Dubai, United Arab Emirates – May 20, 2017: Nissan has launched today the new 2018 Nissan Pathfinder in the Middle East during an event set against the dramatic backdrop of the majestic Al Hajar Mountains in Fujairah. The Nissan Pathfinder is reborn for the 2018 model year with more adventure capability, a freshened exterior look and enhanced safety and technology – pure Pathfinder taken to a higher level of performance and style.

The latest iteration of this popular, family-oriented four-wheel drive vehicle draws on Nissan's vast experience of building vehicles designed to operate in testing off-road conditions while remaining perfectly at home on the highway. As an SUV vehicle, the Pathfinder retains plenty of capability in off-road environments. 

“Pathfinder has a logical and hugely practical place within the Nissan model line-up in this region,” explained Fadi Ghosn, Chief Marketing Officer of Nissan Middle East. “For 2018, Pathfinder receives much more than a typical facelift. It now offers more power, improved driving dynamics and new available driver assistance features –more of what customers need for safe, comfortable every day and weekend family adventures.”

“Most people with a family need to commute to work, drop the kids off at school and generally use their vehicles on paved surfaces. But at weekends it's great to have the Pathfinder's capacity to explore further afield, getting to special places that an ordinary family car cannot reach, be that in a desert, beach, wadi or mountain environment.”

The refreshed Pathfinder benefits from changes both externally and internally.  The revised 3.5-litre V6 engine has almost 7% more horse power and almost 4% more torque thanks to its new engine. These include new combustion chamber design, pistons, intake manifold, electromagnetic Valve Timing Control and a new Direct Injection Gasoline system. 

The seven-seat vehicle offers enhanced driving dynamics such as more controlled ride and handling, less vibrations on turns and easier manoeuvring. This is due to many enhancements such as smaller strokes, less under-steer, improved roll balance and improved steering ratio.

The 2018 Pathfinder is offered in 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive configurations and a choice of three well-equipped grade levels: S, SV and SL).

Externally, Pathfinder now aligns more closely with Nissan's latest design language thanks to signature elements, including the new “V-Motion” grille and striking boomerang-shaped headlights with LED daytime running lights. Other new styling elements include a redesigned front bumper, fog lights, wing mirrors with integrated indicators and new 18-inch and 20-inch aluminium-alloy wheel designs. The rear taillight cluster and rear bumper have also been refreshed.  
 
In terms of practicality, a Motion-Activated liftgate comes as standard on SV and SL grade. On sweeping a foot under the tailgate, it opens automatically and stops at the desired point. 

Inside, the revamped Pathfinder offers stylish, comfortable seating for seven occupants who benefit from a variety of updated connectivity features. The latest Pathfinder adopts new-generation information technology with an Advanced Drive-Assist Display located in the centre of the instrument binnacle providing supplementary infotainment and driver assistance displays compared to the previous model.  
 
A standard 8.0-inch touch-screen monitor, situated in the middle of the instrument panel controls a wide variety of vehicle systems and settings including navigation and infotainment functions.

Options such as Intelligent Emergency Breaking, Intelligent Cruise Control, Blind Spot Warning (BSW), Forward Collision Warning and Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RCTA) are available on the SV and SL grades. The Intelligent Around View Monitor with Moving Object Detection is available as an option only on the SL grade.

The refreshed Pathfinder will be arriving to showrooms across the region in May. The 2-wheel drive is priced between USD32,450 and USD 44,240, while the 4-wheel drive between USD 34,360 and USD 46,090.
