At least this Pathfinder is not as bad and goofy looking as most of Nissan/infiniti's offerings of late.

...but it's nothing to write home about both inside and out.

I've always thought the Pathfinder looked nimble, medium-small and sporty....

This is none of those things. It is howeverm, round and bloated.

I don't like it.

IMO, the front looks decent, the rear...looks strange...like it's hanging down too low.

It is more off raised wagon than SUV. More like RX.
The interior central console is raised for easy access. I would rank it better than any SUV in this price range.
Xterra and new Armada will be more Offroad type.

So, the new Pathfinder and JX are going to share the Murano's powertrain as well as its platform. Safe to say that there's now no chance of me swapping my 09 MDX for a new JX. ( I was hoping the JX would share its platform/powertrain with the FX35. )

Murano drives great. Derived from the Altima chassis.

The JX concept at the LA Auto Show looks great imo...best thing I've seen from Infiniti since the 2nd gen G sedan debuted (and got tired real quick.)

Didn't like it?

I remember I was on the road for a tv show when they first came out and was given one as my rental. I put 10,000 miles on it in 8 weeks driving all over the country. I really liked it.

I hated the CVT in my 05 Murano. It was the only part of it that I didn't like. Granted, the CVT in the 09 Murano we had in Florida for two weeks felt slightly improved but not enough for me to prefer it over a conventional automatic.

As far as the VQ35DE goes, 265hp/248lb-ft works well for the (presumably lighter) Murano but I suspect the Pathfinder and JX will be notably heavier (i.e.: 4,500lbs+). Hence, my preference for the VQ37HR of the FX37 with its 330hp/270lb-ft. NOTE: I have an 09 MDX which is coming off lease in 8 months so, the JX would be (or would have been) a potential replacement

There is a lot to like about the Pathfinder Concept Nissan unveiled at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show. The thinly disguised showcar foregoes the body-on-frame construction of the current Pathfinder for a weight savings of about 500 pounds. Nissan also promises fuel economy improvement of about 25 percent with the production model, which would be no small feat.

Motor Trend reports that Nissan has confirmed that the 2013 Pathfinder will feature a 3.5-liter V6. That makes sense considering the Pathfinder's all-new sibling, the Infiniti JX35, will also feature the same V6. Nissan has yet to divulge any details about the Pathfinder mill, but we do know that the JX35 will boast 265 horsepower and 248 pound-feet of torque.

Nissan has also apparently told MT that it has big plans for April's New York Auto Show. Nissan will reportedly unveil a completely vehicle at the show that has never been seen by outsiders. Us? We're not sure, but our best guess is it'll be the 2013 Altima.

I guess all the Pathfinder buyers are going to have to buy 4Runners or Grand Cherokees.

Nissan is embarking on a 24-month stretch during which it will launch 20 new products, starting with the Pathfinder and its eNV200 electric van concept shown at the 2012 Detroit auto show. Andy Palmer, Nissan's planning and marketing boss, intends to use this opportunity to reboot and harmonize Nissan's brand image as a purveyor of innovation and excitement, accessible at all price points. What will be the most important of these new launches? The midsize Altima sedan.
Mr. Palmer promises the 2013 Altima will match the strongest competitors -- the Ford Fusion launched in Detroit, and the forthcoming Honda Accord. A Nissan-designed hybrid version will be part of the plan (the previous Altima bought Hybrid Synergy Drive hardware from Toyota), using a front-drive application of the system developed for the Infiniti M hybrid. A plug-in version will follow in 2015. Looking farther out, Nissan expects to offer a fuel-cell vehicle by 2020 -- an assertion made more plausible by the recent joint venture with Mercedes-Benz, a company with a long history of development in the fuel-cell field.

But Palmer doesn't expect to proliferate hybrids throughout the Nissan lineup. "I don't think hybridization makes sense everywhere. It works on larger vehicles, D-segment -- same for plug-in, maybe lower to C-class. But [battery electric] is a good solution in B & C segments." And how about a hybridized version of the GT-R to answer the new Acura NSX, also unveiled in Detroit? "Sports cars are not the ultimate examples of fuel efficiency, are they? I think hybridization on those types of vehicles has merit in terms of adding performance. Infiniti M is in the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest accelerating hybrid. That's because we use the hybrid to compensate in the early part of the torque curve for extra boost."


Infiniti is busy extending its global reach, and one way it's doing that is by investing heavily in Formula 1 sponsorship. I asked whether Infiniti would advertise in North America during the U.S. Grand Prix. "We will; 515 million people watch Formula 1 during the season, and they don't all come to the races, they watch on TV. So even if there were zero interest in the U.S., the rest of the world is interested. It's important that we put some money behind it, and I think Formula 1 is a good demonstration of what Infiniti stands for. It stands for two things: inspired performance and hospitality. And increasingly we're seeing a bleed-over between not just sponsoring the car, but also using Nissan and Infiniti technology in the cars. Nissan is working with Red Bull on the KERS [kinetic energy recovery system] battery technology. Our key technology is around the lithium-ion technology. And one day you guys will understand Formula 1."


The Mercedes-Benz collaboration will manifest itself in Infiniti's new front-drive model, which made its North American in Detroit as the Etherea. Based on the MFA (A-Class/B-Class) architecture, it will be powered by a co-developed four-cylinder engine that's also based on a Mercedes-Benz design and built (for both companies) on a new line in Nissan's Decherd, Tennessee, engine plant, capable of building 250,000 engines per year.

On the pickup truck front, Palmer admitted that the Titan has not lived up to expectations, and noted that the company's newfound push into commercial vehicles will eventually involve commercial-oriented pickup trucks as well. "We're working on the next generation of Titan, and we have every intention of making sure it's a much bigger player in the game. When we designed the NV2500 and 3500 vans we had in mind the next generation of heavy-duty chassis, so clearly if we base the next generation of Titan on some version of that chassis, it follows that it will be more capable." And at a time when many manufacturers seem to be stepping back from compact/midsize trucks, Nissan intends to double down on the Frontier. "Nissan and Toyota around the world define the [light-duty] pickup, so it's natural that we'd have a position in smaller pickups."

Keep it tuned right here, and we'll deliver a report card on Palmer's next 20 assignments.

I wouldn't mind having an Xterra, two of my buddies have Pro 4x's, but I can't get a comfortable seating position in it. I feel like the seat needs to go back another inch or two. My legs are too scrunched.

You're right. There's always a Land Cruiser, LX, or 4Runner I guess or a next Gen Armada which I am hoping to see in the next 18 months

The wife's Highlander just feels "soft" to me

LOL says the angry guy in the Prius. Well it's her car, but driving it just makes me yearn for a proper truck based SUV.

You guys are going to look at the new Pathfinder once the lease is up on the Toyota right?

I dont know what we are going to look at...its really going to be her choice. And it'll depend on what we can afford at the time. Right now my industry sucks.

I'm interested in the diesel jeep gc that's coming next Jan. My wife drives the Prius now, as has the kid's seats. She doesn't love the car either.

I daily drive a 97 Jeep gc that my father in law picked up dirt cheap from a customer, and he drives my wife's old civic. So, it all works out. I missed my pathfinder a lot...so I'm happy to still be driving a truck based SUV.

But I really liked the Ford Flex we rented last week...even more compared to the Explorer. But Fords are over priced and lease like hell. Either way, its all up in the air.

Yeah my wife's biggest issue with the Flex was how long it was and parking.

Nissan Pathfinder Press Release

NISSAN LAUNCHES REINVENTED 2013 PATHFINDER –MORE STYLE, COMFORT, ROOM, INNOVATION AND BEST-IN-CLASS FUEL ECONOMY

500-pound weight reduction from 2012 Pathfinder, aerodynamic design, new powertrain delivers 30 percent fuel economy improvement over last generation
Best-in-class city, highway and combined fuel economy of 20/26//22 MPG*
Most interior passenger volume, front headroom and legroom in class**
Highest standard towing capacity in class**
On sale at Nissan dealers nationwide this fall

NEW YORK/DETROIT (Aug. 3, 2012) – Nissan today unleashed the all-new 2013 Pathfinder SUV, a complete makeover featuring a sleek, aerodynamically styled exterior, a premium interior, class-exclusive user-friendly technology and a new unibody platform and advanced drivetrain that helps it achieve best-in-class fuel economy while maintaining class-lead towing and off-pavement capabilities.

The all-new vehicle design sheds 500 pounds of mass compared to the outgoing model yet maintains the Pathfinder's SUV-ruggedness while delivering up to 26 miles per gallon on the highway. With its blend of capability, including class-leading standard towing capacity of 5000 pounds, and modern amenities, such as a class-exclusive Around View™ Monitor, the 2013 Pathfinder is the next-generation SUV.

"Unveiling our next-generation Pathfinder is a major follow-up to the introduction of the all-new Altima sedan," said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc. "With its bold new design, best-in-class fuel economy and family adventure capabilities, our dealers can't wait to share this new model with customers in their showrooms."

The 2013 Pathfinder's fuel economy has improved more than 30 percent over that of the 2012 Pathfinder. Both the FWD and 4WD 2013 Pathfinder models lead their segments in fuel economy across the board.

City, highway and combined average fuel economy numbers are 20 (City), 26 (Highway) and 22 (Combined) mpg for the FWD version and 19 (City), 25 (Highway) and 21 (Combined) mpg for the 4WD version. This significant increase over both the outgoing model's fuel economy as well as that of the competition was achieved primarily through a new, aerodynamic vehicle design, 500 pounds of weight reduction, reduced engine friction and the application of a class-exclusive, next generation Xtronic CVT®.

Also playing a significant role in the Pathfinder's excellent fuel economy is the fact that it is now one of the lightest vehicles in its segment,with the FWD model tipping the scales at a mere 4149 pounds. Even the 4WD Pathfinder weighs only 4290 pounds.

Nissan teased the new Pathfinder earlier this year, showing a concept exterior design model in January. Today marks the first official look at the production model, which goes on sale nationwide this fall.

New Chassis Meets Consumer Shift
Truck-based SUV sales peaked in the mid-2000s and have declined steadily as consumer demands shifted to more refined, fuel efficient crossover SUVs. The 2013 Pathfinder is built with unibody construction, vastly reducing its weight by eliminating the fuel-penalizing mass of a traditional SUV's truck-based frame. In addition to making the Pathfinder a lighter vehicle, the new unibody chassis design increases Pathfinder's structural rigidity over the previous model. This improves ride and handling, while reducing overall noise, vibration and harshness, delivering an outstanding mix of responsiveness, refinement and ride comfort. The Pathfinder's rigid platform is also key to maintaining the trailer-towing capability expected from an SUV – the vehicle has a standard towing capacity of 5000 pounds, which is the best standard towing capacity in the segment.**

"It's no secret that the industry has shifted as gas prices have increased," says Al Castignetti. "But while traditional SUV customers are looking for improved fuel economy, they still demand a vehicle that can do all the things they need, like carrying seven people, towing, and providing the surefootedness in all conditions of a four-wheel drive."

Weight reduction is one of the key components in Nissan's drive to improving vehicle performance across the board. The just-introduced all-new Nissan Altima also is the lightest vehicle in its class.

Bold Design
Pathfinder's design conveys modernity while paying homage to the three generations of Pathfinders before it. The new unibody platform provided the designers an opportunity to create a more aerodynamic exterior without compromising headroom or cargo capacity. In fact, the new Pathfinder has more interior space than the previous model thanks to more efficient packaging.

Moving upscale in appearance, the new exterior styling presents a smart fusion of signature Nissan styling cues and dynamic strength. The look is adventure-ready with wheel-oriented muscular fenders and a strong, stable stance.

The upper body features an open cabin with a low beltline and thin A- and D-pillars, which flow smoothly into the rugged, durable-looking lower body. Pathfinder's design incorporates front and rear spoilers, rear tire deflectors and rear suspension fairings to help achieve what is expected to be among the best aerodynamic performances in the segment. Other exterior details include a wide chrome grille and large aerodynamic headlights, recessed front windshield wipers, chrome door handles and large rear combination lights.

A panoramic dual-panel moonroof, with sliding opening front panel and fixed rear glass panel which extends over the 2nd and 3rd rows, combines with the large windows to create an open, airy interior environment.

"With its new aerodynamic shape, the styling is a major step forward in the evolution of the SUV – retaining its people and cargo hauling utility without looking quite so utilitarian," said Castignetti. "It's fitting that a vehicle that tackles adventures in a whole new way also now looks the part."

Interior
Pathfinder's all-new interior design features versatile and comfortable seating as well as premium materials and advanced technology. The vehicle seats seven passengers comfortably, and is best-in-class in terms of front headroom, front leg room and overall passenger volume. Additionally, Pathfinder is now the only vehicle in the segment with a 3rd row seat recline.

The new Advanced Drive-Assist™ Display, located in the center of the instrument display between the tachometer and speedometer, features a 4-inch color display that is customizable, easy-to-use and integrates key information right in front of the driver. A separate touch-screen monitor, mounted in the middle of the instrument panel, provides intuitive interaction and control of the available navigation system and other vehicle systems and settings.

Technology and Innovation
The all-new Pathfinder also features EZ Flex Seating System™ with LATCH AND GLIDE™. LATCH AND GLIDE™ is an industry first 2nd row tip-up seat for use with a child safety seat, which also provides easy access to the 3rd row while keeping the child seat securely fastened. The 2nd row also features a 60/40 split-fold seating with a segment best 5.5 inches of seat travel. Class-exclusive features include Easy Fill Tire Alert and the segment-first availability of an Around View™ Monitor.

Other available amenities include leather-appointed seating, heated steering wheel, heated and cooled front seats, programmable Nissan Intelligent Key®, Nissan Navigation System, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, 13-speaker Bose® Premium Audio system, Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), Dual-Zone Climate Control, RearView Monitor, remote engine start and tri-zone entertainment system.

New Powertrain
All 2013 Pathfinders come equipped with an advanced 260-horsepower 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine matched with a next-generation Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission). It is also the only vehicle in class with selectable 2WD, Auto or 4WD modes for the available intuitive ALL-MODE 4x4-i system. The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder will be offered in 4x4 and 4x2 drive configurations and in four models – S, SV, SL and Platinum.

Pricing and Additional Details
Pricing on all models will be announced closer to the fall on-sale date. Additional information is available at https://www.facebook.com/nissanpathfinder and https://twitter.com/nissanpathfindr.

Manufacturing
Pathfinder is assembled at Nissan's Smyrna assembly plant in Smyrna, Tennessee. The 3.5-liter V-6 engine is assembled at the company's Decherd, Tennessee powertrain plant.

Nissan unveiled a new 2019 Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition, which goes on sale in spring 2019 with a package price of $995. The Rock Creek Edition special value package offers unique exterior and interior treatments that emphasize the rugged Pathfinder heritage.

The package pricing reflects a savings of up to $1,315 (versus similar equipment priced separately). The Rock Creek Edition package is offered on Pathfinder SV and SL grades, in both 2-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations, and in a choice of seven available exterior colors.

"The Rock Creek Edition name was chosen to connect to Pathfinder's family outdoor adventure-minded target customers," said Scott Shirley, vice president, CMM & Marketing Operations, Nissan North America, Inc. "By offering the Rock Creek Package on a range of grades, drivetrains and colors, buyers are able to customize their Pathfinders to their precise tastes."

Key exterior differences between the Rock Creek Edition and standard 2019 Pathfinders include unique dark 18-inch wheels with unique 255/60R18 all-season tires, black mesh grille, black roof rails, black door handles and outside rearview mirrors, black front and rear fascia accents and license plate finisher, black molded overfenders and black model, grade and 4WD badges (if so equipped) and unique badging on the front doors.

Interior changes include unique Rock Creek Edition two-tone seating surfaces and badging, high contrast stitching on seats, door, console lid and steering wheel and premium metallic interior trim.

Every Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition also features a standard trailer tow hitch and harness and splash guards. Both 4WD and 2WD Pathfinder models feature best-in-class 6,000-pound towing capability.

Two additional options are available with the Rock Creek Edition. The new SV Rock Creek Edition Technology Package features a MSRP of $980 and includes NissanConnect® with Navigation and Services, SiriusXM® Traffic, NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM® (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately), heated cloth front seats, heated steering wheel and heated outside rearview mirrors.

The new SL Rock Creek Edition Premium Package, with a MSRP of $2,110, adds Bose® 13-speaker Premium Audio System and Power Panorama Moonroof.

All 2019 Pathfinder models are equipped with a 284-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 with Direct Injection Gasoline™ (DIG) system and Xtronic transmission. Torque is rated at 259 lb-ft. Standard maximum towing capacity is a best-in-class of up to 6,000 pounds, giving owners the ability to tow two-axle recreational trailers, whether for watercraft, flatbeds or campers.

Pathfinder's stylish, adventure-ready interior includes comfortable seating for seven and features Nissan's innovative EZ Flex® Seating System™ with LATCH AND GLIDE®, a 2nd row tilt and glide seat that allows easy 3rd row access with a child safety seat still installed. All 2019 Pathfinder models also include standard Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) and Nissan's innovative Rear Door Alert(RDA) system, which can help remind customers of items that may be forgotten in the rear seat.

Also available are Intelligent Around View® Monitor (I-AVM), Bose® 13-speaker premium audio system, Dual Panorama Moonroof, Motion-Activated liftgate with liftgate position memory and NissanConnect® with Navigation and Services.

The 2019 Pathfinder is offered in 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive configurations and a choice of four well-equipped grade levels: S, SV, SL and Platinum.
