Updated 2017 Nissan Pathfinder range to land in March

More powerful engine and updated looks for Pathfinder…

The Nissan Pathfinder has been in for a significant update with the refreshed model set to land in Australian dealerships next month.

The good news is pricing remains essentially the same.

Headlining the changes being introduced to the seven-seat family SUV is a now more powerful and slightly more efficient V6 petrol engine.

Nissan has gone right through the 3.5 litre engine and the result is an additional 12kW of power and an extra 15Nm of torque.

Now boasting a hefty 202kW/340Nm, Pathfinder fuel economy is slightly better – down 0.1L/100km (2WD) and 0.2L/100km (AWD).

While the Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid also remains in 2017.

The supercharged 2.5 litre hybrid version delivers up to 188kW/330Nm and fuel consumption as low as 8.6L/100km.

Both engines are mated to an updated Nissan CVT automatic transmission that is said to offer more responsive acceleration.

Slightly stiffer suspension and quicker steering response are also being introduced.

Other changes include an autonomous emergency braking system, including intelligent cruise control, in mid and top-spec Pathfinder models.

Convenience is improved in the Pathfinder Ti with a new Motion-Activated tailgate feature – allowing wave of the foot open/close.

And all model grades benefit from fresh alloy wheel designs.
