So dated already. Minimum effort but unlike Toyota who gets away with it, Nissan can't. Rule of thumb is that the newest entry into its respective segment should be the best given they had everything to benchmark against. When its not the best, like the Frontier here, their really is no excuse. Funny that in 2009, Nissan made a 3.7L V6 with 332hp while in 2020/2021 Nissan makes a 3.8L V6 with 310hp.
Re: "Nissan is aiming the PRO-4X at the heart of the truck enthusiast market: people who want a truck to act like a truck" Really? If that's the case, then offer a manual transmission option, for those of us who enjoy rowing thru the gears.
I’m ok with the design and I don’t think it looks dated at all. I want a truck that looks like a truck. Fuel economy in a midsized pickup should be better than my eco boost F150 though. I think the 2023 Ranger due out sometime next year will blow this away.
I own a 2022 and the off road features aren't protected like they should be. I drive on 2 miles of gravel and in 600 kms paint chips running up along back doors. I can see getting stone chips along the bottom but not up along the opening of back doors. Checked with Nissan they tell you how to fix it with 3m or steps. I can see that it can happen to but not in 600 kms at 50kms an hour on the gravel. As advertised as off road but without good protection won't have any paint left along the back door openings.
