The concept of 2025 Nissan Pathfinder has been shown off during Auto Shanghai Event 2023. It was shown together with the Qashqai. The SUV is included in the lineup options of Nissan’s new products. Nissan promises that the new Pathfinder will be the company’s game changer model that may revolutionize the whole industry. With the combination of innovative technologies and visually appealing design, this new model isn’t only highly appealing for those Pathfinder loyal fans, but also those who may originally not be attracted to the vehicle.
The Updated Plan
If you take a look at Nissan’s lineups in China, the model is claimed to offer great combo of comfort, functionality, versatility (the family friendly type), and durability. It’s obvious that the auto maker is determined to maintain the tradition.
Let’s not forget that Pathfinder has always been related to sophisticated technology and family friendly vehicle, but Nissan has elevated their game higher. The auto maker is able to mix down the classic design elements of Nissan with the modern Chinese artistic (and aesthetic) appeal. If you want to enjoy adventurous driving experience while at the same time enjoying a flexible ride, Pathfinder is the perfect option. And let’s not forget that the vehicle has been proven to tackle both the offroad settings as well as urban roads, so it’s something promising.
Styling and Appearance
The Pathfinder is created as this midsize SUV with 3-row layout, and it’s designed to be not only functional but also capable. It’s slotted between the Murano (which is the smaller version) and the Armada (the big one). It’s against other popular SUVs (also with 3-row layout) like VW Atlas, Honda Pilot, and Kia Telluride.
From the viewed images, the 2025 Nissan Pathfinder seems to undertake a drastic updated work. At least, the new SUV looks pretty different from the previous model. You can see the prominent and dramatic V-shape outline for the front grille, creating somewhat more aggressive and bolder appearance. The grille looks perfect with matching slim headlights and updated LED tech. Not only it looks better, but it also delivers better visibility for the road.
You should expect reworked body too, with sleeker silhouette, sharper lines, and better styling. You have to admit that the vehicle somewhat looks futuristic, almost alien-like. The SUV has this more modern appeal with stronger appearance. With sharper body lines and attractive curves, the new SUV has this appealing athletic and muscular look. It’s safe to say that it’s bolder and more aggressive.
What about the interior cabin? Changes won’t only happen on the outside, but they will also happen on the inside. The Pathfinder has always been known for its quality ambiance within the cabin, but the new 2025 Nissan Pathfinder will have an improved look. The look will be minimalist and simple, and yet there is something modern about it. The dashboard is sleek, and it looks good with a 9-inch display for the infotainment system.
The cabin is roomy and cozy. It is able to carry 7 adult passengers comfortably, making it super comfy for every driving adventure, including daily commuter, family trips, and even a little but of offroad exploration.
Powertrain and Performance
The vehicle will be running on V6 unit of 3.5 liter capacity that can generate 284 hp and 259 Nm of torque. It’s matched with auto 9 speed transmission, delivering fast and smooth gear shifts. It’s also available in both all wheel and front wheel driving options, which means that everyone can enjoy driving this SUV. It offers 21 mpg for the city and 27 mpg for the highway, which isn’t bad after all. The auto start and stop function is pretty handy to save fuel when the vehicle stops for a while.
Launch Date and Price
The Pathfinder is supposed to launch in 2024, around fall months. The price should start at around $32,000 going upward to $45,000. If you want a perfect option for reliability, flexibility, and spaciousness, the 2025 Nissan Pathfinder would be the ideal pick.
