Nissan has already given us a darkened preview of the next Pathfinder's profile, but tonight the automaker has released two exceptionally brief videos of its latest 'ute.

The Pathfinder concept is set to debut at next week's Detroit Auto Show, and all Nissan is saying is that the seven-seat concept will still be able to haul through the muck with four-wheel drive when it goes on sale this fall.

Beyond that, we're left with the two videos after the break, the first showing the Pathfinder's redesigned face and the second giving us a glimpse of its rear. Neither designs are particularly revolutionary, but they're certainly more handsome than what's currently on offer. Here's hoping it delivers when the wraps come off on January 9th.

      finally someone does a grille treatment right...that's a really good adaptation of the traditional Nissan truck grille...looks sharp

      Got to go with everyone else, I also thought it looked great and I am sure most of us agree Nissan can use some frsh designs.

      Wow, um, that actually looks pretty damn good. For Nissan, with grilles that seem like they come from some Sci-Fi movie or Lovecraft novel, that's saying a lot.

      Ok, I admit it. That looks incredibly gorgeous.

      Looks better..... But I hope they don't make it all flashy and such. The pathfinder was always a rugged suv. One of the main reasons I still love the 4runner stuck to its roots.

        No, you still love the 4Runner because you're a Toyota fanboy...

        By the way, it stuck to its roots? Hey, where's the optional V8? Oh yeah, it doesn't have it anymore.

          stuck to its roots by still being a body of frame SUV with an actual-fulll 4WD system instead of a crossover and their AWD/not-full 4wd systems.....why is everyone so quick to jump to Toyota fanboy when they mention liking a toyota model????

          had 3rd gen t4r, loved it. had 4th gen t4r, loved it but with certain apprehension cuz the famed toyota quality was already going downhill by the 4th gen t4r. was still looking forward to the 5th gen and bam! what a disappointment! to name a few cost-saving features of the 5th gen (current model) t4r - fixed antenna(probably toyota dug up its part bin that's 20 years old. 4th gen had glass-embedded antenna, as modern vehicle should), elimination of center differential - 4th gen owners used to be able to select either 2wd or 4wd and they could set it at 4wd permanently. toyota put the center differential since 1999 (if memory serves right) 12 years later, they took it out (except in the limtied model), Rear LED lights gone in the 5th gen. etc... i'm mildly hopeful that the refreshed 5th gen might bring back some of the features that they took out - especially the missing center differential.

      Hey Nissan, Lexus called they want their design back. This the front end of a RX with a Nissan badge glued on.

        That doesn't look NOT A DAMN THING like a Lexus RX. Someone needs to a cataracts operation.

        Lexus RX front has the same headlight assembly as the outgoing Camry... the Lexus is more curvy...the Nissan is flat on the front. Really, all they share in common is a sideways quadrilateral shape.
