Details about the upcoming 2018 Nissan Pathfinder are starting to surface and we have collected for you all the information that there is about the upcoming model. The Pathfinder has been one of Nissan’s oldest models and it was first produced in 1985 as a two-door sport utility vehicle based on the company’s pickup truck line. Nissan only started producing the car as a 4 door model in 1995 and went on to make changes to car since then.
Between October 2015 and 2016, Nissan sold a total of 6,421 in the United States and in a bid to increase demand for the model, has decided to make the 2018 model slightly different from the car’s previous iterations. Among the updates, there will be changes that will cover the exterior design, interior design and a few changes to the performance of the engine.
2018 Nissan Pathfinder – Exterior Expectations and Luxurious Interior Design
The exterior of the car will have a new strikingly stylish and elegant design. Among the updates, there will be a new design for the headlights, hood and it is said it will come with a new V-shaped grill.
Nissan wants to market this as a luxury crossover SUV and as such has added more features to fine tune and upgrade the luxury in the model. There will be a completely new dashboard with a touchscreen display and a somewhat new infotainment system.
These new tech features will give users new functions such as voice control and navigation for the more expensive versions. The improved A/c and music systems in the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder will only make the car feel more stylish and luxurious.
Although it will be a Seven seater, the 2018 Pathfinder will have plenty of room for its occupants with ample space for the head and legs on all the seats. The 3rd row of the SUV will have flip seats that can be folded to give more space for cargo. Talking about cargo, the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder will definitely have more cargo space for those who might need it.
2018 Nissan Pathfinder – Powerful Engine and Performance
There won’t be so many changes to the engine as the Nissan Pathfinder is expected to ship with one similar to that of its predecessor. The engine is expected to a 3.5-liter V6 engine which can deliver a decent 260 hp. There is a possibility that the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder might ship with a 3.8-litre V8 engine but this is less likely.
The car will use a contemporary 2-pace CVT gearbox that greatly helps to control gas usage. Fuel consumption is predicted to be around the 25 mpg mark but it could even better due to the fact that Nissan wants this model to be a lot better than its predecessor.
2018 Nissan Pathfinder – Price and Release Date
Given the fact that Nissan has committed to making the Nissan Pathfinder 2018 a turd different from its predecessor. There is certainly a lot of work to be done and as such a release date of late 2017 or early 2018 is expected. The car is expected to cost $32,000 for the base model and $50,000 for the more trimmed version which could ship with All Wheel Drive and maybe with a V8 engine.
