Steps to Buying a New Nissan eBook CTA

2018 Nissan Pathfinder

Shoppers in Gulfport, Pascagoula, and Waveland should read ahead for more information about how this SUV stacks up in terms of performance, interior cargo space, and advanced technology features.

Performance Specifications

There is one available engine for the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. This 3.5L Direct Injection Gasoline™ (DIG) DOHC V6 engine. Standardly, this engine is paired with a Xtronic CVT® (Continuously Variable Transmission) and a front-wheel drivetrain.

This vehicle also has an available intelligent 4×4 drivetrain. The intelligent 4×4 feature automatically varies the torque going to all four individual wheels to enhance power and performance on and off paved roads.

While this system is helpful, it’s surprisingly not needed to achieve the Pathfinder’s best-in-class standard towing capacity of up to 6,000 pounds1. Never limit your adventures again by leaving the boat or camper behind with this impressive standard towing capability.

Expansive Interior Space

Not only can the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder haul a lot, but it can also hold a lot inside the cabin. The Pathfinder has more than enough room for comfortable riding, no matter what seat you’re sitting in. The front row will enjoy 42.2 inches of best-in-class headroom2, while the second row enjoys a whopping 41.7 inches of legroom.

With all seats in use, the Pathfinder’s interior can seat seven passengers comfortably with 154 cubic feet of passenger space and an additional 16 cubic feet of cargo space for all your stuff. When both the second and third rows are both folded down, you’ll have 79.5 cubic feet of cargo space. That’s enough space for all of your home improvement project tools or that big college move.

Advanced Technology Features

Not only does the interior of the 2018 Pathfinder have a lot to offer in terms of space, but it’s also decked out in high-tech entertainment and convenience features for a smart ride. This SUV comes standard with a 3-D Advanced Drive-Assist® Display located behind the steering wheel to provide you with important information without having you turn your head.

You’ll also find an infotainment system complete with an 8-inch color multi-touch display in the Pathfinder that can do just about anything when properly equipped. It comes standardly equipped with Bluetooth® hands-free phone capabilities, Bluetooth® wireless audio streaming, and SiriusXM® Satellite Radio.

However, if you upgrade the system, you’ll have step-by-step navigation to get you anywhere you need to go and the Intelligent Around View® Monitor. You’ll have a 360-degree view of your vehicle’s surroundings as well as moving object detection.
