I like the 25% more fuel economy, as for the rest........I'm gonna reserve my judgement until i see it in person.......so far, I'm not sold on it.

Did you notice the placement of the rear door handles.
Not your distinctive PathFinder anymore.

I think it looks like a nice vehicle...it just should be given it's own name because, IMO, it's not a true Pathfinder.

They couldn't find someone else to do the vehicle intro? The guy looks/sounds like a used car salesman.

This is exactly what we should expect from Nissan in a Pathfinder redesign. Look at all the newer SUV's it is competing with. The "dynamic more aerodynamic" look (seriously, pulled that from the Youtube clip) makes it fit in with all the others in the market.

That was the big reason why I bought an 11. I feel the 11/12's are the last of the true SUV's. I like the boxier look and rugged ride. Classic.

Looks like I may have bought my last Pathfinder when I got my 05 model. The new model looks like total crap. Nissan really lost their minds on the design of this one. Sad to see Sad

You can still buy a new one for 2012 or used between yours (05) and now (11). That will get you thorhough another 10 years of your life and then see what happens.

Hi, I have been lurking on the forum for a while doing my research trying to decide if I want to buy a Pathfinder to replace my aging Grand Cherokee.

After seeing the video of the 2013 I just want to go on record as stating that I WILL NOT BUY ONE!

What is the point, it will be the same thing as a Chevy Traverse or Ford Explorer and all the other useless crossover vehicles.

Why can't anyone build a real SUV. I require a fairly small, all weather, V8 powered vehicle that can go off road when needed and still provide comfortable ride for long days behind the wheel.

I use my vehicle for my work and drive 40 to 50 thousand miles per year. I can not imagine that a car based wagon with a little 6 cylinder mounted crossways with front wheel drive would hold up.

So sorry Nissan no new customer here.

Everybody enjoy your R51s while you still can.
