Write a Review
Nissan has launched the new 2018 Nissan Pathfinder in the Middle East. The Nissan Pathfinder has been revamped for the 2018 model year with a better adventure capability, a new exterior look and increased safety and technology.
In a major step up of its already highly capable adventure credentials, Pathfinder’s new 3.5-liter V6 engine features 271 horsepower and torque of 340 nm of torque at 4,800 rpm.
For a better wide-open throttle performance and improved fuel economy and emissions performance - A new Direct Injection Gasoline™ (DIG) system has been introduced that is more efficient than a non-direct-injection system.
All grades are furnished with Nissan’s third-generation Xtronic transmission (similar to that utilized in the sporty Nissan Maxima). The Xtronic transmission has a D-Step Logic Control, which simulates shifts, giving a more natural acceleration feeling.
Pathfinder being the only vehicle in its class with the selectable options of 2WD, Auto or 4WD Lock modes for its available intuitive ALL-MODE 4x4-i system has outdone itself this time.
A standard Hill Start Assist helps sustain control when starting and driving away on a steep incline (both 4WD and 2WD models), while standard Hill Descent Control (4WD only) helps by adjusting speed and brake pressure when traveling slowly down steep, rough terrain grades.
The exterior gives a great sense of adventure, character, and presence and continued fine-tuning of aero efficiency. Adding to the aerodynamic optimization efforts is a new “V-motion” grille design, which enhances cooling performance and negates the need for an active grille shutter.
The Motion-Activated liftgate that requires just a wave of the foot under the center of the liftgate activates the power opening function. It is standard on SV and SL grade. Also updated in the 2018 model is the design of the alloy wheels that are available as 18-inch in S grade and 20-inch in SV and SL grades.
Completing the exterior makeover is one new exterior color, which is Caspian Blue along with the available colors of Silver, Magnetic Black, Gun Metallic, Pearl White.
The interior enhancements in the Pathfinder for 2018 bring convenience and connectivity to the table. The cupholders have a new shape providing room to accommodate mug handles and an illuminated front storage bin. There are now two USB ports inside the console versus the previous single port. Voice recognition is now amplified with a new HD microphone.
Featuring additional infotainment and driver assistance displays is the Advanced Drive-Assist™ Display (ADAD), standard in all grades, placed in the center of the instrument display between the tachometer and speedometer.
The roomy and comfy interior includes a wide range of technical details including two rows of rich leather-appointed seating surfaces, climate controlled front seats in SL grade, power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Start, multiple user memory settings and an advanced Bose® Audio System with 12 speakers.
The notable features providing optimum convenience are Intelligent Around View® Monitor (AVM) with Moving Object Detection (MOD) and a Tri-Zone Automatic Climate Control, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System and iPod® integration. The rear displays are now 8-inch QHD (Quad High Definition) designs and include auto brightness control and USB and HDMI rear source inputs. The rear display can be controlled from the user-friendly display in the front.
Standard safety and security features for the measures of making your ride carefree the car comes with Nissan Advanced AirBag System (includes dual-stage front supplemental air bags with seat belt sensors and an occupant classification sensor), child safety rear door locks, Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) and Traction Control System (TCS).
