New Nissan Pathfinder
NEW PATHFINDER: Nissan's crossover has gone to a unibody.

Nissan has revealed the production version of its 2013 Pathfinder.

The new SUV moves from body-on-frame to monocoque construction, shaving several hundred kilos off its weight.

It will be powered by a V6 mated with a CVT, which is expected to boost fuel economy by 2 per cent compared with the outgoing model with a V6.

Nissan says the Pathfinder will feature four-wheel-drive. As the platform is linked to an Infiniti model we think it will offer a diesel too.
