Nissan Pathfinder Overview

Nissan Pathfinder Accessories

Today's Nissan Pathfinder is both more civilized and more rugged than ever. Body-on-frame architecture provides a sturdy platform for the Pathfinder, helpful while towing a 6,000-pound trailer or twisting across a dry riverbed. The standard engine is a 4.0-liter V6 producing 270 horsepower and 291 pound-feet of torque. A 5.6-liter V8 is optional, making 310 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque. Both engines come with a five-speed automatic transmission as standard equipment.

The interior is roomy enough for tall people up front and a pair of kids in the standard third-row seat. The midsize SUV features more creature comforts and storage bins than ever, including two gloveboxes. Pathfinder buyers have a choice of three trim levels: base S, midgrade SE and more luxurious LE, each offered with rear- or four-wheel drive (with a low-range transfer case). A special SE Off Road 4x4 trim level adds features that off-road enthusiasts might want.

In editorial reviews, the Nissan Pathfinder has earned favorable commentary for its powerful engines, above-average abilities when taken off pavement and ample storage space. The main criticisms include tight rear seating for adults, inconsistent fit and finish, the V8's poor fuel economy and middling on-road handling.
