2017 Nissan Pathfinder Gets New Look

The Nissan Pathfinder has received a new modern makeover that you’re sure to love! For 2017, Nissan has given the ultra-popular SUV a new front and rear facias including enhanced designs for the headlights, taillights, foglights and daytime running lights. There’s also a new grille that follows the same “V-Motion” design elements as the award-winning Nissan Maxima sedan.

Other notable enhancements can be found underneath the vehicle’s hood, which is where you’ll find a brand-new athletic 3.5-liter V6 engine that ups horsepower to 284. It’s a powerful engine that is can tow up to 6,000 pounds (when properly equipped).

"As part of Nissan's ongoing, extensive research into consumers' real-world towing activities, we've found that mid-size SUV owners really want the ability to tow two-axle recreational trailers, whether for watercraft, flatbeds or campers," said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North America, Inc.

The long list of upgrades doesn’t stop there either. For 2017, the Pathfinder also gets new 18-inch (S, SV and SL trims) and 20-inch (Platinum) alloy wheel designs, giving it a much sportier look than its predecessor. In addition, there’s also two new exterior colors: Sandstone and Caspian Blue. Buyers will also have the choice of available colors like Midnight Jade, Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, Magnetic Black, Cayenne Red, Pearl White and Glacier White.

Inside, the Pathfinder features a redesigned console as well as a larger eight-inch touchscreen infotainment system. The exclusive NissanConnect system is also available. It includes access to emergency services, remote access and three years of Sirius XM Traffic and Travel service.

Like before, Nissan has made safety a top priority on the seven-passenger SUV by adding a suite of newly available safety features that include Forward Emergency Braking, Intelligent Cruise Control and Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection.
