The all-new 2021 Nissan Pathfinder will gain a totally new design. New spy shots are the latest proof, and as the reports already predicted, Nissan will facelift this model. The Pathfinder model will go on sale this summer, and it will introduce the latest exterior changes. As a result, we will see a new model with more attractiveness and various visual refreshments.
Moreover, the interior is getting new modern touches and a higher level of comfort. You can also expect more standard equipment than in the current model. The 2021 Pathfinder will most likely hit the roads as the new-generation model. However, its current D platform should remain. Furthermore, that means the engine lineup should carry over.
2021 Pathfinder Spy Shots
The spy shots of the 2021 Nissan Pathfinder are showing the latest design changes. However, some parts are still not visible. Additionally, false panels are hiding most of the exterior upgrades. On the other hand, this SUV shows some parts, such as the front grille. The front fascia hosts larger grille, and the headlights will be slightly reshaped. Interestingly, the new Pathfinder will slightly downsize.
Still, don’t expect a significant dimensional change. As we said, Nissan will stick to its current D platform. Upper trim levels should gain more chrome accents and possibly new wheels that will be offered as standard. Nissan will release more details closer to the release date, so we’ll know more about the final design.
The interior of the new-gen 2021 Nissan Pathfinder will remain attractive and roomy as always before. The new model will deliver various upgrades. That mostly includes the latest high-tech amenities. Moreover, the Japanese manufacturer will also provide a longer list of standard features. You don’t have to worry about comfort, and this mid-size SUV should now arrive with an even higher level of comfort. There will be up to four trim levels where the base trim level offers a standard 8-inch touchscreen.
Moreover, you can expect more USB ports and tri-zone climate control. The SL model will gain a new 13-speaker sound system and leather upholstery. The front seats are heated and ventilated while the Platinum trim comes with even more luxury. That includes a panoramic sunroof, premium sound system, and latest driver-assistance aids.
Engine Specs and Rumors
The approaching 2021 Nissan Pathfinder will continue to ride on its D platform. This architecture provides a front-wheel-drive setup, and it is also available in the Altima model. Moreover, Maxima and Murano are using the very same underpinnings. Once again, Nissan will offer a new optional four-cylinder powertrain with the CVT automatic transmission. However, the exact figures were not precise. Still, reports are predicting an engine with 300 horsepower.
Until Nissan confirms these speculations, a 3.5-liter V6 will remain standard powertrain choice. The reliable V6 gasoline engine delivers 284 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Another interesting rumor is a hybrid version, which is very unlikely for 2021. Whatsoever, Nissan will have to change the platform and other mechanical parts completely.
