2022 Nissan Pathfinder Finds New Road & Alt Route Path
In fast evolving SUV culture … the 35 year history of the Nissan Pathfinder qualifies it for the pantheon adventure lifestyle vehicles.
It went full circle from a cool bare-bones alt-roader to a top-selling cushy max cup-holder count suburban family hauler.
In the newest version of the Pathfinder, Nissan has sought to return this model to its eponymous mission of blazing trails … with the advantage of luxury level interior amenities and tech like the 12.3” digital dashboard, big head-up display and a 9” center infotainment touchscreen.
The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder design is bold, trim, elegant skin and new front grille, logo and front and rear lighting treatments. It follows through with a 284-horsepower 3.5-liter Direct Injection V6 is strong for highway maneuvering with enough torque to handle off-road romps.
Paired with a 9 speed auto, 7-position Drive and Terrain modes and oil pressure reading direct coupling 4WD system, our Pathfinder test experience offered high confidence in the remote rough spots of the Montana mountains. This double duty SUV boasts 6,000 lb towing capacity making it a high value buy for a loaded Platinum edition at under $52,000.
