The refined look yet rugged capabilities make the 2023 Pathfinder a standout in the midsize market. Its innovative driver assist technologies prioritize safe journeys while its modern connectivity interface means seamless connection to your favorite content and contacts.
The 2023 Nissan Pathfinder offers five trim levels: S, SV, SL, Rock Creek, and Platinum.
Exterior features and style
The look of the 2023 Pathfinder will turn heads with its impressive capability and refined styling. A sampling of bold colors clad the exterior, but it’s the two-tone option that makes the SUV unmistakable in the crowd. Opt for a bold hue like Scarlet Ember and pair it with a Super Black roof or the subtle yet striking Baja Storm Metallic shade and Super Black roof. A crisp suite of lighting looks sharp whether on or off while the rear spoiler offers a sporty touch.
The 2023 Nissan Pathfinder offers a robust power rating at 284 horsepower courtesy of the 3.5-liter V6, and a substantial towing capacity of 6,000 pounds when properly equipped. To customize the SUV’s performance so you can easily conquer every terrain and condition, you can toggle among seven available Drive and Terrain modes. Response is on point with a smooth-shifting nine-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters that churns out 259 lb-ft of torque. The powertrain delivers 27 mpg on the highway, allowing you to cover more ground with fewer stops at the pump. The available Intelligent 4x4 drivetrain offers impressive traction. When you are hauling heavy equipment or a trailer, you’ll feel more confident with the available tow mode and trailer and sway control and Intelligent Around View® Monitor.
Interior comfort and utility
You can accommodate seven with available captain’s chairs in the second row or eight seats depending on the seating arrangement you choose for the Pathfinder. When you need to haul big equipment or bulky outdoor gear like a snowboard, you can fold down the rear seats to reveal 80.5 cubic feet of space. Getting to your stuff or packing the cargo area is more convenient with the available Motion Activated Liftgate. Simply kick under the bumper to open the gate. For items you prefer to keep concealed, stash them in the under-floor storage in the cargo area. The climate-controlled front seats help deliver optimal comfort no matter the weather outside. The available panoramic moonroof allows you to take advantage of the best weather days. The available Remote Engine Start System lets you set the ideal temperature in the cabin so you and your passengers can be comfortable as soon as you enter the space.
The NissanConnect® infotainment system features smartphone integration and a responsive interface with bold graphics and easy-to-choose selections for your entertainment options. The system offers a large available 9-inch screen and a standard 8-inch color touch-screen display. You’ll never stress over finding your way when you upgrade the system with Door-to-Door Navigation with Premium Traffic.
Most SUVs offer a bevy of advanced driver assist technologies, but typically you have to upgrade to higher, more expensive trim levels. The 2023 Pathfinder defies standards with the Safety Shield® 360. It encompasses six technologies, and it’s standard on every trim. Under proper conditions, you’ll have access to tech that monitors threats, alerts you to their presence, intervenes when necessary, and lights your night drives. Systems include Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection, Rear Automatic Braking, Blind Spot Warning, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Lane Departure Warning, and High Beam Assist.
