The Nissan Pathfinder: Excellence at its Best!
Over the past few decades, SUVs have become increasingly popular in North America, particularly for their ruggedness, power and handling. However, not all vehicles in this category are the same, and appearances can be deceiving. It's important to be well informed about each SUV before making a choice. As Nissan prepares to launch the fifth generation Pathfinder in 2021, find out why the Pathfinder is one of the best SUVs out there. Already a pioneer at the end of the last century, the Pathfinder has retained all the features you look for in an SUV and has adapted to modern times.
L'Ami Junior Nissan in Chicoutimi near Jonquière and La Baie presents you the characteristics that make this vehicle stand out in its category.
The SUV That Does it All!
First of all, unlike many of its contemporaries, the Nissan Pathfinder is an SUV that offers all-wheel drive on all versions of the lineup. All-wheel drive is further enhanced by Nissan's Traction Control and Vehicle Dynamic Control, which intelligently manipulate the brakes applied to each wheel. Thus, no matter what road you drive on, whether muddy or icy, you'll have the assurance of a reliable and stable vehicle at all times. Even for a driver who doesn't venture off the beaten path, winter will be easier than ever thanks to exceptional handling.
This stability comes with a good dose of power from the 3.5 L V6 engine, which produces 284 horsepower and 259 lb-ft of torque. Yet its power doesn't detract from class-leading fuel economy, with a combined fuel consumption rating of about 10.6 L/100 km.
Nissan Pathfinder's towing capacity is also impressive and surpasses the capacity of its competitors, reaching up to 6,000 lb. Add to that a cargo area that can hold up to 2,260 L with the seats folded down, and you have your new best travel companion.
However, this generous space isn't just for luggage: passengers also enjoy a spacious cabin on the Pathfinder, which seats up to seven people. Both the front and rear seats can be adjusted to accommodate passengers. The sliding second row and reclining third row seats add to the comfort of every occupant. Moreover, all members of your family will enjoy the same comfort thanks to the three-zone temperature control and multiple technologies.
In fact, the 2021 Pathfinder is beyond modern, and the more luxurious SL and Platinum versions offer features approaching those of a luxury car. These include notably the high-quality 13-speaker Bose audio system and the 8-inch screens for rear passengers to play or listen to movies. Young and older passengers alike will marvel at the magnificent two-panel panoramic roof that offers a breathtaking view of the scenery or the starlit sky. Leather-trimmed seats and steering wheel and heated and ventilated front seats could also be part of your upscale interior.
What's more, with the Nissan Pathfinder, you're getting the safest possible SUV, having been named "Best Safety Choice" in 2019 by the IIHS. Technologies such as intelligent emergency braking, blind-spot warning, cross-traffic alert and intelligent cruise control are all part of the package. The same goes for the perimeter display screen, which allows you to have eyes all around your head thanks to the 360-degree camera coverage.
As such, the 2021 Nissan Pathfinder should be your first choice if you're dreaming of power, travelling or simply transporting your family safely. This stable SUV has a lot to offer, and its value far exceeds the competitive price at which it's offered: don't hesitate any longer, it's the ideal SUV for you!
