2021 Nissan Pathfinder: early look inside!




 The top picture is the interior (still heavily camouflaged) of the all-new generation Nissan Pathfinder.

This is a very eagerly awaited new model from Nissan. Since the current model is 8 years old. When I test drove one for a full week a couple of years ago, I found it to be one of the worst choices in its class. (And that's 2 years ago)

Since we know have the Kia Telluride and Hyundai Palisade. These seem to have redefined what a 3-row crossover should be. And how much you are getting for your money.

Under the spy shot, I posted pictures of the all-new Rogue interior. Which is great. As you can see, it already seems the new Pathfinder interior could end up using a similar design theme. Which is a great idea.

This will no doubt look and feel much more upscale than the current generation.

Let's hope the powertrain is also. As it is snow, the old V6 and CVT just can't match the competition. Let's hope Nissan's new 9 speed ends up in the Pathfinder. As well as the Frontier's 3.8 Liter V6. Unless they are thinking of the 3.0 liter from Infiniti?

And will there be an Infiniti version, Qx60?

It seems that the Pathfinder might just be an extended Rogue from what I see so far.

Yes re the QX60, Vince posted about it already

The family midsize SUV is super competitive with almost all new design models now! Only manufacturers who has not been released a new model are: Honda Pilot, Chevrolet Traverse and the Pathfinder. Already new: Explorer, Palisade, Telluride, Hylander.

The dash looks nicer than a MB.

I think you can blame the Mazda CX9 for the increased build quality and quality of materials usage in this class. They set the bar way up high in 2016.

Does Mazda CX-9 still have the bizarre infotainment setup where you cannot touch screen but force to used the smallish 6”-7” LED screen using a turn knob?

I miss my 2002 Pathfinder terribly.

the current generation just did not impress me, particularly the CVT, which I had in my Maxima and in my current Altima where it's okay.

Nissan I sure hope this has the 9A and no CVT and comes in monarch orange. I am holding off on my next vehicle purchase just to see what this new Pathfinder is about, I hope you don't disappoint!
