The beginning price of the 2023 Pathfinder Rock Creek model is estimated to be about $40,000 this year, placing it at the higher end of the Pathfinder's hierarchy. Its mission statement is simple and true: "Taking off-road off the charts." The first pictures showing up in any 2023 Nissan Pathfinder® Rock Creek® review show a tan-shade model with a blacked out roof and sturdy roof rails all around the top of the model. It has a silver-look front bumper and blacked out grille with three upper silver slots to add definition to the look. At Lokey Nissan in Clearwater Florida, we expect this one to make a big splash.
The standard wheels for the Rock Creek are black machine-finished aluminum alloy 18-inch wheels. Of course, you'll get all-terrain tires for a robust finish. In release pictures, you'll also notice thick and strong roof rails with larger bars on top to take care of your larger on-SUV cargo. You won't find the grille of the Rock Creek on any other Pathfinder in Clearwater Florida. It's exclusive to just the Pathfinder Rock Creek. Be sure to ask Lokey Nissan associates to give you an alert as soon as the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder® Rock Creek first full pics come out. We'll have more pictures uploaded in the months to come.
There has been a sharp focus on the mechanical design of the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder® Rock Creek edition, and that's very understandable. Most people aren't just going to buy this model for the interior. However, if you had to judge the Pathfinder Rock Creek just on its interior, it would pass the test with flying colors. To offset the rugged exterior, there is a cozy interior with exclusive Rock Creek upholstery and stamps. You'll find "Rock Creek" on both the seats and the center console. It's lit up like the 4th of July in blazing orange letters. In addition to the badging, you'll get high-contrast interior stitching on strategic places like the steering wheel and seats. The rest of the interior remains a mystery right now in every 2023 Nissan Pathfinder® Rock Creek® review, but we'll keep you updated when new info about the interior finally reaches the masses.
The 9-speed transmission is a carryover from last year and suits the talents of the Rock Creek just fine, but there's also an all-new Nissan off-road tuned suspension system. We all know that Nissan has a huge love for motorsports, so you can bet there will be a majorly exciting handling experience on the horizon for people who choose this model.
It's all about torque on the Pathfinder Rock Creek. This model is picking up a powertrain that delivers 295 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque, so dig in those wheels and enjoy. You'll be taking off a whole lot faster than you will in a regular Pathfinder. Lokey Nissan always recommends a test drive of any model before you buy it. Numbers lie, but performance doesn't. When you test drive this one at our dealership, you'll quickly see that the performance lives up to the promising engine specs.
Nissan has always been a brand that looks after its customers. It never forgets to add an award-winning safety system on its SUVs. The new Pathfinder Rock Creek edition promises to carry through on its promise of security, too. And when you've got rock crawling and other off-roading adventures to look forward to, your driver-assist features have to live up to the standards of the mechanical system itself. Expect to see automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection for when you're driving through city areas, but for off-roading, we'd also expect Nissan to add features like off-road performance pages and extra underbody protection for your vehicle. And to protect you, you'll get off-road camera systems that are geared to keep you in the loop about your surroundings. The wildernesses of America can be punishing and unforgiving, but as long as you've got Nissan's patented brand of safety along for the ride, you'll always come out safe.
