Nissan just unveiled the all-new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder crossover, introducing a fresh fifth generation for the nameplate. The all-new Nissan Pathfinder is set to rival the Chevy Traverse and three-row GMC Acadia in the segment.
Outside, the latest Nissan Pathfinder features brand-new styling highlighted by a reshaped fascia with blocky headlamps and slim lighting signatures, plus a V-motion grille treatment. LED lighting is standard.
The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder offers seating for up to eight passengers, and includes the option for second-row captain’s chair, if desired. Customers have four trim levels to choose from – S, SV, SL, and Platinum. Cargo volume is set at 16.6 cubic-feet behind the third row, 45 cubic-feet behind the second row, and 80.5 cubic-feet behind the first row.
Available features include a 10.8-inch Head-Up Display, as well as a 12.3-inch digital dashboard. ProPILOT driver assist features are standard, as is a suite of safety tech features, such as Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and Rear Automatic Braking. Seating material options include cloth, leather, and quilted semi-aniline leather.
Under the hood, the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is equipped with the same powertrain as the previous model year vehicle, which introduced a new 3.5L V6 producing 284 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque. The ‘six connects to an all-new nine-speed automatic transmission, which replaces the outgoing model’s CVT.
The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is also offered with Intelligent 4WD, which includes a 7-position Drive and Terrain Mode Selector. Buyers can alternatively select a front-wheel-drive configuration, if desired.
The all-new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder offers the same towing capacity as the previous model year, with a max towing capacity rated at 6,000 pounds.
Sales of the all-new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder are scheduled to kick off this summer.
