The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder will start from $30,890, including destination charges, when it hits showrooms later this year. (By the way, the Pathfinder’s been around for 60 years.)
Nissan isn’t giving the SUV a complete overhaul like it has to some of its other lineup recently. But Nissan did spend some time integrating some of the brand’s newer styling elements into the Pathfinder’s front end. They include Nissan’s signature boomerang-shaped headlights, “V-Motion” grille and new LED daytime running lights. A more aggressive bumper along with LED taillights round out the rear. Oh, and there are new wheels, too.
Under the hood it features a new more powerful 3.5-liter V6 good for 284-horsepower, up from the previous 260. It will tow 6,000 pounds, when properly equipped. That’s a 1,000 pound boost over the last model. New convenience technology includes a motion-activated liftgate. Side mirrors also now come standard with integrated turn indicator lights. New driver safety technology includes forward emergency braking, intelligent cruise control and around view monitor with moving object detection.
If you want to go with all-wheel drive, the base price kicks up to $32,670. In all there are eight trims to choose from and the top-of-the-line AWD Platinum takes you to $44,550.
