Pathfinder was already out just out about two years and it was really one of the reasons you know.
I really fell in love with the idea of joining nissan and and designing trucks, and today i have ken with me, who is a senior design director of all of our trucks yeah. So super excited when i learned that we're doing the next pathfinder and of course the first thing i did was print out a bunch of old pictures of the the mid 80s. You know the first pathfinder i have those on my wall and we looked at. You know what made it special starting with the proportion it was tough, but yet advanced at the same time. So we looked at that and we started doing sketches and little clay models that tried to emulate that spirit, and that feeling you know that comes from you know. One thing is the nuance: nuances and attention to detail of surfacing. If you remember the original pathfinders, it's famous for the blister fenders, i think it gives it a unique look, and here we have the blister defenders but done in a new way using this. U shaped highlight so, as we were following in love with this.

I guess so it's now time to check out the long awaited new frontier let's go back to japan to hear from our favorite car designer alfonso albiza. Thank you eddie and thanks to everyone back in nashville when we started thinking about the next frontier. As you know, this was another one of these very great projects, very heavy burden, because, as everyone knows, the frontier has been around for a while and it's a great vehicle, but the world has changed dramatically and the role of this mid sized pickup truck has also Changed where much more it's about a lifestyle, this sense of adventurous spirit and a new redesigning and redefining of of the frontier was, was our opportunity so uh right off the bat we wanted to bring in this sense of this chiseled athletic go anywhere dna that our Frame vehicles have a lot like the pathfinder, but even more so, even though we wanted a sense of athleticism still, the hood is coming off.
So, remarkably, horizontal and again the face is so brutally vertical, but at the same time there are many intricate movements so, for instance like on pathfinder the offender flips around and locks into the two signatures again bringing this blend of technology and adventure and our new interlocking Grille, which is on titan and which is on the frontier, which represents the frame of the vehicle holding on to the engine and, of course, a little bit playful in our attitude about naming. So the frontier is embossed in the grill, also bringing in some cues of our wonderful titan. We raised the the rear bed significantly. We also created this interlocking uh rear combination, lamp that is chiseled into the the rear fender. All of these things were really part of making the the new frontier look not only super strong, but also athletic, and this sense of going anywhere and when you open the doors to the frontier you'll, see that also we took the sense of athletic gear or extreme Gear for rock climbing and things like that to another level where the yes, the elements themselves are quite rugged and a lot of grab handles and things like that. But on the other side that you have a full display, that's digital and this mixing of digital and rugged elements is very much connected to our customer who who lives that, mostly on the weekends, but they live and dream about that. Well, thank you for letting me taking you a quick walk around the pathfinder and the frontier.
