The front end of the next Nissan Pathfinder

The next Nissan Pathfinder teased in two short videos

The next generation Nissan Pathfinder is scheduled to make its grand debut next week at the 2012 North American International Auto Show in Detroit and tonight, the Japanese automaker issued two short (very short) videos giving us our best look yet of the redesigned front and rear end of the new Pathfinder.

Nissan first addressed the next generation of the popular SUV a few weeks ago with a shadowy image of the new Pathfinder from the side which showed very little shy of the windshield line and the top line of the doors. This time, Nissan has offered two videos – one being 7 seconds and the other 11 seconds – showing us the front and rear end of the upcoming Pathfinder with some artsy camera and lighting work.

The first video, lasting just seven seconds, starts off with complete darkness until a light pans from left to right – giving us a glimpse of the new front end of the next Pathfinder as the light illuminates the various parts of the front end. Around 3.5 seconds we get our best look at the new front end, showing the straight line running across the front end, forming the top line for the grille and headlights. While this is just a quick look, the front end looks to be a refreshing improvement from what is currently offered with headlights that extend in towards the center more than the current model and an angular “scowl” created across the front end giving the new Pathfinder a more aggressive look.

The second new Nissan Pathfinder teaser video is 11 seconds long and it offers a look at the rear end of the new SUV from a low camera angle. Like in the first video, this back end shot begins with darkness and the light pans from side to side; moving across the vehicle like the internal workings of a photocopier. As the light moves across the back of the Pathfinder, we see what looks to be a molded spoiler along the top of the vehicle with large, chrome laden taillights sitting in the middle of the rear gate.
