Summer is upon us and as far as Nissan has in store for us, we will be eligible to start the new generation of Nissan Pathfinder. The model, which was redesigned one last time for 2013, was in dire need of an update.

Of course, we can’t wait to get behind the wheel to get a good idea of it, but until then, as usual, we find ourselves buffeted by information about what to expect. Looking at the Pathfinder mission, we thought it would be a good idea to share some of the details that Nissan has provided regarding download capabilities with you.
For existing owners who might be interested in the new version, or for anyone else considering changing models soon in this category, here is some relevant data.
Despite very similar exterior dimensions, Nissan has found a way to increase the interior space. Thus, for 2022, the latter increases from 154 cubic feet (4,361 liters) to 164.6 cubic feet (4,661 liters), which will translate into more space for passengers, as well as for equipment loading.
This feat was achieved thanks to the widening of the rear track and the overall width of the car. The fairway has also been enlarged at the height of the rear wheels.
“We took a close look at every angle to make this SUV as versatile as possible, while providing powerful capabilities. Our goal was to convert the Pathfinder into a multi-functional vehicle on wheels, making it the SUV of choice for hardworking and adventurous families.”
– Jared Sallam, Vice President, Product and Service Planning, Nissan, USA and Canada
Thanks to this additional internal volume, the Pathfinder 2022 now provides easier access to cargo, as well as to passengers. It provides space for eight people if needed. To this end, three booster seats can be added to the second row, two to the third row. This is the first for the model.
In the second row, however, captain-type seats can still be availed. Better, the center console can be removed in this range without using tools. The width between the two seats will be seven inches, giving you an idea of what type of body can slide in this place.
Up front, due to the small electric gear selector, the center console now offers two storage areas – a conventional console and a new lane area below. This configuration adds 13.4 liters of storage. The tunnel underneath the console can accommodate items like a handbag, toolbox, or full-size tablet, while the traditional console provides space for small items. In total, 19.5 liters of storage can be found here, almost three times what would be found on the previous model.
Plus, there’s a new storage shelf above the glove compartment, perfect for phones, sunglasses, or similar sized items. The glove box contains a strap for storing the owner’s manual securely, while providing additional storage space. Pathfinder also has 16 cup holders.
“Whether it’s at a hardware store, planning a family day trip to a track, or just taking the kids and their friends after training, the new Pathfinder 2022 makes life less complicated and more adventurous,” added Jared Haslam.
