Exterior Features
The redesigned 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is available with front- or 4-wheel drive (2WD or 4WD) in S, SV, SL, and Platinum trim levels. An Easy Fill Tire Alert system that emits a sound when the tires are inflated to their proper pressure is standard, along with 18-inch aluminum wheels and dark-tinted rear privacy glass.

Interior Features
The 2013 Pathfinder S includes a new Advanced Drive Assist Display. Additionally, the S trim level is equipped with cloth seats, push-button ignition, triple-zone automatic climate control, tilt/telescoping steering wheel, and a 6-speaker audio system with a CD changer and an auxiliary audio input jack.

The Pathfinder also features an EZ Flex seating system with a Latch and Glide function that provides simple access to the third-row seat even with a child seat installed in the right second-row seating position. The Pathfinder's second-row seats slide forward and backward up to 5.5 inches, and the third-row seatbacks recline.

The Pathfinder provides 16 cubic feet of cargo space behind the third-row seat; up to 47.8 cubic feet behind the second-row seat, and 79.8 cubic feet behind the front seats.

Optional Features
The Pathfinder SV adds a power driver's seat, Bluetooth connectivity, Nissan Intelligent Key keyless access, rear sonar sensing system, reversing camera, upgraded cabin trim, upgraded sound system, and more. The SL is equipped with leather, heated front and rear seats, heated side mirrors, remote engine starting, power liftgate, and a Homelink universal remote. The Platinum trim comes with 20-inch alloy wheels, ventilated front seats, power-adjustable heated steering wheel, navigation, AroundView Monitor, trailering equipment, and a 13-speaker Bose premium sound system with Bluetooth music streaming.

Additionally, the new Pathfinder can be equipped with a triple-zone rear-seat DVD entertainment system and a panoramic sunroof. Dealers can also provide a \"hatch tent\" designed to wrap around the Pathfinder's liftgate.

Under the Hood
Every 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is equipped with a 260-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine, next-generation Xtronic continuously variable transmission (CVT), and front-wheel drive or an intuitive All Mode 4WD system.

Fuel Economy
As this overview is written, the EPA has not officially estimated the 2013 Pathfinder's fuel economy. Nissan says the Pathfinder will achieve the following numbers:

  • Pathfinder FWD: 20/26/TBD mpg (city/highway/combined)
  • Pathfinder 4WD: 19/25/TBD mpg

Safety
The new 2013 Pathfinder is equipped with 6 air bags, including side curtain air bags that protect occupants in all three rows of seats. Additionally, a traction and stability control system is standard, along with 4-wheel ventilated disc anti-lock brakes with brake assist.

Neither the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) nor the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) has rated the crashworthiness of the 2013 Pathfinder as this overview is written.
