2023 Nissan Pathfinder
The crossover SUV market has gained another competitor: the new 2023 Nissan Pathfinder. The Japanese giant has a proud tradition of building hi-tech vehicles with lower maintenance costs and reliability; this new line up isn’t different. Come with us to learn more about this gorgeous and muscled-up SUV.
Performance and Driveability
This lineup brings six trims, all with a 3.5L V6 engine equipped with a DOHC 24-valve Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) system. Additionally, this engine has a CVTCS (Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System). The 9-speed automatic transmission is another standard feature that comes with a manual mode.
Depending on your choice, horsepower varies across the trims, going from 284hp to 295. Torque capacity also varies between 259 lb-ft and 270 lb-ft. If you’re looking for a vehicle for driving in the city, all of them have the same fuel efficiency: 8.5km/L. However, the performance varies on highways, which sit between 9.7km/L and 11.4km/L. The towing capacity is 2.721kg for all vehicles.
Interior and Exterior
SUVs are famous for being both comfortable and spacious, and Nissan doesn’t disappoint here. There are three rows of seats, with a capacity for up to eight passengers. There’s plenty of legroom and headroom for all passengers, and the seats are ready to provide comfort during long journeys. The front seats have several adjustments and memory foam. The temperature is kept even across the seats by a tri-zone automatic system.
From the outside, we can see LED taillights and headlights as standard features for all trims. There’s also rear privacy glass, rear spoiler, intelligent auto headlights, and UV-reducing solar glass.
Tech and Safety
Nissan’s vehicles always come surrounded by sophisticated tech features and driving assists that make any journey much safer. Some standard features include voice recognition, compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, Bluetooth, and auxiliary audio input. All trims have SiriusXM satellite radio, which comes with a three-month subscription.
There’s a long list of driving assists for all trims, such as blind spot monitoring, forward collision warning, lane departure, pedestrian detection, hill start assist, automatic emergency braking, and adaptive cruise control. Higher trims have a few additional features, including blind spot intervention, hill descent control, front and rear sonar system, and traffic sign recognition.
