Serving Chattanooga, TN

At Nissan of Chattanooga East, we are always proud to introduce the latest versions of our models to our valued customers. In 2022, the Pathfinder debuts its fifth generation with front-to-rear updates. The Pathfinder skipped over the 2021 model year, so comparing the 2020 Pathfinder to the 2022 Pathfinder will reveal the model’s many updates. After getting to know the Pathfinder in intricate detail, which model year will you select?

Performance

Regardless of the trim level you select for the 2020 or 2022 Pathfinder; your SUV will draw 284 horsepower from a 3.5-liter V6 powertrain. In the 2020 model year, the engine is linked to a continuously variable transmission with hill descent control. In 2022, this changes to a nine-speed auto transmission. The 2022 Pathfinder also has an upgraded design for the steering and suspension equipment. Both model years are offered with your choice of front-wheel or all-wheel drive.

Appearance

The Pathfinder has been beautifully redesigned throughout the exterior for 2022. Compared to 2020, the 2022 Pathfinder has a boxier profile with a squared-off nose, a more prominent grille, and reshaped headlights. Specifically, both model years have a V-motion grille design, but the 2022 version has a deeper and wider shaper. While the 2020 Pathfinder’s headlights have a tilted, diamond-like look, the 2022 Pathfinder’s headlights are segmented. The lower segment is a layered rectangle, and the top segment arches out of the rectangle. For 2022, the Pathfinder also has roof rails, lower-body molding, and mild definition through the fenders.

Features

As you continue your comparison of the 2020 Pathfinder to the 2022 version, you will find several shared traits. These include a touch display screen, a three-zone climate control system, a three-row cabin design, smart device integration, and a few assistive safety features. The base trim level for 2022 adds lane departure warning, forward collision mitigation, and a blind-spot monitor. Higher 2022 trim levels add an integrated navigation system, a surround-view camera, a larger display screen, leather material, a power liftgate, a sunroof, remote start, heated side mirrors, heated front seats, and lane-keep assist.
