Nissan completely reinvented its popular Nissan Pathfinder SUV to make it easier to drive, more efficient, and better looking. If you are in the market for a new crossover SUV, make sure you are well acquainted with the features that make the new Nissan Pathfinder a best-in-class pick.
New, Smaller Chassis
To reduce the weight of the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder, Nissan swapped out the truck chassis upon which the last Pathfinder was built in favor of a smaller chassis. This new chassis weighs less and is proportioned more like a car, which gives the Nissan Pathfinder better fuel economy and increased handling prowess.
Plentiful Passenger and Cargo Space
The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is spacious enough to fit seven passengers nicely, and has 79.8 cubic feet of cargo space when you fold all three rows of seats forward. Front headroom and legroom are best in class, while the third row of seats reclines to give you comfort you can’t get in any other full-size crossover SUV.
Fuel-Efficient V6 Engine
The 3.5-liter V6 that comes with the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder puts out 260 horsepower and—thanks in part to the efficient design of Nissan’s state-of-the-art continuously variable transmission (CVT)—delivers 20/26 mpg city/highway fuel economy and 5,000 pounds of maximum towing capability.
Optional All-Wheel Drive
Enhance the traction and off-road drivability of your Nissan Pathfinder by equipping it with Nissan’s advanced all-wheel drive technology. This system comes with an all-mode knob that allows you to select between 2WD, 4WD, and auto modes as you drive so that you can get your ideal balance of fuel efficiency and traction.
