2022 Nissan Pathfinder

The original Pathfinder from the 1980s was all about capability, on and off the road. It was a true SUV, built on a truck platform, and was beloved not just by outdoor enthusiasts but anyone who wanted extra space but didn’t have the personality for a station wagon or minivan. Nissan returns to these roots by introducing the fifth-generation Pathfinder for the 2022 model year.

Rugged styling meets off-road capability.

In recrafting the recipe for this legendary vehicle, Nissan’s engineers combined the Pathfinder's off-pavement credentials with the needs of today's driver. The result is a modern crossover that embraces the latest technology, complete with multi-terrain drive modes and state-of-the-art safety systems. The all-new Pathfinder also boasts a completely reworked exterior and interior. The modified V-Motion grille symbolizes strength and helps the Pathfinder stand out in a sea of sameness. Inside, there's ample room for seven or eight, with everyone surrounded by premium treatments.

Trims and Powertrain

There are four Pathfinder choices: S, SV, SL, and Platinum. All versions have a 3.5-liter V6 engine making 284 horsepower and 259 lb.-ft. of torque. It's paired with either standard front-wheel drive (FWD) or an available all-wheel-drive (AWD) system. Part of this exciting redesign is a nine-speed automatic transmission for improved performance and fuel efficiency. The EPA-estimated fuel economy for the FWD-equipped Pathfinder is 21 mpg around town and 26 mpg on the highway, which increases to highway mpg of 27 for S, SV, and SL with AWD. The Platinum trim with AWD gets 20 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the open road. Most versions (when properly equipped) can tow up to 6,000 pounds.

Standard Features and Options

The eight-passenger S trim feels anything but entry-level with features like tri-zone automatic climate control, proximity keyless entry, push-button start, LED headlights with automatic on/off, rear parking sensors, a 7-inch driver information display, and 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels. The EZ FLEX seating system makes for convenient access to the 60/40-split folding third-row seat, and there's a suite of advanced safety gear, which is detailed in the next section. The SV adds remote start, heated front seats, a ten-way power driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, black roof rails, and heated side mirrors. The optional SV Premium Package brings a panoramic moonroof, a power tailgate, and a trailer hitch with a wiring harness while reducing capacity to seven with a pair of second-row captain's chairs with a removable center console.

The SL is improved with leather-trimmed seating (first and second rows), a power tailgate, a heated steering wheel, a four-way power front passenger seat, rear sunshades, LED fog lights, enhanced proximity keyless entry, front and rear parking sensors, silver-finish roof rails, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The available SL Premium Package will supply a panoramic moonroof, heated second-row captain's chairs, wireless device charging, 20-inch alloy wheels, and a tow hitch with a wiring harness.

Crowning the Pathfinder lineup is the Platinum, which starts its standard equipment list with everything from the SL Premium Package. It also gets semi-aniline leather seats with quilted inserts (heated and cooled in the front row), a head-up display, a driver's position memory system, a power tilt/telescoping steering column, a motion-activated tailgate, a digital dashboard, power-folding side mirrors, rain-sensing windshield wipers, a 120-volt AC outlet, and interior accents in a bronze finish.

Advanced Safety Systems

A star component of the Pathfinder’s standard equipment roster is Nissan Safety Shield 260. This array of the latest driver safety technology includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot warning, lane departure warning, rear cross-traffic alert, rear automatic braking, and high-beam assist. A driver attention monitor and rear door alert are standard as well. The SV and higher trims get ProPILOT Assist semi-autonomous driving along with upgraded lane intervention and blind-spot monitoring systems. The SL and Platinum also have Nissan’s Intelligent Around-View Monitor and traffic sign recognition. In addition to an advanced airbag system that comes in every Pathfinder, the Platinum adds a driver seat-mounted front-center supplemental airbag.

Staying Connected

An 8-inch touchscreen is the centerpiece of the infotainment system for the S and SV. It’s used to control the multi-speaker audio system, SiriusXM satellite radio, smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), Bluetooth, and hands-free text messaging. Also standard are two 12-volt DC outlets and multiple USB ports. The SV and higher trims receive NissanConnect Services and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The SL and Platinum move up to a 9-inch touchscreen and get navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay, and additional USB ports. A 13-speaker Bose sound system comes via the SL Premium Package, and the Platinum gets it by default.
