2022 Nissan Pathfinder
Bob Moore Nissan – 2022 Nissan Pathfinder Reveal
Bob Moore Nissan is poised and ready for the next great thing to come from the Nissan Motor Company, a complete redesign of the ever-popular Nissan Pathfinder. This vehicle has been on the ultimate journey of automobile evolution, with its first model year in 1986, multiple facelifts and improvements that have led us to today’s ultimate adventure vehicle. We finally got our first look at the newest Pathfinder at Nissan’s Next 2021 Grand Reveal Event, which also showcased the newest Frontier, the upcoming Ariya, and even a handful of vehicle prototypes. Although the modern line up for Nissan is highly varied, the Pathfinder is one of its oldest and most celebrated models, and is revealed to have many of the best features to date in any Nissan Vehicle.
In lieu of a 2021 model year for the Pathfinder, Nissan spent its time completely redesigning the vehicle from head to toe. This year’s Pathfinder is the biggest one yet, and designed to look far more intimidating than its 2020 forebear even with the same wheelbase. 2022 brings us a Pathfinder that is longer, wider, and taller than any Pathfinder yet made. Nissan built this year’s Pathfinder to bring an all-new level of competition within the segment, and the results is a gloriously comfortable interior but with all the capability you can imagine, and as it stands it is the current ring-bearer for the highest towing capacity at 6,000 pounds.
Nissan not only pushed for an exciting new exterior design for the vehicle, but also went all-out on a revamped inside that harnesses high comfort and combines it with modern technology. The center console is a complete turnaround from that of the 2020 model year. The driver MID screen behind the steering wheel is now all-digital and in full color, allowing for customization and easy information access. They also offer a new, heads-up display projected right onto the windshield that includes turn-by-turn navigation, speed, and even a note on which song is playing. The maximum sized 9.0 inch infotainment touch screen is floating instead of embedded within the center dash, allowing for orientation closer to the horizon line, and creating less opportunity for drivers to take their eyes off of the wheel. They also added max passenger capacity by one more over 2020’s model by adding in a middle seatbelt in the back row, which allows for a total of 7 passengers to join the fun.
The engine is a carryover from previous model years, which features a 3.5L V6 engine that still provides enough power to stay competitive at 284 horsepower. Nissan foregoes the previous CVT transmission of older Pathfinders in favor of an exciting new 9-speed transmission that offers more control than ever before. The 2022 Pathfinder also has a new feature allowing you to switch between various mode depending on your terrain, with at seven different terrain-based modes and an option for when you are towing a load.
There’s no shortage of features and options with the 2022 Pathfinder, and Nissan enthusiasts all over the country are undoubtedly looking forward to the release of this exciting new way to experience adventure. Look forward to the 2022 Pathfinder at Bob Moore Nissan near Oklahoma City.
