Spy Shots—Nissan Pathfinder: New Unibody to Replace Body-on-Frame Version

NIssan Pathfinder

The shooters at Brenda Priddy & Co. recently delivered these photos of the Nissan Pathfinder for 2013. The team reports that the new Pathfinder will ride on a uni-body platform, replacing the current body-on-frame version that is slated for production for the '13 model year.

The Pathfinder is riding on the D platform, which is also shared with the Infiniti JX, Nissan Murano and Nissan Maxima. The new Pathfinder is front-wheel-drive, and an all-wheel-drive option will be made available, according to Priddy & Co. Carrying the codename P42K, the Priddy team also expects three rows of seats, engine offerings similar to those on the JX, and likely a new hybrid offering.
