Nissan gives the 2017 Pathfinder a serious refresh

Whether it's the new engine, new bodywork or the new infotainment system, there's a whole lot of fresh kit in the 2017 Pathfinder.

Cars are Andrew's jam, as is strawberry. After spending years as a regular ol' car fanatic, he started working his way through the echelons of the automotive industry, starting out as social-media director of a small European-focused garage outside of Chicago. From there, he moved to the editorial side, penning several written features in Total 911 Magazine before becoming a full-time auto writer, first for a local Chicago outlet and then for CNET Cars.

The exterior remains conservative, with Nissan choosing to not include the angular headlights from Murano and Maxima.

The grille, hood and both front and rear fasciae have all been updated.

The Pathfinder features a lower coefficient of drag than before (0.326 vs. 0.34), which should help fuel economy.

Under that new hood lies an also-new engine.

Despite the bumps in power, fuel economy should stay the same.

Inside, the changes are fewer and farther between. There's a redesigned center console, some new trim finishers, an additional front USB port and a new cloth seat material.
