2022 Nissan Pathfinder spied in UAE, to come in a hybrid variant [Video]

A new video and fresh spy shots posted by instagram.com user nissanarabia offer a good look at the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder. The prototype was spotted this time in Dubai, UAE. Nissan is testing the next-gen Pathfinder in the U.S. as well. Like the previous sighting in Sharjah, the test mule is heavily camouflaged and the uploads provide a better look at the upcoming SUV’s silhouette.

The next-gen Nissan Pathfinder will feature conventional proportions and look just as boxy as its predecessor. It will put on trendier design bits for its next generation, with a more sharply defined front fascia.

The headlamps of the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder are noticeably taller and angular on the next-gen model. The radiator grille is wider and emphasize the new edgy styling with horizontal slats. At the rear, the next-gen Nissan Pathfinder flaunts sleek new wraparound combination lamps that complement the sharper headlamps. The lighting system will likely be all-LED units.

The next-gen Nissan Pathfinder’s interior would have remarkable changes. Expect a new car-like design inspired by that of the 2021 Nissan Rogue. A low-profile virtual instrument cluster, a floating center touchscreen and a toned-down dashboard, center console and floor console for more space would make it a better car.

Underpinning the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder should be the CMF-C/D platform of the Nissan Rogue and the upcoming 2022 Nissan Rogue Sport. The current Pathfinder’s hybrid variant didn’t find success in the U.S. market and Nissan discontinued it soon after the launch. Still, the company will likely launch the next-gen model’s hybrid variant, albeit with significant improvements. Like the Pathfinder Hybrid of the past, the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid should make use of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine.

The 2022 Nissan Pathfinder and the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid could arrive in U.S. showrooms late next year.

What is the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder release date?

Nissan could launch the 2022 Pathfinder in the U.S. market in H2 2021.
