Meet The 2023 Nissan Pathfinder: Specs, A New Trim, & More

2023 nissan pathfinder release

Nissan Pathfinder Inventory

The 2023 Nissan Pathfinder is a family-hauling powerhouse that can tow, go off-road, and keep all of your passengers comfortable the entire time. This beast of a vehicle is able to seat up to eight people and has a powerful engine with a hearty growl. This vehicle is fresh off the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder redesign, so it retains many — but not all — of the characteristics of the 2022 model.

The new model year does bring with it new additions to the Nissan Pathfinder lineup. The vehicle now has a new trim, the Rock Creek edition. It boasts a variety of upgrades that we will discuss later in this article. We're also going to take a look at the vehicle's specs, interior, the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder release date, and more.

2023 Nissan Pathfinder: Specs

While there are almost half a dozen trims available for the sleek new 2023 Nissan Pathfinder, all of them use (more or less) the same engine. The 3.5-liter V-6 makes a throaty roar when you start it up, and its specs match the lovely sound: the Nissan Pathfinder V-6 makes 284 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque. The Rock Creek model, however, uses different tuning to get 295 horsepower out of the engine.

The vehicle comes standard with front-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available. The nine-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly, making for a pleasant driving experience. The car's ability to glide over the road belies its power, however. The 2023 Nissan Pathfinder can leap from 0 to 60 in less than seven seconds, beating many rivals in its class.

This powerful vehicle supplements its spacious interior with a great towing capacity. With a maximum towing load of 6,000 pounds,1 the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder can help you bring the family boat or pop-up trailer along for a weekend getaway. This vehicle can do it all.

2023 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition

The most significant change in the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder lineup is the addition of the Rock Creek trim. The equipment on this vehicle is clearly designed to improve its off-roading chops, making this an attractive choice for bold and adventurous folks. It's the penultimate trim, second only to the top-tier Nissan Pathfinder Platinum.

The Rock Creek trim includes a wide variety of great features and creature comforts. It has a lifted suspension, custom 18-inch wheels, specialized bumpers in the front and back, and all-wheel drive as a standard inclusion. The interior of a 2023 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek vehicle has unique vinyl and cloth upholstery with orange stitching and Rock Creek badges throughout the cabin. This trim boasts style and adventure in one package.

We're still waiting on an exact Rock Creek price, but we'll update you when pricing information is made available. The other 2023 Nissan Pathfinder trims are the entry-level S, the SV, the mid-tier SL, and the top-level Platinum trim. The SL trim, for example, comes standard with a larger touch screen, a 360-degree safety camera, and wireless cell phone connectivity.

Each trim choice offers luxuries and comfort, in addition to compelling performance potential and great value for your money. If you have any questions about the different versions of the new Nissan Pathfinder, be sure to give us a call.

2023 Nissan Pathfinder Interior

The interior of the new Nissan Pathfinder is just as impressive as the specs and exterior of the car. It's designed to carry the entire family and their gear comfortably. The vehicle comes with two bench seats in the second and third rows, but you can swap the second-row bench for a pair of captain's chairs. This reduces the seating capacity to seven, but it allows everyone to climb into the third row more easily. You can customize the vehicle to your specific needs.

The 2023 Nissan Pathfinder comes standard with a touch screen that is eight inches on most models but nine inches on the SL and Platinum versions of the vehicle. Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® will allow you to easily control your music choices while the six-speaker sound system envelops your family in it. Folks looking for a more refined acoustic experience can opt for a 13-speaker Bose® setup instead.

Upper-level trims of the car enjoy luxuries include semi-aniline leather upholstery, a panoramic sunroof that bathes the cabin in real light, heated and ventilated seats in the front row, a wireless device charging pad, and more. These features will help make even the longest drives comfortable for drivers and passengers alike.

Some of you may be reading this and thinking that the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder sounds great but that it might be on the large side for your needs. You can check out the redesigned 2023 Nissan Altima if you're looking for a sleek and modern sedan or the 2023 Nissan Frontier release if you need a powerful and dynamic truck. There is a vehicle in the Nissan lineup for everyone.

2023 Nissan Pathfinder Release Date

We do not yet have an exact release date slated for the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder, but industry experts expect the vehicle to be available to the public in the late summer or fall of 2022, which is approaching quickly as of this writing. We're excited to get behind the wheel of this muscular three-row SUV and hope that you are too.

The 2023 Nissan Pathfinder price range is also still unannounced, but we don't expect it to stray too far from the 2022 costs for the vehicle. What we do know is that this car offers excellent value for your hard-earned money. It's large enough to comfortably seat the whole family while also packing impressive performance chops on and off the road.

Some industry watchers expected Nissan to introduce a 2023 Nissan Pathfinder hybrid, but it does not seem that this was in the cards for this model year. However, the 2024 version of the car will be available soon enough and could very well offer a mild- or plug-in hybrid powertrain; only time will tell.

Our finance team will work hard to try and provide you with the low-rate financing that you deserve, while our sales folks will always answer your questions clearly and transparently.

When will the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder be released?

Nissan has yet to tell us exactly when to expect the new Nissan Pathfinder. Experts in the automotive industry, however, forecast that the vehicle will be available towards the end of summer 2022. That's just a month or two away as of this writing, and we're thrilled by that. The Nissan Pathfinder is rugged enough to venture off the beaten path for a family camping trip but luxurious enough to take you down hundreds of miles of highway in living-room-style comfort.

How much will the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek cost?

The exact pricing of the new Nissan Pathfinder lineup is not yet public. Since the car recieved a redesign for the 2022 model year, we do not expect the 2023 prices to differ significantly from those of last year, however. Every version of the Nissan Pathfinder offers fantastic value for your money as this sleek car blends performance, style, and comfort together in one elegant package.

Will there be a Nissan Pathfinder hybrid in 2023?

Nissan has not announced any plans for a 2023 Nissan Pathfinder hybrid. While this is perhaps somewhat disappointing, hope is not lost. Every automaker is working on hybrid and electric vehicles, including Nissan. It's fair to say that we can expect to see a hybrid or even all-electric version of some, if not all, of the cars in the Nissan lineup in the next few years.
