Whether you prefer to call the 2013 Pathfinder a crossover or SUV, we can all agree that it’s a great vehicle. Check out what’s new.
Nissan Pathfinder Trims and Feature Highlights
The Nissan Pathfinder is a seven passenger midsize SUV that’s fully redesigned for 2013. On first glance you’ll notice that the new body has been lowered a bit, so that the newly curvaceous lines ride with a 6.5 inch ground clearance. And though Nissan has bulked Pathfinder up by adding two inches in length and 4.4 inches in width than the previous generation, it weighs about 500 pounds less- all the better for fattening MPGs.
Inside, Pathfinder boasts almost 80 cubic feet of cargo space to go along with three comfortable rows for passengers. And Nissan got smart by deciding to add premium materials throughout the cabin, creating a downright upscale feel.
The 2013 Pathfinder is available in six trim levels: S, SV, SL, SL Premium, Platinum, and Platinum Premium. Standard features include a 260 horsepower V6, 26 highway MPG (25 with all-wheel drive), 18 inch alloy wheels, tri-zone climate control, and cloth seats. Higher trims add typical niceties like navigation, a rearview camera or 360 degree-view camera, rear seat DVD entertainment, a panoramic sunroof, and heated/cooling leather seats.
The Nissan Pathfinder starts at $28,270.
