Under the Hood
The 2022 Nissan Frontier is powered by a 3.8-liter direct-injection V6 engine producing 310 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque, combined with a 9-speed automatic transmission. The engine and transmission were developed specifically for the U.S. market, sporting an increase of 49 horsepower over the outgoing 4.0-liter V6 engine. When equipped with 4WD, Frontier features a shift-on-the-fly 4-wheel-drive system with 2WD/4HI/4LO modes and an electronically controlled transfer case. Hill descent control is standard on all variants with 4WD, and an available 4-wheel limited-slip system helps transfer power to wheels with more grip. The PRO-4X adds an electronic locking differential, Bilstein off-road shocks and underbody skidplates.
