If 2022 is the year of the truck, these well-appointed pickup truck options just make sense. While many safety systems and driver assistance systems are becoming more common, some require an additional package or two. Check out some of the pickup trucks available in 2022 with self-driving features.
What are the options for the 2022 Nissan Frontier pickup truck?
The 2022 Nissan Frontier is totally redesigned this year, AutoWeb says. Thanks to that, it comes equipped with tons of self-driving features some similar pickup truck might be missing. Automatic emergency braking (AEB) is included, but the $990 safety package really makes a difference. This includes blind-spot monitoring, lane-departure warning (LDW), adaptive cruise control, and rear automatic braking.
Base price: $27,840
Is 2022 Ford Maverick pickup truck available?
It is no surprise the 2022 Ford Maverick is on here. One of the most talked new pickup trucks of 2022, the Maverick has it all. Ford put a lot of thought into each detail of the truck, including the self-driving safety features. Ford includes AEB in all of the models. For an extra $540, Ford includes blind-spot monitoring and lane-keeping assist (LKA). Check out the $3,340 luxury package if you want adaptive cruise control. All of these options included still make the 2022 Ford Maverick under $30,000.
Base price: $19,995
You can call the Hyundai Santa Cruz a Sport Adventure Vehicle
Coming in hot behind the Maverick is the new 2022 Hyundai Santa Cruz, but don’t call it a truck. While the Santa Cruz looks like a truck and acts like a truck, Hyundai actually calls it a Sport Adventure Vehicle. Beyond that, it comes with AEB and LKA standard. Adaptive cruise control is achieved with a pricy jump to the top-of-the-line Limited model ($39,720). But that also gets you an upgraded engine and everything else you could want from a Sport Adventure Vehicle.
Base price: $23,990
The Honda Ridgeline is part truck, part SUV
The 2022 Honda Ridgeline is another one of those vehicles that has the looks of a truck but drives more like a comfortable SUV. Comparable to a midsize pickup truck, it comes with a lot of equipment standard already. Honda added adaptive cruise control, lane-keeping steering, and AEB. On levels above the base model, BSM is also included. The 2022 Honda Ridgeline pickup truck does it all and wraps it in a nice package, just don’t try to tow too much.
Base price: $36,890
It might be big, but the Ford F-150 pickup truck has a lot to offer
The 2022 Ford F-150 might be the most basic pickup truck on this list, and that’s saying a lot. The newest version of America’s favorite truck has more features than ever. BlueCreise is optional, which allows drivers to take hands off the wheels under certain conditions. Plus, it comes standard with AEB. All but the base model also come with LKA and BSM. Unfortunately, adaptive cruise control is a pretty costly addition.
Base price: $29,990
It seems that most pickup trucks are easing into the self-driving features in 2022. By 2023, more of these additions should start to be more frequent additions to the base models.
