2010 Nissan Pathfinder S SUV

2010 Nissan Pathfinder Review

(3 Stars)  Long in tooth but still solid

Reviewed by Automobile Magazine on

Overview
Since its introduction in 1986 as a body on frame two door, the Nissan Pathfinder has come a long way. It has grown larger over the years. Late into its first generation it added a second set of doors and switched to a more modern unibody construction. In its second generation, it dropped the two door option all together. Now into its 3rd production generation with a fourth on the way. It is in some ways a jack of all trades and master of nothing. Able to appeal to a more general crowd than most other SUV's. It retains much of its off road prowess while appealing to those who will never get mud on the fenders as well. It's grown large enough now to fit a 3rd row of seats. Also of note is the unusual process of going back to a more truck like body on frame, though it's likely the next generation will reverse that trend yet again and return to a unibody construction.

The current Pathfinder is powered by one of two engine choices: a 4.0 liter V6 good for 270 HP and a monster 5.6 liter V-8 making 310 Hp and a stump pulling 380 Ft. – Lbs. of torque.
