When creating the Nissan Pathfinder 2022, new — fifth generation, the Japanese company has made a choice in favor of a serious update the appearance of the car.

A more global technical modernization of this model was not dignified, perhaps because of the lack of success in terms of sales in the U.S. market.

Until 2017, fourth-generation Pathfinders, which were assembled in St. Petersburg, were sold in Russia.

The new SUVs will be delivered by the manufacturer from the USA, and the first sales of cars of 2022 model year in our country are planned for the next summer-autumn.

Overview of the 5th generation

We can say that the manufacturer has put up with the current situation and chose not to spend a lot of resources to fight with the leaders of the segment of mid-sized SUV — Ford Explorer, Toyota Highlander and Jeep Grand Cherokee, but tried to fix some of the shortcomings, for example, replacing the unpopular variator for a full-fledged «automatic».

The new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder continues to exploit the nearly 20-year-old crossover D-platform, which seems reasonable given that the crossover clearly isn’t going to look into hybrid technology.

Hence the preservation of the wheelbase (2,900 mm) and almost the same dimensions of the new body:

length — 5004 mm (-41 mm);
width — 1961 mm;
Height — 1768 mm.

Off-road truck remains a basic 4×4, and for the 4×4 version Japanese have prepared a new hydraulic clutch, which will now be helped by the selector with seven presets: Standard, Sport, Mud/Rut, Sand, Snow, Eco and Tow.

The truck has the same engine, but now the Pathfinder can tow up to 2.72 tons of trailers which is 400 kg. more than Toyota Highlander.

The external changes are significant, as the car actually received a new body.

The body became less streamlined and more «faceted», the overhangs of the wheel arches became bigger and the design of the front end is made in the style of the current Patrol.

The Pathfinder crossover now flaunts the two-color body paint with a black roof, but the much more important improvement is better noise insulation.

Japanese have removed noisy variator, they have generously added «noise» in the engine compartment, floor space and doorways, and also made the windshield and rear door windows thicker.

Interior

The interior of the SUV has simplified, but it clearly played to the benefit of ergonomics.

The central tunnel became two-storey, the central ventilation deflectors became even smaller and the climate control unit is larger.

The digital dashboard can be presented in the form of 7- or 12.3-inch display, and in the center of the front console is installed 8 or 9-inch touchscreen.

Also the new Pathfinder can be considered as more spacious since there are three full seats on the third row. On the second — it is offered to put a sofa or captain’s chairs with removable luggage box between them.

Technical stuffing

In America, the 2022 model year Nissan Pathfinder has retained its only powertrain — a 3.5-liter gasoline six rated at 288 hp. (351 Nm).

From now on, it will be complemented by a nine-speed hydromechanical transmission in the form of an automatic transmission, and another novelty is the new steering mechanism with an electric booster.

In terms of equipment the new Pathfinder can brag of options in the form of a three-zoned «climate», adaptive «cruise», panoramic roof, all-around view cameras and a powerful audio system Bose with 13 speakers.

Thus, this Japanese model has not received a modern autopilot ProPilot which is put, for example, on the European Qashqai.
