2019 Nissan Pathfinder Arrives With Newly Standard Driver Assistance Systems

The Nissan Pathfinder is entering the 2019 model year with a host of driver assistance systems which are now standard on lower grade models.

Starting with the entry-level Pathfinder S, pricing begins at $31,230 which is a modest increase of $190. Changes are minor as the only updates include a new Mocha Almond Pearl paint job, a newly standard backup sensing system and two USB Type C ports.

Since the model largely carries over, it continues to feature halogen headlights, LED daytime running lights and 18-inch alloy wheels. The seven-seat interior has cloth seats, a tri-zone automatic climate control system and an infotainment system with an 8-inch display. Other highlights include a six-speaker audio system, cruise control and power windows and locks.

The Pathfinder SV starts at $34,270 and it comes equipped with newly standard driver assistance systems such as Intelligent Cruise Control, Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert. The model also has speed sensitive windshield wipers, an eight-way power driver’s seat and illuminated vanity mirrors. Other highlights include a HomeLink universal transceiver and a Nissan Intelligent Key with remote start.

The Pathfinder SL packs on the luxury features and it is priced from $37,920. However, the only new addition for 2019 is newly standard LED headlights.

Besides the headlights, the crossover has heated exterior mirrors and a power liftgate. Inside, the model comes equipped with leather upholstery, heated front seats and a four-way power front passenger seat. Other highlights include GPS navigation, additional metallic trim and an Intelligent Around View Monitor.

The range-topping Pathfinder Platinum starts at $42,570 and comes nicely equipped with 20-inch wheels, additional chrome trim and a “Dual Panorama moonroof.” The model also has heated / ventilated front seats, a 13-speaker Bose audio system and wood grain interior trim.

Regardless of which trim level is selected, all Pathfinders are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 284 hp (211 kW / 288 PS) and 259 lb-ft (350 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an Xtronic continuously variable transmission which can be paired to an optional all-wheel drive system for an additional $1,690.

The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder is currently on sale at dealerships across the United States.

    It seems like Nissan cannot find proper path for that model. It looks so dated.

    The mid central console is from my 2008 Infiniti G35. Good job, Nissan! No changes in a decade!

  • TheBelltower

    I can’t remember the last time I saw one of these in person. Or maybe I just don’t notice them. Not sure why anyone would consider this. Nissan must be offering them with a lot of cash on the hood.

  • Paul

    It still looks older than the hills. It needs an update badly.

  • Nihar

    Are they waiting for a redesign for that new infotainment from the 19 Altima?

  • KoolSon

    Looks like a Subaru Outback without the 4 cylinder option and without standard AWD and great ground clearance. Probably a lot pricer as well. Sounds like they are trying to make more appealing as sales have gone south.

    Can someone please explain to me why pretty much every “new” Nissan looks 10-15 years old?

    Are they hurting for cash or something? Need to penny pinch?

    I would NEVER buy this over a Pilot or a CX-9.

    The Pathfinder has the lowest ownership satisfaction out of the whole segment.
