While loaded with passenger, cargo, safety and technology features, don’t be fooled, the Nissan Pathfinder is more than capable with its extensive performance features. Its engine is both powerful and efficient for any situation. Top-level towing capability puts it above its competition. Driver systems put you in control of how your Pathfinder reacts to any tough environments. At West End Nissan, the Nissan Pathfinder is ready for your adventuring.
Nissan Pathfinder Engine
The Pathfinder’s engine doesn’t excel at just power or efficiency, it mends them both into a superiorly capable powertrain giving you the best of both worlds. The 3.5L Direct Injection Gasoline™ V6 gives you all the power you’d expect, with 284 horsepower, while maintaining low fuel consumption. It connects through an Xtronic CVT® transmission to help improve the smoothness of your drive. The engine stays efficient by holding a steady RPM when driving and then delivers a rush of power when you need that extra boost. Your Nissan Pathfinder houses an engine that is efficient while pushing all the power that your SUV needs.
Nissan Pathfinder Towing
The Nissan Pathfinder has the potential to be a towing beast equal to most capable SUVs on the market. A heady 259 lb-ft of torque is produced from the vehicle, with 6,000 lbs of towing capacity for this hardworking Pathfinder. That 6,000 lbs number puts it ahead of its SUV competition in this aspect, with the Ford Explorer FWD, Honda Pilot V6 AWD and Toyota Highlander only managing 5,000 lbs out of their vehicles. With the tow hitch, you get this best-in-class standard towing capacity so you can get the most out of the Pathfinder’s utility.
Nissan Pathfinder Driver Systems
Driving in Alberta means your vehicle needs to be equipped to take on a variety of terrain, and the Pathfinder has systems to help you easily get over any obstacles. The Intelligent 4×4 system requires just a twist of its knob to switch into a driving mode that best confronts your surroundings. 2WD gives you the best efficiency, 4WD Lock Mode is for challenging terrain and Auto Mode switches between front and rear wheel power for the best traction. This system works with the Advanced Driver Assist® Display, showing you a digital picture of your vehicle’s wheel system with how much torque is being distributed to each wheel. Make use of the hill start assist and hill descent control to manage driving on slopes by preventing rollback and the overall drive on the vehicle less stressful. Your method of tackling tough roads is at your fingertips in the Nissan Pathfinder.
