FIRST LOOK: 2017 Nissan Pathfinder world debut. Nissan today took over Dallas’ popular Klyde Warren Park to announce a major sponsorship agreement with the city – along with the debut of the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder, which goes on sale at Nissan dealerships nationwide this fall.
The changes for the new model year begin with its new 3.5-liter V6, which utilizes more than 56 percent new or new-to-Pathfinder engine parts and components – including combustion chamber design, pistons, intake manifold, e-VTC and new Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) system. Horsepower for the new V6 engine increases to 284 hp (from the previous 260 hp) and torque is now rated at 259 lb-ft (up from 240 lb-ft). Maximum towing capacity has increased by 1,000 pounds to a best-in-class 6,000 pounds (when properly equipped).
The Pathfinder’s refreshed exterior provides a stronger sense of adventure character and presence by adding Nissan signature design elements, such as the new “V-Motion” grille and boomerang-shaped headlights with LED daytime running lights. Other exterior enhancements include new front bumper, fog lights, outside rearview mirrors with integrated turn signals and new 18-inch and 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheel designs. In the rear, changes include new taillight and bumper designs.
Another significant addition for 2017 is the available Motion-Activated liftgate with liftgate position memory, which is standard on SL and Platinum grades. A simple wave of the foot under the center of the tailgate activates the power opening function.
Available advanced Driver Assistance technology includes new Forward Emergency Braking (FEB) and Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC). For 2017, Moving Object Detection has been added to the available Around View Monitor (AVM). Also offered are Blind Spot Warning (BSW) and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA).
