SUVs come in two forms: Body-on-frame or Unibody. The form names are descriptions in themselves. Traditionally, body-on-frame SUVs have been the tougher, more off-road capable ones, while unibodies tended to be crossover vehicles with more car-like driving attributes. The Nissan Pathfinder has flip-flopped from body-on-frame to unibody, back and forth again as it moved from generation to generation. Now, 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. Let's drive.
