Pricing Announced for 2012 Nissan Frontier, Pathfinder, and Xterra

Nissan announced pricing info on the Frontier, Xterra, and Pathfinder for the 2012 model year, revealing some moderate price increases compared to last year. The mid-size pickup truck and SUVs all see price increases for 2012, but receive new standard features, color choices, and packages. The prices listed below include Nissan’s $810 destination fee.

2012 Nissan Pathfinder

The 2012 Nissan Pathfinder starts at $29,380, including destination. The five trim levels for the Pathfinder carry over into 2012, and include S, SV, Silver Edition, LE, and LE V8. The Silver Edition, introduced last year, gets a power moonroof and DVD player as available options, while LE models equipped with the V-6 get navigation as standard – likely the reasoning behind that trim level’s $1660 price jump over last year’s model. Price increases across the rest of the Pathfinder range are smaller, but still significant. Prices jump $430 on Silver Edition models, while S and SV models see a bump of $740 compared to their counterparts from 2011. All S, SV, LE, and Silver Edition models still come equipped with a 266-hp 4.0-liter VQ-series V-6 engine mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The LE V8 trim, with its standard 310-hp 5.6-liter V-8 engine, raises its price by $610 for 2012. Brilliant Silver, a new exterior color, is added to the Pathfinder’s list of available paint colors for 2012.

Starting at $25,070, the 2012 Xterra raises its price from 2011 by $420 on all models except the sporty PRO-4X trim, which adds $630 to its price from 2011. The 4.0-liter V-6, which makes 261 hp in the Xterra, remains the only engine option, while both a five-speed automatic and six-speed manual transmission continue to be offered on all models. One New exterior color, Metallic Blue, is added, while Lava Red – last offered in the first half of model year 2011 – returns as a paint option for the Xterra in 2012.

2012 Nissan Frontier

Starting at $19,010, the 2012 Frontier carries on as one of the last offerings in the U.S. market’s thinning mid-size pickup truck segment, and adds a new Sport Appearance Package and three exterior colors. The Sport Appearance Package is priced at $1190 and is comprised of 18-inch alloy wheels, a Dark Hyper Silver-finished front grille, body-color front and rear bumpers, and unique graphics along the sides of the truck. The new available paint colors include Brilliant Silver, Metallic Blue, and Lava Red. Pricing across the entire Frontier range jumps by $460, an adjustment partially explained by the addition of Nissan’s Active Brake Limited Slip (ALBS) and Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC) as standard equipment on all Frontier models. A 152-hp 2.5-liter I-4 and 261-hp 4.0-liter V-6 remain as the Frontier’s two engine options. In true pickup truck fashion, various combinations of trim, cab configuration, drivetrain, and wheelbase length are available.
