Nissan Pathfinder

Japanese carmaker Nissan has been working hard developing the production version of the Pathfinder concept which has been introduced for the first time at the Detroit Motor Show. The specialists have offered different photos of the production version of the Pathfinder on their Facebook official account and there are not a lot of differences between it and the concept we had the opportunity to see in Detroit at the Motor Show. The carmaker plans to present it to the public in an official way this year and to offer it for sale in the fall.

The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder will be a uni-body crossover and the small difference between the concept and the production version will be the addition of plastic protectors for the side skirts and the lower part of the bumpers. The new version of the Pathfinder has a bolder front fascia and it features new headlights and a stronger grille. At the back, the model has a tailgate-mounted spoiler. The carmaker still has to present some photos with the interior just to know what kind of material they used. Of course, everyone expects to see an attractive design with high-quality materials. The concept, for example, features metallic accents, an infotainment system and a wood trim.

In terms of power, the Japanese carmaker Nissan did not reveal any information, bet we expect to be powered by a new V6 engine. There is the possibility it will send the output to the wheels through a continuously variable transmission. Its fuel consumption will be reduced by 25% making it the most fuel-efficient seven-passenger car on the market, according to the Japanese specialists. More information will be revealed soon.
