The vehicle we are about to present this time has been one of the first Nissan’s SUVs. It is the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder, and it’s coming better than ever.
Exterior and interior changes
Even if its popularity is constant during the years Nissan keeps surprising us with its improvements and changes. This amazing car has been in production for 30 years since its first debut. This time the new Pathfinder will get some additional trim levels and many new features. At first, the new 2017 Nissan Pathfinder will be built on the Nissan’s D platform. The exterior of this seven-passenger SUV will suffer some nice changes which will make it more attractive and more powerful than before. In order to reduce the weight of the vehicle, Nissan’s engineers have used lightweight materials in its construction. With these materials (aluminum, chrome and many more) its weight has been reduced for 4.000 pounds. On the front end of the car we will find reshaped grille. The grille will be bigger than before and also rounder. An extra tailgate and redesigned bumper will be the most important changes that have happened on the rear part of this SUV. LED powered lights and alloy wheels will come as standard. Interior of the new Pathfinder will be improved as usual. It will be upholstered with the highest quality materials and equipped with the latest standard and safety technology features.
2017 Nissan Pathfinder engine options
We are still not sure which power option will be placed under the hood of the new 2017 Nissan Pathfinder. One thing we know for sure – it will have to be a quite big and powerful engine in order to fulfill Pathfinder’s demands. It is quite possible that it’s going to be a 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine with some upgrades. This power unit is capable to deliver around 300 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. The engine will be matted to a CVT gearbox and the AWD system should come as standard.
Release date and price
The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder won’t see the light of the day before 2017. Its price will probably be around $30.000 for the base model.
