The 2012 Nissan Pathfinder is a sport utility vehicle that sticks as close to its name as possible. It is built on the same chassis as the Nissan Titan pick-up truck. The 2012 Nissan Pathfinder has an MSRP of $29,290 and is available with two strong engines. A 4.0L V-6 engine with 266 horsepower or a 5.6L V-8 engine with 310 horsepower is available. The Toyota 4Runner and the Honda Pilot are Pathfinder's main rivals in the segment.
The 2012 Nissan Pathfinder has a reputation for being a tough SUV with good off-road ability. This third-generation model, which was released in 2005, is no exception. The Pathfinder can tow up to 7,000 pounds, which outperforms most car-based crossovers. While the Pathfinder's truck-based muscle is useful for navigating rutted roads to your favorite fishing hole or towing the family camping trailer, it comes at a cost. You'll be giving up features like a smooth ride, confident handling, good fuel efficiency, and an interior with lots of capacity for both passengers and baggage.
