2020 Nissan Pathfinder

2020 Nissan Pathfinder at Bourgeois Midland Nissan

For over 30 years the Nissan Pathfinder hasn’t just found paths to adventure—it’s conquered them, too! The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder is no different, embracing the vehicle’s rich history of rugged utility, and offering power, versatility, and a heaping dose of that innovation Nissan is known for. Read on and learn more about the 2020 Nissan Pathfinder, a vehicle as at home on city streets as it is on backcountry roads, with Ontario’s favourite destination for all things Nissan: Bourgeois Midland Nissan!


The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder has been designed to offer unflinching utility, while still presenting itself as both a stylish and comfortable option for your Monday to Friday commute. The exterior of the Pathfinder manages to be both rugged and refined, with smooth lines complementing the heavy stance and large windows while the available LED low-beam projector headlights also wear multiple hats, providing a shining accent along with impressive visibility. The 2020 Pathfinder packs in more utility, from the available roof racks to the available Motion-Activated Liftgate, providing hands-free access to your Nissan thanks to the Nissan Intelligent Key.

Inside, a variety of premium options and trims abound, with a dual panel panoramic moonroof shining light on the leather-appointed seats along with the wood-tone trim and chrome accents. Seating for seven passengers need not be cramped, and Nissan’s EZ Flex™ Seating System with LATCH AND GLIDE technology offers unparalleled flexibility when it comes to seating. That same EZ Flex™ Seating System allows for the second and third-row seats to flip down in a hurry, creating an almost flat cargo floor with 2,260 litres of cargo space—plenty of space for hauling gear. Of course, even with the seats down the 2020 Nissan Pathfinder offers an abundance of interior storage space, thanks to an easy-access underfloor storage system.

The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder is a stout performer in any condition, thanks to a muscular 24-valve, 3.5-litre DOHC V6 engine capable of producing 284 horsepower along with 259 lb-ft of torque. Not only does this give the Pathfinder plenty of passing power on the highway, but it also allows for capable towing as well. Inside the city limits, the Pathfinder offers an efficient estimated fuel economy rating of 12.1 L/100 km thanks to Nissan’s smooth-shifting Xtronic CVT® (continuously variable transmission), providing a smart blend of instant access to power and easy driving. That estimated fuel efficiency turns into a stunning 8.9 L/100 km on the highway, allowing you to take longer road trips with fewer stops to refuel. Even more impressive? While front wheel drive comes standard on the base model of the 2020 Nissan Pathfinder, the estimated fuel economy above is found on the Intelligent 4×4-equipped versions of the Pathfinder available as an option or standard equipment throughout the vehicle’s lineup. In the models sporting Intelligent 4×4, an Advanced Drive-Assist® Display showcases how the vehicle distributes its torque between the front and rear axles for a smooth and controlled drive on any terrain.

Safety & Technology

While the heavy-duty performance capabilities and smart design of the 2020 Nissan Pathfinder make it a surefire crowd pleaser, the inclusion of Nissan’s always-innovative infotainment and safety features push it close to perfection. A tri-zone entertainment system allows your passengers access to movies, music, games, and more throughout the vehicle’s spacious cabin. The Bluetooth®-enabled, highly intuitive NissanConnect® infotainment system is a dash-mounted superstar, offering up hands-free access to navigation, security, and entertainment, keeping you connected without compromising on your safety. And speaking of safety, the full suite of Nissan Intelligent Mobility safety features create a calm and peaceful experience when piloting the 2020 Pathfinder. From the standard Intelligent Emergency Braking, to Intelligent Cruise Control, Blind Spot Warning, or Rear Cross Traffic Alert, the Pathfinder provides its driver with an extra set of eyes, keeping your passengers and cargo safe. 

Nissan Pathfinder Model Changes

As 2021 promises an extensive redesign to this capable SUV, the 2020 version saw few changes when compared to the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder. However, few changes were necessary to have the 2020 Pathfinder retain its spot at the head of the pack; 2019’s IIHS Top Safety Pick still offers more safety and driver assistance features standard than the competition, providing exceptional value to go along with the Pathfinder’s stylish design and engaging performance. One major upgrade to be found on the 2020 Pathfinder comes in the form of SV and SL Rock Creek Edition trims, a nod to the enduring legacy of this Nissan SUV thanks to unique exterior and interior details and 18-inch wheels.
