Nissan Pathfinder is one of the oldest and most trusted names in America’s crossover market and although in recent years the car’s been hit with a surge in the number of cheaper and prettier Korean rivals, it is still one of the good one. That is why Nissan is confident the new 2017 Pathfinder is going to do well sales-wise in spite of the rather fat MSRP they have given it.
The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder starts at $29,990, excluding a 900 bucks handling charge, and goes up to $43,560 for the range-topping model. The car comes in 4WD and 2WD drive configurations and in four models: S, SV, SL and Platinum, and besides the good and trusted name it also has going for it the fact that it is assembled at various plants in Tennessee, so it’ll appeal to the patriotism of the Americans which is running high these days.
As for the SUV itself, what you get in terms of standard and available features include a 284 horsepower 3.5-liter DIG V6 engine across the range paired with Nissan’s third-generation Xtronic transmission, seven-seat configuration with 2nd row tilt and glide seat that allows easy 3rd row access, Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) and Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) as well as around view monitor and blind spot warning and rear cross traffic alert, Motion-Activated liftgate to updated vehicle connected services, and of course the new design which brings a bold new front end with signature boomerang-shaped headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights, available LED headlights, “V-Motion” grille and a more aggressive hood.2017 Nissan Pathfinder – U.S. Pricing and Specs,
