Nissan Pathfinder 2012 – the first official pictures

Nissan has published a set of official photos for the new Nissan Pathfinder. The fourth generation of the model will be launched first this fall in the United States at a price of 28.000 USD. The new Pathfinder generation was unveiled a few days ago following the publication of several booklets with pictures. The new model will start initially in the USA where sales will begin this fall.

These pictures unveill a more aerodynamic Nissan Pathfinder, witth new curves and fluid lines. From a technical standpoint the situation is changing, Pathfinder abandons its classical separate chassis with a bodyshell solution. Thus, the new image of Pathfinder is changed from an off-roader to a “Street SUV”. Platform used is common with that of the Infiniti JX and the new model will be front-wheel drive or full.

The new Pathfinder is almost 300 kg lighter than the current generation, and Nissan says it will consume even less fuel. We don’t have any details regarding engines for the European market,  yet Nissan announced only one engine for the U.S. market. This is a 3.5-liter V6 petrol 260 hp associated with a CVT automatic gearbox.
