The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder has been officially revealed overnight.
Dimensionally, the new Pathfinder measures 5004mm long, 1979mm wide and 1778mm high. For context, that equates to a 38mm reduction in length, while width and height have both grown by 19mm. It will ride on the same 2900mm wheelbase as the current model.
Nissan will continue to use the 3.5-litre naturally-aspirated petrol V6 engine, however, it gets an increase of 10kW and 11Nm for total outputs of 212kW and 351Nm.
Interestingly, Nissan has dumped the CVT automatic in favour of an all-new nine-speed torque converter automatic transmission. Buyers will still have the option of front- or all-wheel drive.
Design-wise, the new model gets C-shaped LED headlights with signature daytime-running lights, the latest 'V-motion' grille, and new tail-lights.
On the inside, eight seats are included as standard with three people able to sit in the third-row. In the US, buyers can spec the SUV in a seven-seat configuration with second-row captain's chairs.
Further equipment highlights include a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a 9.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, wireless Apple CarPlay, wired Android Auto, wireless phone charging, a Wi-Fi hotspot, satellite navigation, and a surround-view monitor.
According to Nissan, refinement has been improved by the inclusion of thicker second-row glass and additional sound insulation.
Nissan’s full ProPilot suite of active safety features are also included meaning next-generation radar and camera technology to provide smoother braking, better steering assist feel and improved detection performance when other vehicles cut into the lane.
The ProPilot suite also uses the brand’s Navi-link technology incorporated into the navigation system which allows map-guided speed control in advance of known turns, exits, and junctions.
Locally, Nissan is yet to confirm when the new Pathfinder will reach Australia.
