pro-X, and the Pro-4X. All trims are available in a two-door King Cab or a four-door crew cab configuration.
With a starting price of well under $30,000 and a huge list of standard features, the Frontier is a bargain for price-conscious shoppers. Those seeking more upgrades will love the graduated trim lineup and multiple equipment package add-ons. The high-end Pro 4X offers Bilstein Off-Road shocks, a 360-degree surround-view camera, skid plates, and special gauges that track 4x4 functions.
