2022 Nissan Frontier: new after 15 years...

 




With these new photos, we finally get to see what the all-new Nissan Frontier will look like for 2022.
The new generation is getting a total makeover and a more aggressive look. With a huge grille.
(Although thse pix do look quite different from the spy shots we have seen before of the new Frontier)

The new Frontier will be powered by a 3.8 Liter engine with at least 310HP and a 9 speed automatic.
(that combo could also end up in the new 2022 Pathfinder)

Nissan still managed to move over 72 000 of the current one in 2019. Which isn't that terrible considering how old it is... (The Chevrolet Colorado sold over 155 000 units)

I think it has a very generic pick-up truck look. And I am not a fan of huge grilles. (But I guess that's what 'truck people' seem to like). At least, with a new platform and powertrain, the specs will bring the Pathfinder into the 21st Century. If not visually.

THAT IS THE NAVARA, not the Frontier. Look back at the Frontier spy shots, this is not it.

Ignore my previous post, I missed the "Frontier" badging on the front. That said, I still don't think this is the North American Frontier and is instead a Navara named Frontier for other markets. This is definitely not the same vehicle as this: https://www.motor1.com/photos/738329/2021-nissan-frontier-spy-shots/

Additional frame of reference - the Nissan video teasing their new vehicles. Shape, LEDs, etc lines up with the Navara being teased, not the Frontier. Perhaps the Navara is really being branded as a Frontier somewhere other than North America. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aiqOLRJi7nU

That rear 3/4 view looks like a Tacoma......why oh why Nissan?

This obviously says Frontier everywhere but it still doesn't match AT ALL the spy pics. I'm confused....

Navarro based EMEA and AP Frontier. Different from blocky American Frontier

I own a 2019 Nissan Frontier 4X4. I think the 2022 model looks like a Ford Raptor body style and don’t like it.

This is the Navara, I guess they will start calling it the Frontier in some markets:

I'm now driving my 4th frontier in 27 yrs. I love the 5 speed manual transmission. I understand 2019 was last yr for manual transmission

In Mexico and other countries it is called the Frontier. But it is not the same as the one we are getting in the United States.
