Overview Information

An all-new Pathfinder debuts with independent rear suspension, and styling that echoes the larger Armada. The Pathfinder fills the mid-sized SUV slot in Nissan's lineup. It is longer, wider, and taller than the model it replaces. It now offers 3-row seating for seven passengers. The Pathfinder is powered by a 4.0L stroked version of Nissan's 3.5L V-6. Both 4x2 and 4x4 versions will be offered.

What Changed:

All-new Pathfinder based on a version of Nissans full-size truck platform. Pathfinder is longer, wider, and taller and offers 3 rows of seating for 7 passengers. Power is provided by a 4.0L V6. Both 4x2 and 4x4 versions will be offered.

Official Word:

"Each of our four Nissan SUVs has a specific role in the lineup. With the success of Murano as our true crossover SUV, we're able to utilize the strengths of the Pathfinder Armada platform in creating the 2005 Pathfinder a highly capable, mid-sized adventure vehicle for highly active families." -- Mark McNabb, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc.
