Posted on January 29, 2020
Sporty, versatile, and ready for fun, the Nissan Pathfinder puts the adventure back into driving. Nissan offers the 2020 Pathfinder in six trims - S, SV Tech 4WD, SL Premium 4WD, SV Rock Creek, SL Rock Creek, and Platinum 4WD. Manufacturer's recommended starting prices for the Pathfinder range from $36,498 for the base S model, to $49,498 for the high-end Platinum 4WD edition.
Ready for Adventure
All 2020 Pathfinder models (excluding the base S trim) come standard with Nissan Intelligent All-Wheel Drive. A 284-horsepower 3.5-litre DOHC 24-valve V6 engine linked to a Nissan Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) comes standard on all versions, as well. The Pathfinder's V6 engine features multi-point direct fuel injection, an electronic drive-by-wire throttle, and continuously variable valve timing on both intake and exhaust valves. Hill Start Assist comes standard on all trims, and 4-wheel drive models also get Hill descent Control. Independent strut front suspension, multi-link independent rear suspension, Dual Flow Path shock absorbers, and electronic, hydraulic power-assisted speed-sensitive steering help the Pathfinder handle the toughest back roads. Other standard performance features include vented 4-wheel anti-lock brakes with Electronic Brake Force Distribution and Brake Assist.
All the Latest Technology
Every new Pathfinder comes with push-button ignition, remote keyless entry, and NissanConnect. Nissan Intelligent Key, remote engine start, and Nissan's Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection also come standard on all but the base S models. The Pathfinder's Advanced Drive-Assist Display - a 178 mm colour LCD screen located in the center of the instrument cluster - displays service warnings, trip data, navigation settings, maps, and even call and text information. The Nissan Navigation System, (included on all except S models), features bird's eye views, 3D maps, and traffic-based navigation.
A Quiet, Comfortable, and Well-Appointed Cabin
Standard creature comforts found on this year's Pathfinder include tri-zone automatic temperature control, leather-appointed seats (excluding S models), and a heated steering wheel (also excluding S trims). Nissan offers several different versions of its Nissan Connect infotainment system on the Pathfinder. Depending on the trim, most buyers enjoy premium sound thanks to a 12-speaker Bose audio system that employs Acoustic Waveguide technology. Platinum 4WD models add a tri-zone entertainment system consisting of dual head-restraint-mounted 203-mm monitors, two wireless headphones, and an included remote control. All pathfinder infotainment systems also feature Bluetooth connectivity for hands-free calling and music streaming, MP3/WMA CD playback capability, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility.
Nissan makes some of the safest vehicles in the world thanks to the Nissan Safety Shield - a suite of passive safety features combined with advanced technologies. Standard or available driver-assist technologies found on the Pathfinder include Active Brake Limited Slip, Blind Spot Warning, and Intelligent Emergency Braking. Along with a full suite of strategically placed airbags, the Pathfinder also employs Zone Body Construction with front and rear crumple zones to keep occupants out of harm's way in the event of a collision. All new Pathfinders come with a factory-installed anti-theft and Nissan vehicle immobilizer systems
