The fourth-generation Nissan Pathfinder has been around since 2012. But for the 2022 model year, we'll finally get the all-new, completely redesigned fifth generation.

The first Pathfinder was introduced in the 1980s as a rad two-door, body-on-frame SUV. But for its fourth generation, Nissan changed that formula to a front-wheel drive crossover for families. It ruffled some feathers.

The all-new, fifth-gen Pathfinder is still front-wheel drive (though four-wheel drive is an available option). A new design and more technology are offered, according to a press release.

No pricing was announced at this time, but to give you an idea, the current Pathfinder is priced from $31,980. The 2022 Pathfinder will likely cost slightly more and goes on sale this summer.
