I-Spy: Nissan's updated Pathfinder revealed

The new Pathfinder is expected to have three rows of seats, like the Infiniti JX.

For the year 2013 the Pathfinder will be sharing its platform with an Infiniti again but this will be the first time it will have front-wheel drive, though we imagine all-wheel drive will be an option as well. The new Pathfinder is expected to have three rows of seats, like the JX. Also, it is expected to have the JX's powertrain. This means it will be able to put out 265hp, not to mention the fact it will also have the "home-grown hybrid setup" which comprises an electric motor and supercharged 2.5L four-cylinder and a CVT. When looking at the picture do not let the grille "struts" trick you. They are only there to cover up the honeycomb grille. When looking at the tail lights, they appear to be a decoy to hide whatever Nissan has up its sleeve. We also expect to find some more styling tricks under the camouflage, in addition to the massive rear spoiler. This new Pathfinder is expected to be released next year.
