Here it is the New 2022 US Nissan Pathfinder - Dave 🤗
“The all-new Nissan Pathfinder arrives in dealer showrooms throughout the U.S. and Canada this summer. The all-new 2022 Pathfinder offers a bold, rugged, completely redesigned exterior and a family adventure-ready interior. A standard 284-horsepower 3.5-liter Direct Injection V6 is matched with an all-new 9-speed transmission for smooth, direct response.”

Thank you DaveBerlin for highlighting these new fantastic cars.
OMG that new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder looks so incredibly inviting to me !
That V6 engine is something we can only dream about in Europe/UK ... unless we win the lottery of course.
I do envy those customers in the US ...
Having driven these type of (very powerful) SUVs in the US ... has left a lasting impression on my understanding of what a *real* car should feel like.
If only we were not forced to drive ... "Flintstone vehicles" on this side of the pond !
BTW the "All-new 9-speed transmission for smooth, direct response" is what I hope Nissan will
put in cars here as well, instead of CVT's they should know by now are giving potential Nissan customers reason for concern.

The new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder Adds New Features and Ditches the CVT Auto - Dave 👍
The biggest powertrain change is a nine-speed automatic from supplier ZF that replaces the continuously variable automatic (CVT) from before. Front-wheel drive is standard, with all-wheel drive optional on all trims, and AWD models get a set of driving modes meant for various terrains including snow, sand, and mud.

I don't know whether the new CVT would even work for such powerful engines!?
In the US nissan has little choice but to ditch the CVT will all those Class Action suites they could get involved in over there.
I wonder whether the 2022 Rogue Sport will still have that 2021 Rogue CVT or maybe even that new 9 gear auto transmission!?
Also, will the Rogue Sport look exactly like the new 2021 qashqai... Don't think so.

In the US Nissan are not ditching the CVT, if they ditch it they will have to close their Manufacturing Site JATCO in Japan and else where. Nissan have paid out big money in the US and raised Guarantee periods. As mentioned before and as what appears to be installed in the QQ J12 is a similiar or the same D-Step CVT is in the US Rogue - Dave 😏

Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) :
“Rogue’s Xtronic CVT features dynamic step shifting, wider gear ratio coverage, and an adaptive shift controller for a smooth connected drive. A new manual mode adds a spirited dimension by putting power at your fingertips. Enjoy greater control—and performance—as you shift through, gears using steering-wheel mounted paddle shifters.”

Well the US Rogue Sport looks will most likely be the same as the QQ, why not as the existing is a QQ Copy :
“The Nissan Rogue Sport is set to follow in the footsteps of its bigger sibling's redesign, with a new version likely to arrive for the 2022 model year. We've now gotten our first glimpse at the new Rogue Sport thanks to Nissan's European arm, which has shown the exterior and interior of the closely related Qashqai SUV.”

2022 Nissan Rogue Sport Previewed by Global Qashqai SUV : https://www.caranddriver.com/news/a3493 ... confirmed/

“Who makes Nissans new 9 speed transmission ? : – JATCO Ltd. Fuji, Shizuoka – JATCO Ltd has newly developed the JR913E, a 9-speed automatic transmission for RWD vehicles. Normally used in Larger Engines like the 3,5 L.
Nissan announced that the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder features a new nine-speed automatic transmission. This system is mated to a 284-hp 3.5-liter engine and a front-wheel-drive system. Four-wheel drive is available for those who want more traction or plan to take this SUV off-roading.”

Thanks DaveBerlin.
This information confirms the assumption that the 9 gear transmission is for the more powerfull suv s in the US.
The only remaining question is whether the new slimdown version of the CVT will prove far more reliable !?
I was not eager to prove prove it, one way or the other and went for the manual transmission.

Just take a look at the Seating and Size of this Beast - Dave 😉

The all-new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder features 10.6 cubic feet of interior volume more than the previous model and it maximizes every inch with family flexibility at top of mind. While keeping overall vehicle dimensions similar, thoughtful design changes – including increased track width and overall vehicle width, and a widened rear wheelhouse – allow for 164.6 cubic feet of total interior volume, up from 154.0 cubic feet on the previous model.

Pathfinder now offers easier cargo and family loading, and many other every-day utility benefits, including:
Room for up to eight passengers, a first on Pathfinder
Room for up to three car seats in the 2nd row, and two in the 3rd – a first on Pathfinder
Available captain's chairs, a first on Pathfinder – with a no-tools-needed removable console, allowing items up to 7 inches wide to pass between the seats
Pathfinder now offers easier cargo and family loading, and many other every-day utility benefits.
