Is the NEW 2022 Nissan Pathfinder a BETTER midsize SUV than a Highlander?

Joylandi 22-May, 2021
The all new Pathfinder is here and Nissan has brought some big changes for 2022. On the outside you will find a bolder shape, standard LED lights, and optional 20in wheels. On the inside there is leather seating, 9in infotainment screen, 12in digital gauge display, and more room than ever before. Under the hood is a 3.5L V6 that is bolted to a ZF 9-speed automatic transmission. Is the NEW 2022 Nissan Pathfinder a BETTER midsize SUV than a Highlander?

  • Stay tuned to Part 2 on June 9th @ 7am ET full cargo & driving impressions.

    • I don’t even waste time watching other car review channels because joe is authentic.

    • @stillatin I am curious to know this as well.

    • I wish if do a comparison with the Kia Telluride! Thank you for the video

    • @Raiti's Rides is June 9th the sale date? Or just the embargo for the rest of it

    • I think it has only wireless apple carplay like rogue

  • I DO NOT like the back seats. I car camp on weekends. This will not work.

  • It they put prices under the telluride game over

  • My dealership has been out of cars for awhile hopefully they are getting the Pathfinder 2022 when they restock 🙏 also do you know if the pathfinder will have window shades

  • I really hope nissan comes back to making reasonably affordable cars that are well built. because even toyota is getting too expensive for the average person.

  • You skipped the cargo area???

  • No more CVT transmission!!

  • Does anyone know why the Pathfinder only has 7.1 inches of ground clearance and not 8.1 like most SUVs in its class??

  • The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said, “Among the signs of the Hour are the reduction of knowledge, the prevalence of ignorance, the prevalence of adultery, and the abundance of women and scarcity of men such that fifty women will be maintained by a single man.”

  • Somebody please asks Nissan to update that key fob??? Was waiting for this car and as an owner of the 2013 model,this is a really clean one worth buying but that key fob just hit me in the stomach 😭😭😭

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • I'm glad that the CVT transmission is not included on the new pathfinder!!!

  • Let's go 👊👍👌

  • The Palisade, Acadia and a couple of others give you body colored wheel opening trim on their top trim models-much more attractive. The cubby under the console is virtually useless unless you are a contortionist. The Jeep key fob is much better than this style that Nissan offers.

  • I have a similar infotainment in my new Titan. It is quick to boot up and very nice looking.

  • I Liked the 1990s Pathfinders. Good Show, Joe.

  • 21:18 "It's gonna be close with the Pathfinder." That is the Pathfinder though.

  • It looks ugly and not matching

  • Excuse the Mud! Excuse the Dirt! Excuse the Snow! With the flowing hands lol!!! Good one

  • I bought a new 2006 Pathfinder. It was a nicely made SUV that performed very well for 2006. I bought a 2012 Pathfinder and by that time you could see the quality was slipping and it was behind the times in design. 2013 they redesigned it into a CUV/Minivan type vehicle that had nothing in common with the previous truck based vehicle. I bought a 2017 Toyota 4Runner and its a far better vehicle in every respect than the Nissans were. This new Nissan looks better but time will tell if the quality is there.

  • Wish I can afford the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder....please get those chips out so the prices come down because it is getting ridiculous. DEFINITELY DONT LIKE THE ELECTRIC SHIFTER.....unnecessary idea to save money on essential moving parts. For example let's say down the road you need to put your pathfinder in neutral for the tow truck to get you out of a jam because your truck doesn't start. How do we do that???? Also because this new shifter doesn't have a long history of reliability, perhaps there will be MANY electrical issues and shifting problems down the road??? Sometimes I just dont UNDERSTAND why car companies just cannot leave the Essentials alone? I mean if it ain't broke dont fix it.... I may not buy any truck with that feature........JUST BECAUSE This example may be the same as the push button start instead of a key start. When one wants to power up and down the windows while the vehical is off now you will have to start up the vehicle, burn gas just to get air....I totally agree love this

  • What's even the purpose of doing these videos if you can't give driving impressions? Why not just wait till you can? It's just comes across as free advertising for the auto maker and calls into question your integrity.

  • All that and crappy mileage.....Yeah....better than Highlander....um...no

  • The hood of the Nissan Pathfinder suck they should have a hydraulics arms

  • I wondered if Nissan is paying you

  • It’s a Nissan so No it’s not

  • A non cvt tranny, now thats a start

  • What happened to the cargo part?? Also is Nissan going to make an infinity version? Really enjoy watching your reviews. Ps I’m a car guy

  • Thanks Raiti. We need a sport version with the upcoming 400Z motor!!

  • According with Canadian Dealer in Ontario, they will be available in August over here. Anxious to try it out.

  • Bring the XTerra back

  • Can’t afford a Pathfinder but there’s 3 major reasons why I don’t own a Rogue right now, it’s C-V-T

  • THAT CENTER CONSOL got me yo! Holy crap! Family friendly for sure! I love the cups on the door AND middle consol!! I need a Raiti's comparison of Highlander, Pathfinder, Sorento, and Sante Fe side by side comparison! DO ETTTTTTTTT lol

  • The font of the PATHFINDER looks like Tahoma Bold.

  • I had an 86 Pathfinder. It was one of the best built SUVs I ever had. I did not like the newer versions of Pathfinders. I ordered the new 2022 Platinum Pathfinder. I had the chance to see one and sit in it and start it up. Impressive.

  • What’s wrong with cvts ,!!!!!!! They give more mileage and reliable .....

    • We ended up getting an accord instead

    • Lol our cvt in our Altima went out at 24,000 miles

  • I don’t like the square shape. Previous version looked more stylish. I am glad the CVT is gone and would love to get ProPilot but not thrilled about the boxy shape.

  • Why did they put those stapler headlights? They look like they adopted the accord tail lights a bit. A lot of redesigns for 2021/2022 but they're making all cars overall look the same, especially with the tail light designs. Looks good because its brand new but 2-3 years down the road it's gonna be bland and boring because the car companies just copying off each other instead of being unique. The back of the new Honda civics especially you could easily mistake for like 3 other cars at least. Same with the infotainment etc. Somebody put a 10 inch touch screen now we all want 10 inch or 20 inch touch screen, and they put gloss black all over it? Hey let's just make ours look exactly the same.

  • The Pathfinder used to compete with the 4Runner until Nissan neutered it by turning it into a soccermom mobile. It has looked bland and boring ever since. They should bring it's 4x4 history back and make the Murano the soccer mom SUV.

  • When did the Armada become more off-road oriented than the Pathfinder? Not a fan of what they've done to the Pathfinder. It used to rival the 4runner. Thumbs up on the review.

  • What about bench seats?

  • Did ZF fix their transmission issues? If so, I might be looking into getting rid of my ‘18.

  • Hey Joe. Great videos. I am big fan. I think you do a great job demonstrating the vehicles. No one does better marketing than you. Take care

    • Hi Hadi! Thank you for your awesome support! We appreciate you!

  • What's the source for the "35 factory options"? I'm curious what's available? Is there a list somewhere?

  • Can you do a video about the Nissan Versa

  • If you are say like that Toyota it’s not good?lol

  • What is the towing capacity?

  • How many price

  • my heart will always go with the prettier car. highlander all day

  • Not even close to the Highlander Limited. The Highlander family is way ahead of this ugly boxy Pathfinder

    • Thanks for sharing your input on this one!

  • I would so buy a Raiti’s Rides cleaning kit IF it came with a signed Twinkie box

  • Is this Pathfinder built in Japan?

  • Finally Nissan! It is the time for me to try something different after being a Toyota and Mazda owner.

  • Excellent design and much more premium, futuristic interior. Was hoping for more Hp than my 2019 pathfinder. Moving in the right direction Nissan.

  • The black chrome will that be for the grill, tires and trim?

  • You can tell he doesn't like snow a bit

  • Love the optional mud on the side mirrors😆😆

  • Raitis rides car cleaning kit Joe you should consider that get your self some product on the shelf’s with your name on it

  • Just taking the rid of cvt crap transmission pays its price and holds its value.

  • OMG NO CVT!!!!! 😱

  • Nothing to compare here. This pile of garbage won't go over t 150k . Toyota means reliability and quality nissan is nice looking crap no wonder why they are bankcrupt.

    • Thanks for sharing your thoughts on this one.

  • Nissan hasn't made a vehicle like this in awhile I think.

  • Brilliant camera work, thanks! Love your presentations... Can’t wait to see your vid, on the 2022 Infinity QX60😀

  • no

  • Nice review thanks, bit worried about your dietary recommendations tho, diabetes central lol !

  • Is it really ZF trans ??? Wow if it is

  • Great (p)review on this awesome car! Looking forward to the 2nd part. Keep it up Joe!!

  • I heard rumors about the new 2022 maxima and a new transmission ❤️

  • if they'd take the cvt out the sentra and put a digital gauge cluster id get that so fast

  • Is there an Off Road version? I have a R51 05 Off Road version.

  • Rear wiper looks more rugged than hideen. Also like the early gen. Cant have it both ways man.

  • Having dirty gloss black plastic is like being cold in the winter... if you're cold it's your own fault for not putting on enough layers, and if your gloss black is dirty its your own fault for not keeping it clean. Honest to Pete, a micro-fiber towel in the center console goes a long way. Whip it out at a stop light or railroad track and give the dash a once-over. Takes all of 5 seconds and keeps your gloss black free of dust and fingerprints.

  • Wow great car and I love inside

  • This is gonna be my Next Truck! I already have a Rogue! Imma Have a Rogue and a Pathfinder. 😃😃🙌🏾🙌🏾❤️❤️👍🏾

  • Hi Zonkman, I think Nissan did a great job but unlike anything else in life, Not everything is color Rose's with Nissan or any other competitors because car people came to an imperfect car world but Nissan had done it again.

  • Joe Rati!!!!? Leaving Florida for once 😁

  • Great review but what about the cargo area?

  • Wow! I am very interested. Can not wait for the full data review.

  • Love your reviews

  • Part 2 The Test Drive is gonna be a good one as well

  • The COKE MAN

  • Will never own a Nissan because of Brie Larsen

  • I did not have Nissan on my list but I do now. Love these reviews. This is the category I have been shopping the last several months and your videos have save me a TON OF TIME.... love when you point out the ZONX ! I am definitely going ask about the optional Montana mud....

    • I am so glad that I could share this one with you Steve!

  • They screwed up the ground clearance! Should be 9” or more not 7”!

  • Let's think about Pathfinder was head to head 4Runner... But today is highlander?? Come on! We need really 4x4 off road suv, not this...

  • Great video. They did a nice job on this. Those cup holders are perfect for my peppermint patties !😍

  • i think nissan's ownership of jatco means other models are stuck with jatco. whether or not jatco could produce a decent transmission is moot now. their rep is poor. i hope this zf can help, but who knows if it will last.

  • Joe! My boi! I’m trying to see that junk in the trunk baby! What happened?

    • @Raiti's Rides 🤦🏾‍♂️ I guess I missed that part! Embargos and such lol Thanks Joe! I will be patiently waiting for part 2!

    • Part 2 brother on June 9

  • The new Pathfinder looks fantastic. I absolutely love this rugged SUV.

    • Seven inches of ground clearance and a faux skid plate. Rugged?

    • AGREED!

  • Loved the part "Mud is optional" lol

    • Thanks for letting me share some laughs with you!

  • 9:50 to the only important point. Check this again in 6 years, when it has a history.

  • Nice truck, could have been better, kia and Hyundai should have been WAKE UP CALL for the competition on how to make a nice looking truck

  • U need to come back to Florida, it's in the 90s here ...I would love to see some snow ❄, looks 2 cold 🥶 lol

  • Can you comment on the headroom and legroom. Looking at the spec sheet the pathfinder has several inches more than competition. I wonder if it was noticable. Anyway, wish I could buy one today, dealer said they don't expect them to arrive until the end of summer. Also, you said something about a 2-speed transfer case?

  • I like it when he says "let's talk about what's going on"

  • What a bad friend, there are no subtitles in Spanish. I miss a good video.

  • 14:45 "I like the way it almost takes all 9 inches" 😁😁😁

  • No turbocharged inline 4 or turbo V6, no CVT..this is a step in the RIGHT direction! Now other automakers who are switching to turbo engines and CVT's seriously need to take note! 🤓📝

  • The Highlander has 299 horsepower with its naturally v6

  • Joe u and yr wife is working hard keep up the good work
