What kind of power and handling can I expect from my 2018 Nissan Pathfinder?

All 2018 Nissan Pathfinders are driven by a 3.5-liter V6 engine with Nissan's Direct Injection Gasoline (DIG) system. The DIG system optimises throttle performance, fuel economy and emissions. The 284 horsepower and 259 lb-ft of torque offered by the Pathfinder's engine offer capable driving power, and are mated to the third generation of Nissan's Xtronic transmission with D-step Logic Control. Properly equipped, the Pathfinder can harness that engine power for a tow capacity of up to 6,000 pounds. With available Intelligent 4x4 4-wheel drive system, the Pathfinder offers selectable 2-wheel drive, auto, and 4-wheel drive lock modes which allow drivers to prioritize fuel economy or overall traction, depending on their conditions. Standard Hill Start Assist (on 2WD and 4WD models) and Hill Descent Control (only on 4WD models) add to the Pathfinder's capability both off-road and over less-savory on-road conditions. The vehicle's overall drive quality and comfort are enhanced by a 4-wheel independent suspension with front strut rebound springs.

What is the Pathfinder's interior like?

The 2018 Pathfinder's interior is spacious and comfortable, and outfitted with some of the latest tech for information, entertainment and convenience. A standard Advanced Drive-Assist Display located between the tachometer and speedometer puts vital driver assistance information right in front of the driver for quick and easy access. For even more information access, as well as vehicle settings, entertainment, navigation and more, a standard 8.0-inch touchscreen interface is mounted in the middle of the instrument panel. NissanConnect allows drivers to access this system through voice recognition with an HD microphone. The Pathfinder's three rows of seating can be configured into a wide array of configurations for optimized cargo or passenger space, or anything in between. A 2nd-row 60/40-split seat slides, reclines and folds flat, while the 50/50-split 3rdrow reclines and flat folds. Additional available interior features include a tri-zone Family Entertainment system, tri-zone Automatic Climate Control, Remote Engine Start, Bluetooth Hands-free Phone System and more.

What trim levels are available for the 2018 Pathfinder?

Finally, the Premium adds on LED headlights, woodgrain details, a Dual Panoramic Sunroof, Trailer Tow Package, and a 13-speaker Bose audio system, among other features.
