Production has started on the new Nissan Frontier, which has been redesigned for 2022. The midsized pickup is being assembled using collaborative robot technology in Canton, Mississippi.
The Nissan Frontier is all-new for 2022 with a rugged exterior. The front end presents a powerful presence with a much larger grille, a slimmed-down hood, and angular headlights. The new Frontier is the perfect truck for city driving or weekends in the country with a standard 3.8-liter V6 engine delivering 310 horsepower, more than any other truck in its class. The nine-speed automatic transmission gives the Frontier powerful acceleration and good fuel efficiency. This rugged truck has Nissan’s latest infotainment and safety technology, with a standard 7-inch Advanced Driver Assist Screen or an available 9-inch color screen.
The Frontier is built in the USA in Canton, Mississippi, and its engine comes from the Nissan Power Train Plant in Decherd, Tennessee. Nissan has increased the role of robots in the Frontier assembly process. This collaborative robot technology, which Nissan calls cobot, is designed to improve the health and safety of the Canton plant workers by reducing repetitive stress and other injuries. Cobot technology is also increasing efficiency and vehicle consistency and quality. The Frontier is expected in U.S. and Canadian showrooms in late summer 2021.
