2013 Nissan Pathfinder

Lighter and more efficient

The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder arrives as a unibody design, carrying base prices from $28,270 up to $40,770, depending on trim level, along with a 3-year/36,000-mile basic warranty, a 5-year/60,000-mile powertrain warranty and EPA fuel economy estimates of 19 mpg city/25 mpg highway for the all-wheel drive version and a class-leading 20 mpg city/26 mpg highway for the front-wheel drive version. The previous generation Pathfinder was a body-on-frame, off-road capable SUV that was 500 lbs heavier than the new version. This could be the Pathfinder of the moment, a vehicle that delivers the performance, efficiency and comfort that buyers will actually use, rather than off-road potential that remains just that: Potential, and never implemented.
