If you are searching for a great truck or three-row SUV designed to get the job done and offers durability to handle outdoor activities like hunting and fishing, check out the award-winning 2022 Nissan Frontier and 2022 Pathfinder. Both Nissan models earned MotorWeek Drivers’ Choice Awards.
The 2022 Pathfinder earned the award for Best Midsize Utility for 2022, while the 2022 Frontier took home the title of Best Midsize Truck.
2022 Nissan Pathfinder
The Pathfinder earned praise for its enduring family-friendly features, practicality, and appealing design. The 2022 model won over the judges because it took these beloved features up a notch.
“We have always been Nissan Pathfinder fans. While not always the flashiest of SUVs, the nameplate excels in delivering what family buyers need: a practical, durable, attractive, well-thought-out utility,” said John H. Davis, host and creator of MotorWeek.
2022 Nissan Frontier
The 2022 Nissan Frontier swayed the judges with its 6,000-pound towing capacity, updated cabin, and potent V6 powertrain, which comes standard on the well-equipped truck. The 2022 model also impressed with its new hydraulic mounts.
“Nissan has done a great job of modernizing and toughening up the Frontier without changing its overall character or doing anything to alienate current fans,” according to Davis.
Nissan has performed exceptionally well in the 2021 J.D. Power Initial Quality Study. The J.D. Power IQS records owners’ satisfaction with their vehicles during the first 90 days of driving them. Based on problems reported, each vehicle receives a PPH score, which represents the number of problems noted per 100 vehicles.
The all-new Rogue® posted improvements while the Sentra®, TITAN®, and Versa® ranked in their segments’ top three spots. The Altima® and Murano® earned the top spot in their respective segments. The Maxima® not only won its segment, but the sophisticated sedan also earned bragging rights as the best-performing vehicle in the automotive industry. As the top performer in the 2021 IQS study, the Maxima had the lowest number of problems of any vehicle evaluated.
“Delivering top quality for our customers has been a key element in the total brand transformation we call Nissan NEXT,” said Mike Colleran, senior vice president of Nissan U.S. Marketing and Sales. “This performance is possible by a united design, engineering, and manufacturing team focused on making the best vehicles for our customers.”
The top-placing Maxima is manufactured at the automaker’s assembly plant in Smyrna, Tennessee. The plant performed so well in the IQS study it took home the Gold Plant Quality Award. In the mass-market rankings, Nissan placed fourth. In 2020, the brand took the 11th spot.
It’s almost fall, which means your newly licensed teen driver will be back to school and ready for their very own ride. After you finish sobbing and wondering how your baby could possibly be ready for this level of independence, learn why the Nissan Altima, Murano, and Rogue make excellent vehicles for teen drivers.
The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS), a non-profit organization created to help reduce deadly vehicle crashes, is one of the most trusted organizations in the automotive industry because of its scientific approach to ranking vehicles based on safety. Each year, the IIHS makes recommendations of the best new and used vehicles for teens to help parents make good decisions for their new drivers.
This year, the IIHS named three Nissan vehicles to its 2021 honor roll of Recommended New & Used Vehicles for Teens. The 2021 Murano crossover and the Altima sedan, both of which received a Top Safety Pick+ from the organization, were named as two of the best new vehicles for teen drivers. On the pre-owned side, the IIHS recommended several model years of the Rogue and Murano crossovers because of their excellent crash test ratings and affordable price.

The IIHS has two awards: Top Safety Pick and Top Safety Pick+. A Top Safety Pick must earn a Good rating in six crash test categories and earn at least an Acceptable score for its headlights. To earn the Plus, the vehicle also has to earn an Advanced or Superior rating for its available front crash-prevention tech.
The Nissan Sentra compact sedan was named a Top Safety Pick, and four 2021 Nissan models have earned the designation of Top Safety Pick+, including the Altima mid-size sedan, the Maxima full-size sedan, and two mid-size SUVs, the Rogue and Murano.
The Rogue and Murano in particular had the highest possible ratings in every single category, from all six crashworthiness tests to headlights to front crash prevention. Both crossovers also received a G+ rating in the LATCH ease-of-use category, making them perfect options for young parents.
All five models come standard with Nissan Safety Shield® 360, a suite of driver-assist and active safety technologies. These include the Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection necessary to earn the Top Safety Pick+ award, as well as Rear Automatic Braking, Blind Spot Warning, and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert, among others.
