Since 1985, the Nissan Pathfinder has been the go-to SUV for families in the Westchester NY and Fairfield County CT area. The 2018 edition gives you even more new technologies inside and out!
One such technology for the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder is automatic emergency braking, which we detailed in a previous blog post. To sum it up, warns you when a collision is imminent with the car in front of you and will apply the brakes for you to minimize the impact of a crash.
Whether you choose the base Pathfinder S, the upgraded Pathfinder SV, the featured-packed Pathfinder SL or the top-of-the-line Pathfinder Platinum trim, automatic emergency braking comes standard. That means more peace of mind when driving on highways like 287, I-95 and the Hutch.
But that’s not the only thing that’s new for this SUV: there’s a brand-new technology that’s debuting in the 2018 Pathfinder before any other vehicle, the return of a popular mid-year appearance package and a number of other enhancements
Nissan Rear Door Alert
Inspired by a mother who left a pan of lasagna in the back seat of her vehicle, Rear Door Alert is designed to remind you to check the contents in the rear row before going to the store, work or home for the evening. It does so by honking a series of times as you walk away in a tone that’s unique to this system.
This technology monitors when a rear door gets opened & closed prior to a trip, but doesn’t get reopened once the vehicle is put into park and the ignition switches off. The horn sounds go from subtle to louder honks as you walk further away. The goal is for you to never leave your dirty gym bag, a doggy bag from a restaurant, your groceries or anything else in the car.
The best part about Nissan Rear Door Alert? It comes standard in every 2018 Nissan Pathfinder at our dealership location serving White Plains, New York!
2018 Nissan Pathfinder Midnight Edition
Offered in Pearl White, Gun Metallic & Magnetic Black exterior color choices, the Nissan Pathfinder Midnight Edition gives you a blacked-out appearance that’ll be sure to turn heads. It’s based on the SL trim to make it even easier to get a customized look for your SUV.
Let’s list out all of the black design cues that you get in the Midnight Edition:
- Exclusive 20” aluminum-alloy wheels
- Outside mirror caps
- Rear spoiler
- Roof rails
- Front & rear fascia accents
- Splash guards
- License plate finisher
Other features that are unique to this special-edition Pathfinder include exterior approach lighting, illuminated kick plates and optional Midnight Edition floor mats.
More 2018 Nissan Pathfinder Updates
There are several other things that are new for the 2018 model year for the Pathfinder. For starters, Scarlet Ember and Midnight Pine are the newest exterior color options available to give you a total of 8 choices to personalize your ride.
In addition to the Midnight Edition now being offered on the Nissan Pathfinder SL, this trim also gets a couple of key updates. For one, Intelligent Cruise Control now comes standard to give you additional peace of mind since it alerts you when it’s time to hit the brakes or switch it off to avoid a collision.
Additionally, the SL also has NissanConnect with Navigation and Services as a standard feature. This allows you to never get lost again with updated maps to your favorite destinations & live-traffic updates and gives you access to Amazon Alexa, so you can:
- Remotely lock & unlock the doors
- Remotely honk the horn
- Start & stop the engine
- Turn the lights on & off
Families or tech lovers will enjoy this last update. That’s because there are now 4 additional USB ports in the Pathfinder (a total of 6), so everyone can plug in their smartphone or tablet on long road trips.
