I love two-seater, RWD convertibles and own a 2004 Mazdaspeed Miata for pavement fun and a lifted 2001 Miata for pre-running. I race air-cooled Volkswagens in desert races like the Mint 400 and the Baja 1000. I have won the Rebelle Rally, seven-day navigational challenge, twice and I am the only driver to compete in an EV, the Rivian R1T.

On Thursday,  presented a double-barreled debut, when both the 2022 Frontier pickup truck and 2022 Pathfinder crossover SUV greeted the world.

The long-awaited midsize Frontier replaces the old truck that's been on sale since 2005. The new truck's engine actually debuted in the 2020 Frontier and it's a peach, producing 310 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque, mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The new truck looks to get some smart technology upgrades, with a modern and more robust infotainment system, and a sharp appearance. Driver's aids see a huge bump as well. 

As for the Pathfinder, it isn't quite as long in the tooth, but it's still been in need of an update. The current, fourth-generation crossover has fallen way behind the smaller in sales and has been a back-of-the-pack competitor with three-row SUVs from , , Kia , Subaru , Toyota and more.
