2022 Nissan Frontier Powertrain and Towing
Here at Krenzen Auto in Duluth, MN, we work with Nissan, Honda, and Lincoln vehicles. One Nissan model remained largely unchanged for over a decade: the Nissan Frontier. That’s about to change. The 2022 Nissan Frontier is the newest generation of the popular and affordable light-duty truck.
Today, we’ll be taking a look at the newly redesigned 2022 Nissan Frontier powertrain. Keep reading to see the engine specs as well as things like towing capacity.
The 2022 Frontier has different towing capacities depending on the configuration you choose. They are:
- King Cab – 6,720 lbs
- Crew Cab – 6,570 lbs
- Crew Cab Long Bed – 6,460 lbs
Drivetrain also affects max towing capacity. Speaking of which…
The 2022 Frontier is powered by a 3.8L V6 engine. It produces 310 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque. The engine is mated to a nine-speed automatic. No other transmissions or engine are available. All 2022 Frontier trims are available in either RWD or 4×4, excluding the Pro-4X trim that comes standard with 4×4.
The Pro-4X trim comes with a lot of great off-road features, including the Intelligent Around View® Monitor with off-road mode, hill descent control, hill start assist, active brake limited slip, a real-time tire monitor, and off-road gauges. It also has off-road tires, Bilstein shocks, three separate skid plates, and an electronic locking rear differential.
