Since 1985, the Nissan Pathfinder has been a popular choice among drivers in the North New Jersey and Rockland County NY area because of its reliability, comfort and updated feature lineup.
There are several big changes made to the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder that make for a safer and more fun ride. For one, 4 additional USB ports are now included so everyone can plug in their phones, tablets and more to charge. Six USB ports means nobody has to worry about running out of battery life.
Also coming standard for the first time is automatic emergency braking, which we spoke in-depth about in a previous blog post. To sum it up, this system monitors how far ahead a vehicle is in front of you and will alert you if you’re approaching that car too quickly & will even apply the brakes automatically if a crash is imminent.
But that’s not the only innovative new technology in the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder.
Introducing Rear Door Alert
We know that life can be a rush sometimes. And that causes us to forget things in the back seats of our SUV like valuables, dry cleaning and groceries.
Inspired by a mom who left a pan of lasagna in the backseat of her car one night after a long day at work, Rear Door Alert helps remind you if you forgot anything in the back seat with a series of distinctive honks as you walk away from the Pathfinder.
The system, which can be switch on or off as needed, will only alert you if it detects that a rear door opened prior to driving and is not opened again at the end of a trip. This convenience comes standard in the 2018 Pathfinder.
2018 Nissan Pathfinder Midnight Edition
Debuting in the middle of the 2017 model year exclusively on the Platinum trim, the Nissan Pathfinder Midnight Edition is now offered on the SL trim instead. The SL now comes standard with Intelligent Cruise Control for added safety and NissanConnect with Navigation & Services to let you access popular 3rd-party apps.
But back to the Midnight Edition. If you’re looking for an SUV with blacked-out design cues, you’ll enjoy the touches of darkness found in the following:
- 20” Midnight edition aluminum-alloy wheels
- Mirror caps
- Rear spoiler
- Roof rails
- Grille surround
- Splash guards
- Front & rear fascia accents
- License plate finisher
Illuminated kick plates and exterior approach lighting serve as a nice contrast to the black features listed above, while the optional Midnight Edition floor mats give you the look & feel you desire inside.
