2022 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X named “Best Off-Road Truck” by

After weeks of real-world testing, the all-new 2022 Nissan Frontier PRO-4X was named “Best Off-Road Truck” by the editors of (TFL). Nissan’s completely reimagined Frontier mid-size pickup was evaluated against three other all-new 2022 model pickups in categories including off-road prowess, technology, performance, trailer towing and efficiency.

In winning the Best Off-Road Truck category, the TFL testers wrote: “The Frontier PRO-4X we tested has what it takes to tackle difficult trails. It has the locking rear differential, low-range transfer case, Bilstein shocks, and skid plates. It was a very good off-road pickup truck in its previous generation, and this new one is no different.”

During the multi-venue evaluation, the Frontier was challenged in areas such as Colorado’s Webster Pass and Tombstone Hill trails, where its mid-size proportions shone through on narrow trails – while the PRO-4X grade’s standard Bilstein® shock absorbers and aggressive all-terrain tires made “short work of most obstacles.”

“The TFLtruck staff are undisputed truck experts and truck enthusiasts, which makes this award special,” said Jared Haslam, vice president, Product and Services Planning, Nissan U.S. and Canada. “Our engineers worked hard to make sure that the new 2022 Frontier PRO-4X is more than ready for trails and trials like TFL threw its way and recognition such as this means a lot.”

The 2022 Frontier features a standard best-in-class1 310-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 and maximum 6,720-pound towing capacity. It builds on Nissan’s six-plus decades of mid-size truck leadership with a bold new exterior, adventure-oriented interior and the latest driver assistance and connectivity technologies. It is an authentic mid-size truck with a range of body, drivetrain and equipment configurations carefully selected to fit customer needs.

Along with its powerful new exterior, Frontier features an available, largest-in-class 9-inch color touchscreen display1 with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ standard on all models. Further making life easier, a largest-in-class2 standard 7.0-inch Advanced Driver Assist Display offers configurable information directly in front of the driver.

The 2022 Frontier is available in King Cab and Crew Cab body configurations, 4×2 and 4×4 drive and choice of S, SV PRO-4X (4×4 only) and new-for-2022 PRO-X (4×2 only).
