Latest Generation


The 2022 redesign introduced a squared-off exterior, the latest infotainment technology, and optional second-row captain's chairs. The same 3.5-liter, 284-hp V6 engine, now coupled with a nine-speed automatic transmission, replaced the previous CVT. This generation focused on user-friendly controls and many standard safety features, including forward collision warning and lane departure warning, with the optional Nissan's ProPilot Assist system. Recently redesigned, the 2024 Pathfinder represents a major improvement over its predecessor. It boasts a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 284 hp, now paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, delivering smooth propulsion and an overall 21 mpg. It's available in front- or all-wheel drive and features a steady but somewhat stiff ride. Handling is responsive for a vehicle of its size. The interior is user-friendly, with physical buttons and knobs for key functions and options for seven or eight passengers. Standard safety features include AEB with pedestrian detection and blind-spot warning, with Nissan's ProPilot Assist system as an optional feature.

Previous Generation


In 2013, the Pathfinder shifted to a car-based chassis, moving away from its off-road roots towards better ride quality and a more comfortable interior. The 3.5-liter V6 engine connected to a CVT was capable of towing 5,000 pounds. The model featured a second row that could move forward for easy third-row access, even with a child seat installed. Standard safety features included stability control, traction control, and antilock brakes, with forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking added in 2018.


The 2005 redesign of the mid-sized Pathfinder included standard Electronic Stability Control (ESC), an available third-row seat, a 4.0-liter V6 engine, and an independent rear suspension for improved handling. The ride was stiff, and the third-row seat was suitable only for children. This model was capable of towing 5,000 pounds, and the higher trims offered features like power-adjustable pedals and an optional V8 engine introduced in 2008.


TDuring this period, the Pathfinder was known for its moderate braking and difficult rear-seat access. The year 2000 brought better brakes and controls, along with a refined 3.5-liter V6 engine that enhanced performance. The 2001 LE model received a selectable full-time 4WD system. The cargo area and rear seat were somewhat limited in space, and the ride quality could deteriorate under load. Electronic stability control became available from 2003.
