Sneak Shot of the Nissan Pathfinder Deconstructed
Nissan recently released a concept image of the next generation Pathfinder. Here at Peters of Nashua, we know our blog readers not only want cutting edge news, but wild and outlandish theories about things we couldn't possibly know about. So with that in mind, we've run the image through our CSI Enhancifier, and here's what we think:
- Joining the ranks of Jaguar and Mercedes, it seems Nissan has finally decided to add a hood ornament. Rather than the company logo, however, they have instead chosen to affix a fine-looking Swordfish.
- The lack of headlights was disconcerting at first, but taken with the image as a whole, it's actually quite brilliant. Much like the "Eco" button on the Nissan Juke, the new Pathfinder will have a "Stealth" button that will make it invisible to radar and the naked eye. Perfect for covert surveillance in foreign countries. Goodbye stealth drones, hello Pathfinder!
- Car companies get flak all the time for trying to reinvent the wheel, metaphorically speaking. But here it seems Nissan is reinventing the wheel, literally! Time will tell what benefits the "two thirds of a wheel" design will provide, but it looks lighter at least.
- And finally, the red streak. There is a fair bit of discussion among the Peters staff what this is supposed to represent. Many are suggesting that it is a red shell for taking out your opponents. Personally, I believe it is meant to represent turbo flame boosts for better Tokyo Drifting. Either way, this will probably end up only being available on the Nismo trim level.
