Discover What the Pathfinder Has to Offer for 2022!

The Pathfinder is Nissan’s signature full-size SUV, perfect for family activities like camping and road trips, as well as simply providing a safe and reliable daily driving experience. The Pathfinder is beloved for its athletic appearance and rugged capabilities, and the 2022 model is taking these features a step further with a redesigned exterior, and exciting updates inside and out! The Pathfinder has been a member of the Nissan family for 35 years, and the latest edition is the best yet, offering a brand new engine option, a comprehensive safety package, and seating for up to 8 passengers. The Pathfinder will debut with four trim levels, the S, SV, SR, and Platinum. Each one is fully redesigned and ready to tackle any adventure you could throw at it!

Exterior Design

The new Nissan Pathfinder features a larger and wider stance, providing an overall stronger and more aggressive appearance. It features Nissan’s signature “floating roof” aesthetic, achieved by pairing a body-color roof with black-painted pillars that create a gap in the pigment and give the impression of a roof that hovers over the SUV’s base. This version also features larger wheels that add to its athletic appearance, while standard LED lighting casts a brilliant glow from the headlights, fog lights, and taillights. The 2022 Pathfinder offers a wealth of color options, including five brand new two-tone colorways to fully customize your vehicle to fit your own unique style.

Interior Features

The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is a true family vehicle, with its standard seating capacity designed to accommodate 8 people comfortably. Indeed, the interior is massive, with a total volume of 164.6 cubic feet. The third-row bench features a 60/40 split-fold, while the second-row bucket seats offer EZ FLEX functionality to maneuver in and out without having to scramble. The glass in the Pathfinder’s windows has been updated to create a hushed and serene ambiance, featuring acoustic laminated glass in the front windshield, with thicker panes for the remaining windows. Additional storage space can be found by lifting up the rear cargo area floor, where you’ll now find a 54.1-liter luggage box to safely stow anything and everything you need for a weekend getaway. 

New Technology

Another notable aspect of the 2022 Pathfinder’s interior is the wide array of tech features adorning the dashboard. For starters, drivers now have the option of a fully digital dashboard where they can scroll through multiple menus on a 12.3-inch screen. There’s also a 9-inch infotainment touchscreen available, with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto smartphone integration standard on all models thanks to the NissanConnect system. Some available features include wireless smartphone integration, a Wi-Fi hotspot, a 13-speaker Bose sound system, a wireless smartphone charging pad, and Nissan Door-to-Door Navigation. 

Safety and Security

Nissan offers an impressive safety suite that comes standard on each trim level of the 2022 Pathfinder. Named the Nissan Safety Shield 360, this package includes features such as rear automatic braking, blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, intelligent forward collision warning, and more. These features are also paired with 10 standard airbags, which increases to 11 on the top-tier Platinum trim. In addition to these standard features, the Pathfinder takes things a step further with a new ProPILOT Assist system, which combines the technologies of intelligent cruise control with power steering assist to help manage multiple vehicle functions in anything from stop-and-go traffic to an open country road. ProPILOT Assist can also pair with the Door-to-Door navigation system to assist the driver when following turn-by-turn directions.
