Nissan Future  

Nissan is making a splash in the auto industry this year with some noteworthy changes. The automaker is mostly updating its lineup of vehicles by improving upon several of its most popular existing models and adding some new cars. The automaker is modifying its lineup to be more competitive in the electric cars category and bring more competition to other market segments such as SUVs and trucks.

Nissan's New Era

Nissan Leaf

One of Nissan's first electric cars is the Leaf. The Leaf is a small hatchback powered by electricity. Historically the Leaf operated with one battery, but it is now available with a choice of two. The 2021 Leaf is the most connected Leaf that Nissan has produced yet. It features a user-friendly touchscreen interface that offers Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, and smartphone compatibility. Hands-free access is a highlight of the infotainment system, which also comes with Nissan Intelligent Mobility.

Nissan Frontier

The Nissan Frontier is already a competitive pickup truck, but it gets updates for the 2022 model year that enhance its appeal. The Frontier is powered by a 3.8L V6 engine that uses gasoline. It has a power output of 310 HP, and it generates 281 LB-FT of torque. On the Frontier, rear-wheel drive is standard on most models except for the Pro 4-X, a new trim level outfitted with four-wheel drive. The Frontier has an automatic transmission. It also has all-terrain tires and comes in a crew cab configuration.

Nissan Z Proto Sports Car

You can expect the classic sports car proportions: a short rear deck with a long hood on this latest iteration of the Nissan Z. Z Proto is enhanced with classic Z styling elements projecting a modern yet immediately recognized as the Nissan Z. The Nissan Z Proto is powered by a twin-turbo V6 engine delivering up to 400 HP with a 6-speed manual transmission.

Nissan Pathfinder

A redesigned Pathfinder hits the markets in 2022 with a bolder and more chiseled exterior combined with some updates to its cabin. The 2022 Pathfinder uses the same engine as the 2021 model, but it has a new nine-speed transmission. It leads its class in towing capabilities with 6,000 pounds in pulling power. Pathfinder receives updates to its technology as well. The previous single-screen touchscreen interface is now replaced with a dual-screen configuration. The gear shifter is also relocated to make gear shifting easier for the driver. For 2022 the Pathfinder is loaded with technology that includes standard Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. Along with the regular touchscreen, you'll also get a digital instrument display cluster.

Nissan Ariya

Another significant change for Nissan in 2022 is the introduction of a new car to the market. The new vehicle is called the Ariya, and it is Nissan's all-new electric-powered crossover SUV. It has a progressive interior design with a horizontal dashboard display that has two screens. Nissan's latest safety technology is added to the Ariya as well.
