A New Path Forward with the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder

Many car manufacturers try to introduce an off-road-capable vehicle, but few succeed. However, Nissan has made its Pathfinder SUV a staple of its model lineup since its introduction over 35 years ago. There is no destination too wild for the Pathfinder; yet it tackles city streets and long highways with ease. Over the past several years, the Pathfinder has seen dramatic changes in terms of modern styling and technology, but a complete redesign for the 2022 model year is bringing the Pathfinder into its own.

What's New for 2022

The Pathfinder is completely new for the 2022 model year, offering a rugged yet modern look inside and out. The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is expected to be for sale in Kanata and across Canada in late summer 2021.

Models and Pricing

The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is offered in five model configurations in Kanata and across Canada: S, SV, SL, SL Premium, and Platinum. Starting at $43,798, the entry-level S model features a NissanConnect multimedia and infotainment system operated by an 8.0-inch touchscreen and including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity. A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster, intelligent 4x4 system, and ProPILOT Assist suite of safety technologies also come standard on all models.


The Pathfinder's exterior is reminiscent of the old styling, but it is more streamlined now and features a bolder front end thanks to new headlights and taillights that make the car more imposing. The Pathfinder's exterior styling is both rugged yet modern, highlighting its off-road capability as well as the luxurious interior that awaits drivers.
The interior of the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder underwent a drastic change, taking it from dated to daring. This true luxury SUV now features semi-aniline leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, and a panoramic sunroof. The Pathfinder seats up to eight passengers in its three rows and offers plenty of room for cargo as well.


Every model of the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is built with a 3.5-litre V6 engine that is paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission to deliver to deliver 284 horsepower and 259 lb-ft of torque. All of the Canadian models come standard with an Intelligent 4x4 system that offers seven driving and terrain modes to match all weather and road conditions. The Pathfinder also offers towing capability up to 2,721kg.


Nissan includes many standard safety features on its vehicles, whether it is the subcompact Versa or the super-sized Armada. The 2022 Pathfinder is the same, featuring Nissan's Safety Shield 360 suite of driver-assist technologies. For an all-around safer driving experience, the Pathfinder includes intelligent emergency braking with pedestrian detection, rear intelligent emergency braking, rear cross traffic alert, blind spot warning, lane departure warning, and high beam assist.
In addition, Nissan's ProPILOT Assist makes driving safer than ever before. Standard on all Pathfinder models, it is a revolutionary autonomous driving technology which uses mapping technology to predict curves, interchanges, junctions, and more, adapting itself to the drive and keeping pace with the flow of traffic.
The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is incredibly modern, stylish, and capable--a great choice for drivers in Kanata that want a well-rounded, well-equipped vehicle.
