The pickup truck segment is getting better and better. The 2022 Nissan Frontier Pro-X is the newest model that will arrive with plenty of exciting stuff. Every manufacturer is focusing on the pickup truck segment and the goal is to provide all sorts of models. That includes everything from the stylish pickup to the all-electric and off-road variants.
The Frontier Pro-X is an off-road version, similar to the existing Pro-4X model. A couple of things sets them apart but the Pro-X model will be unique and modern. It comes with a single powertrain option and it is a potent V6 engine. The sales will begin later in 2021 and here’s everything we know about this new truck.
2022 Frontier Pro-X Design
In terms of design, the new 2022 Nissan Frontier Pro-X looks very attractive and unique. This variant comes with a couple of brand-new exterior features and it will also wear the same upgrades as the regular Frontier pickup. However, this is an off-road-oriented truck so it comes with beefier shocks and Dana rear axle. Interestingly, Pro-X offers only one skid plate while the Pro-4X variant offers more.
On the other hand, Frontier Pro-X wears LED daytime running lights and LED headlights. Additionally, Nissan will provide various accents and the recognizable “lava red” logo treatment. The result is a hot pickup truck with an athletic stance and aggressive design.
Sporty Interior Design
The forthcoming 2022 Nissan Pro-X will offer a comfortable interior with plenty of modern amenities. And like the regular Frontier, Pro-X will feature the same seating layout. On the other hand, Pro-X is equipped with more premium materials and more standard features. An 8-inch touchscreen comes as standard and a 9-inch display will be optional.
Android Auto and Apple CarPlay are also available, along with the USB-C ports, Wi-Fi hotspot, and even wireless smartphone charging. Thanks to that, Frontier Pro-X offers more stuff than some popular crossovers and SUVs. The cabin is unique thanks to the exclusive interior color schemes.
Powerful V6 Engine
As we already said, the 2022 Nissan Frontier Pro-X will offer a single powertrain option. It is a potent 3.8-liter V6 engine with 310 horsepower. Many fans hoped to see a diesel engine but that won’t happen. This proven V6 unit comes with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The shifting is smooth and the ride comfort is great.
A two-wheel-drive setup is available as standard and Pro-X comes with beefier shocks. On the other hand, the Pro-4X model offers a four-wheel-drive system. Lastly, Pro-X Frontier comes with a Dana rear axle, which will improve the truck’s off-road capability.
2022 Nissan Frontier Pro-X Release Date, Price
The price of the brand-new 2022 Nissan Frontier Pro-X will cost $36,000. To compare, base model starts at around $28,000 and Pro-4X version $39,000. The sales will begin later in 2021. However, this truck could arrive in the first quarter of 2022 if the situation with pandemic continues. This new pickup truck will rival Toyota Tacoma and its off-road variants.
