Nissan’s all-new 2022 Pathfinder will start at $33,410 when it goes on sale soon (plus a mandatory $1,150 destination fee). That’s a nearly $1,500 bump over the outgoing model, and it makes the base Pathfinder one of the more expensive 3-row SUVs on the market.
For comparison, Subaru and Honda ask more than $1,000 less for their least-expensive Ascent and Pilot models. Still, the latest Toyota Highlander costs more, with a starting price just over $35,000.
The Pathfinder is all new for 2022 and has received a ruggedized makeover. It is offered in a broad lineup of four trim levels — S, SV, SL, and Platinum — stretching from $33,410 to $48,090 for the range-topping version.
All but the base Pathfinder S come with the automaker’s ProPilot Assist driver-assistance tech, which allows for semi-autonomous driving as it keeps the SUV in its lane and away from other vehicles.
On all 2022 Pathfinders, front-wheel drive is standard and $1,900 buys optional all-wheel drive. A 3.5-liter V6 is standard fare, and it powers the wheels through a 9-speed automatic transmission.
Just two option packages are offered, one each for the mid-range SV and SL trim levels. Both packages include a panoramic moonroof, a trailer hitch, and second-row captain’s chairs. The SV adds a power liftgate, while the swankier SL includes a Bose audio system and 20-inch alloy wheels. Find a Nissan Pathfinder for sale
