What to expect from the upcoming 2018 Nissan Pathfinder? Well, the ride has gone through quite an impressive development,, from a simple family ride with the SUV form to a vehicle that can accommodate people and cargo. And the last update happened in 2012 where the redesigned project had resulted in a pretty well sales number. But since the company is going to celebrate the 30th anniversary, they are planning something different. And as a part of the plan, they are going to change the Pathfinder – inside and outside.
Nissan alone hasn’t said anything official about their next plan for the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder but everything is based on the rumors and predictions of the auto experts and enthusiasts – so don’t get your hopes high for the real current news, ok?
The new Pathfinder will be using the same platform used by the current model, which has also been used for the bigger Maxima sedan. But the flaw to the current platform is the rather weak suspension system although the platform alone is pretty rigid. That’s why Nissan will be using a stiffer shock on the back and also the front with new springs, affecting the handle and comfort of the ride. It will improve the absorbing quality of the SUV. And with the new steering rack, the Pathfinder is expected to have faster, better, and also more responsive performance.
Price and Release Date
Rumor has it that the new 2018 Nissan Pathfinder should be ready at around September 2017 but then again, we should wait for the further official release and update. For the price tag, it is predicted that the base price will be around $30,000 to $31,000 while the highest trim may be likely sold at around $52,000.
Although the new model will retain the same design and look, the front end will be different. The V motion design will improve and somehow more subtle with honeycomb mesh grille. When it is paired with the new V-shaped bumper and smaller headlights, you can expect a sportier look from this SUV. And the design affects the aerodynamic too, so you can expect a better outcome from driving this vehicle.
On the interior, you can expect the digital technologies with better center console. For the additional option, you can have the automatic emergency brake, forward collision warning technology, adaptive cruise control, and such thing alike. 2018 Nissan Pathfinder may not the most beautiful ride in the market but you can expect improved features and performance from it.
