2022 Nissan Frontier NISMO Off-road
This specially prepared Rebelle Rally truck is showcasing many NISMO Off-road parts that you can buy and have installed at a local Nissan dealer. Some of these parts are already available and some are coming soon. Most noteworthy is the NISMO Off-road suspension kit that allows for more aggressive BFGoodrich KO2 all-terrain tires and NISMO Off-road AXIS wheels.
The race truck is based on a factory Frontier crew cab PRO-4X model. This means it has a 310 horsepower 3.8-liter V6 under the hood that is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. It has a robust 4×4 system with low-range gearing and locking rear differential.
The truck is also showcasing NISMO Off-road exhaust system and 4-inch off-road lights.
The truck is piloted by team Wild Grace with co-captains Lyn Woodward and Sedona Blinson.
The 2021 Rebelle Rally is the 5th annual running. It’s a women-only navigation rally. It’s the longest off-road endurance rally in the United States. The competition lasts eight days across more than 1,500 miles of Nevada, Arizona and California desert. It begins October 7th, 2021 at the Hoover Dam in Nevada and culminates October 16th, 2021 in California’s Imperial Dunes.
