It looks like Nissan has done it again: The brand that brings innovation for all is doing so by lowering prices on yet another new vehicle, pricing the completely redesigned 2013 Nissan Pathfinder at $28,270 at dealers like Livermore Nissan—more than $1,000 lower than the cost of the 2012 model.
But as was the case with the brand-new 2013 Nissan Sentra—also with an MSRP that starts below the current version’s—this wasn’t accomplished by sacrificing comfort or quality. Or style. Or fuel economy. Or standard equipment. Or maybe finding out what is the best nissan car for gas mileage?
According to a Boston Nissan Dealership, The 2013 Pathfinder presents all that and more, thanks to features like an aerodynamic new shape that enables best-in-class EPA marks of 20 mpg city/26 mpg highway/22 mpg. But, in a perfect example of Nissan’s no-compromises approach to the new Pathfinder, the vehicle’s robust 260-hp V6 engine also helps it achieve a segment-leading standard tow maximum of 5,000 lbs.
Other standard and available content for the reimagined Pathfinder include:
- A breakthrough seating system in which the second row can be tilted forward for easy access to the third, even when an unoccupied child seat is latched into the former.
- Nissan’s 360-degree Around View Monitor
- ALL-MODE intelligent all-wheel drive—a class exclusive
- Tri-zone automatic climate control
- A dual panoramic moonroof
- Bose’s 13-speaker premium audio system
- A tri-zone entertainment system
- Heated and cooled front seats
- Heated rear seats
- Bluetooth technology
- A nav system with eight-inch touchscreen
The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder goes on sale at Nissan Birmingham and across the country later this month as a “family-adventure-ready SUV … designed to reset the standard for the segment with an unprecedented level of premium style, comfort, fuel economy and thoughtful technology.”
