Large SUV Pathfinder, made by Japanese carmaker Nissan, is heading into new generation. Although it will use same platform, crossover will be totally different. New features and technology gadgets are prepared. However, 2018 Nissan Pathfinder is going to keep its familiar look. Versatile crossover is bolder, with updates on exterior and interior. Furthermore, changes are expected on the engine which was used by latest model. Nevertheless, drivetrain will be tuned, and not new. Balance of power, price and strong appearance is the main advantage of this SUV.
2018 Nissan Pathfinder engine
We’ve heard that 2018 Nissan Pathfinder will use same drivetrain as its predecessor. Under the hood of the crossover should be 3.5- V6 powertrain. Power is upgraded to 260 horses. Then, updated transmission is paired with engine. A 2-speed CVT gearbox is modern system, which reduces fuel consumption. At the same time it improves performance. On the other side, new Pathfinder could use V8 unit. However, 3.8-l displacement is less likely. This engine is far from requirements of fuel economy, since new crossover will be rated 25 mpg. Hybrid power source is also possible, but there is no confirmation about it. However, we can hope.

New, breathtaking design, will be highlight of the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. There, we can find luxurious equipment, which is elegant by itself. However, designers added special touch to interior, so Pathfinder is even more elegant. Inside the crossover, there is room for 7 passengers. Plenty of room for legs and head and infotainment system provide smooth and relaxed ride. Third row of seats is foldable, and it enlarges cargo area. Notable change is dashboard. Designers decided to refresh interior with new details, especially on instrument panel. Furthermore, new display is placed, with navigation on higher trims. Air conditioning and audio system boost overall impression about 2018 Pathfinder.

Nevertheless, whenever 2018 Nissan Pathfinder appears, we believe its price won’t exceed $32,000. Higher trims will cost closer to $50,000, with AWD, navigation, and possibly V8 engine or hybrid drivetrain.
