The Nissan Pathfinder is a 7-seat SUV, larger than the Murano and built for more rugged use. It features a truck-type body-on-frame construction and offers either a V-6 or a V-8 engine, plus many luxury features. Its traditional competitors are the Toyota 4Runner, GMC Terrain, and the Mazda CX-9.

The 2010 Nissan Pathfinder is available in four trim levels. The entry-level Pathfinder S features 16-inch wheels, air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, 6-speaker sound system, roof rails, and a receiver hitch for towing. The Pathfinder SE features 17-inch wheels and adds running boards and fog lights. The SE's power features include dual-zone automatic climate control, adjustable driver's seat and pedals, and rear air conditioning controls. The premium Pathfinder LE upgrades to 18-inch wheels, and adds automatic headlights, sunroof, leather upholstery with heated front seats, and many other enhancements-some of which are available as options on the SE trim. The Pathfinder LE V8 is the LE trim with a V-8 engine and a hard-drive-based navigation system.

The 2010 Nissan Pathfinder features a total of 79 cubic feet of storage space with the second- and third-row seats folded flat, according to Nissan, and can tow 6000 pounds with a V-6 engine and 7000 pounds with a V-8. Maximum payload is just over 1000 pounds.

Standard on all 2010 Nissan Pathfinder trims but the LE V8 is a 266-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 engine with a 5-speed automatic transmission and rear- or 4-wheel drive (2WD or 4WD). With 2WD it delivers 15 mpg in the city and 22 mpg on the highway, according to the EPA. The LE V8 features a 310-horsepower, 5.6-liter V-8 engine with a 5-speed automatic transmission and standard 4WD. It delivers 13 mpg in the city and 18 mpg on the highway.

Standard safety features on the 2010 Nissan Pathfinder include anti-lock disc brakes with brake assist, stability control, traction control, active front head restraints, front side air bags, and side curtain air bags.

Starting MSRPs for the 2010 Nissan Pathfinder ranged from $27,540 to $42,300.
