I know that the R53 Pathfinder is relatively new in its lifecycle.
That being said
In about 2-4 years down the line, this vehicle will get a Mid Cycle facelift / refresh

I know this may be early to talk about but:
What kind of features would you want or expect for the MMC facelift of Pathfinder R53?

For me, it would be these three:

1) 12.3 inch infotainment display screen

Vehicle Car Automotive design Motor vehicle Speedometer




Nissan has been implementing the 12.3 inch infotainment screen for some cars that are made in Japan and the United Kingdom.
Interestingly, the 12.3 inch screen has made its North American debut in the MMC facelift Nissan Altima L34 vehicles that are made in Mississippi

We will definitely see it in the Pathfinder at some point in the future (obviously for the MMC facelift)

2) LED turn signal indicators for both front and rear

The current vehicle only uses incandescent globes for the turn signals............so hopefully, the MMC facelift will switch to full LED turn signals for that one.

3) More fuel-efficient powertrain options (especially for overseas markets)

Something more fuel efficient like Diesel and/or Hybrid would be appreciated.

I'd like the front passenger seat to have a 6-way adjustment plus lumbar support on the SL trim level.
I'd like the memory seat function returned to the SL trim level as well as the tilt-down side view mirrors when in reverse.
I'd like the motion activated lift gate restored to the SL trim level.
I also like the idea of LED everything (signal lights and all inside auxiliary lights).
And finally, I'd like the blinking red LED dashboard light restored as part of the integral alarm once the car is turned off.

memory seat, electric folding mirrors, electric steering tilt control, heated and cooled seats front and rear, electric tilt headrests,
Ventilated rear seats would be a dream..........especially in hot climates and tropical regions.
I think the Hyundai Palisade and Kia Telluride have it......so I hope Nissan is taking notes on it as well.

All of the above, plus a fuel tank cover that locks while the engine is on or when the key fob isn't near the vehicle. I'd also like to see a pass through light under the gear shifter become standard instead of an option, and I think I would prefer a non-Bose 13 speaker stereo system. It's good, but it's a little weak in some areas. I miss the coat hooks in the second row. Also, I think Nissan not providing a recall or at the very least an option for owners of the '22 to get the 6 way passenger chair that's now standard in the '23 Pathfinders is criminal. Other than that, I LOVE my '22 Pathfinder.

My wife’s ventilated seats in her Murano have broken 3 times at $1200 a pop. Careful what you wish for. If you have one Nissan ventilated seat, unless you like pain, you don’t need anymore.

Hmmmm... Where should I start....

  • LED projector headlights that follow the road
  • Make HUD + night vision standard on all R53 trims
  • Add the tranny cooler to all trim levels (deliver the true 6k lbs towing capacity to all)
  • Tow Hitch for all!!! (include a cover for those customers that don't want it to show)
  • LED bulbs (inside and out), brakes and turn signals
  • 12.3" HD display (from QX60) make it standard for all trims
  • LED fog lights standard on all trims (again)
  • 20" wheels
  • Two-tone paint across all trim levels (as an option)
  • Wireless CarPlay AND Android Auto
  • Android OS (instead of Nissan infotainment)
  • Open up in-dash screen to support third-party app data (i.e. Google Maps, Waze, etc)
  • Digital dash for all trims
Pie in sky :
  • An EV version of the R53 (I know, but I really want an EV version of the R53)
  • EV conversion kit (repurpose dealer model to support factory conversions)

I'm sure I'll have more..

I agree with all of @DRK-PTHFNDR's wish list.
To this list I will add:
-6-way adjustable passenger front seat with lumbar support
-Integral LED red blinking light on dash to function when the engine is off and the doors are locked (just like it used to be!
-A big agreement with all LED lights inside and out (signals, four way flashers, brakes)
-Seat memory (all trim levels)
-Intelligent climate control (that actually works!)
-Bose sound system starting at least at the SL level
-Puddle lamps (rear doors)
-Locking fuel door, as has been suggested
