No I did not get to try the new Frontier they look really nice and so does the interior and from what I seen on test reviews it seems pretty happy towing. The bad is the MPG is pretty low the same guy who tested the Ridgeline on the highway real world mpg testing only got about 21.5 mpg on his test.I'm starting to see better MPG's after 6000 miles and summer arriving. Cumputer says 23 average the last 300 miles mixed city/highway driving. It's impressive for a heavy truck that's not aerodynamic. When I really gas 'er it has this loud, metallic sound of pistons slamming up and down. Maybe it's a characteristic of the direct injection, giving it that hard edge sound. But I rarely drive her hard like that.
The transmission is really smooth and dialed-in to all kinds of stopping and starting, cruising, whatever.
The seats are very supportive, and tight feeling, but lots of cushion in them, yet still firm.
The stock stereo sound in the 2022 Sport is good. Not great, but pretty good. Good enough for me playing jazz, and pop tunes, and radio. The interface sucks though. Laggy awful touchscreen.
Did you drive the new Nissan Frontier? I wanted to test drive it, but they weren't available at the time so bought the Ridgeline.
Compared to a 4x4 Titan in real world driving get 19-20 mpg on the highway in the same test so other than how crazy expensive and large full sized trucks are it seems like Nissan could have done a better job on the Frontier engine or maybe have a 4 Cylinder turbo charged choice.
