2018 Nissan Pathfinder Review

Where to next? With the Nissan Pathfinder’s power towing capability and confidence-inspiring suspension your next journey just got a lot more exciting. Choose from four models: S SV SL and the top-of-the-line Platinum . All Pathfinders come equipped for adventure with standard features like NissanConnect+ three-zone climate control steel roof-rack rails and a 284-horsepower V-6. And get ready to go farther because Pathfinder gets up to 27 miles per gallon on the highway. And with available intelligent four-wheel-drive getting snowed in is no longer an option. The Pathfinder’s three rows of seats give you room for seven comfortable passengers—and a puppy! And you’ll never leave ’em behind with standard Rear Door Alert reminding you to check the back seats before you leave . Choose from a variety of colors options and Genuine Nissan Accessories and build a Pathfinder that’s all yours. So hit the road—or whatever you want to call a road—in a Nissan Pathfinder.
The Nissan Pathfinder maximizes your connectivity. Keep your hands on the wheel with Bluetooth. Stream audio; make and take calls; it’s standard equipment on every Pathfinder. Get where you’re going and stay connected on the way with NissanConnect with available Navigation Turn-by-turn directions SiriusXM Satellite Radio SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link and more come to life on an eight-inch color touchscreen. And available NissanConnect Services powered by SiriusXM turns your phone into a remote control for your Pathfinder. Unlock doors start the engine monitor your Pathfinder’s health and more.
The Nissan Pathfinder is so safe it earned a five-star safety rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Every Pathfinder comes with driver-assist features like Automatic Emergency Braking and traction control. Additional features like Blind Spot Warning and Rear Cross-Traffic Alert are available too. The Tire Pressure Monitoring System doesn’t just tell you when your tires are low—its standard Easy-Fill Tire Alert feature tells you when you’ve filled them properly too. No more fiddling around with air-pressure gauges! The Nissan Pathfinder. Because safety makes sense.
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 available intelligent four-wheel drive. Choose two-wheel drive for efficiency four-wheel-drive when the going gets tough or Auto for 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.
