2022 Nissan Pathfinder for Sale in Warwick, RI
Trims, Powertrain, and Capabilities
Nissan offers the 2022 Pathfinder in S, SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels. Most can accommodate up to eight passengers, but the SV and SL are eligible for second-row captain’s chairs (which are standard in the Platinum) that reduce seating capacity to seven. All trims have a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 284 horsepower and 259 lb.-ft. of torque. This powerplant is linked to a brand-new nine-speed automatic transmission that has been engineered for smoother and swifter acceleration. Front-wheel drive is the default, but Nissan’s latest Intelligent 4WD system is optional. It comes with a 7-position Drive and Terrain Mode selector with settings for Standard, Sport, Eco, Snow, Sand, Mud/Rut, and Tow. The towing max is a best-in-class 6,000 pounds.
Amenities by Trim Level
The S gets automatic LED headlights, side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, rear privacy glass, Nissan Intelligent Key with push-button start, tri-zone automatic climate control, rear passenger air vents, two 12-volt power outlets, four USB ports (two USB-A and two USB-C), illuminated vanity mirrors, an overhead console sunglasses holder, 12 cup holders and four bottle holders, an EZ Flex one-touch second-row seating system, and a 60/40 split fold-flat reclining third-row bench seat. The cargo area has four tie-down hooks and an under-floor storage compartment. The SV also gets heated side mirrors, black roof rails, remote start with intelligent climate control, heated front seats with driver’s-side power adjustments, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.
The SL has LED fog lights, silver roof rails, a power liftgate, manual rear-window sunshades, an auto-dimming rearview mirror with HomeLink, a power-adjustable front passenger’s seat, first- and second-row leather seats, a heated steering wheel, and an additional USB-A port. The Platinum is outfitted with some considerable upgrades, such as a panoramic moonroof. Its exterior welcomes chrome exterior trim, a hands-free liftgate, rain-sensing wipers, and reverse gear tilt-down and power-folding side mirrors with position memory. Inside, the Platinum receives a power tilt-and-telescopic steering wheel, accent lighting, position memory settings (for the driver’s seat and steering wheel), second-row fold-down captain’s chairs with a removable center console, semi-aniline leather seats with quilted inserts, ventilated front seats, heated second-row outboard seats, a smooth leather-wrapped steering wheel, and stainless-steel kick plates. On top of all that, it also includes a handful of tech enhancements, like a 120-volt household power outlet, a digital dashboard with fully digital gauges, a 10.8-inch head-up display, and an extra USB-A port.
Advanced Safety Features
The all-new Pathfinder welcomes a host of improved safety aids, too. As part of the redesign, the SV now gets Nissan’s ProPILOT Assist adaptive cruise control system, while the more advanced ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link (a semi-autonomous driving system that was introduced in the redesigned 2021 Rogue) comes on the SL and Platinum. ProPILOT Assist with Navi-link not only has the capability to see the road ahead and track upcoming curves, junctions, and exits, but it’s also able to automatically slow the vehicle in anticipation.
The Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite of active driving aids is provided in every trim. In the S, it consists of intelligent forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, blind-spot warning, rear cross-traffic alert, rear parking sensors, reverse automatic braking, automatic high beams, hill start assist, trailer sway control, and intelligent brake hold. All trims except the base get intelligent lane intervention and intelligent blind-spot intervention, while the SL and Platinum also add Nissan’s Intelligent Around-View Monitor, front parking sensors, and traffic sign recognition.
Entertainment and Connectivity
The Pathfinder’s S trim gets an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system that’s equipped with voice recognition, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth hands-free phone and audio streaming, a six-speaker audio system, an auxiliary audio input jack, and SiriusXM satellite radio. The SV adds NissanConnect services and a Wi-Fi hotspot, while the SL moves up to a 9-inch touchscreen with door-to-door navigation, wireless Apple CarPlay, and SiriusXM with Travel Link. The Platinum gets the ultimate setup, highlighted by a 13-speaker Bose audio system that includes dual subwoofers.
Two packaged bundles are on offer for the ’22 Pathfinder: one for the SV trim and the other for the SL.
