2022 Nissan Frontier Stays True to Its Heritage
With more than 6 decades of experience bringing compact and mid-size trucks to Canadian customers, the 2022 Nissan Frontier brings what drivers need to take on both weekday work and weekend adventures.
The new Frontier design is inspired by the Nissan Hardbody, a truck that burnished its rough and rugged reputation in the 1980s and 1990s.
Building on a proven chassis and frame, the engineering team refined and tuned the powertrain, steering and suspension.
The standard 310 hp 3.8 l V6 is rated at 281 lb ft of torque. The 9-speed automatic transmission is designed to maximize efficiency and provide strong acceleration. The hydraulic rack-and-pinion steering has been retuned to provide better on-center feel while the steering gear ratio has been increased by 16%.
All Frontier models sold in Canada feature a shift-on-the-fly 4-wheel drive system with a 4-wheel limited-slip system, which helps transfer power to the drive wheels with more grip on low traction surfaces. The PRO-4X model adds an electronic locking differential, Bilstein off-road shock absorbers and underbody skid plates.
Towing capacity is rated at up to 2,944 kg (when properly equipped). New for 2022 is standard Trailer Sway Control, which detects sway and automatically applies the brakes to eliminate it.
Addressing common customer needs, designers gave the new Frontier a new interior that combines versatility with functionality.
A 5’ bed is standard on the PRO-4X Crew Cab with a 6’ bed standard on Crew Cab SV Long Wheelbase models. A 6’ bed is also standard on all King Cab models.
