Like Mariah Carey’s ancestry, modern crossover vehicles have unusual roots. The award-winning American singer’s family tree is more varied than the flora of a rainforest understory. Her unique blend of nationalities includes African, Venezuelan and Irish. That’s more ingredients than Belorussian variety sausage. Who’s hungry for some lean, finely textured opossum?

The next-generation Nissan Pathfinder will be built on a car-based unibody setup, but the Japanese automaker wants to ensure that its off-road performance is still ruggedly good.

In full testing camouflage, Nissan took its 2013 Pathfinder Concept on a road trip to make sure it could endure over 1,500 miles of extreme cold weather testing. The upcoming SUV went from Colorado to Alaska and traveled through blizzards, snow, and mud.

But clearly Nissan has a new vision with their revamped Pathfinder, highlighting how family-friendly the vehicle is in its video, even showing off the ease of entering and exiting the vehicle with child seats installed. Of course not many people buying the three-row Pathfinder will go traveling through snow storms, but it’s nice to know that the Pathfinder hasn’t lost its true heritage when its rugged body-on-frame construction went out the window.

Watch the video of the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder Concept going cold weather testing after the break.

Taking a page out of Ford’s playbook, Nissan appears ready to follow suit in the move from SUVs to crossovers announcing that the 2013 Pathfinder will ride on a car-based unibody platform rather than a body-on-frame truck chassis. Over a year ago, Ford made a similar switch with its new Explorer.

As a concept Nissan hasn’t released many specifics about the car but has said it will be powered by a V6 with a CVT transmission and will continue to offer seating for seven. For more on the new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder concept check out AutoGuide’s first look video from the floor of the Detroit Auto Show below.

Along with plans to showcase its electric vehicle technology, including a new EV van, Nissan has announced it will reveal a new Pathfinder concept at the Detroit Auto Show in January.

In a release, the company says the concept vehicle will preview “the all-new look, style and attitude that Nissan will bring to the SUV segment.” Considering Nissan’s adventurous recent history with its designs, we expect something quite dramatic.

We’re most interested to see if Nissan will continue on with the Pathfinder as a true SUV, or if it will follow the likes of the Ford Explorer and transform into a crossover.

Expect the concept to be a close-to-production vehicle, with the 2013 Pathfinder expected to hit dealers in the Fall of 2012.
