New For 2013
The 2013 Pathfinder is totally new and shares its platform with the 2013 Infiniti JX35.
The Nissan Pathfinder is all-new for 2013. The three-row SUV has abandoned its old-fashioned truck frame in favor of unibody construction, which helps save weight for improved fuel economy. That transition nets a well-deserved face lift, too, as graceful curves, chrome, and creased body panels take the place of the previous square, boxy design. The second-row seats have two neat tricks: First, EZ Flex allows the second-row 60/40-split seats to slide forward 5.5 inches so people can access the third row from either side of the car. Second, the Latch and Glide feature means a child seat can remain safely attached to a second-row seat while it is tilted for access to the third row. The interior is home to smarter and higher-quality materials. The options list includes new gadgets like an eight-inch touch screen, push-button start, remote engine starting, a dual-pane sunroof, dual-screen rear DVD players, and Nissan’s Around View monitor 360-degree parking cameras. The lone powertrain choice is a 3.5-liter V-6 and an updated continuously variable transmission. Front- and four-wheel-drive configurations are available, and the Pathfinder can tow up to 5000 pounds. Fuel economy is much improved compared with the old Pathfinder. The new SUV can get up to 26 mpg on the highway.
