New Nissan Pathfinder Debuts in Dallas

After joining forces with the city of Dallas in a new sponsorship agreement, Nissan took over Klyde Warren Park in the city in order to make a major announcement — the reveal of the new Nissan Pathfinder for 2017. Expected to go on sale in the States sometime this fall, the Pathfinder was unveiled in a dramatic event featuring a pop-up urban maze. Nissan called the event “#FindYourNewPath.”

Nissan is now a Premier Sponsor of Klyde Warren Park, as well as a Presenting Sponsor of park events, and a sponsor of the park’s free Wi-Fi service. Nissan will also be considered the park’s official vehicle brand.

Jose Munoz, executive vice president of Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. and chairman of Nissan North America, Inc., commented, “Nissan has had a 35-year presence in Texas with a longstanding commitment to supporting activities at the local community level, whether school activities or Habitat for Humanity housing builds.”

The new Nissan Pathfinder offers a refreshed exterior, a new 3.5-liter V6 engine, and other features including an available motion-activated power liftgate. The new Advanced Drive Assist Display gives drivers access to new high-tech safety features.

New Nissan Pathfinder Named to KBB.com’s Best Family Cars List for 2015

The Nissan Pathfinder is now a repeat winner of a Best Family Car award from KBB.com. After a redesign, the next-generation Pathfinder has been blazing a trail of excellence ever since. The mid-size SUV has landed back-to-back acknowledgements on the Best Family Cars list thanks to its improvements in comfort, roominess, safety technology, and rear entertainment technology.

Those improvements—not to mention best-in-class ratings in towing capacity, passenger volume, and fuel efficiency—made the Pathfinder one of only two mid-size SUVs to make the list. The list is compiled by a panel of expert editors as well as normal families. The cars go through rigorous testing to determine which ones should be included on the list—and the Pathfinder passed all the tests with flying colors.
