Drivers in Mobile, Prichard, and Saraland can find more information on just a few of the Pathfinder’s highlights in the review below.

Performance Specifications

All four trim levels of the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder come equipped with the 3.5L Direct Injection Gasoline™ (DIG) DOHC V6 engine. The engine comes standardly paired with an Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) and front-wheel drivetrain.

For an even more controlled ride, upgrade the drivetrain to the available intelligent 4×4 drivetrain. This drivetrain is just as comfortable on dirt as it is on pavement. This is made possible by its smart sensors that monitor all four wheels individually and vary their torque.

The Pathfinder’s standard mechanical configuration provides drivers with best-in-class towing capabilities. This SUV can haul up to 6,000 pounds1 of boat, equipment, trailer, or whatever else you might need for your next adventure.

Advanced Technology

The 2018 Pathfinder doesn’t just have power down pat. This SUV has also mastered advanced technology by including a variety of standard and available entertainment and convenience features.

The standard 3D Advanced Drive-Assist® Display works hard behind the steering wheel to keep you informed and up-to-date without having to take your eyes too far off the road. This isn’t the only screen you’ll find in this vehicle, though.

The standard 8.0-inch color multi-touch infotainment system keeps you connected even while you’re focused on driving. Bluetooth® hands-free phone capabilities let you send text messages and make phone calls without taking your hands off the wheel. You’ll also have plenty of music-listening options with standard Bluetooth® wireless audio streaming and SiriusXM® satellite radio.

Spacious Cargo Capacities

We’ve seen that the 2018 Pathfinder is capable of towing a lot. But what about hauling things inside the cabin space? You’ll be happy to know that its cargo abilities are just as extensive.

2018 Nissan Pathfinder Interior

This vehicle has 79.5 ft3 of customizable cargo space. This measurement is for when the second and third row of seats are folded down. The standard EZ FLEX® Seating System with its second-row 60/40 spring fold-flat bench seat and third-row 50/50 split fold-flat reclining bench seat lets you decide how much space you need for passengers and items.

Choose some seats up and some seats down to accommodate friends and all of their stuff. Or, opt to leave all seven seats up for 154 ft3 of passenger space and still be able to enjoy 16 ft3 of cargo space. Your passengers will be comfortable with 41.7 inches legroom without having to pick and choose what to leave behind.
