2012 Nissan Pathfinder
Style and space to match
Connect with nature in complete comfort in the roomy, well-tailored interior of the Pathfinder. With three rows and up to 64 seating configurations, it’ll take you and your six fellow adventurers to new heights.
Fold it flat. Load it up
Fold the third-row flat and you’ve got room for 5 and an expansive 49.2 cubic feet of cargo space with a flat floor.
Go the distance
Pathfinder’s innovative seating design means every seat folds forward individually, leaving plenty of space for both passengers and longer items on your next adventure. Use the trick fold-down passenger’s seat, and you’ve got the versatility to carry four passengers and an 8-foot long item at the same time.
Sometimes, it’s too hard to decide what to leave behind. And with over 79 cubic feet of room, you’ll never have to.
Keep items at hand
Pathfinder has the solutions to your storage problems. A side pocket conveniently stores everything near at hand, a dual-level glove compartment holds a surprising amount, and side pocket nets help keep your gear in place even on the roughest roads.
Convenience on command
Everything about Pathfinder is designed to make your life easy. Never waste time digging out your keys again, take calls with both hands on the wheel, and count on the Driver’s Memory System to have your preset driving position ready at the touch of a button.
Comfort around every turn
Heated front seats and steering wheel keep the chill away. Dual Zone Automatic Temperature Control (ATC) provides personal attention. And rear passenger A/C keeps the whole crew happy.
Leave your notion of keys in the past
Pathfinder serves up a taste of the future with available Nissan Intelligent Key®. Approach the vehicle and it recognizes your key’s unique signal and allows you to unlock the door with the tap of a button on the door handle. Once inside, start your Pathfinder and drive away without ever touching your keys.
Put it away. Keep it away
With the available Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System and your Bluetooth®- enabled phone, you can make and receive calls with a touch of the button on the steering wheel. The system will even mute the audio system when you answer a call and return it to its original setting when you hang up.
Plug it in. Turn it up
Plug in your iPod® with the auxiliary audio input jack. Load 6 MP3/WMA CDs in the available in-dash 6-CD changer and play over 1,000 songs, or bring your CompactFlash® card reader and enjoy up to 500. Top it all off with the almost limitless music selection of XM® Satellite Radio and you’ve got a winning combination.
Take Navigation to the next level
Just ask, and the available voice-recognition navigation system will show you the way, while real-time color-coded advisories from XM NavTraffic® help you avoid bottlenecks, 3-D Birdview™ makes navigating the urban jungle a breeze with a 3-D footprint of major buildings. And with over 5 million key points of interest at your fingerprints, you’ll feel like a local just about anywhere.
Keep the crew entertained
Flip down the 7” screen and take in a movie or plug in a video game player on the available Nissan DVD Entertainment System. Even play the day’s highlights on your camcorder through the auxiliary inputs.
A better way to back up
The RearView Monitor adds an extra element of confidence when navigating those tight parking spots. It automatically operates when the transmission is in reverse, so you can be more easily aware of what’s behind you.
Shift between 2WD and 4WD at the switch of a dial, even at speeds approaching 60 mph. For severe conditions that demand lots of control at very low speeds, shift it into 4LO and crawl over just about anything.
The system constantly monitors conditions to provide optimal traction on varying terrain. Switch to “Auto” mode and it automatically senses any loss of grip and shifts between 2WD and 4WD as needed.
A specialist on tough terrain
Innovative technologies like Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS) make easy work out of the roughest trails. A full-length boxed frame increases torsional stiffness for enhanced performance whether your adventure is on the road or off. And to make the frame stronger and lighter, it is made from high-tensile-strength steel. Independent suspensions in both the front and rear smooth the roughest roads – even for 3rd-row passengers.
Surrounded by safety
Six standard air bags along with an Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) are among the more than 50 standard safety features you’ll find on every Pathfinder. It’s all part of the Nissan Safety Shield, our comprehensive approach to help inspire confidence every time you get behind the wheel.
Four Standard braking technologies
Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) helps you stay on your steered path by reducing engine power and/or applying appropriate brake pressure to specific wheels. Active Brake Limited Slip (ABLS) applies braking pressure to slipping wheels and redirects power to wheel(s) with traction. Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) rapidly pumps the brakes to help prevent your wheels from locking. Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD) detects additional weight and sends added brake force to the rear wheels.
Brake Override Technology
A vital component of the Nissan Safety Shield, Brake Override Technology has been standard on every Nissan vehicle since 2005.
