The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder Offers Style and Substance

The Nissan Pathfinder is getting a complete overhaul for 2022, and it will come as a refreshing surprise to many Nissan fans. From sleek exterior body, lines feature a ‘floating’ roofline to a more capable drivetrain, the next year of the Pathfinder has the potential to make itself one of the best options on the affordable SUV market.

The newly redesigned Nissan Pathfinder

From the outside, the Nissan Pathfinder has always taken on a more subdued appearance, doing well to blend into the crowd and never really standing out. It wasn’t that the SUV looked bad, per-say, but it definitely wasn’t turning heads. There is no doubt that when redesigning the exterior of this car, Nissan set out to change that. While it still has the iconic Pathfinder styling cues, its more modern appearances make it look more appealing than ever.

The infotainment system pairs well with the digital dashboard to give it a high-tech feel that brings the car into the competition, where it finally competes with other border-line luxury SUVs.
