Nissan has revealed this week their most recently revamped Nissan vehicles. The 2022 Nissan Frontier and 2022 Nissan Pathfinder, both of these vehicles were showcased online when they debuted. The teasing of these vehicles had been showcased online for weeks, but we have just learned all the fresh details coming to these premier Nissan vehicles. On one hand, the popular Nissan Pathfinder will see a distinct change to its exterior with a new three-row experience that includes some intelligent upgrade options for customers. The 2022 Frontier will carry some impressive changes in its own right, but for now, let’s focus on the upcoming 2022 Pathfinder. 

New Nissan Features On Their Way

The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder will add a new nine-speed automatic transmission paired to a 3.5-Liter V6 powertrain. The family-crossover, as it’s known, offers a slightly larger, taller, wider, and longer vehicle. There are more perks for customers that have many passengers to drive around and the Pathfinder carries 284 horsepower and 259 lb-ft of torque. To go with that impressive strength are added seat belts that go from two in the third-row to three. The optional captain’s chair seating is a nice addition to the second row. A towing package is available for those looking to haul and provide more than just passengers.  

The Nissan Pathfinder will include new safety features and lose the continuously variable transmission (CVT), a concept that was adopted across many automakers. CVT offered a minute uptick in fuel-saving technology; not enough to outweigh the complications of repairs needed on CVT vehicles. Not to mention, the very term “continuously variable transmission” doesn’t make grammatical sense (fellow writers will agree) and didn’t offer much for customers looking for top-notch technology. Additional features include two USB ports that are standard in the rear and with an optional 120-volt power outlet in the second row and an extra USB port for the third row. 

More On the 2022 Pathfinder

The infotainment system gains an upgraded 8-inch and 9-inch touchscreen with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay awaiting drivers. The Pathfinder S trim (the base trim) offers some driver-assistance features that are standard. For buyers that opt for the mid-trim SV trim. They will gain the ProPilot Assist system standard and gain adaptive cruise control and lane-keep assist for highway driving use. The SL trim gains an even better version of the ProPilot that includes a navigation system link that will notice and predict freeway curves ahead of time. 

We don’t know the price of the 2022 Pathfinder just yet, but we expect the price to be around $33,000 for the base trim and around $45,000 for the highest tier trim, the Platinum that includes all-wheel-drive and will be available this summer.
