Celebrating 30 years in business, the Nissan Pathfinder 2017 comes with a new face, new propulsion system design, enhanced security features and new dynamics and technology.
Looking like the love child of the compact crossover Nissan Rogue and rival Ford Explorer, Pathfinder updated using a tomboy, square face that incorporates the latest examples of design of Nissan, including brand grid V-Motion and set LED daytime running lights boomerang, which they are standard on all four models (S, SV, SL and Platinum). The top-spec Pathfinder Platinum also gets LED headlights, while smaller models continue with halogens. At the rear, a new bumper cover and rear light lenses, along with a rear door activated by movement, differentiate the Pathfinder in 2017 from last year’s version.
the aerodynamic revisions, bringing the drag coefficient of the intersection of three lines below a pinch to 0.33 of an already respectable 0.34. As a reference, smooth and fuel-efficient new Mazda CX-9 cut the air with a 0.35 Cd Pathfinder smooth shape pays dividends at the pump. Nissan expects medium-sized step to keep their numbers EPA fuel economy of 20 mpg city and 27 mpg highway for front-drive models drive and 19/26 with all-wheel drive, while offering 24 more horsepower and 19 lb.-ft. of torque most important revision.
Nissan says more than half of the pieces in the Pathfinder 3.5-liter V-6 are new. Nicknamed VQ35DD, the latest iteration of the VQ engine power makes 284 horses and 259 lb-ft of torque healthy here. In combination with the latest continuously variable automatic transmission Nissan, a unit of the company characterized as “similar” to the new Maxima, the new propulsion system provides a towing capacity of 6,000 pounds, an increase of 1,000 pounds.
Ultimately, however, the Pathfinder is a family vehicle, and Nissan has worked to improve the capacity of the intersection of three lines to transport people from here to there in comfort and safety. Stiffer front and rear shock absorbers team with a handful of other improvements suspension to reduce body roll, and the steering is quicker. Meanwhile, security technology, such as automatic emergency braking and adaptive cruise control are available again, but only the top-spec platinum. Nissan vision camera system adds 360 degree motion detection objects for your resume, but is not available in S and SV models.
Inside, all Conquistadores 2017, now come standard with a color display improved in the dashboard, plus a touch screen mounted in the center eight-inch (larger than last year inch). Navigation is standard on the top level of platinum, optional on the SL and SV, and is not available on the base Pathfinder S, while the Pathfinder Platinum is the only model that offers the option of a rear entertainment system, including a pair of headrest- mounted screens; eight inches, these displays are also one inch longer than before.
With the capacity and resources that are in line with their competitors in three rows, family-drag is difficult to say that the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder really shines its own track, but the latest updates from Nissan must keep getting back on segment. The price of the Pathfinder 2017 has not yet been released, but do not expect the vehicle magazine hits stores in September to stray too far from the base current $ 30.730.
