The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder starts at $29,510

The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder was officially announced to be priced at $29,510 for starters, excluding the $885 destination and handling fee.

The fourth generation Pathfinder has been with us since 2012 as a 2013 model and so far, only minor changes have been implemented. For the 2015 model year, the Pathfinder gets standard blind sport warning systems for the SL and Platinum trims, complete with cross traffic alert. The Xtronic CVT transmission was also reworked with a new D-Step Shift logic…whatever that is.

Otherwise, the Pathfinder continues to remain mostly unchanged. Should you opt for every bell and whistle on the Pathfinder, you’d be left with a Platinum 4WD model with an invoice of around $43,100. Pricing for the hybrid model should be announced later on.

Check out the press release after the jump.
