Product Overview

Nissan Pathfinder Mk5 (chassis code R53) is a large crossover in production from 2021. It is available with a single V6 engine that displaced 3.5 liters.
Sharing the rather imposing styling of the Nissan Armada, the Pathfinder is essentially a re-bodied car with little to no offroad capabilities. Interestingly, Nissan still uses its old N/A V6 engine, which is a notable plus. However, it means that the Pathfinder cannot be sold in the more "woke" of regimes with the ridiculous "6d" emission standard.
