Nissan has unveiled a new “off-road” version of the Pathfinder crossover called Rock Creek. Sales of the new product in the U.S. market will begin in the summer of 2022.
The Rock Creek version of the Nissan Pathfinder has increased ground clearance by 16 mm, new shock absorbers, 18-inch wheels with off-road tires and a 3.5-liter gasoline V6 engine with increased horsepower to 299 hp. The car is equipped with a 9-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive.
The Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek stands out with black body trim, new bumpers and grille, and an optional roof rack. The interior, with split second-row seats, is finished in black leather and alcantara with contrasting orange stitching.
The new-generation Nissan Pathfinder appeared on the Russian market in February of this year, but already in early March its deliveries to our country were suspended. For the Russian market, this model was produced at the American Nissan plant in Smyrna, Tennessee. Thus, to date the lineup of Nissan in Russia includes Qashqai, X-Trail and Murano crossovers. Meanwhile, Nissan’s plant in St. Petersburg, which produces these models, had temporarily suspended operations since March 14 due to supply shortages of components.
At the end of the first three months of 2022, 1,145 Nissan vehicles were sold in Russia, down 19% from the same period last year.
