2018 Nissan Pathfinder Rumors and Review – The Pathfinder evolved enormously throughout the years from a real SUV to a more of your people carrier with a tougher look. The existing version of the car premiered back in 2012, and even though it was not perfect, it sold quite well. At its 30th birthday, Nissan decided to offer a rather large refresh with the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder which gets exterior and interior changes as well as a new powertrain.
2018 Nissan Pathfinder Redesign
No major changes are anticipated to the just lately refreshed Pathfinder body. While familiar, the latest iteration has lots of details that make it stand out from the prior model. The changes include an all-new nasal area as well as new sheet metallic, body lines, headlights, and grille. Inside, the changes include a new infotainment system, standard Advanced Drive-Assist Display, updated cloth car seats, and more.
The exterior redesign carries a bolder front side end with personal boomerang-shaped headlights with LED daytime running lamps, available LED headlights, “V-Motion” grille and a more aggressive hood.
2018 Nissan Pathfinder Engine
We’ve heard that 2018 Nissan Pathfinder will use same drivetrain as its forerunner. Beneath the hood of the crossover should be 3.5- V6 powertrain. Electric power is improved to 260 horsepower. Then, modified transmission is matched with engine. A 2-quickness CVT gearbox is modern system, which reduces petrol consumption. At the same time it increases performance. On the other hand, new Pathfinder might use V8 unit. However, 3.8-l displacement is not as likely. This engine is far from requirements of energy economy, since new crossover will be ranked 25 mpg. Hybrid electricity source is also possible, but there is absolutely no confirmation about it. However, we can wish.
2018 Nissan Pathfinder Price and Release Date
Nissan has not yet announced the official release date for the 2018 Pathfinder. That said, based on production estimates, we currently predict an on-sale date in September 2017.
Since it is a carryover, we do not expect the 2018 Pathfinder to carry a price much higher than the current model, which ranges from $30,930 to $44,500 (vacation spot fees included).
