For nearly 15 years, the Nissan Frontier has established itself as a capable and trustworthy mid-size pickup truck on American highways. The Frontier fought to stay in the race despite serious design issues and stiff competition in the mid-size truck segment. That, however, is no longer the case. To mention a few highlights, the Frontier returns for 2022 with a revamped exterior appearance, tempting accent lines, new safety systems, and an enhanced infotainment system. When properly outfitted, the Frontier can compete with, and even exceed, the Chevy Colorado, Ford Ranger, Toyota Tacoma, and Honda Ridgeline, thanks to these enhancements.
