5 reasons to buy the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder

1. Spacious and comfortable cabin

The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder boasts three rows of standard seating for a capacity of eight passengers on most trims. Opt for a trim with second-row captain's chairs instead of the standard bench seat, however, and seating capacity is reduced to seven. Regardless, the 2022 Pathfinder offers a surprisingly spacious cabin with plenty of headroom and legroom for passengers. Even adults will be pleased with the amount of space available in the third row.

2. Standard driver-assistance features

Every 2022 Pathfinder comes with a suite of driver-assistance features for some added confidence behind the wheel. Even on the base trim, for example, you'll find blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, forward-collision mitigation, automatic rear braking, and a lane-departure warning system. Meanwhile, stepping up to the range-topping Platinum trim yields a convenient surround-view camera system for easier parking.

3. Plenty of trims and packages

The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is offered in four trims: S, SV, SL and Platinum. Some standard equipment on every trim includes tri-zone automatic climate control, smartphone integration, and an eight-inch touchscreen display. On the Platinum trim, you can get Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist, a system that helps you maintain a safe distance between other vehicles, including a stop-and-hold function for traffic.

4. Capable V6 power

After a brief hiatus (there was no 2021 model), the Pathfinder was completely redesigned for the 2022 model year. This redesign features an all-new powertrain in the form of a 3.5L V6 engine at an impressive 284 hp. This engine is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission, delivering plenty of punch underneath the hood. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all trims can be equipped with all-wheel drive.

5. Competitive fuel economy

For a vehicle of its size, the 2022 Pathfinder doesn't skimp on fuel economy. The 2022 Pathfinder base trim with a 3.5L V6 engine, nine-speed automatic transmission, and front-wheel drive gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg combined (21 mpg city and 26 mpg highway).
