The production Nissan Pathfinder has surfaced on the Net via Nissan’s own Facebook page, and it appears identical to the concept shown at this year’s Detroit show. Not too much of a surprise, since there wasn’t anything outrageous about the “concept” which looked as production ready as they come.

What we know now is that the 2013 Pathfinder is a seven-seater SUV with unibody construction in place of the old one’s body-on-frame layout. The Pathfinder shares a platform with the Infiniti JX SUV, which is also a seven-seater. The premium badged one is powered by a 3.5L V6 engine coupled to a CVT, so the Pathfinder may see the same combo. Full details when it’s officially revealed.
