2017 Nissan Pathfinder Pros

The Pathfinder gets several important upgrades for 2017, the most noticeable of which is the new front end styling. Now featuring Nissan's signature "Boomerang" headlights, the Pathfinder looks more aggressive and sleek. Equally important are the changes going on beneath its sheet metal. A redesigned V6 now powers the Pathfinder making 24 more horsepower than the outgoing engine while simultaneously delivering more fuel economy on the highway. Other enhancements for 2017 include new driver assistance technologies such as a Forward Emergency Braking system, an Intelligent Cruise Control system and an Around View Monitor system. In addition, a top of the line Midnight Edition is available this year, with black exterior accents and mean looking, 20-inch black wheels.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder Model Highlights

The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is powered by a 3.5L V6 making 284 horsepower. The Pathfinder is rated at 27 mpg on the highway and 20 mpg in the city for 2-wheel-drive models, while 4-wheel-drive versions are rated only 1-mpg lower in both ratings. Part of this economy is attributable to Nissan's standard continuously variable transmission (CVT), which, unlike traditional automatics, has an infinite number of gear ratios and is consequently always able find the best compromise between economy and power.

With a third row for seating and passenger capacity up to seven, Nissan boasts that the Pathfinder has best-in-class front headroom, front foot room and overall interior passenger volume. While the Pathfinder has an additional 8.4 cubic feet of interior room over the outgoing model, it also makes better use of its interior space, with a flat load-floor and second-row seats that slide a full five-and-a-half inches to make third-row access much easier. The third row even has a reclining feature, which is uncommon for vehicles of this size.

The 2017 Pathfinder comes in four different trims -- S, SV, SL and Platinum -- which allows for much flexibility in pricing and features. Base S models come with plenty of nice features, including attractive 18-inch wheels, tri-zone automatic climate control, a 6-speaker stereo with auxiliary input, keyless entry and a dashboard-mounted monitor. SV Pathfinder models add roof rails, automatic headlights, Bluetooth connectivity, a rear view monitor and Nissan's Intelligent Key system. The SL Pathfinder begins to add some serious luxury, featuring leather seating, heated steering wheel, a remote engine start and a power rear liftgate. It also features additional exterior amenities such as fog lamps, heated mirrors and chrome side moldings. An SL Premium Package adds a dual panorama moonroof, a tow hitch and a Bose sound system. The Platinum Pathfinder is the next step up and features 20-inch wheels, a navigation system and climate-controlled front seats. The Platinum Family Entertainment Package includes pretty much every feature listed above plus a tri-zone entertainment system.

Safety is addressed in the Pathfinder with dual stage front airbags, side impact airbags, side curtain airbags and a rollover sensor. Preventative safety systems include anti-lock brakes, stability control, traction control and a tire pressure monitoring system. SV-level and better Pathfinders also include a rear view monitor to make backing out of parking spaces easier and safer.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder Model News

Between its seating capacity and fuel economy, the Pathfinder makes a good value play. While previous Pathfinders competed with truck-like SUVs like the Toyota 4Runner, the 2017 Pathfinder aims instead to compete more closely with crossover vehicles such as the Toyota Highlander, bringing more space and refinement to the market at a slight cost to seldom used off-road capabilities.
