http://www.autobytel.com/nissan/pathf... Almost 30 years ago Nissan launched the Pathfinder which started the SUV revolution. Back then they had a 2-door model then a 4-door model eventually came about. In many ways the 2nd generation Pathfinder was ahead of its time because of the unibody construction. Now fast forward to 2013 and we have an all new 4th generation model seen here. This crossover SUV is all about capability, roominess, comfort, and fuel economy. The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder has a base price of $28,270.
The Pathfinder is best in class when it comes to a couple of different areas. The towing capacity is 5,000 lbs. and what Nissan is trying to prove is that this 4th generation is more able than the previous model. Another area is off-road potential and for an additional $1600 on any trim level you can opt for Nissan's Intelligent 4WD System. This system can detect slip and split power evenly between front and rear wheels. Another thing that Nissan wants you to know is just how fuel efficient the 2013 Pathfinder is. Gas mileage ratings are best in class at 20 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway.
The Infiniti JX is the sister car to this new Pathfinder and Nissan borrowed a couple of systems from this more luxurious crossover SUV. The latch and glide system is part of the easy flex seating and allows you for easier access to the 3rd row of seats. The Pathfinder is able to seat up to 7 passengers.
The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is available in 4 trim levels that include: Base S, SV, SL, and top of the line Platinum. If you want things like heated front and rear seats you have to step up to the SL trim level minimum. If you opt for the Platinum you get heated and cooled seats, heated steering wheel, and navigation with an 8-inch screen.
Under the hood of the Nissan Pathfinder is the tired and trued VQ engine. This 3.5 liter V-6 motor produces 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft. of torque. A CVT transmission and 500 lb. weight reduction help the fuel economy figures.
