Nissan Pathfinder New Car Review in 2013

April 20, 2013 in Auto News, Motor Show, New Cars


The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is a step away from roughness and off road capabilities and built around values of comfort, utility and spaciousness. Clearly a big step away from the earlier generation Nissan Pathfinder, the new Pathfinder sits on the same front wheel drive structural design as the Nissan Altima sedan and the new Infiniti JX crossover.


A Nissan Pathfinder is sold in 4 trim levels with store price in the range of US$ 31,000 to US$ 46,800 depending on the trim chosen. The prices tend to vary a bit depending on any ongoing promotions at the time and they are usually a bit less for commercial buyers.
