At Napoli Nissan, one of our favorite times of year is seeing the new Nissan models roll into our showroom, especially when one of those models have undergone a major redesign. A favorite among our Milford, CT area customers, the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder, has upped the adventure-ready credentials with aggressive new exterior styling, increased power and towing capability, and advanced driver assistance features. The exterior now includes a bold new front end with signature boomerang-shaped headlights with LED Daytime Running Lights and available LED headlights. Other updates include a new 3.5-liter V6 engine with a direct injection system that increases the horsepower to 284 and delivers a class-leading maximum towing capacity of 6,000 pounds when properly equipped. The direct injection system provides better wide-open throttle performance and emissions performance (versus a non-direct-injection system) by reducing engine knock, improving combustion stability and offering precise injection control. New advanced driver assistance technology includes Forward Emergency Braking, Intelligent Cruise Control, and Around View® Monitor with Moving Object Detection. What’s more, enhanced user friendliness features range from Motion-Activated liftgate to updated vehicle connected services.
“The Nissan Pathfinder has an amazing heritage as one of the modern pioneers in the SUV segment, with more than 30 years in the marketplace, yet we are always looking forward—as the Pathfinder name implies,” said Michael Bunce, vice president, Product Planning, Nissan North American, Inc. “For 2017, Pathfinder receives much more than your typical facelift. It now offers more power, towing capability, improved driving dynamics and newly available driver assistance features—more of what you need for safe, comfortable everyday and weekend family adventures.”
The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is offered in 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive configurations and a choice of four well-equipped grade levels: S, SV, SL, and Platinum. If you would like to know more or are looking for a Nissan in CT, please stop by our Nissan dealership. We hope to see you soon!
