2017 Nissan Pathfinder

It doesn’t look all that much different, but Nissan’s 3-row midsize SUV receives some notable changes for 2017. By the way, that’s not California’s famous coastal haze in the background; it’s forest-fire smoke.

Scion iMIn a previous post based on a July reveal of the freshened 2017 Nissan Pathfinder, we covered what’s new for the model year, along with the various trim levels and equipment offered. In a nutshell, Nissan’s 7-passenger midsize SUV has been significantly updated with revised styling, a more powerful engine, and several new features. This report covers a drive opportunity afforded us in beautiful — though at the time, smokey (due to nearby forest fires) — Monterey, California.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder

Visual refinements to Nissan’s Pathfinder for 2017 are subtle, but other changes are not, as they include a number of safety, convenience, and infotainment additions.

Nissan’s 7-passenger midsize SUV celebrates its 30th anniversary for 2017 with a “mid-cycle” update that includes a more powerful engine, higher towing capacity, a freshened appearance, and a host of newly available features.

Long Term Pathfinder

Editor Dave Hall used Consumer Guide’s long-term 2013 Nissan Pathfinder to move from one apartment to another.

Normally, the staffers here at Consumer Guide Automotive switch cars twice a week. A few days in a car is enough for an editor to observe all of the car’s behaviors, use all of its features, and spend an adequate amount of time driving it to make a good objective report. Most cars stay with us for about two weeks, meaning that four editors have the chance to thoroughly drive a vehicle, compare opinions, and come up with a verdict, which becomes the review we post on our website.

The Nissan Pathfinder’s 2013 redesign included the “big switch”—going from body-on-frame truck-type construction to a unibody platform. For more on this vehicle, including a drive report, pricing, and photos, check out Consumer Guide’s detailed review of the 2013 Pathfinder as well as our long-term road test. Meanwhile, here are three “yays” and “nays” based on a month’s worth of driving impressions.

Cool Color: Nissan Midnight Pine

2020 Nissan Pathfinder in Midnight Pine Metallic

I’m kind of a sucker for car colors that demonstrate some level of translucence. I also really like dark greens. So you can see how Nissan’s new Midnight Pine Metallic would appeal to me.

Albums for a Night Drive, Road Trip: Best Albums for a Night Drive

The Consumer Guide staff picks their favorite music for long nighttime drives.

The Florida spring-break road trip is cliché these days, but it was the thing to do when my college friends and I hit the interstate back in 1984. The trip from Chicago to Fort Lauderdale is roughly 1400 miles, and our goal, alternating drivers, was to cover that distance in under 24 hours. As I recall, we arrived at our destination in about 27 hours, but made the return trip in under 24.
