Nissan previewed the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show (NAIAS). The new vehicle moves from a truck (body on frame) platform to a unibody platform - Nissan's D-Platform, which is the basis of the Altima and Maxima sedans, and Murano crossover vehicle. This move (though questioned by my die hard Pathfinder fans) makes the up-coming Pathfinder more marketable to families that desire seven-seater capabilities, while offering car-like refinement and convenience. The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is set to be launched in the fall of 2012.
