2022 Nissan Frontier vs. Its Competition

2022 Nissan Frontier
Robert Duffer Robert Duffer Senior Editor

The mid-size pickup truck segment teems with new and redesigned models, with several more on the way, including electric models.

The refreshed 2021 Honda Ridgeline precedes the Frontier with a rugged new look but the same comfy interior and soft on-road manners, but with all the small truck capability.

The bestselling Toyota Tacoma soldiers on as the tried-and-true pickup that’ll run forever, even as its standard equipment pales to competitors.

The TRD Pro and Jeep Gladiator will square off against the Pro-X models for off-road agility, where this segment shines brightest.

The Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon siblings prepare for a redesign that will hopefully upgrade their safety ratings.

The Ford Ranger does just fine, without standing out or slinking in any way, until the Raptor model arrives.
