2. Nissan Pathfinder prices in Nigeria

Nissan Pathfinder is a mid-size sport utility vehicle line built on the platform of Nissan’s compact pick-up truck. It was first introduced in 1985 and made as the successor to Nissan Bushmaster. The Pathfinder’s size stays between the Murano and Armada while the price tag is in the middle of Xterra and Murano.

Pathfinder was originally designed as a compact SUV but since 1995, this series has turned to mid-size category. Over 30 years, these front-engine models have come in different automobile layouts, ranging from rear-wheel-drive vehicles to all-wheel-drive vehicles. They also vary in engine types running on either diesel or petrol.

The very first gen followed ladder-type frame of Nissan Hardbody trucks with borrowed rear five-link coil suspension from Safari. Its introduction was Nissan’s response to a myriad of emerging off-road vehicles from other rivalries such as Chevrolet Blazer, Ford Bronco II, Toyota 4Runner, Mitsubishi Pajero or Isuzu MU.
