2013 Nissan Pathfinder study shows its face and tail

The next Pathfinder from the Japanese car manufacturer Nissan is planned to make its international debut at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show which is taking place on January 9th. Just like Toyota's teasing photos revealing the upcoming NS4 Concept car, Nissan has recently released two teasing images that show the crossover's face and rear end, after having previously presented a single darkened image of the Pathfinder concept. Disclosing a softer, less rugged, and more modern look than the current model, these photos show that the Pathfinder which will be presented in Detroit will not feature major differences as compared to the production model set to hit the car markets in North America next fall, although the company's representatives insist on calling it a concept. However, one should take into consideration the fact the Nissan faced a similar situation with the Infiniti JX crossover last year. According to Nissan, the current model's body-on-frame construction for a unibody design turning the Pathfinder into a crossover has been abandoned because the new seven-seater model is able to take all of Pathfinder's traditional SUV hallmarks, wrapping them in a new platform and dramatic new aerodynamic design. As far as the powertrain is concerned, Nissan has not provided details, but it is expected that the Pathfinder will receive its power from the firm's VQ series V6 mated to a CVT and an all-wheel drive available as optional. Until more information appears, feel free to share opinions in the comments section below.
