The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder is perfect for those who are looking for a vehicle with a lot of room with plenty of seating. This SUV has the type of easy drive and handling similar to that of a sedan with a strong V6 engine. Drivers and passengers will appreciate the high-tech convenience and safety features that make for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Best of all, its Driver’s Auto Mart Used Car of The Week!

 

Drive and Engine

The Nissan Pathfinder should certainly have full dominance when it comes to your car shopping list. This 3-row SUV focuses both on style and overall handling. The Pathfinder accommodates up to seven passengers, it also has a suspension that is up-to-date and returns a smooth ride. In a similar fashion to many Nissans, the 2017 SUV utilizes a continuously variable transmission that does a great job at imitating a traditional automatic. 

The standard setup is a front-wheel-drive, while an all-wheel-drive is optional on all trims. The AWD is an All-Mode 4×4-i intelligent system, it improves traction and provides a full-lock setting on rough or slippery roads. Overall, the 2017 Pathfinder is great for light off-roading and for steep slopes.

As for the engine, you’ll find that it has been reengineered with direct injection and other developments that provide more force and power but is still fuel-efficient. The  3.5-liter V6 engine has 284 horsepower at 6,400 rpm with 259 lb-ft of torque at 4.800 rpm. The Nissan Pathfinder also has a towing capacity from 5,000 to 6,000 pounds.

Exterior

The 2017 Nissan does away with the squared-off look that it used to have, as it has more curves and rounded edges that you may not be used to seeing. It also has a bold new V-Motion grille on its front end, as well as a new hood and front bumper that present a wider body. Additionally, exterior features include roof rails, an optional dual-panel moonroof, and a power-operated tailgate that is standard on higher trims.

Exterior colors include Cayenne Red, Sandstone, Midnight Jade, Caspian Blue, Glacier White, Pearl White, Brilliant Silver, Gun Metallic, and Magnetic Black.

Interior

Standard features on the base S trim include the standard V6 engine, tri-zone climate control, 8-inch touch-screen display with rearview camera display, push-button ignition, 6-way manual-adjust driver’s seat, 18-inch aluminum-alloy wheels, and now a Bluetooth wireless connectivity and even a 6-speaker AM/FM/CD audio system that has multiple USB ports and HD radio.

Safety features include airbags all around the vehicle, traction and stability control systems, and the Easy-Fill Alert (to assist with inputting the correct tire pressure).
