The 3.5-l DOHC V6 could be used again, with some upgrades. Mated to a CVT gearbox, this unit should deliver just under 300 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. Since 2017 Pathfinder is meant to be a vehicle good for all kind of terrains and conditions, all-wheel drive system is expected as standard, while the drivers that do not need power from all wheels could purchase crossover with FWD.

  1. This is not some 2017 redesign! It is just the same 2015/2016 vehicle! I have been waiting for a redesign for the Nissan Pathfinder, since it hasn’t seen a redesign since 2013. But everywhere I go, they keep putting the old style vehicle pictures in and say it is a redesign

    1. I completely agree. I am looking for a REAL redesign. Like the Murano and other lines.

    2. I work for a Nissan Dealership, We personally have training on the new 2017 Pathfinder in the middle of June(this month) If you would like to email me your information to pknipp@pinnaclenissan.com I would be happy to send you pictures of the New redesign once they hit our store!!!

  2. What do you find wrong with the design it has now? Just curious – looking at buying one.

  3. after 25 years of owning a pathfinder i will finally move on…
    terrible looking vehicle

  4. I think the present design is ugly . I have own the last 3 design but refuse to get the present design it looks ordinary . I might have to look elsewhere

  5. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I have the 2013 Pathfinder on a lease. And comparing it to everything 2015 or earlier. I think it has the most attractive lines of any SUV on the road. 2016/17 lines are changing on many SUVs. but windows are getting smaller to accommodate the ‘sleeker’ design. I’ll take bigger Windows every day…just saying. Planning on leasing another Pathfinder.

    1. I’d be happy to help you lease a new one!!! Email me at pknipp@Pinnaclenissan.com

  6. I agree Im bummed the pathfinder looks like its already 10 years old

  7. LOL… seems they finally moved to a full Saab Copy with the LED on the top of the lights… Mind you this look is nearly a 10yr old design.. Do they have a design department or just a copy anything department?
