About Nissan Pathfinder
This Darwinian adage holds true for birds, businesses, and, well, family SUVs. As a result, the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder conforms to market demands by departing from its trucklike, off-road-ready beginnings to become a more comfortable, car-based, family-friendly crossover SUV.
The previous Pathfinder was a big, tough truck that was good for off-roading and towing. However, its drawbacks included limited quarters for second and third-row passengers, a truck-like driving style, and poor fuel economy. Nissan reasoned that most people would prefer a comfortable cabin and decent fuel economy over infrequently used extreme capabilities on a daily basis.
As a result, the revised 2013 Pathfinder shares a unibody structure with the similarly new Infiniti JX crossover. It had a 3.5-liter V6 engine with 260 horsepower and a continuously variable gearbox (CVT). The Pathfinder is 500 pounds lighter than the car it replaces, which contributes to fuel efficiency estimates of 20 mpg city/26 mpg highway/22 combined, making it one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in a class that includes the Ford Explorer and Honda Pilot.
Yes, the new Pathfinder is lighter and more economical than its predecessor, but it can still tow up to 5,000 pounds. That’s a big amount for a midsize, seven-passenger crossover whose duties are likely to be limited to towing a pair of jet skis to the lake and transporting the kids to sports and dance sessions. The Pathfinder, like the Infiniti JX, has a sliding second-row seat that can tilt and fold forward even when a child seat is installed, allowing access to the adult-friendly third row much easier.
The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder has a lot going for it, including smooth performance, great fuel efficiency figures, and a comfortable interior. Even though the Pathfinder is now better positioned to compete in the lucrative seven-passenger SUV sector, it still confronts some stiff competition. Our top recommendations in the segment continue to be the Chevrolet Traverse, Ford Flex, and Mazda CX-9, all of which are more spacious than the Nissan. However, in comparison to the best-selling Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot, and Toyota Highlander, the Pathfinder has evolved into a highly desirable option.
