After more than 16 years without a major update, the Nissan Frontier is getting a new look inside and out. Although the frame and chassis are the same as the 2020 model, the sheet metal is all new and the interior gets a much-needed upgrade.
The old Frontier was long past its prime, with a bare-bones interior, a rough ride, poor fuel economy, and lackluster crash-test results. The 2022 Frontier’s fuel-economy numbers aren’t out, and the new model has yet to be crash-tested, but forward collision warning (FCW) and automatic emergency braking (AEB) with pedestrian detection now come standard. So does a damped tailgate that won't slam open, tons of interior storage, and Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility.
