    I didn’t think it was possible for Nissan to build anything even more bland than everything else they already have.

    Funny how that color makes it look like a render and not the real thing.

  • HaltestelleLuitpolthafen

    Zero reason to buy this outdated uncompetitive junk over a Pilot, CX-9, Telluride, or the Palisade.

    Nissan and their infatuation with CVTs is awful.

    • William rowe

      only reason I would buy it would be if there was like say a 12k rebate lol, short of that, I can not see any real reason one would buy this over all the ones you listed not to mention bigger suv’s like those from ford and GM..

  • Leconte Dave

    Should be 4WD Standard…

  • William rowe

    If all family crossovers were represented by moms in the school pick-up line, Pathfinder would be the dumpiest and trashiest of them all.

  • Jason Miller

    I like that color.

  • TB Creative

    What an uninspiring DUD! It’s a real shame what the once-great Pathfinder has become. This fugly thing already looks dated! Is Nissan trying to fail?

  • thejohnnycanuck

    So when are they finally going to offer it with mall wheel drive?

    • no25

      I don’t think many people drive in malls anymore. So, I don’t think mall wheel drive will ever be available.

  • botornot387

    long in tooth doesn’t begin to describe this little piggy

  • jason wu

    give me 10k off MSRP and I may consider getting one.
