New Nissan Pathfinder Specs and Pricing Announced
The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder has been given a facelift and is due to hit our showrooms in the coming weeks. So, as the new specs and pricing details are announced, what can we expect?
New Engine Options:
The new Nissan Pathfinder will be offered with a revised engine option. The revised V6 3.5 litre petrol engine now delivers 202 kW of power, which is a boost of 12 kW on the outgoing model. It has maintained the 2700 kilogram tow rating, so should still offer plenty of pulling power for most drivers.
Despite the boost in power, the new engine is claimed to be more efficient. Nissan HQ is claiming that the front drive wheel models will now offer 9.9 litre per 100 kilometres, which is down 0.1 litres, while the all wheel drive variants are also a little less thirsty, dropping from 10.3 litres per 100 kilometres to 10.1 litres.
Across the range, there will also be a hybrid drivetrain offered. This consists of a supercharged 2.5 litre petrol unit paired with an electric motor delivering 15 kW. This will provide a combined output of 188 kW and has a claimed fuel consumption of 8.6 litres per 100 kilometres on a combined cycle.
Other New Features:
There are some other notable highlights of the facelift including the inclusion of active safety systems. The 2017 Pathfinder will now be available with a comprehensive safety package including adaptive cruise control, autonomous emergency braking and rear cross traffic alert. The TI and ST-L variants will also feature a surround camera system.
On the entry level ST variant, there is very impressive standard equipment list. This includes 18 inch alloys, seven seats, eight way adjustable powered driver’s seat, LED daytime lights, cruise control, keyless start, rear parking sensors, rearview camera, tyre pressure monitor, privacy glass, 8.0 inch touchscreen and tri zone climate control.
The New Nissan Pathfinder Price Schedule:
The updated Pathfinder range will be in our showrooms in the next few weeks and starts at $41,990 for the V6 ST two wheel drive. The mid spec ST-L V6 starts at $53,690, and the TI V6 starts at $62,190. At the top of the range is the Hybrid AWD TI which has a Nissan Pathfinder price tag of $69,190.
