So far very little detail is available about the new Nissan Pathfinder, but what we can say is that the car will make its debut at the upcoming Detroit Motor Show in January next year.
From the few spy shots that have been leaked to the motoring press it is immediately clear that the new model will have a more sweeping appearance than its predecessor. According to Nissan their new flagship four-wheel drive "takes all of the Pathfinder's traditional SUV hallmarks and wraps them in a new platform and dramatic new aerodynamic body."
Amongst others this means that the new Pathfinder will no longer use the traditional ladder frame chassis we have become used to, with a separate ladder frame to which the body is bolted. Instead it will use a modern modular system where the body and chassis are integrated.
On top of having a very stylish appearance, the new Pathfinder will be more refined and upmarket than its predecessor. This will enable the new model to more effectively compete with the Land Rover Discovery, because it carries a lower price tag.
The Pathfinder will be a seven-seater, the cabin will be top quality and in the UK it will have a powerful diesel engine, giving it loads of off-road capability.
More information about the new model will only be available after the Detroit Motor Show, but prepare yourself for a price tag of about £32,000 for the privilege of owning one of these cars.
