Continuing with its Sports Adventure programme for 2008 Nissan will launch two special editions of the Pathfinder and Navara to be known as ‘Mammoth’. The name is inspired from the well known mountain resort located in central California and both vehicles are competitively priced at £27995 (OTR) for the Pathfinder and £16995 (OTR +VAT) for the Navara.

Mammoth is California’s favourite mountain holiday resort so, as you would expect, this special edition Pathfinder has been designed and equipped to handle any family adventures. Peaceful journeys are only obtained if the rear passengers are kept amused, hence the fitment of a roof mounted rear DVD player complete with a 10.2 inch drop down screen and wireless headphones. But not just a standard DVD player, this one can be removed from the docking station and used as a portable unit away from the vehicle.

With the kids tuned into their favourite movie, headphones on, the rest of the passengers can enjoy the sound quality emitted from the specially tuned BOSE stereo system with its 10 high performance speakers and digital amplifier, unique to the Pathfinder Mammoth.

To help with long excursions the vehicle is also loaded with additional equipment; DVD birdview satellite navigation, colour reversing camera, Bluetooth® mobile phone connectivity, cruise control, auto headlamps, rain sensing wipers, roof rails, side steps, rear privacy glass, xenon headlamps, front fog lights, leather upholstery with heated front seats and 17 inch alloy wheels.

Safety features are not forgotten with Nissan’s ALL MODE 4×4 system which includes a low ratio gearbox, downhill drive support (auto only) plus Electronic Stability Program. Should an impact occur then protection is in place with driver, passenger, front side and curtain airbags plus active front headrests to help reduce the risk of whiplash.

The Pathfinder Mammoth comes in a choice of four colours: Flint Grey, Emotion Red, Metallic Black and Arctic White and is supplied with special California Sports Adventure floor mats as well as a Mammoth Sports Adventure rear badge.

To complement this special vehicle Nissan is also providing an accessory package to include a fixed towbar with single electrics and a towbar mounted bike rack that holds two bikes, designed to simply fix onto each other without the need for any special tools. Priced at £500 fitted.

Navara Mammoth comes in double cab form and is available with 6 speed manual transmission. The equipment list includes dual zone climate control air conditioning, CD auto changer, cruise control, auto headlights, rain sensing wipers, C-Channel load anchorage system, driver and passenger airbags, 17inch alloy wheels, roof rails and front fog lamps. It also gets the California Sports Adventure floor mats and a rear badge similar to the Pathfinder.

The vehicle comes in a choice of four colours: Metallic Black, Storm Grey, Emotion Red and Arctic White.

Pathfinder and Navara Mammoths will be available in Nissan dealerships from mid December onwards.
