2020 Nissan Pathfinder – What Can We Expect?

Nissan has announced the production of new models of their SUV Pathfinder. This model should bring swing to the SUV market. Big changes of interior and exterior are announced, so we expect a serious vehicle that will be at the top of its class.

Also, the hybrid drive will be present. It is expected that there will be enough space for even seven adults. Although the grand presentation for 2019 is announced, the complete redesign of this model will be visible on model for 2020, where more accessories are expected.

Future Nissan Pathfinder Redesign

Nissan Pathfinder had the last redesign in 2017, but as SUVs are more popular in recent years, more redesigns are needed. As we said, the 2017 Pathfinder did not have so many changes, there was a new engine and changes to the front and rear of the vehicle. It is now logical that significant changes will occur.

2020 Pathfinder Interior

As we have already said, the new Pathfinder will have room for as many as seven adults and seats in three rows. It means it will be really comfortable, especially when driving longer. Further the additional comfort, the car will also receive a new control panel with changes on the gauges and steering wheel.

NissanConnect Infotainment New Generation

Along with the new Pathfinder comes the new generation of NissanConnect system. This system is known as one of the best in class. Therefore, we can expect many very interesting extras in the redesigned SUV.


We already mentioned that this car will have a lot of space in the interior. Therefore, it is logical that dimensions and weight will be increased. In addition to larger space, an increase in the trunk is also expected. All these extra inches will not significantly affect driving, although it may seem that there will be problems.

2020 Nissan Pathfinder Colors and Midnight Edition

When it comes to colors of the new Nissan Pathfinder, customers will have a great choice, and it will be amazing. On the other hand, the Nissan Pathfinder Midnight Edition will have special colors, and there will probably be options with camouflage.

2020 Nissan Pathfinder Specs

As well as the previous edition, the redesigned Pathfinder will use the 3.5-liter V6 engine. For the US market, this is the only choice. In addition, the new crossover will have 290 horsepower and will feature a four-wheel drive, which is expected.


As we have already mentioned, a hybrid drive will be present, which is a major change in that segment of Nissan vehicles. For example, in Australia, the turbocharged four-pot engine continues to be used on the car, so this is a significant change for Nissan.

2020 Nissan Pathfinder Gas Mileage

Nissan, in the present model has 20/27 miles per gallon, which should be a little bit less in the new redesigned Pathfinder. There is no need to expect a big difference, primarily because of the increase in the interior space and additional weight that will be caused. Fuel consumption is one of the reasons why Nissan introduces a hybrid drivetrain. In that case, we can expect 30 miles per gallon, which is truly economical. Also, in this way, Pathfinder should be ahead of the competitive Toyota Highlander hybrid.

Towing Capacity

As Pathfinder’s previous model had a towing capacity of 6,000 pounds, it would be difficult for Nissan to keep these values. It is expected that the capacity will be significantly reduced, primarily due to the usage of a hybrid engine that is not so powerful.

2020 Nissan Pathfinder Release Date

Nissan is expected to introduce the new Pathfinder to either the next Detroit Auto Show or in April 2019 in New York. Anyway, it will not be available to customers before the end of 2019.
