Facebook was the channel chosen by Nissan to present the first images of the new Pathfinder and a few days ago start to provide data. The new 4 × 4 generation look at least and more urban, close to the crossover Qashqai.
The new Pathfinder will leave its position as a vehicle that leave the asphalt and practice driving off road and seek to expand its clientele with skills for everyday use: proof of this is to use the platform of the Murano and the crossover from Infiniti for this new generation Pathfinder. Aesthetically, hardly differs from the prototype that Nissan present in the Hall of New York 2012, except for the shield on the bottom of the bumper and side skirts. Inside, the Pathfinder retains the ability to carry seven passengers in three rows of seats. Improving the quality of finishes now comes standard with heated seats and entertainment system with three zones.
In Europe, there is no date for the launch of the Pathfinder, but in the United States is expected in late 2012. In principle, images belong to the model sold in North America, so it remains to be seen if Nissan made some aesthetics modification to sell it in Europe, as Honda has done with the CR-V. Nor have released the engines, while Nissan has developed a new 260 hp 3.5 V6 that has reduced the consumption by 25% compared to the 4.0 V8 before and that surely will mount on the Pathfinder associated with a transmission Xtronic CVT automatic. The improvement in consumption is also due to the 227 kg lighter chassis that weighs in the new generation. Will be available with two or four wheels drive.
