I think Nissan should consider making this styling package for it's cars. just imagine how cool a PF would look with a 'nismo styling package'

I would support a NISMO styling package or just a general tuning package. It could make the Pathfinder look really aggressive, which would be really cool. Why not add in the rest of the NISMO parts too so that the Pathfinder can really get going. It would be such a beast!

I totally agree, there would be nothing better than that.It also puts some life into the PF, some think it's boring and this would be a great way to make it a bit fun.

Don't think that will be happening. Nismo Pathfinder said noone ever.

Pathfinder is inherently not a platform that can be made sporty. The body has too much flex, and the MPG advantage would vanish if throttle response was made more immediate.

I own a Juke, and it's a much sportier platform from the get-go. Pretty much a Japanese Mini Cooper S. Nismo treatment makes sense there.

Once I tried making a soft but fast car into a sporty one - a Lexus GS430. After all the suspension upgrades and chassis bracing, it started to feel pretty good, but also the windshield seals started to leak because the body was not designed to take that kind of stress.

So yeah, there will be no Pathfinder Nismo.

Good point, in the past it was more possible for the pathfinder to get a sport styling package but now it's more of a vehicle for soccer moms and not people looking for the pathfinder they were once familiar with years ago.

And if you look at the sales statistics of the Nismo Juke. You will probably see that it also was not that great of a model.

well Nissan makes a Micra/March NISMO...







If someone green lit this abortion I don;t see why a pathy couldn't get the same treatment. Its pretty much cosmetic.

But then again, where is the demand? Who wants a sporty camper van?

Ok so a NISMO Pathfinder isn't likely to happen, but the styling package would be really cool. A special edition Pathfinder could have the styling package and add in some other features. It wouldn't be a performance model, but it would have an appeal to some of the same sorts of people.

A styling package is what im all for because it wouldn't make sense for them to install performance modifications in the PF as it wouldn't make sense.

But so far it doesn't seem like even a sport styling package would be possible.

Not for anything though no other Nissan SUVs have recieved the NISMO treatment. Juke doesn't count, its not an SUV...

I wish Stillen would do some Mods for the PF because they do a great job on the Maxima

I wish Nissan had a Nismo version of all of their cars. But that'd water down the Nismo name tag. So I understand why they don't do that.

Like was said above, I just wish there were a few companies who made aftermarket parts for this gen pathfinder. Stillen would be great (I have several parts from them for my '11 maxima), but they're not on board yet. I'm FB friends with a rep from stillen and have tried digging for more info, but he had none to give. ;)
