2020 Nissan Pathfinder comes as a not much-changed model since the manufacturer obviously plans to fully redesign it for the next year. However, the model is still very attractive and represents the best in the class, thanks to the simple and modest design and strong engine. There are no many changes from the past year model, thus.
- The model is very large and practical.
- There is a strong engine under the hood.
- The size of the car is not followed by modern design.
- The cabin is a bit tight in the third row.
When 2020 Nissan Pathfinder is compared with the Toyota Highlander, only a few changes are visible, like unique grille and maybe slightly different shape of the rear end. Otherwise, the model is very long and wide, with the prolonged rear end, allowing large cargo space and needed height for the large cargo. When the front end is about, it has simple, but recognizable V-shape of the chromatic grille, and maybe a little old-fashioned front light. The model is driven on 18-inch wheels that grow to impressive 20-inch in higher trims. It makes the model closer to large and aggressive Mazda CX-5, but only in size.
The manufacturer has made few significant changes in term of technology in 2020 Nissan Pathfinder, but those are still usual in the class that the model belongs to. Some of them are heating of the steering wheel and the seats (but they could be cooled, too), Bose audio system, surround-view camera and leather upholstery in higher trims. The dashboard has a large 8-inch touchscreen as a part of the impressive center cluster, framed with chrome in the middle of the wide dashboard. The cabin is very large and comfortable, with optional enlarging of the cargo space thanks to dropped rear seats.
There is only one engine that manufacturer offered in 2020 Nissan Pathfinder. It is strong and reliable for this size of the truck, a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 284 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque. The transmission is only CVT, in any possible trim version. However, there is optional front and all-wheel driving system, which actually change the fuel consumption, but not significantly. This vehicle could tow around 6,000 pounds, which make it a great option for heavy load and duty.
2020 Nissan Pathfinder Release Date and Price
It is for sure that 2020 Nissan Pathfinder comes next year for the price of $23,000. The new model comes as actually not much changed, so the price should not be different from the last year’s models. The highest price could be around $50,000 when the model includes leather upholstery and all additions that the manufacturer could offer. If you are not interested in this version of the Pathfinder, you should wait next year, when the new model will be on the factory line.
