Just one year after introducing the all-new Pathfinder, Nissan is already giving the capable SUV an adventure-ready trim level called Rock Creek. With standard four-wheel drive, and off-road-tuned suspension with a 5/8-inch lift, and various other trail-ready features, the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek arrives as the ultimate ride for families with active lifestyles.
“The 2022 Pathfinder was all about a ‘return to rugged,’ and the Pathfinder Rock Creek takes that spirit even further,” said Nissan’s Michael Colleran. “From the urban jungle to the natural beauty that can be reached within minutes from the city, Pathfinder Rock Creek has both the style and hardware to create an adventure just about anywhere.”
Compared to the regular Pathfinder, the Rock Creek’s 3.5-liter V6 has a slight power bump thanks to revised fuel mapping. It puts out 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque with premium fuel, up from 284 horsepower and 259 lb-ft with just regular 87-octane. It can tow up to 6,000 pounds and haul another 220 pounds on its tubular roof rack.
Additionally, the Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek features 18-inch beadlock-style wheels wrapped in all-terrain tires designed to find purchase in all kinds of driving environments. But it also has visual upgrades like exclusive leatherette seats with Rock Creek embroidery, orange contrast stitching all throughout the cabin, and four two-tone exterior color options.
The Pathfinder Rock Creek will go on sale in late summer 2022. Place an order for yours at Rothrock Motors in Allentown, Pennsylvania!
