The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder offers up to 79.5 cu. ft. of cargo space with flexible storage arrangements. Seating for up to 7 in 3 rows of seats with Latch and Glide® technology and fold-flat opportunities make bringing passengers (and their stuff) a simple task. The Tri-Zone Climate Control System, available Climate Controlled (heated and cooled) front seats and heated steering wheel help to keep you and your passenger in your own personal comfort zone. Up front, the driver and passenger can enjoy music. Second-row passengers can watch movies, play video games, or plug in a laptop, all on dual 8″ monitors, listening on two wireless headsets. They can even mirror a compatible smartphone or tablet screen using the HDMI inputs. And the entire available system can be controlled through the touch-screen display on the dash.
The Nissan Pathfinder is a lineup of sport utility vehicles manufactured by Nissan since 1986, originally sharing Nissan’s compact pickup truck platform, and now in its fourth generation. The first generation Pathfinder was introduced as a two-door body-on-frame SUV, sharing styling and most components with the Nissan Hardbody Truck. Built on a ladder-type frame, the Pathfinder was Nissan’s response to the Chevrolet Blazer, Ford Bronco II, Jeep Cherokee, and non-American SUVs like the Toyota 4Runner, Honda Passport, and the Isuzu MU.
The second generation Pathfinder was introduced in late 1995 with revised styling using unibody rather than body on frame construction. The engine was upgraded to the VG33E, with 168 hp (125 kW) and 196 lb⋅ft (266 N⋅m) torque. For the 1999½ model year, the Pathfinder was freshened. In 2000, model year 2001 brought a new 240 hp (179 kW) V6 engine (for the Automatic transmission models). The Manual transmission models boasted 250 hp (186 kW) and 240-lbft of torque. This engine was the VQ35DE. The 4 cylinder engine option was no longer available.
In August 2003, Nissan unveiled Dunehawk Concept and showcased it at the IAA 2003 in Frankfurt (R51 design patents filed 8 September 2003), previewing the next Pathfinder’s design. At the 2004 North American International Auto Show, Nissan unveiled a completely redesigned Pathfinder for the 2005 model year. The new R51 Pathfinder uses the Nissan F-Alpha platform, thus returning to a body on frame construction. It is powered by a 4.0 L V6 engine VQ40DE (266 hp (198 kW), 288 lb⋅ft (390 N⋅m)) or a 2.5 L YD25DDTi (126 kW (171 PS; 169 hp), 403 N⋅m (297 lb⋅ft)) Turbo Diesel.
