Nissan debuts the adventure-focused 2023 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek with aggressive styling and off-road-tuned suspension
The Pathfinder has been Nissan’s bestselling SUV in the US, and it’s not surprising why. Its rugged looks, robust capability, and impressive performance have made it a favorite with midsize SUV buyers nationwide. Last year, Nissan introduced the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder, wholly redesigned from bumper to bumper. Now, a year later, it has added the new, bolder, off-road-inspired variant called the 2023 Pathfinder Rock Creek to its lineup here in the USA, and we at Glendale Nissan in Glendale Heights, IL, can’t wait to share more details about it with you.

The rugged new 2023 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition
Designed for customers looking for a higher level of fun and adventure, the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek was unveiled recently at the New York International Auto Show.
At the launch event, Nissan U.S. Marketing and Sales Senior VP Michael Colleran said that the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder was all about a “return to rugged” and “the 2023 Nissan Pathfinder Rock Creek takes that spirit even further.” And indeed, it does.
Offered as a four-wheel drive (4WD) option only, takes the “return to rugged” spirit of the Pathfinder lineup to a whole new level of capability with more power, an off-road-tuned suspension, increased ground clearance, and a new set of all-terrain tires.
