2017 Nissan Pathfinder Review

Overview
Where to next? The destinations are endless and the Nissan Pathfinder is your base camp. With its increased power greater towing capability and new confidence-inspiring suspension your next journey just got a lot more exciting. Choose from four models: the S SV SL and the top of the line Platinum. All four come equipped for adventure with standard features like NissanConnect three-zone climate control a steel roof rack and a 284-horsepower V-6. With three rows of seats the Pathfinder has room for seven comfortable passengers—and a puppy! Opt for the Tri-Zone Entertainment system and the kids can watch cartoons while the grown-ups browse Facebook. And get ready to go farther because Pathfinder gets 27 miles per gallon on the highway. And with All-Mode 4x4-i intuitive four-wheel-drive getting snowed in is no longer an excuse. Bring confidence along for the ride—Nissan’s Intelligent Safety Shield Technologies are like having a super-aware co-pilot. Available in a wide range of color and interior trim combinations you can build a Pathfinder to compliment any style. So hit the road—or what they call a road—in a Nissan Pathfinder.
Technology
Destinations are great but who says getting there can’t be just as fun? The Nissan Pathfinder offers best-in-class passenger room as well as a gliding second row seat that makes third-row access easier. And the third-row seat reclines—a class exclusive. Let in the sky. The available Dual Panoramic Moonroof stretches over all 3 rows of seats. An available Tri-Zone Entertainment System means you can bring along your movies video games and more. It even has wireless headphones so everyone stays happy on the road. What happens when you get there is up to you.
Safety
Your Nissan Pathfinder is always looking for trouble with standard monitoring features like Rear Cross-Traffic Alert and Blind-Spot Warning. Add Forward Emergency Braking and you’re protected by the complete Nissan Intelligent Safety Shield. And if the worst happens Nissan’s Advanced Air Bag System and Zone Body construction with front and rear crumple zones led the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration to give the Pathfinder a 5-star rating. Nissan Pathfinder. Go ahead and bring confidence along for the ride.
Performance
With the Nissan Pathfinder muscle comes standard—its V-6 makes 284 horsepower and can tow a class-leading 6 000 pounds. Heading for rough terrain? Not a problem with Nissan’s All-Mode 4x4-i intuitive four-wheel drive. Select two-wheel drive four-wheel-drive or Auto for unique traction when you need it. Pathfinder’s Xtronic Continuously Variable Transmission doesn’t have any gears. That means more efficiency and smoother handling—and when you feel the need for speed well all you have to do is push the pedal to the … plushly carpeted metal.
