It’s the rise of the SUV. A combination of function, style, and performance, the SUV has become an essential part of American life. While some SUVs struggle to live up to expectations, others surpass them, like the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder. With impressive cabin space and a respectable towing capacity, the Nissan Pathfinder is a well-rounded SUV fit for road and recreation.
Many of the same features that were so successful in previous years are present in the 2023 model, with one significant addition, the Rock Creek trim. A 3.5-liter V6 graces all trim levels, producing 284 horsepower, except for the Rock Creek trim, which sees 295 horsepower. Paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, the Pathfinder is ready for just about anything.
Experience adventure the way it should be experienced with seven available drive and terrain modes. Paired with the available four-wheel drive, trails and adverse weather will be no match. Plus, with the upgraded suspension and room enough for eight, you’ll be able to enjoy a smooth ride with the whole gang. Add in the extensive selection of driver assistance and safety features to feel secure on any path you find in the Pathfinder.
Luxury and comfort abound in the cabin of the Pathfinder, with available Tri-Zone Automatic Temperature Control, Driver’s Seat Memory, and second-row captain’s chairs. Indulge in the available leather-appointed seats and leather-wrapped steering wheel and for those seeking true comfort, check out the heated front and second-row seat features available on select trims.
Some SUVs are all about luxury, some are about capability, while others are about both, like the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder. A direct injection V6 3.5-liter engine is standard across the board, producing 284 horsepower and 259 lb-ft of torque. That power means some decent towing capabilities, with the S able to tow up to 3,500 pounds and the remaining trims able to tow up to an impressive 6,000 pounds. Tow anything from recreational toys with the S to boats and trailers with the upper trims.
Trims come standard with front-wheel drive, with the option to upgrade to the four-wheel drive option, which is ideal for off-roading and adverse terrain. The available intelligent 4x4 with seven drive and terrain modes adds to the Pathfinder’s remarkable capabilities. Go from Snow to Sand with the twist of a dial. The Pathfinder also has available Eco, Auto, Sport, Mud/Rut, and Tow modes, each designed to enhance your driving experience.
Tow mode creates a safer environment for towing with Downhill Speed Control and Trailer Sway Control. Downhill Speed Control regulates your speed with the added weight of your vehicle and whatever you are towing. Trailer Sway Control helps battle uneven roads and bad weather by keeping your vehicle straighter and within your lane.
New to the lineup, the Rock Creek trim is the ultimate in SUV ruggedness. While still toting the V6 3.5-liter engine, the Rock Creek trim produces a bit more power than the other trims, at 295 horsepower and 270 lb–ft of torque. Four-wheel drive is standard on the Rock Creek trim, with 6,000 pounds of towing capability. A nine-speed automatic transmission means quick response, and with manual mode, you have the option to take over control and express your inner child.
Equipped with a black tubular roof rack, there is extra room beyond the interior cargo space. Plus, with special off-road tuned suspension for better adaptability over rough terrain and a 5/8-inch lift which increases the ground clearance for climbing over tough obstacles. The added Intelligent Around View Monitor with Off-Road Mode helps to identify potential hazards with multiple camera angles designed to give you a complete view of your surroundings.
The 2023 Nissan Pathfinder is a technology-rich SUV filled with safety and driver assistance features designed with you in mind. Every trim comes standard with Safety Shield 360, a suite of six safety features. Automatic Emergency Braking with Pedestrian Detection monitors your speed and the distance between you and the vehicle in front of you to avoid possible collisions. It can also detect pedestrians and act, if need be, by putting on the brakes.
Rear Cross Traffic Alert and Rear Automatic Braking are included in the suite to detect objects in your rear and engage the brakes to avoid a rear collision. Blind Spot Warning does something similar by detecting vehicles in your blind spot. Lane Departure Warning will monitor your position in a lane, and if it senses you are drifting, it will initiate a buzz within the steering wheel to alert you. The final feature within the suite is High Beam Assist, a genius invention that can detect oncoming traffic and shut off the high beams until the vehicle passes.
The SV, SL, Platinum, and Rock Creek trims are equipped with ProPILOT Assist, which, when engaged, can adjust your vehicle to stay with the flow of traffic and in your lane. The SL and Platinum trims also come standard with Navi-link in association with the ProPILOT Assist. Using information from mapping and reading street signs, Navi-link can see what is ahead and adjust the vehicle for a smoother ride.
Hill start assist, which comes standard on all trims, prevents the vehicle from rolling backward when on a steep hill. For the four-wheel drive vehicles, the addition of Hill Descent Control helps control the vehicle’s speed when on a steep decline. Another standard across the board is the Automatic Brake Hold, making stop-and-go traffic less of a pain by holding the brake for you after you have released the pedal. Compressing the accelerator releases the automatic hold.
An expansive and comfortable interior awaits you when you step into the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder. Fit up to eight people in the Pathfinder or swap out the second row for captain’s chairs for extra comfy seating for seven. A removable center console makes getting in and out of the second and third rows a breeze. Easy folding second and third-row seats expand the cargo space to 80.5 cubic feet, providing plenty of space for everything you could need.
Tri-Zone Temperature Control comes standard on all trim levels, guaranteeing a pleasant ride for everyone. An assortment of cupholders, cubbies, and storage solutions are strategically placed throughout the cabin. USB ports also come standard with each trim, making charging, or connecting your devices easy. The Platinum trim has an upgraded sound system and wireless charging. The SL also offers wireless charging. Plus, with each trim packed with standard features and capabilities like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto capabilities, the Pathfinder will feel like your home away from home.
The top trims come equipped with a power driver seat and lumbar support, while the S trim is equipped with a manual seat and lumbar. The Platinum and Rock Creek trims are designed for extra ease with a memory system that can be set to adjust your seat, mirrors, and steering wheel to your ideal settings. Heated front seats, steering wheel, and second-row seats are available on several trims, perfect for cold mornings. There is even a climate control seat feature, which offers a cooling function for the front seats—a perfect answer to those hot summer days.
The Pathfinder is all about making sure you get everything you want, which is why there is an available moonroof with power shade. Imagine taking your Pathfinder for a weekend camping trip and staring up at the stars through your panoramic moonroof. With a motion-activated liftgate, loading and unloading your SUV has never been easier.
The new Pathfinder is loaded with other high-quality features, including leather-appointed seats and an assortment of available infotainment display screens. If you go big with the Rock Creek trim, be treated to specialized badging and design features unique to the Rock Creek. Each trim is designed with the driver and passenger in mind.
