2023 Nissan Pathfinder



INDIANAPOLIS — The original Pathfinder was a pretty hard-core off-roader based on Nissan’s rugged hardbody compact pickup.  First available with only two doors, but later four, it helped lead America away from station wagons and into family-friendly SUVs.  Subsequent generations became ever softer, eventually looking like a pudgy blimp only the Brady Bunch would love.  That is behind us as the current generation is still pretty plush, but returns style and capability to its roots.
