2017 Nissan Pathfinder Updates

The Nissan Pathfinder is one of the best crossovers on the market, and it just received a mid-cycle refresh. Here are some of the best 2017 Nissan Pathfinder updates that are sure to leave buyers feeling impressed drive after drive.

Starting with the exterior, the Pathfinder has new front and rear fascias along with an updated V-motion grille and fog lights. With these styling enhancements, the Pathfinder is more aerodynamic than before with a 0.326 coefficient of drag. Drivers will also appreciate the motion-activated power liftgate and outside mirrors with integrated turn signals.


Inside, passengers may notice a redesigned center console, new cloth upholstery, and new metallic and wood trim accents. The standard 8-inch touchscreen display powers the NissanConnect Services that includes SiriusXM Travel Link.

One of the biggest updates, however, can be found under the hood. The 2017 Pathfinder comes with a direction injection 3.5-liter V6 that delivers 284 horsepower, 259 lb-ft of torque, and delivers a best-in-class towing capacity of 6,000 pounds.

Safety-wise, the Pathfinder gets some critical updates. These include an Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection, Intelligent Cruise Control, and Forward Emergency Braking.

The updated 2017 Nissan Pathfinder will be coming to Rothrock Nissan later this year.
