2023 Nissan Pathfinder has a spacious cabin and can easily seat eight people like a breeze. The family SUV is ready to serve and transport you to your destination. The car is quiet and rides smoothly that will be clapped on both long road trips and daily commutes. Its 6000 pounds of towing capability compete with rivals like the Hyundai Palisade, the Kia Telluride, and the Toyota Highlander.
A new rugged Rock Creek model has been added to the Pathfinder lineup for 2023. This sports a lifted suspension, 18-inch all-terrain tires, a redesigned front grille, lower bumper, and standard AWD. The V6 now boasts a power boost in the Rock Creek model to 295 hp. The Rock Creek’s interior is different from the regular Pathfinder. It has special fabric and vinyl upholstery, orange stitching, and Rock Creek badges. The Pathfinder features a modern and trucklike interior design and well-placed controls. The three rows of seating can easily accommodate up to eight riders. Also, there is an option to swap the standard second-row bench for captain’s chairs.
The upper trim levels are completely decked out with luxuries such as semi-aniline leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a panoramic sunroof. An 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen with the latest version of the NissanConnect software interface is standard, and a larger 9.0-inch display is standard on the SL and Platinum models. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto can be synced wirelessly on upper trims. A 12.3-inch digital gauge display, onboard Wi-Fi hot spot, wireless smartphone charging pad, SiriusXM satellite radio, a head-up display, and an in-dash navigation system are all optional features.
