About the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder
The 2016 Pathfinder starts with an upscale exterior, which presents a smart fusion of signature Nissan styling cues and dynamic strength. The look is adventure-ready with wheel-oriented muscular fenders and a strong, stable stance. The upper body features an open cabin with a low beltline and thin A- and D-pillars, which flow smoothly into the rugged, durable-looking lower body. And, through the use of front and rear spoilers, rear tire deflectors and rear suspension fairings, Pathfinder achieves one of the best aerodynamic performances in the segment – a 0.34 coefficient of drag. Other exterior details include a wide chrome grille and large aerodynamic headlights, recessed front windshield wipers, roof rails, chrome door handles and large rear combination lights. An available Dual Panorama Moonroof (standard on Platinum) with sliding opening front panel and fixed rear glass panel, which extends over the 2nd and 3rd rows, combines with the large windows to create an open, airy interior environment. Nine exterior colors are offered for 2015: Java Metallic, Midnight Jade, Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, Magnetic Black, Cayenne Red, Glacier White, Pearl White and Arctic Blue Metallic.
