The Nissan Pathfinder is a midsize three-row SUV that we’ve long praised for its spacious cabin and strong towing figures. Outside of those attributes, however, the previous-generation Pathfinder struggled to make an impact amid a competitive set of rivals that include the Honda Pilot and Kia Telluride. Aiming to boost interest, Nissan has redesigned the Pathfinder for the 2022 model year.
Compared to the 2020 Pathfinder (there’s no 2021 model), the new Pathfinder has more muscular and upright styling, a new nine-speed automatic transmission, retuned steering, additional interior storage and new technology features. We’re also pleased that Nissan revised the Pathfinder’s suspension tuning for 2022. The previous model’s ride quality, in particular, could be overly choppy.
Especially in the area of technology, the Pathfinder has grown up quite a bit. It’s quieter, more comfortable and better to drive than before. It’s worth checking out if you’re shopping for a family-friendly three-row SUV, but know that you can get more driving pizzazz from a Honda Pilot or a Kia Telluride or more interior space from a Chevrolet Traverse or a Volkswagen Atlas.
