All members of the family will find the NissanConnect electronics interface easy to use, from your youngest children to the grandparents. Meanwhile, the high-quality materials mean that as soon as you pick up your Pathfinder from Ray Brandt Nissan, everyone will be comfortable.
Nissan Pathfinder Interior and Versatility
With a family-friendly crossover SUV like the Pathfinder, versatility is one of the most important factors. You can slide the 2nd-row seats forward and back, and they even recline for added comfort. Best of all, you can slide them forward without removing your child’s car seat. The 3rd row will even fit tall adults thanks to its spacious headroom, although it is still ideal for children on long trips. Since you can fold down the 60/40 2nd-row and 50/50 3rd-row seats, there are limitless ways to combine passenger and cargo space. Fold both rear rows flat to take advantage of 79.6 cubic feet. Factor in the Pathfinder’s ability to tow 5,000 pounds, and you have the perfect SUV for your next road trip or moving your child to college.
Nissan Pathfinder Engine, Capability, and MPG
There is only one engine available in the Pathfinder, but the 3.5-liter V6 generates enough power while maintaining fuel efficiency to satisfy everyone. It will give you 240 pound-feet for torque and 260 horsepower and comes with a CVT. You can stick to the standard front-wheel drive or upgrade to a 4-wheel drive system that features hill-descent control. This even gives you the ability to lock the power distribution at a 50/50 front to rear ratio to handle snow or dirt roads. Depending on the drivetrain, the Pathfinder gives you a respectable 22 or 23 mpg* combined, with the Platinum trim losing 1 mile per gallon.
