Nissan has begun production of the all-new 2022 Nissan Frontier at Canton Vehicle Assembly Plant. Frontier has been built at Nissan Canton since 2012, with its engine produced at Nissan Decherd Powertrain Plant in Decherd, Tennessee.
The Frontier features a powerful front end with a large grille and chiseled hood, framed by precision interlocking headlights. Every Frontier–4x2 or 4x4–comes with a standard 3.8-liter direct-injection V6 engine with 310 horsepower. The engine is matched to a 9-speed automatic transmission.
Frontier's interior includes a standard 7-inch Advanced Driver Assist Display and an available 9-inch color touchscreen. Standard technology includes Apple CarPlay and Android AutoTM, with WiFi and wireless charging available. Nissan Safety Shield 360 is available on every trim.
Nissan has deployed robot (or cobot) technology to assemble the all-new Frontier. These robots support process factory automation, resulting in improved safety performance and less strain on workers. The technology is being used to assist with a number of jobs to ensure repetitive tasks are done the same way every time, increasing overall operational efficiency and vehicle quality for customers.
The Frontier arrives in dealer showrooms in late summer 2021.
"Nissan's decision to build the 2022 Frontier in Mississippi is a testament to our successful partnership and my administration's commitment to increasing high-tech, advanced manufacturing job opportunities for Mississippians," said Governor Tate Reeves. "I'm proud that the 2022 Frontier rolling off the assembly line and onto American roads will be synonymous with Mississippi. Mississippi continues to be at the forefront of innovation and new technology and is quickly becoming a sought-after hub for the automotive industry."
