The upcoming Pathfinder has been illustrated, showing off the brand’s latest design language.
Nissan’s new-generation Pathfinder is beginning to take shape.
As the camouflaged photos suggested, the SUV will gain the latest iteration of Nissan’s signature front-end, featuring the brand’s ‘V-motion’ grille and ‘boomerang’ headlights.
While it may look substantially different, the new model is expected to be a heavily revised version of the current Pathfinder, running on Renault-Nissan’s D platform.
While the 3.5-litre V6 will likely carry over, it’s possible the CVT automatic may be replaced by a conventional automatic. Less is known about the Pathfinder hybrid at this stage, though with Nissan’s ongoing focus on electrification, a patrol-electric powertrain will likely also join the range again.
Both front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive layouts are expected to continue in the new model.
There’s no official word yet on when we can expect the 2021 Nissan Pathfinder, but it’s anticipated the unveiling will occur before the fourth quarter of next year.
