The new Pathfinder also addresses the "innovation that excites" needs of today’s drivers, with levels of responsive acceleration, braking, handling and ride comfort expected of a Nissan product.
"Our goal, which we’ve achieved, was to be the best not just on paper but in the real world. We focused our efforts on leadership in the areas that family SUV owners want most, such as Around View™ Monitor and Easy Fill Tire Alert," said Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc.
Addressing buyers’ desire for more efficiency in every aspect of their lives, the all-new 2013 Pathfinder utilizes a refined new drivetrain featuring a 3.5-liter DOHC V6 engine mated to a next-generation Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission)
The new engine and CVT combination maintains nearly the same horsepower as the previous generation’s larger displacement 4.0-liter V6 – 260 horsepower versus the previous 266 – and delivers responsive acceleration in a variety of conditions. The CVT holds the engine at the ideal rpm for the conditions at hand, offering responsive power for passing or towing when needed and quiet efficient running at cruising speeds or around town.
Pathfinder’s quiet, comfortable interior includes a wide range of available features, including three rows of rich leather-appointed seating surfaces, heated and cooled front seats, heated 2nd row seats, heated steering wheel, power tilt and telescoping steering wheel, Nissan Intelligent Key® with Push Button Start, multiple user memory settings and an advanced Bose® Audio System with 13 speakers.
