Nissan has quietly raised prices on its newest pickup. Based on our analysis, the redesigned 2022 Frontier is up to $300 more expensive following a price increase that rolled out earlier this month. However, a closer look finds that the all-new truck will continue to undercut a key competitor heading into the new year.

According to Nissan's latest pricing guide, the cheapest 2022 Frontier, the S 4x2 King Cab, now starts at $29,315 including a destination charge of $1,175. That's $300 more than the truck's MSRP of $29,015 when it debuted this past August. The Crew Cab is now priced from $30,615, a $100 price hike from $30,515.

Price increases are generally normal around this time of year, but it's unusual to see a change this quickly after a vehicle's arrival. Although we doubt that a $300 price increase will cause truck shoppers to choose a competitor, the move comes amid an inventory shortage that has been resulting in higher car prices.

At $29,315, the cheapest 2022 Frontier remains slightly more affordable than a comparable 2022 Toyota Tacoma. For reference, the V6-powered SR Access Cab has an MSRP of $30,175, or $860 more than the Frontier. If you're looking to get a deal, the Frontier may be a better value based on current offers.

According to dealer incentive bulletins, Nissan is offering 0% APR for 36 months on the Frontier in most parts of the country. In contrast, the 2022 Tacoma appears to have no such offers right now. While it may look like Nissan isn't offering financing deals beyond 36 months, there are actually hidden deals available.

For example, NMAC is offering an unadvertised "Dealer Choice" deal of 1.9% APR for 60 months or 2.5% for up to 75. The catch is that dealers are being allowed to mark-up these rates by as much as 2%. As a result, your results may vary depending on how good of a rate your local dealer is willing to offer.

Current Nissan offers end on January 3rd, 2022.
