2022 Nissan Pathfinder Adds New Features and Ditches the CVT

  • The new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is redesigned with a new look inside and out.
  • It has the same 3.5-liter V-6 as before but a new nine-speed automatic transmission.
  • The 2022 Pathfinder will go on sale this summer, likely starting around $33,000.

    Although nostalgia for old-school, body-on-frame SUVs is running high these days, Nissan’s new 2022 Pathfinder is staying in the family-crossover milieu. Like its predecessor, this new version of the three-row SUV prioritizes cupholders over suspension travel, although it does looks a bit more rugged—and far more modern—than before. And if you’re keen on nostalgia, know that Nissan has incorporated at least one subtle design cue from the original: the three slats at the top of the grille that hark back to the first-generation, truck-based Pathfinder.

      After languishing in the marketplace for the better part of two decades, the Nissan Frontier compact pickup finally receives an overhaul for the 2022 model year. Although the third-generation truck is not entirely fresh—it still rides on a frame that dates back to the outgoing model’s 2005 debut—the new Frontier enters the modern age with all-new bodywork, a significantly updated interior, and a greater helping of technology.

      Nissan is still fuzzy on a number of details, including pricing, option packaging, and some final measurements. But we do know that the new Frontier

      • It promises up to 300 miles of range and a starting price of $40,000.
      • Nissan says it will go on sale in the U.S. in late 2021.

The Ariya also claims up to 300 miles of driving range on a single charge, and Nissan says it will start at around $40,000 when it goes on sale in the U.S. late next year.
