Along with the maximum towing capacity comes the extra technology that the Nissan Frontier provides. Smart towing tech helps you tow more confidently, more safely, and ultimately more often. The Intelligent Around View Monitor helps you line up your towing hitch with ease and confidence, starting your journey out on a high note. Trailer Sway Control can help keep your camper/trailer in line, from either strong winds or bad roads. The largest available touch screen in its class showcases the NissanConnect with high-definition, high-resolution display. Your Frontier can even have its own wireless network with an available wi-fi hotspot feature. USB-A and USB-C ports keep all your devices charged and ready to go, and the wireless charging pad keeps your Qi-enabled smartphone charged up too.

2022 Frontier New Features

The new Off-Road Mode is available on Frontier PRO-4X, it automatically turns the cameras on when the vehicle is in 4LO, which is ideal for negotiating tight trails without having an external spotter. This helps protect the body of the truck from potential scrapes and dents. The PRO-X and PRO-4X grades from the 2022 Frontier also feature Bilstein Off Road shock absorbers to keep the ride smooth on and off the road.

Nissan Frontier Safety Features

Off road, you need more than just your eyes facing forward – you need to see all around you. The Intelligent Around View Monitor provides a virtual composite 360 degree bird’s-eye view of your Frontier – and Moving Object Detection will keep you updated if something comes into your path or gets too close to you. All of these features combined ensure that the Frontier performs both inside and out, both on and off the road. Check out our selection of trucks at Rairdon’s Nissan of Auburn today!
