If you've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of the 2022 Pathfinder but your current lease is ending soon, Nissan has a solution. According to a bulletin sent to dealers yesterday, current NMAC lessees may qualify for a lease extension until the redesigned SUV begins arriving at dealers this summer.

To qualify, your current Nissan lease will have to be within 90 days of its maturity date. While a number of brands offer early turn-in and pull-ahead programs to help get customers into new cars faster, the program in question provides a way to bridge the gap until the all-new Pathfinder hits dealer lots.

NMAC, which recently underwent a name change to Nissan Motor Acceptance Company LLC, says customers should call 866-414-7188 for more information. Programs like this often precede highly anticipated upcoming models. For example, Ford began offering lease extensions to Mach-E buyers last fall.

But is the new Pathfinder worth the wait? To start, it will be the first Pathfinder redesign since 2013 and will get a decidedly more upscale look akin to the popular Rogue. Along with the latest safety technology, a new 9-speed automatic transmission will replace Nissan's often-criticized CVT.

While Nissan is skipping the 2021 model year Pathfinder, those looking for a deal should be aware that 2020 Pathfinder prices are being discounted with up to $5,000 in dealer cash. This may be a better alternative to the deal Nissan is actually advertising: 0.9% financing for 60 months.

We recently ranked Nissan among the best brands for buyers with bad credit because of its partnerships with subprime lenders. That said, recent changes in how Nissan pays its dealers may incentivize some to encourage well-qualified buyers to take out larger and longer auto loans.
