Going truck shopping next month? One of your selections in the midsize pickup world can be the 2022 Nissan Frontier, being rolled out in September with its own birthday present, 310 standard horsepower, best in class among these trucks. The opening gambit is $27,840 for a Frontier S King Cab, representing the Frontier line’s entry model, which means that even the base truck gets a stretched cab.
For most of us, the Frontier will be offered in either King Cab or Crew Cab versions, at the S and SV trim levels. Crew Cabs can be ordered in both short- and long-wheelbase models, with the longer ones offering a full six-foot cargo bed. At the top of the line is the PRO-4X model, which adds Bilstein shock absorbers, an electronically locking rear differential, and four underbody skidplates. A two-wheel-drive PRO-X truck is new for 2022. In any case, the direct-injection engine is mated to a standard nine-speed automatic transmission.
