The third-generation of the Frontier has been revealed by Nissan, and it impresses with its new exterior styling and interior redesign. Let’s take a look at what Nissan has in store for us with the new 2022 Nissan Frontier. 

The first thing you’ll notice is the radical redesign of the exterior. The last time the Frontier received a major styling change was 20 years ago, although Nissan has provided the Frontier with tweaks and changes over the years. The new Frontier has an aesthetically pleasing blocky front grille, with new headlights and flared front fenders that give it a tough demeanor. The interior has received some major changes as well, bringing in new materials and soft-touch surfaces, and more contemporary features that make the new Frontier feel more modern. 

Nissan’s patented Zero Gravity seats are present, which provide maximum comfort for you and your passengers. Interior cubby storage includes a bin on top of the dashboard and a place to store items under the back seat. The truck offers two wheelbase lengths that support a short and long cargo bed. The former measures just under five feet and the latter extends just over six.

An 8.0-inch touchscreen is standard, and a 9.0-inch touchscreen is optional for higher trim levels. Standard connectivity features include Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as several charging outlets, one of which is a USB-C port. The Frontier can also be had with a subscription-based Wi-Fi hotspot and wireless smartphone charging. For all you audiophiles out there Nissan has made a nine-speaker Fender unit available for additional cost. 

Powering the new 2022 Frontier is a naturally aspirated 3.8-liter V6 that generated 310 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque. This engine pairs with a nine-speed automatic transmission and rear or four-wheel drive. The towing capacity of this mid-size truck tops out at 6,720 pounds, and has a max payload of 1610 pounds. These numbers are perfect for people that want to tow their boat or trailer. Fuel economy numbers have yet to be released. The 2021 model did 18 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, so it’s likely the 2022 model will do similar numbers.

Check out the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder

The Nissan Pathfinder is a three-row crossover SUV that can seat up to eight passengers. Nissan has redesigned the Pathfinder for 2022, receiving a new exterior and interior packed full of the latest innovations in luxury, performance, and safety. Let’s take a look at what Nissan has in store for us with the brand new 2022 Pathfinder

You’ll find a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 284 horsepower under the hood, which is paired with a CVT. Nissan’s Intelligent 4WD is featured, which can shift up to 50% of the 259 lb-ft of torque the engine produces to the rear axle. You’ll also have the option to shift through seven terrain modes, being able to optimize the Pathfinder for any terrain situation, whether it’s mud or snow. The mileage is unknown as of now, although the previous model of the Pathfinder does 23 mpg, so we can expect it to be somewhat close to that number. The 2022 Pathfinder will also be able to tow up to 6,000 pounds when properly equipped, meaning you’ll be able to tow most trailers and boats.

The interior of the Pathfinder was designed to fit the family and to be comfortable. The seats are adorned in either cloth, leather, or quilted semi-aniline leather, depending on which trim level you go for. Child safety seats can remain in place behind the passenger and driver seat, and the second row seats can be tipped and slid forward with a button push, making it easy for third-row passengers to enter and exit. There’s plenty of space for your cargo in the 2022 Pathfinder. Clever cargo spaces such as the tiered bridge console up front optimize the interior space, and increase total interior volume from 154 cubic feet on the 2020 model to 164.6 on the 2022 Pathfinder. 

You’ll find either an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, or an increased 9.0-inch touchscreen, depending on which trim you get. A 7.0-inch digital vehicle info display splits the analog gauges, or the whole dash display can go digital with an available 12.3-inch display. On Platinum trims, a large 10.8-inch head-up display can project vehicle info out on the road ahead. The Pathfinder is equipped with a large arsenal of safety features including front and rear automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitors, lane-departure warnings, and automatic high beams. Optional safety gear includes a surround-view camera system, active lane control, and adaptive cruise control down to a stop.

The price of the 2022 Pathfinder has not yet been released, but we expect it to be in the range of $30,000 to $50,000 depending on the trim you go for. Stay tuned for more info regarding the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder

Nissan Ariya Front

New Nissan EV in the Works

Nissan is debuting their major EV later this year, the Nissan Ariya. This new EV will join the Leaf in Nissan’s electric lineup, but it’s reported that yet another new EV isn’t too far away. Let’s break down all the information we have so far regarding this new EV from Nissan.

This upcoming EV, which has yet to have had a name released to the public, will use a shortened version of the Ariya’s CMF-EV platform. The goal of this new EV is to be a more compact version of the Ariya. It’s said that this EV will be around the same size as the Nissan Juke, putting it squarely in the subcompact SUV market. The new EV will also carry over the Ariya’s E-4ORCE all-wheel-drive system.

Nissan will use a smaller version of the Ariya’s battery pack for this new EV, meaning though the interior of this new EV may be similar in size to the Juke, it’s expected to have more space for both passengers and cargo. It’s expected to start at around $41,000 and be released first in the U.K and Europe. Nissan hasn’t confirmed if this new EV will be released in the states, although it’s not too far-fetched to see a U.S. release considering the explosion of popularity in the EV market.

That’s all the information we have right now, but more will likely come out in the following months, so stay tuned!

2021 Nissan Rogue vs Toyota RAV4

The 2021 Nissan Rogue is an elite crossover SUV that can compete with any competitor. The Toyota RAV4 has been a top choice in the crossover market for many years now, but the Rogue has come to take the crown. Let’s compare the 2021 Rogue and the 2021 RAV4 and see which crossover comes out on top 

We’ll start the comparison by exploring the interiors of these SUVs. The RAV4 offers 37.7 of headroom and 41.0 inches of legroom in the front of the cabin, and 39.5 inches of available headroom and 37.8 inches of legroom in the rear seating area. The materials that make up the interior feel cheaply made when considering the price, having plastic panels exposed and no offering of leather seats on any trim levels. As for cargo space the RAV4 offers 37.5 cu-ft of space behind the second row. When the seats are folded down you can accommodate 69.8 cu-ft of luggage.

The Rogue’s interior on the other hand gives an air of luxury that the RAV4 can’t match, while also having more space for both your passengers and your luggage. The first thing you’ll be greeted with when you step into the driver seat of the 2021 Rogue is Nissan’s new 12 inch customizable digital gauge cluster display. Next you’ll notice the leather seats and the fact that all touch surfaces were upholstered in leather or soft-touch materials. An extra two inches of head and legroom is available in the front, and a massive panoramic sunroof and lower dropped sets give the cabin a more open feel. As for cargo space, the Rogue’s trunk can store 39.3 cu-ft of luggage with ease with all rows up. Folding the second row down increases the luggage capacity to 74.1 cu-ft.

When it comes to the powertrain both these crossovers are pretty much equal. Both share a 2.5-liter naturally aspirated inline-four. The RAV4 slightly edges out the Rogue in horsepower and torque, but it’s not going to be noticeable unless you plan on drag racing these SUVs. These two crossovers also have similar fuel economy numbers, with the Rogue doing 28 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway, and the RAV4 doing 27 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway. 

If you want a crossover SUV that is stylish, luxurious, and practical, then the 2021 Rogue is perfect for you. Starting at $25,750 the Rogue is a fairly inexpensive, extremely high quality crossover that will satisfy you and your family. If you want to give the Rogue a test drive come on down to Briggs Nissan. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff would love to help you out.
