The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is a new mid-size crossover SUV. It is the latest in a long line of cars of a similar make, with the first one released in 1985. The vehicle has seen four different generations and is one of the most popular SUVs of its types and one of the most popular vehicles made by Nissan.
2017 Nissan Pathfinder – Exterior and Interior Changes
The exterior of the car is home to a few interesting modifications when it is compared with other SUVs like it. The vehicle in itself is designed predominantly for the North American market. The general mass of the vehicle has gone down to only 4,000 pounds (1,018 kg). There are some interesting changes to the front and back end of the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder including an augmented front bumper and LED headlights. The back bumper has also undergone a facelift, as have the lights. There is also a bit of improvement in the alloy wheels and the fog lights. Overall, the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder has evolved with the technology, necessities and fashion of the time.
The interior of the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder has not been excluded from the dramatic changes this car has gone through. The dashboard is fresh and new with a whole host of technological advancements where the entertainment system and the driving aids are concerned. There is a touch screen here with a fresh and attractive design. It is also very high in resolution to make using it an even better experience. The driver also gets a rear-view camera, something that every modern car should have. In the front and at the back, the new Pathfinder allows for more leg room for both the driver and the passengers. There are three rows of seats in this car to allow it to carry a good number of people comfortably (it can take seven grown people). The new Nissan Pathfinder expertly combines operational ability with comfort and style in the interior to deliver the perfect SUV for any occasion.
2017 Nissan Pathfinder – Engine and Performance
There are fewer changes here than in the interior and the exterior of the vehicle. The engine of the new model will very closely resemble that of the previous model. There are options, though, to allow buyers to choose between a petrol and a hybrid engine. The basic Nissan Pathfinder 2017 will have a 3.5 litre V6 petrol engine that can make 300 horsepower and 250 pounds/foot of torque. It is basically a very powerful SUV but one that doesn’t consume as much fuel as those built in the early 2010s. The hybrid version of this car will have a 2.5 litre four-cylinder petrol engine coupled with a 15 kilowatt electric motor, which will have a set of lithium ion batteries to power it. This vehicle will be able to make a total of 250 horsepower and 243 pounds/foot of torque. That is pretty impressive for a hybrid engine.
2017 Nissan Pathfinder – Price and Release
The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is set for a release of early 2017, though the exact date is still a bit hazy. It will cost upwards of $30,000, which isn’t all that bad considering what you are getting with this car.
