Nissan Pathfinder 2009 review

For next year, the pathfinder SUV model comes having equipment availability and revised packaging, including the basic 18-inch machined alloy aluminum wheels addition on LE V6 Pathfinder units (previously basic on LE V8 autos only). Other modifications include that addition of basic supplemental air bags side and curtain on all units and a brand new car door lock function. 2 new colors of the exterior are available for 2009 also.

The Pathfinder 2009 is available having a 2 engines choice – a powerful 32-valve V8 5.6-liter DOHC engine delivering 310 horsepower plus 388 lb-ft torque and 4.0-liter V6 266-horsepower. The V8 engine`s offered with the configuration of the Pathfinder LE 4x4, while the V6's offered on S, SE and LE 4x4 plus 4x2 units. There were electronically controlled by a five-speed automatic transmission.

The Pathfinder 2009 will be on sale having costs ranging from 27,210 Dollars for the 4x2 S variant and up to 40,210 Dollars for the V-8 4x4 LE one.

Pathfinder continues to stand out as an innovative, rugged SUV capable of handling adventures both on- and off-road,” said Al Castignetti, the vice president and general manager at Nissan Division, in North America. “The refinements for 2009, including standard side and curtain supplemental air bags, make what we believe is one of the best designed and thought-out family SUVs and even better value for 2009”.
