Pathfinder Concept unveiled at 2012 North American International Auto Show

Nissan’s new Pathfinder Concept made its debut earlier this month at the Detroit Auto Show revealing its return to a more flexible unibody platform.

“With the upcoming, fourth-generation model, we’re about to re-invent the Nissan Pathfinder again. We’ve created a vehicle with an extraordinary balance of SUV capability, thoughtful technology and premium comfort to lead the segment once again – and help owners accomplish more in the real world, not just off-road,” said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc.

When the Pathfinder first appeared in 1986, it revolutionised the SUV segment. Now, nearly 3 decades and 1.2 million sales later, it’s at it again. Boasting a new aerodynamic exterior, weighing substantially less than the previous design and utilising a refined V6 engine and next-generation CVT, it’s expected to show a 25% improvement in fuel economy. It will also feature an intuitive four-wheel drive system and competitive towing capacity.

More details on the new 3-row, 7-seater Pathfinder, are expected to be released in the near future, while it’s scheduled to go on sale in the fall of 2012 in the States.
