“Four-wheel drive; off-road proficiency; towing capability and an athletic appearance. Throughout 30 years, these are the mainstays of the Pathfinder nameplate and remain key requirements for the adventure-inspired customer in this segment today,” added Matsumoto. “This special edition combines a more aggressive look, taking the popular Platinum grade level to an even higher level with stylish appointments to make it a Canadian enthusiasts’ favourite.”
Best of all, the new Midnight Edition costs no more than the regular Platinum at just $48,478 plus freight and dealer fees. The sportier looking model goes on sale across Canada in March, “with limited production units” says Nissan.
