Pathfinder is a medium-and large-sized SUV built by Nissan for the North American market. The first generation model was launched as early as 1985, and the fifth generation Nissan Pathfinder was released at the 2021 Los Angeles Auto Show. It is built on the same platform as the brand-new generation Infiniti QX60 currently made in China. Therefore, the "shadow" of Infiniti QX 60 can also be seen from this model. After entering China, Pathfinder was named "Exploration Six" by Dongfeng Nissan. Although the English name of the tail mark is the same, the appearance design is completely different. It can be regarded as a model built for the Chinese market, but the English name of "Pathfinder" is used.
In order to meet the demand of domestic consumers for space, SUV models launched by various automobile enterprises in recent years are getting bigger and bigger, while six exploration vehicles are the first medium and large SUV owned by Dongfeng Nissan. The overall size is basically equivalent to the ideal L7, Wenjie M7 and Xiaopeng G9 popular in the current market. Of course, as an oil car, Nissan's main competitors are Volkswagen Touang and Ford Explorer. Retail sales data show that Volkswagen Touon sold 48,700 vehicles in 2023 and Ford Explorer 27,000.
It is learned from Dongfeng Nissan's official website that the SUVs currently on sale under the brand include brand-new Qijun (compact SUV), Xiaoke (compact SUV) and Jinke (small SUV), while the six-way exploration of positioning medium and large SUV is Dongfeng Nissan's SUV with the largest size and will also be Dongfeng Nissan's highest-priced model.
From the product performance point of view, the appearance and interior decoration of Nissan exploration six can not be as bright as the current domestic new energy products, which also conforms to the conservative and stable market development trend of Nissan and other traditional automobile manufacturers. Of course, 2.0T+9AT is enough to meet the daily demand, which may be attractive to consumers who like oil vehicles, but as a traditional joint venture medium and large SUV, referring to the performance of other models on the market, it is not easy for Nissan to seize market share with medium and large SUVs, especially in the new energy vehicle market.
