At the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder made its concept debut. However, at the time Nissan focused much its attention on the exterior redesign of the Pathfinder. Today, Nissan is showing us more of the interior along with some significant details on what we can expect when the new model goes on sale.
Check out our original post on the Nissan Pathfinder Concept.
“As Nissan has expanded its range of adventure-ready SUVs to include Armada, Xterra, Murano, Rogue and JUKE, Pathfinder maintains its very important position in the heart of the lineup and the market – as a right-size, 3-row/7-passenger SUV with the seating and cargo capacity that growing families need,” said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc. “As families spend more time in their SUVs everyday as well as on weekends, the next-gen Pathfinder is stepping up with enhanced comfort, innovative technology, increased fuel efficiency, and most importantly, more flexibility for the family.”
The unibody platform of the new Nissan Pathfinder offers more benefits including a flat floor for more interior volume.
Some of the things we can expect from the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder’s interior:
- A quiet, comfortable interior includes leather-appointed seating surfaces, heated and cooled front seats, heated 2nd row seats, heated steering wheel, power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, Nissan Intelligent Key with Push Button Start and multiple user memory settings, and an advanced Bose Audio System with 13 speakers.
- Expected to be among the roomiest 2nd rows in its class, it also features exceptional 3rd row access. Larger rear door openings, 5.5 inches of 2nd row seat travel, and forward folding seat allow for ease of entry and exit to the 3rd row.
- 60/40-split 2nd row features an innovative ‘child seat mode’ allowing forward movement and access to the 3rdrow with a child safety seat remaining securely in place.
- The 3rd row seat is a 50/50 split folding design, offering added cargo room.
