Long class as a leather hard, this 4th generation of all-terrain change of vocation in every sense of the word. In addition, the direction of Nissan Pathfinder 2013 successfully adapting the new utility to offer it under its Nissan Infiniti division.
Nissan has an idea well stopped on the tastes of consumers. Buyers today want space, accessories like Bluetooth and GPS and care little performance. That’s rigged why the engineers it have up a 3.5-litre V6. It offers more than 260 horse power and some 240 lb. – ft. of torque. It must be understood that it can take up to 5000 pounds of payload. So, imagine 4 adults, all luggage and a trailer behind. The V6 might suffer a bit.
The organizers had put at our disposal a Pathfinder to which was attached a trailer to see towing capacities. I must admit that he is doing quite well, but without luggage and other passengers. The V6 engine is mated to a continuously variable transmission, CVT. Is enabled by a chain and not a belt. A simple matter of robustness. The utility is the first vehicle in its segment to receive this type of box. It is effective, but my allergy to mailboxes CVT prevents me from really appreciate it.
The New Pathfinder 2013 is available in traction or full-gear mode. In the latter case, you will have the choice of 3 modes according to your needs. Using a button, you can opt for the mode of traction, automatic mode that will alter the gear according to the road conditions and the mode full-gear at all times. It is available in 4 S, SV, SL and Premium versions. It will be available at a price ranging from $29,998 to $45,198 (including $825 destination charge).
Are all, the new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder only retained the name. Its change of vocation is an adaptation to the new realities of the market. While sales of the competing products such as the Honda Pilot, Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander are rising, those of the Pathfinder stagnated. This new generation should do better and above all to satisfy the demands of a new generation of consumers.
