20 City / 26 Highway
, Automotive Editor -

2013 was a big year for the Nissan Pathfinder. The rugged body-on-frame, off-road warrior was replaced by a comfortable, fuel-efficient crossover designed for around-town errands and runs to soccer practice.

The latest Pathfinder has been a hit. In its new, softened form, the seven-passenger Pathfinder is one of the most competent models in a heavily competitive segment. And with an EPA rating of 26 mpg highway, it's also one of the most fuel efficient.

What's New for 2014

After its recent redesign, there are few changes. Among them is a new technology package that bundles goodies such as a Bose premium sound system, navigation and an 8-inch touchscreen.

Choosing Your Nissan Pathfinder

All Pathfinders come with a 250-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 mated to a continuously variable transmission (CVT). It returns 20 mpg city and 26 mpg highway with standard front-wheel drive, and 19 mpg city and 25 mpg highway with optional four-wheel drive.

Seven-passenger seating is also standard in a lineup that includes four trim levels:


The entry-level S comes with basic amenities like tri-zone automatic climate control and a flexible "Latch and Glide" seating system. Don't look for access to many options or packages, though, at this sub-$30,000 price point.


The SV adds key features like roof rails, a power-adjustable driver's seat, a rearview camera and a Bluetooth phone system. Like the S, though, it can't be ordered with many amenities most families consider essential.


An SL will be the obvious choice for many buyers. Standard equipment includes a power liftgate, leather upholstery and a remote engine start system. More importantly, this trim level offers optional Premium and Tech packages that include features like a dual-panorama moonroof, Bose audio systems, hard drive navigation and satellite radio.


The near-luxury Platinum adds 20-inch aluminum wheels, a navigation system, an around-view monitor and climate-controlled front seats as standard. Options are relatively few, and include the Premium package with a dual-panorama moonroof and a tri-zone entertainment system.

CarsDirect Tip

We'd skip the S and SV models, and head straight for a Pathfinder SL. For buyers who want a premium experience without the ostentation of a premium brand, the Platinum is an ideal choice.
