Nissan Pathfinder Concept: Photo Gallery

Nissan Pathfinder Concept

The Nissan Pathfinder was one of the few remaining midsized body-on-frame SUVs left in the class, but now the model will convert to a more driver-friendly, car-based platform when it hits dealerships this fall.

Despite its car-based foundation, the Nissan Pathfinder concept is still pretty boxy looking.

For a car based crossover, the design looks very good, it's not overly boxy nor curvy. I prefer this over the Infiniti JX. Nice color too. Any word on the engine, transmission, mpg? Even though I'm a traditionalist when it comes to SUVs, I think this will probably sell better than the previous generation's. Sad, but true.


Im the opposite. I prefer the look of the JX to this. I will miss the door handles on the C-pilar, that was unique. This looks a little too minivan-ish to me now


I've read that the drivetrain will be the same as the JX and the Murano and MPG will be similar to those as well.

I'm not liking this or the JX. I was really excited about the JX until I saw it, read about the drivetrain and then looked at the dimensions. It's just too big for my liking. I think Infiniti should should have combined the EX, FX and JX into one vehicle with some decent rear seat room and more squared off to provide more carrying capacity and stuck with the RWD/AWD, 3.5 and 7speed tranny. If you really need to carry 7 or 8 people the QX56 is available rather than cramming them into something like this.


I like this much more so than the Murano which I think is the ugliest thing on the road today.


Am I the only one that is saddened? I absolutely hate all these companies turning their trucks into FWD trash.


...more garbage...I am so disappointed with the current design trends at GM, Nissan/Infiniti, Honda/Acura...


I like this. I don't like the real SUV b/c it's too tall. I like a lower car like the minivan but it's way too long. I want to get this if the price is comparable with the minivan.


Is it just me, or are cars getting uglier by the redesign?


Used to be a rugged truck and now it looks like Kia married Hyundai and actually had kids

Now it looks like every other large Asian crossover.

Nissan did a great job designing this all new Nissan Pathfinder. It looks a sporty , rugged truck but at the same time very luxurious and convenient. This is definitely a vehicle our family will be considering to purchase.


Sometime I wonder what the hell the designers over at Nissan are thinking. This is a perfect example of a vehicle that will be redesigned a couple years from now because it doesn't sell.
