Nissan Pathfinder

The Japanese model Nissan Pathfinder has been released for some time now and it is the perfect reason for which crossovers are so popular these days. This model is the most in-demand long-term vehicle the company has ever made. The model has a 114.2-inch wheelbase and has a great suspension system and has a luxurious interior. Its major rival is the Ford Explorer. In the next few minutes we will highlight some differences between the two. The interior of the Nissan seems to be bigger thanks to the massive panoramic moon roof. In terms of technology the Pathfinder comes with navigation and an infotainment system and the Ford comes with the MyFord Touch.

To transfer the output to the road, the engineers have offered a continuously variable transmission. In a test drive for 100 miles with no other traffic, the model obtained a fuel consumption of 24.3 mpg with a speed of around 73 mph on average. Under the hood, the model hides a 3.5-liter V6 unit capable of great output. The transmission comes with an option that pre-selected ratios for engine braking. Another good thing about the Japanese model refers to the satellite radio reception which came in very handy while traveling through the mountains of the Keystone State.

One of the down elements refers to the climate control which is not capable of reducing the temperature enough. This is a bit weird for a vehicle of this type as it is actually the first one to have this problem, at least from what we have heard before. Please scroll down and check out the few pictures available with the new Nissan Pathfinder, which is not so new for most of us, in the end.
