Nissan Pathfinder Concept Coming to 2012 Detroit Auto Show

2012 Nissan Pathfinder
Nissan says it will show off its next-generation Pathfinder concept and an electric van concept at the 2012 Detroit auto show next month. The new Pathfinder will go on sale in fall 2012, according to Nissan. Besides that, we don’t know much else about the SUV replacement.

Nissan also said it will show an electric van concept that would represent a future production EV geared toward businesses, similar to the 2012 Ford Transit Connect Electric.

We’ll have more information once both concepts are unveiled Jan. 9.

I know this is only a concept, but based on unofficial spy shots I'm seeing on the internet lately, it seems like Nissan's Pathfinder is giving up on the body on frame ruggedness of SUVs yet again. Their inconsistent decision on which chassis to use is probably why they do not have such a strong off road presence. However, they are staying true to the model's name, and that is always trying to FIND the right PATH in the marketplace. Pathetic, if you ask me, since they already have the Murano for CUV duties. Should've just stretched and enlarged that a bit so that it can offered with the 3rd row that so many demand, but hardly ever need. Oh well, at least the 4Runner is still true to the bone.


It's also lost it's trademark handles.
