Model Preview

The Nissan Pathfinder will be skipping the 2021 model year as the 2022 Pathfinder will be a complete redesign. A Nissan spokesperson stated, "To best position Nissan to deliver on the highly-anticipated all-new 2022 Pathfinder, production of the current 2020 Pathfinder continued through the end of 2020. There will not be a model year 2021 Pathfinder."

Skipping model years is typically rare but it's been happening more frequently in the past year. Most have been due to production changes due to COVID-19.

Nissan is starting to slowly revamp its lineup. The 2021 Rogue was one of the first models to be fully upgraded and the 2022 Pathfinder and Frontier are next in line. The 2021 Armada and Kicks also went through mid-cycle refreshes.

The redesigned Pathfinder should be available sometime this summer

This three-row crossover competes with the Chevy Traverse, Ford Explorer, and Honda Pilot.
