About Nissan Pathfinder

Since being introduced in the late 1980s, the Nissan Pathfinder has grown larger and more refined, helping it better walk a line between suburban family runabout and macho, rugged rock crawler. It’s now broad-shouldered enough to fit such new-millennium amenities as a fold-flat third-row seat, powerful V6 and V8 engines and a towing capacity up to 7,000 pounds, but remains tidy enough to fit in a standard garage space. It’s also one of the rare SUVs to switch from unibody construction back to a truck-based body-on-frame setup, creating a sturdier truck at the expense of additional weight.

Nevertheless, the latest Pathfinder has never dominated in any one area, and its bland styling and unremarkable ride and handling do not help its appeal. Today’s seven-passenger Pathfinder may be overlooked by SUV shoppers who have plenty of other large crossovers to choose from with more spacious cabins, better fuel economy and more refined driving manners.

Current Nissan Pathfinder

The Nissan Pathfinder is a traditional SUV and boasts the typical strengths and weaknesses of body-on-frame architecture. The standard engine is a 4.0-liter V6 producing 266 horsepower and 288 pound-feet of torque. The optional 5.6-liter V8 makes 310 hp and 380 lb-ft of torque.

Both engines come standard with a five-speed automatic transmission and are available with four-wheel drive.

The interior is roomy enough for tall people up front and a pair of kids in the standard third-row seat. The midsize SUV features more creature comforts and storage bins than ever, including two gloveboxes. Pathfinder buyers have a choice of four trim levels: base S, midgrade SV, the more luxurious Silver and the upscale LE.

In our reviews, we’ve enjoyed the Nissan Pathfinder’s powerful engines, above-average abilities off-road, and ample storage. With the V8, the Pathfinder can also tow considerably more than the average crossover SUV. The main criticisms include tight rear seating for adults, inconsistent fit and finish, the V8’s poor fuel economy and ponderous on-road handling.

Used Nissan Pathfinder Models

The latest, third-generation Nissan Pathfinder debuted for the 2005 model year. The most notable midcycle change has been the addition of the 5.6-liter V8 engine as an option in 2008. Other changes for ’08 included a revised interior and slightly tweaked styling.

There was an SE Off Road 4×4 trim level available until 2010, which featured such all-terrain items as 16-inch off-road alloy wheels with rugged trail tires, Bilstein shocks, skid plates, Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist.

The second-generation (1996-2004) Pathfinder debuted right when the SUV craze hit a fever pitch. A switch to carlike unibody construction afforded it significant gains in size, interior space and on-road agility, while shedding 200 pounds. The softer Pathfinder’s unremarkable styling and wimpy engine (its V6 made just 166 hp) rendered it merely average within its crowded segment, though.

A small backseat also made it less suitable for hauling children than some competitors.

Nissan followed a cosmetic update in 2000 with a much-needed engine upgrade in the form of its powerful VQ-series 3.5-liter V6. In the Pathfinder, it was good for an impressive 240 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. The improvements added enough flavor to earn the Nissan Pathfinder two consecutive Edmunds.com Most Wanted awards, in 2001 and 2002.

Launched in 1986 for the 1987 model year, the original Nissan Pathfinder has roots that run deeper than most midsize SUVs. Initially, the Pathfinder was intended to appeal to the same youthful, active, mostly male buyers that Toyota appealed to with its 4Runner. Based on Nissan’s compact pickup platform, the original Pathfinder looked macho and performed well off road, even though it was not terribly well-equipped or spacious by today’s standards. It wasn’t very powerful either, even with the optional 3.0-liter V6.

It was offered initially only in a two-door body style, later adding a four-door variant that ultimately became its only configuration in subsequent generations. Pathfinders were available with four- and six-cylinder engines, as well as rear- and four-wheel drive.

Jay Leno checks out Nissan IDx Nismo, spiritual successor to classic Datsun 510

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 19:59:00 EST

Jay Leno may not be spending his night behind the Tonight Show desk anymore, but he’s clearly not done rolling precious metal into his garage, intent on putting it through its paces after a thorough investigation. The latest machine to meet Jay on his home turf is the Nissan IDx Nismo Concept that we first saw at the Tokyo Motor Show late last year.

Leno already has love for the classic Datsun 510, which plays a cameo in the video that you’ll see below, and he refers to the IDx as the spiritual successor to that car’s ethos — driving fun in an affordable package. Fortunately for us, while the IDx is a showcar first and foremost, it is indeed driveable, and Leno, naturally, takes his turn behind the wheel.

Nissan bringing ‘New Sedan Concept’ to Beijing Motor Show

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 14:00:00 EST

During the 2014 Detroit Auto Show, Nissan showed off its Sport Sedan Concept (pictured above), an orange creation meant to foreshadow the next generation of the brand’s Four-Door Sports Car, the Maxima. For the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, though, Nissan is going to deliver a Chinese take on a future four-door, with the New Sedan Concept (imaginative name, we know).

Like the Nissan Friend-Me Concept from the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show, the NSC has been designed by Nissan Design China in Beijing. Outside of that, information is in short supply. Nissan claims this latest concept is targeted at the Chinese digital lifestyle.

Whether it serves as an evolution of the Friend-Me’s swoopy design or a regional take on Nissan’s Detroit concept, though, remains to be seen.

We’ll have the full slate of info on the Nissan New Sedan Concept, along with everything else that happens at the 2014 Beijing Motor Show, when the floor opens on April 23. Take a look below for the official press release from Nissan, which also includes a recap of previously debuted models that will be shown at Beijing.

Nissan to make 85% of the vehicles it sells here in US

Fri, 07 Mar 2014 08:45:00 EST

We could be in for a big push from Nissan in the manufacturing realm if Vice President of US Sales and Marketing Fred Diaz has anything to say about it. Speaking to the Automotive Press Association recently, Diaz (above) expressed a desire to build some 85 percent of the vehicles Nissan sells to Americans in the US, claiming it will happen in the very near future. Nissan has already moved to increase exports of its US-built products, and in 2013, it built just over 76 percent of the models it sold in this market within our country’s borders.

Any issues of us taking advantage of the value of the yen, we want to dispel that, Diaz told reporters, pointing out the contentious issue of currency manipulation. There’s also the obvious goal of positive PR — Americans like things made in America, and they like companies that invest in America. Diaz is quick to point out that Nissan had done just that: While a lot of people retrenched [during the recession], instead we leaned into it and we continued investing and in fact made over $5 billion in investments, bringing a lot of production from Japan to the United States and to Mexico, Diaz said, pointing out that Nissan has helped create 8,000 jobs through its investments.

Nissan runs three factories in the US, two in Tennessee and one in Mississippi. Between the three, production is up 22 percent, while the overall exports from the facilities have increased by 100,000 units, Diaz told reporters.

2015 Nissan GT-R Nismo priced from $149,990* [w/videos]

Wed, 05 Mar 2014 15:20:00 EST

Remember when they called the Nissan GT-R a supercar-slayer? You can drop the slayer part, because the Japanese brute known as Godzilla has long since grown from an ankle-biter nipping at the heels of giants to a giant in its own right. And if that’s the case with the basic GT-R, it’s certainly the case with the new GT-R Nismo.

While the base price for the GT-R has breached the six-figure mark, the Nismo version has just been priced ten bucks shy of $150k. Factor in the $1,595 destination charge and you’re looking at a $151,585 sticker price. That may seem like a lot for a Nissan, but bear in mind what you’re getting for all that scrap: the GT-R Nismo’s 3.8-liter twin-turbo V6 has been optimized to deliver 600 horsepower and 481 pound-feet of torque to all four wheels.

We’ve yet to see official performance stats, but considering that the base GT-R hits 60 in 2.6 seconds with 55 hp and 18 lb-ft less muscle, the Nismo version ought to teach a lesson or two to exotic supercars costing twice or even ten times as much. Just check it out in the videos and press release below.

2015 Nissan Juke keeps its funky

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 20:30:00 EST

The Nissan Juke is one of the most polarizing vehicles on the road today, but that doesn’t mean it hasn’t been a sales success, especially in Europe. Nissan is giving the the CUV its first styling refresh at the Geneva Motor Show. While the design changes will almost certainly be universal, the mechanical changes are still somewhat of a mystery for the US market.

Nissan makes it clear in its press release below that it covers only the European model, and details about the North American model are coming later.

The exterior changes put a focus on making the Juke look a bit more angular and sporty. The lights on the fenders are now formed into a jagged point and somewhat echo the boomerang-shaped taillights. It also features Nissan’s new, thicker V-shaped chrome grille. The door mirrors receive LED turn signals, and the lower portion of the rear receives a simulated mesh grille to look more aggressive. Other than some new color schemes, the interior is basically unchanged.

However, the luggage area has been reshaped to increase storage capacity by 40 percent to 12.5 cubic feet (354 liters).

European buyers are getting a new 1.2-liter DIG-T turbocharged engine with 113 horsepower (115PS) and 140 pound-feet of torque (190Nm), and the 1.6 DIG-T also gets an increased compression ratio to produce 188 hp and is offered with either a six-speed manual or Nissan’s Xtronic CVT. The all-wheel-drive system has also been upgraded with a torque vectoring system.

Infiniti Q50 Eau Rouge gets the heart of a GT-R [w/video]

Tue, 04 Mar 2014 05:20:00 EST


There has been ongoing talk of an Infiniti using the Nissan GT-R powertrain practically since the moment the Nissan’s flagship sports coupe hit the road. While the rumors have gone back and forth over the years, they have never completely gone away. It seems Infiniti is finally turning an ear to the screams of its most vocal enthusiasts with an updated version of the Q50 Eau Rouge concept boasting a modified version of Godzilla’s engine and all-wheel drive system debuting at the 2014 Geneva Motor Show.

It’s even taking things a step further and granting it a new, seven-speed transmission to replace the Nissan’s six-speed.

The latest evolution of the Eau Rouge packs the same 3.8-liter, twin turbocharged V6 found in the GT-R but with a unique tune of 560 horsepower and 443 pound-feet (600 Newton-meters) of torque. That makes it 15 hp more powerful than the standard 2015 GT-R but gives up 20 lb-ft of torque. Power gets to the ground through the GT-R’s all-wheel-drive system.

Infiniti predicts that the Eau Rouge would sprint to 60 miles per hour in less than 4 seconds and on to a top speed of 180 mph.

According to Infiniti Communications Senior Manager Kyle Bazemore in an email to Autoblog, the modded GT-R powertrain was not the only choice for the Eau Rouge. It also considered developing a high-power sports diesel and hybrid versions with an electric supercharger. However, this was the clear solution for this concept car, Bazemore said. Other than the drivetrain, the Eau Rouge in Switzerland is identical to the one shown in Detroit. Sadly, it is not confirmed for production; so we might not be getting the fabled Infiniti GT-R sedan any time soon.

Still, we can hope.

Check out Nissan’s clever digital Smart Rearview Mirror

Fri, 28 Feb 2014 19:15:00 EST

Using cameras in place of a car’s rearview mirrors has long been a feature of pie-in-the-sky concept cars, although so far, it’s failed to translate into the world of production vehicles. Nissan is looking to change that, though, with its new Smart Rearview Mirror.

With a flick of a switch, drivers can jump back and forth between what they’d normally see through the rearview mirror and the camera’s feed from the back of the car.

The Smart Rearview Mirror blends everything we know about traditional reflective glass mirrors with a video feed from the rear of the car into a form factor that’s immediately recognizable to the average motorist. With a flick of a switch, drivers can jump back and forth between what they’d normally see through the rearview mirror and the camera’s feed from the back of the car. The mirror itself features an integrated LCD display with a four-to-one aspect ratio.

2014 Nissan Juke Nismo RS priced from $26,120*

Fri, 28 Feb 2014 17:46:00 EST

We’ll admit, we’re quite excited about the Nissan Juke Nismo RS, especially now that its price has been revealed. For $26,120, you can get the sharpest, sportiest Juke outside of the over-caffeinated, 545-horsepower Juke R.

That base price reflects the cost of the Juke Nismo RS you really want — the front-drive model, complete with six-speed manual. Snagging an all-wheel-drive, CVT-equipped version will cost an extra $2,000. Those prices don’t include an *$810 destination charge.

The Juke Nismo RS boasts an extra 18 hp and 26 pound-feet of torque over the 197-hp Juke Nismo, thanks to things like a new exhaust. The big, must-have feature, though, are the Recaro thrones fitted in the front of the RS. As we said when the hot Juke debuted in LA last year, the seats alone may be worth upgrading to the RS model.

Nissan GT-R convertible offered in three flavors from NCE

Fri, 28 Feb 2014 14:59:00 EST

Newport Convertible Engineering, the Southern California company that can’t keep its top on, has revealed on its website that it is now producing three different droptop versions of the Nissan GT-R Convertible. It’s just another page in its work with high-end offerings like the new Range Rover and the Jaguar XJ. NCE owner Al Zadeh tells Autoblog that the superfast speedster came about during a trip to Abu Dhabi, when clients of his that collectively owned ten GT-Rs said they wanted him to engineer a convertible.

They didn’t want to see pictures, though, They wanted to touch it and see it, he said.

So he built a convertible with a traditional, unadorned soft tonneau cover (the white one in our gallery) and another with hard tonneau cover fitted with roll hoops and a low-rise dual cowl (the blue one). When the clients saw it, They said they wanted something more glamorous, Zadeh said. So he came up with the black version above with a hard tonneau cover and can’t-miss-it cowling that, frankly, looks pretty good to us in that color and with those wheels.

Clients satisfied, the order books have opened for other GT-R owners around the world. The most restrained version runs $29,500 to build, the other two retail for $49,000, and all of them require a donor GT-R and eight weeks to finish. With facilities in SoCal, Europe and the Middle East, you won’t even have to send your Godzilla too far away if this is the look you’ve decided it just has to have.

2016 Nissan Titan coming to 2015 Detroit Auto Show

The Titan has continued to sit in a corner of Nissan’s front yard, taken out on occasion but largely unloved, the same way you see a project truck in a neighbor’s driveway that makes you wonder, Are they ever going to do anything with that? The fullsize pickup made the news about six months ago when reports surfaced that the next generation would offer a Cummins diesel engine that had originally been meant for Ram, then it returned to the shadows.

According to a report from Edmunds, the Titan will return to the spotlight in about a year, with the unveil of the 2016 model planned for next year’s Detroit Auto Show. Along with that oil-burner, it will bring a gasoline V6 engine, a complete redesign and a regular cab configuration to finally give it a fighting chance against the thick end of the light-duty truck market. Toyota gets pressed for the molasses-like sales of the Tundra, but that fullsize entrant sold 7,890 units in January and 10,988 in December 2013. Nissan sold 887 Titans in January, 1,284 in December 2013 and broke 2,400 US sales in a single month just once in four years. (The segment-leading Ford F-150, for reference, sold 46,536 units in January.)

An entry-level model and a regular cab option should give the Titan a welcome and overdue sales boost. Better power numbers and fuel economy for the V8 would probably go a long way, too. We expect to start getting glimpses of its future later this year.
