The Nissan Pathfinder is an SUV standard in today's market, and now it's back with brand new features, technology, and designs. Nissan skipped a year with this model, leaving it out of its 2021 lineup. That time off gave them time to find new and impressive ways to upgrade this old favorite. Now, in 2022, the Nissan Pathfinder is back to reestablish itself as a desirable SUV, with plenty of style and comfort to offer its customers.

The Nissan Pathfinder is Nissan's three-row SUV made to look and perform ruggedly for those who prefer an active lifestyle. However, its comfort and style also make it an extremely versatile vehicle. The Pathfinder can get up to 21 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway, suitable for a car of its size and engine power. It can tow up to 6,000 pounds and has 284 horsepower. The Nissan Pathfinder can handle it when you need to tow a boat to the lake or attach a trailer full of moving boxes.

The powertrain inside the new Pathfinder is upgraded and ready to impress. It has a nine-speed automatic transmission replacing the CVT in order models. It maintains its standard V-8 engine. The 2022 Pathfinder is more responsive than ever combined with the new transmission. If you are looking for a vehicle you can take anywhere, you may want to consider the upgrade. You have the option of upgrading to four-wheel drive, improving the off-roading performance of this SUV. This option has seven selectable drive modes: standard, sport, eco, snow, sand, mud/rut, and tow.

The Pathfinder is available in 14 colors, which are:

  • Two-Tone Scarlet Ember Tintcoat with Super Black detailing
  • Scarlet Ember Tintcoat
  • Deep Ocean Blue Pearl

The Nissan Pathfinder comes with a host of family-friendly features to assist with driving, ensure safety and prioritize comfort. The new Pathfinder's exterior recalls its original design, with the option for two-tone paint jobs and chrome lettering on the liftgate. It also has standard LED headlights and upper daytime running lights, so you never lose your way.

The 2022 Pathfinder interior features a 12.3-inch digital instrument panel that boasts several screen options. However, the driver doesn't have to look far from the road because it also has a 10.8-inch head-up display that shows the driver their vehicle speed and navigational directions on the back of the windshield. In the center console, there's an 8-inch color touch screen that is accessible by the driver and front-seat passengers, where they can control directions, music, and any infotainment features they want.

The cloth and leather upholstery inside the Pathfinder is comfortable and stylish, making it the perfect accent for your family car. It's available in various colors, so you can choose what works best for your family. Some of the higher trims offer a brushed bronze metallic accent inside, adding to the stylish vibe inside the car. Your kids or friends can also stay entertained in the three rows of seating, as there are four USB ports and a pair of 12-volt outlets placed throughout the cabin.

Nissan also improved Pathfinder's safety features to make their customers feel safer and more secure in their family vehicles. You have the option of the ProPilot Assist feature, which combines steering assist with adaptive cruise control to assist in heavy traffic on the highway. This is an improved system from previous Pathfinder models because it also communicates with your navigation to anticipate sharp bends, freeway exits, and intersections.

The Pathfinder also has a NissanConnect system that pairs with your phone for hands-off handling of your navigation, phone calls, and infotainment. You can also opt for the Safety Shield360, which includes front and rear sensing and automatic braking and a series of warnings, like lane departure, blind sports, and rear cross-traffic alerts.


The Nissan Pathfinder is available in four trim levels. The S is the basic trim, with all the standard features. It has a 3.5-liter 24 Valve direct injection gasoline V-6 engine and the SafetyShield technology. The SV is a step up with the ProPilot Assist and 10-way power driver's seat, not to mention the remote engine start and heated front seats that are so popular with new cars. The next level up is the SL, which features leather-appointed seats, an intelligent around-view monitor, and a 9-inch touch screen on the center console, one inch higher than the standard.

The final trim is the Platinum, which features 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels and a panoramic moon roof, emphasizing its luxurious features. This trim also features an impressive premium audio system so you and your family can sing along to your favorite songs on those long road trips. Throwing in the head-up display, this trim has the most bells and whistles. Each increase in trim level carries a higher price. While the higher levels may have more luxury features, the standard version has the safety features and driving capabilities to satisfy a family looking to get the most out of their SUV.


The Nissan Pathfinder is a sturdy car that can handle some basic off-roading or inclement weather. The new 2022 model brings back the car's strengths in terms of its versatility and spacious cabin while improving its technology and luxurious offerings. Don't let the Pathfinder's new and improved rugged exterior fool you. This car is still designed with your family in mind, with comfortable seating, a spacious cabin, and many safety features.
