Nissan Pathfinder Overview

Drivetrain and Capacity

The Nissan Pathfinder derives efficiency through an Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission. You can choose your model in Front-Wheel Drive or All-Mode 4X4-intuitive Four-Wheel Drive. If you want to take on a tough adventure, then we recommend the 4X4 setup. Going over rough terrain also calls for the optional Hill Descent Control, as it provides a smooth drive.

Furthermore, the Pathfinder has a maximum towing capacity of 6,000 pounds. The SV trim and higher have an optional Trailer Tow Package with a tow hitch receiver and a 7-pin wiring harness. Maximum towing demands the Class III Tow Package with a Trailer Tow Harness, Tow Hitch Receiver, and a Tow Hitch Finisher. However, even without off-roading customization, the Pathfinder is still more than capable of handling your daily commute.

Engine and Efficiency

Power is a top priority, which is why the Pathfinder has a 3.5L DOHC V6 engine. This engine delivers a stunning 284 hp and 259 lb-ft of torque. The engine is powered by a Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System and a multi-point direct-injection system. There is also a Direct Ignition system with iridium-tipped spark plugs and an electronic drive-by-wire throttle. These technologies work together to create incredible efficiency. Front-wheel drive models have an EPA-estimated 27 mpg in the city and 20 mpg on the highway. Choose the 4X4 model, and you’ll enjoy an EPA-estimated 26 mpg in the city and 19 mpg on the highway.

Suspension and Handling

Driving the Pathfinder is a treat because of its suspension and handling. Expect models to have front and rear stabilizing bars and Dual Flow Path shock absorbers for stabilization over bumpy roads. The front of the vehicle includes independent struts, while the rear has an independent multi-link system. Steering is handled with an electronic hydraulic power assisted and speed sensitive system. Additionally, anti-lock brakes, electronic brake force distribution, and brake assist work together for safety. The brake systems kick in when you need them the most, but they also contribute to excellent handling.
