Choosing Your Nissan Pathfinder

Having been on sale for over 30 years, Nissan’s Pathfinder is wel -known as a go-anywhere SUV. It’s less known as a luxury vehicle, which is why improvements for the 2019 model year focus on the driving experience and the integration of new technology.

Every Pathfinder is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 gas engine paired to a continuously variable transmission, outputting 284 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque. Each of its four trim levels can be acquired with either two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive, which is $1,690 more across the lineup. With 2WD, the Pathfinder gets an EPA-estimated 20 miles per gallon city, 27 mpg highway, and 23 combined. Specifying Nissan's Intelligent 4WD system (I-4x4) reduces fuel economy to 19/26/22 mpg (city/highway/combined). The I-4x4 system can be set to 2WD, Auto, or 4WD lock modes, according to the driver’s preference. It also means the Pathfinder can tow up to 6,000 pounds, while hill descent control is a standard feature on every 4WD variant.

The Pathfinder’s interior centers on an eight-inch touchscreen infotainment monitor, with voice recognition through an HD microphone. Standard safety features include automatic emergency braking and Nissan’s unique Rear Door Alert system, reminding the driver about any objects left on the rear seats.


The base Pathfinder S retails for $32,205 (all prices include the $975 destination charge) with 2WD. Driver aids include a push-button start coupled with remote keyless entry, rearview monitor with rear sonar, and Nissan’s Advanced Drive-Assist Display. There’s tri-zone automatic temperature control throughout the cabin, with six USB ports and a six-speaker audio system with HD radio and a CD player. No options packages are available on S models. Factory-installed accessories include external ground lighting ($390), roof rail crossbars ($365), and four splash guards ($185).


Upgrading to a Pathfinder SV costs $35,245 with 2WD. It brings a number of crucial safety improvements, including blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, and fog lights. Also standard are an auto-dimming rearview mirror, an eight-way power driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift lever, and remote start. SV buyers are able to add a $400 All Weather Package, which heats the front seats, steering wheel, and power outside mirrors. The $850 Tech Package brings navigation with three years of complimentary SiriusXM Traffic, NissanConnect Services, and a tow hitch receiver.


Retailing at $38,895 with 2WD, the Pathfinder SL brings leather seats, heated first and second row seats, a heated steering wheel, and a four-way power front passenger seat. This is also the first Pathfinder to gain a motion-activated tailgate as standard, opening when the keyholder waves a foot under the liftgate, and a surround-view camera system. The only package available is the $2,650 Premium Package. For this substantial sum, buyers receive upgraded 20-inch aluminum-alloy wheels shod with all-season tires, a tow hitch receiver, a dual panel panoramic moonroof, and a 13-speaker Bose audio system.


There’s a substantial price premium for the Platinum trim, with 2WD models retailing for $43,545. However, the features from the SL Premium Package are all fitted as standard, and the cabin gains wood grain finishes. The driver’s seat receives 10-way adjustment and two-way power lumbar support, and the front seats cool as well as heat. The Nissan Mobile Entertainment System Package ($1,700) is specifically designed to entertain rear passengers. It adds twin eight-inch monitors installed behind the front head restraints, two sets of wireless headphones, DVD video playback capability, and rear USB and HDMI inputs.

CarsDirect Tip

Of the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder lineup, the S trim is rather basic while the Platinum's starting price seems hard to justify. Mid-range SV and SL models deliver the best balance between value and equipment, and the intelligent four-wheel-drive system is worth its premium.
