2022 Nissan Frontier Enters the Modern Age with a Fresh Body

  • The first new Nissan Frontier in 16 years still rides on the outgoing model’s frame but gains all-new bodywork and a vastly improved interior.
  • Powering the 2022 Nissan Frontier is a 310-hp 3.8-liter V-6 mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
  • The 2022 Nissan Frontier will go on sale this summer and will likely start in the low $30,000s.

    After languishing in the marketplace for the better part of two decades, the Nissan Frontier compact pickup finally receives an overhaul for the 2022 model year. Although the third-generation truck is not entirely fresh—it still rides on a frame that dates back to the outgoing model’s 2005 debut—the new Frontier enters the modern age with all-new bodywork, a significantly updated interior, and a greater helping of technology.

    Nissan is still fuzzy on a number of details, including pricing, option packaging, and some final measurements. But we do know that the new Frontier

    Classic Japanese Sports Cars That Were Transformed With Badass Body Kits

    Over the last five decades, Japanese carmakers have released some of the greatest sports cars made in Asia. Though they were looked down upon when they were first released, customer needs eventually changed, and they became increasingly popular among middle-class motorists. As a result, some of the oldest Japanese sports cars (especially the ones that were only released in the Japanese domestic market) have become highly valuable.

    It is well-known that Japanese sports cars can be tuned to produce ridiculous amounts of power. Though some of these cars are now classics, they are still begging to be customized to look aggressive and be fast and mean machines that can terrorize modern supercars.

    10 Classic European Sports Cars That Were Transformed With Badass Body Kits

    It is fair to say that European carmakers have dominated the automobile industry for over a century. Whether it is the Germans with BMW or Porsche, or the British with Aston Martin and Rolls-Royce, there is absolutely no other carmaker in the world that has the same notoriety. Though classic European cars are the pinnacle of collectible cars, some of them deserve a little extra.

    Some of the classic European sports cars have become some of the best cars to modify. Though some of these classic European cars are notoriously underpriced, it does not represent a trend. Modifying classic cars from the old continent will require a serious budget. However, it is fair to say that the result will most likely be mind-blowing.

    How It’s Made – Most Expensive, Kevlar Body, Drift Spec Toyota Supra A90 Secrets

    Kristaps Bluss is just one of the pro drifters to have competed in an HGK Racing developed drift car over years, and he has had his fair share of success in the Formula Drift Series. But after a series of highly fascinating BMWs, it was time for a change. And with Russian drifter Nikita Shikov requiring a new car for the 2021 season, the Toyota Supra Jet project was initiated.

    It all started with a sideways shakedown on dirt roads, in a movie that was posted some time ago, and the Supra once again confirmed its potential. Asked about how the project debuted, the owner of HGK Racing, Harijs, said that “We wanted and did not want to build the Supra at the same time, but when it came to the shop we realized that, of course, the car was really good. I liked it!”

    The plan was all set,

    One in six UK car industry jobs could be lost, warns trade body

    The UK car industry’s trade body says one in six jobs are at risk of redundancy without help from the government in restarting production.

    The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) said emergency funding, permanent short-time working, business rate holidays, and VAT cuts are needed to stem the flow of job losses.

    Showrooms are reopening and production lines are restarting, it said.

    But more than 6,000 jobs have been lost in the automotive sector this month.

    In common with many manufacturers, carmakers have high fixed costs to pay, such as rent, during a period where sales are sharply down.

    And many workers remain furloughed as companies work out how to operate while allowing for social distancing.

    “A third of our workforce remains furloughed, and we want those staff coming back to work, not into redundancy,” said Mike Hawes, SMMT chief executive.

    “Government’s intervention has been unprecedented,” he added. “But
