Pathfinder R52 - 2012 model - ugly?

Postby dieselfan » Wed Aug 11, 2010 1:46 pm

I REALLY hope this is not the final version

it's starting to look like the Mitsubushi Triton iceblock effect, were the rear sags and then oddly goes straight.

It will have to GROW on one, the current shape was an instant like by many even Yota fans. Some local mags call it the best looking SUV ever. This, I dunno, but it will have the great V6 3l diesel. Saw this engine pumping out [email protected] (ramped) and they reckon less fuel than the 2.5d. The SUV version is around [email protected]

That isn't it... That looks like a standard US Market 2004+ Nissan Armada to me. Unless for some reason they decide to ship that as a PF to the rest of the world?

When the Armada came out it orgin had Pathfinder on the side doors.
There was the Pathfinder and the Pathfinder Armada. I think over time Nissan dropped the Pathfinder name

no its awesome.

the only reason i chose the pathfinder over it i cause of the shorter wheel base.

Armadas have a very very powerful engine, but get crested and stuck much easier cause they're toooo long.

I think we are more than likely going to see this as the new pathfinder

If anything, I think that would replace the Armada.
