Through that little-known social media site known as Facebook, Nissan has released the first official images of its production 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. As you can see, there is little deviation in styling between the model that will be in showrooms and the concept shown at the Detroit Auto Show in January.
The Pathfinder will almost certainly be powered by Nissan's trusty VQ V6 in 3.5-litre trim. Chances are very good that power will be sent through a Continuously Variable Transmission to the front wheels, or to all four wheels through available all-wheel drive.
No word on fuel economy numbers yet, but given its lighter construction, Nissan foresees as crossover that is 25-per cent more fuel-efficient than the outgoing Pathfinder.
Built on Nissan's FF-L platform shared with the new Altima and Infiniti JX, it will have seating for seven. Nissan also says it will boast a "full-size interior," and judging on our time mucking around in the concept's cabin (not to mention the very similar JX) it will indeed be quite accommodating indeed.
