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.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!
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.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.
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.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.
