Nissan has released a N-TREK version of its ageing but still capable, AWD Pathfinder. The Nissan Pathfinder has had a mixed history, changing from a robust 4WD to an urban based AWD over the years. It is however an underrated family wagon.
The seven-seat Pathfinder N-TREK Special Edition joins the very successful Navara N-TREK and the limited edition X-Trail N-TREK as a permanent addition to the SUV lineup. The N-TREK range has proved popular with buyers and is being rolled out across other SUVs as well.
Powered by the steadfast 202kW, 340Nm 3.5-litre V6 engine available across the Pathfinder’s family of four model grades.
The Nissan Pathfinder is equipped with a host of Nissan’s advanced Intelligent Mobility features as standard, including
- Intelligent Emergency Braking with Forward Collision Warning,
- Blind Spot Monitoring,
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert and
- Intelligent Cruise Control.
Earlier in 2019, Rear Door Alert, which notifies parents if children are left unattended in the vehicle was added to the Ti variant.
With its black styling accents, a unique 18-inch alloy wheel design and wider tyres, the Pathfinder N-TREK Special Edition will appeal to traditional 4WD-loving customers who seek a higher degree of individuality and expression.
N-TREK Pathfinder Features
Exterior feature upgrades include a Black V-motion front grille, with black finisher strip and silver lower bumper guard. At the rear there are black badges, black license plate trim and black lower bumper finisher.
Along the side of the vehicle there are black fender flares, black exterior door handles, black roof rails, and black door mirror caps.
The unique black and silver design of 18-inch alloy wheels are shod with wider 255mm tyres, an increase of 20mm.
The Pathfinder N-TREK Special Edition is available in four colours: Ivory Pearl, Diamond Black, Gun Metallic and Caspian Blue.
“The new Nissan Pathfinder N-TREK Special Edition is designed to appeal to active outdoor lifestyle families who appreciate the standout features included in the N-TREK specification,” says Stephen Lester, managing director of Nissan Australia.
“Pathfinder offers an abundance of interior space, a compelling suite of Intelligent Mobility features designed to keep occupants safe, and a highly dynamic powertrain package that makes it a top choice for growing families with an active lifestyle.
“As with the N-TREK Special Editions we have already launched across the Nissan SUV family, the Pathfinder N-TREK will quickly become sought-after in the Australian market.”
