There's a new Nissan Pathfinder on the horizon. The fifth generation of the model is expected to debut next week. Ahead of the debut, the Japan-based automaker has released a teaser video showing a good portion of the redesigned three-row SUV.

The video starts by showcasing the new Nissan logo followed by large "Pathfinder" script that appears to be located on the rear of the SUV. The Pathfinder moves from the water to the mud to snow, giving an indication of the vehicle's all-terrain capabilities, before showing off narrow, wide set headlights at the corners of the front of the vehicle.

Next, the full back of the vehicle is shown off as it traverses a dirt trail. This Pathfinder appears boxier and beefier than its predecessor, with dark pillars and what is possibly a darkened roof.

The Pathfinder was last updated for the 2017 model year, given a beefier appearance. From the looks of things, Nissan has taken that a step further with the new model. giving it a more square appearance in line with how the Armada and Rogue look.

The Pathfinder is the fourth redesigned or refreshed SUV that Nissan has introduced in the last year. The refreshed Nissan Kicks started off things in early 2020. The all-electric Nissan Ariya SUV and two-row Rogue were next with a complete redesign. Then the Armada debuted in late 2020. Nissan has the Rogue Sport/Qashqai redesign up next. It's already been spotted testing.

Nissan will also introduce a new Z car and the next-gen Frontier midsize pickup truck in the coming year as part of its robust rollout of cars of the future.

The company has also recently added a roster of driver assistance and safety technologies as a part of the Nissan Safety Shield 360 suite to a number of current models.

The fifth-gen Pathfinder will debut on February 4.

Comfortable midsize sedan

2022 Nissan Altima: Three things to know

The Nissan Altima is a good value and a comfortable car.

Nissan

The Nissan Altima may not get the attention or the praise that the Toyota Camry and Honda Accord get, but it's a solid entry in an ultra-competitive segment. It's also one of few options in its class with available all-wheel drive. We spent a week with the 2022 Nissan Altima SR Midnight Edition with AWD and came away from the experience impressed. Here are three things to know about the car.

The 2022 Nissan Altima is a Good Value

With a starting price in the mid-$20,000 range and available all-wheel drive, it's hard to complain about value here. The Altima is still reasonably priced at the top end, where it maxes out at around $35,000 before options and fees. That's a great value for a spacious, comfortable car like the Altima, and with all-wheel drive it's a great all-weather commuter.

2022 Altima Interior Space and Comfort are Generous

It's easy to ignore Nissan's Zero Gravity seats as another marketing buzzword, but they are legitimately comfortable and supportive in a way that not many others are. Available leather upholstery and contrast stitching give the interior an upscale feel, but even lower trims' cloth upholstery feels nice and works well from a visual standpoint. Up front, there's room for both passengers to stretch out, and the driver won't feel cramped on leg or headroom. Back-seat passengers get a similar treatment, as there's plenty of space for adults and kids. Parents will find an easy time loading and unloading car seats as well.

The 2023 Nissan Altima Gets an Update

Nissan is refreshing the Altima for 2023 with a facelift, new tech, and better safety features. The new car will go on sale in the fall of 2022 and will come in several trims, including one with Nissan's truck VC-Turbo engine. The Altima's most noticeable update will be its front fascia, which is all-new for 2023. Nissan gives the car a fresh grille design that varies depending on the trim, and LED headlights will be standard. Nissan Safety Shield 360 is standard, and the Altima is available with all-wheel drive, ProPilot Assist, and more.
