Other changes for the 2018 model year include two new colors – Scarlet Ember and Midnight Pine; standard Intelligent Cruise Control (ICC) and NissanConnectSM with Navigation and Services on Pathfinder SL grade (previously standard only on Platinum grade); additional four USB ports (six total); and revised option package naming and content.
The Rear Door Alert system can help remind customers of anything that may be forgotten in the rear seat – pets, valuables, dry cleaning, groceries and more. If the system detects that a rear door is opened prior to driving, and the customer does not open a rear door again at the end of the trip, the system can remind customers that something might be left in the rear seat. RDA is designed to be simple, unobtrusive and easily turned on or off as needed.
The new Pathfinder Midnight Edition, which was introduced late in the 2017 model year on the exclusive Platinum grade, has now moved to the more popular SL model (late availability). It features exclusive black 20-inch Midnight Edition aluminum-alloy wheels, black mirror caps, black spoiler, black roof rails, black grille surround, black front and rear fascia accents, black license plate finisher, black badging, black splash guards, illuminated kick plates, exterior approach lighting and available Midnight Edition floor mats. It is offered in a choice of Pearl White, Gun Metallic and Magnetic Black.
In addition, Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) is now standard on the 2018 Pathfinder – part of a projected one million 2018 U.S. Nissan vehicles, including seven of the company’s most popular models, to offer the advanced system. AEB3(previously known as Forward Emergency Braking) uses radar technology to monitor a vehicle’s proximity to the vehicle ahead, giving the driver audible and visual display warnings to alert the driver to reduce the vehicle’s speed if a potential frontal collision is detected. If the driver fails to respond, the AEB system can apply the brakes, helping the driver to avoid the collision or reduce the speed of impact if it is unavoidable.
The seven-passenger 2018 Pathfinder is offered in 2-wheel-drive and 4-wheel-drive configurations, and in four well-equipped grade levels: S, SV, SL and Platinum.
