Nissan Pathfinder Generations

First Generation (1986-1995)

Initially, the Pathfinder was a two-door SUV closely related to the Nissan Hardbody truck. It was a body-on-frame construction. The first-generation Pathfinder was a compact SUV that was powered by a 2.4-liter inline-4 engine that produced 110 horsepower. In 1990, Nissan added a four-door model.

Second Generation (1996-2004)

The second-generation Pathfinder was a mid-size SUV that was based on the Nissan Frontier pickup truck. It was powered by a 3.3-liter V6 engine that produced 170 horsepower. Transitioned from the body-on-frame to a unibody construction, which generally offers better ride quality and handling at the expense of rugged off-road capability. Engine options during this period included a V6 and, in some markets, a diesel variant. Four-wheel-drive remained a popular option.

Third Generation (2005-2012)

The third-generation Pathfinder was a full-size SUV that was based on the Nissan Armada. It was powered by a 4.0-liter V6 engine that produced 266 horsepower. Returned to the body-on-frame construction, emphasizing the Pathfinder’s ruggedness and off-road capability. Powered predominantly by V6 and V8 engine options. Offered three rows of seating to accommodate up to seven passengers.

Fourth Generation (2013-2022)

The fourth-generation Pathfinder was a mid-size SUV that was based on the Nissan D platform. It was powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produced 260 horsepower. Switched back to the unibody construction, with a focus on family comfort and on-road refinement. Typically powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, although a hybrid variant was briefly available. Continued to offer three rows of seating and modern features, such as Nissan’s suite of driver-assistance and infotainment technologies.

Fifth generation (2023-present)

The fifth-generation Pathfinder is a mid-size SUV that is based on the Nissan FM platform. It is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 284 horsepower.
