2013 - 2018 Nissan Pathfinder Trim Configurations

The Nissan Pathfinder is currently in its fourth generation of production, with production of its first generation dating all the way back to the late 1980s. For the fourth generation, the Pathfinder underwent a total redesign—with perhaps the most notable update being its change from a body-on-frame design to a truck-based/unibody design.

For the 2014 model year, there was also the release of the Nissan Pathfinder hybrid, which featured a supercharged four-cylinder engine paired with a 15-kilowatt electric motor. This made the 2014 Pathfinder one of the only full-size SUVs on the market to offer a hybrid version, though this was the only model year it was available.

For the Nissan Pathfinder 2015, a few new features were made available. This includes a blind-spot monitoring and cross-traffic alert system, as well as an upgraded CVT. Pathfinders with all-wheel drive also received hill-descent control, and an innovative 360-degree parking camera was added to the SL trim.

The Nissan Pathfinder 2016 saw a new package option with heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, known as the Cold Package.

For the Nissan Pathfinder 2017, updates included a more powerful engine and upgraded Nissan Pathfinder towing capacity.Inside the cabin, the 2017 Pathfinder boasts a larger touchscreen interface and some new infotainment features.

The Nissan Pathfinder 2018 doesn't see too many changes for the 2018 model year aside from a couple of extra USB charging ports and a rear-seat reminder system. Automatic emergency braking also becomes standard across all trim levels.

In terms of the Nissan Pathfinder, the 2013 Pathfinder base trim with front-wheel drive and 3.5-liter engine gets an estimated 22 mpg combined, compared to an estimated 23 mpg combined on the 2018 Pathfinder base trim with 3.5-liter engine.1 When the hybrid version was offered in 2014, its 2.5-liter engine paired with electric engine got an estimated 26 mpg combined.1

Not A Good Car

No I will not recommend buying this car Bc within the 90 days of owning the car I had to replace four brakes, rotors, calipers. Also the whole navigation system and back up camera and I had to get the driver seat fixed because every time i come to a full stop it felt like I was going through the windshield and also when I’m driving about 50+ miles an hr. I hear a rattling noise is coming from the right side of the car. And Carmax claims that they don’t hear no noise is coming from the right side of the car when they took the car out on a test drive going 50+ miles an hr. And they said that they didn’t hear no noise And claims that it’s the gas in the trunk.Everyone that gets in the car hear the noise. I’m afraid to drive my car.


  • Interior Space: Fits my family
  • Styling: It looks nice on the inside
  • Seat Comfort: The seats are comfortable


  • Braking: I had to have it replaced with the 90 days
  • Cabin Noise: I hear a very loud Rattling noise in the car coming from the right when I got 50+ miles an hour
  • Ride and Handling: The Rattling noise coming from inside of the car

I love Pathfinders but this body style is got to go-otherwise I would give it five stars

I do like the inside of the car with the leather seats, the Sirius radio but the control panel is impossible to work unless you read every thing in the manual and even then it's impossible to figure out how to change the Sirius radio back to FM. The other thing I am a total Pathfinder person-my previous Pathfinder was a 2008 and I loved the body style and that's what I wanted but could not get it with the newer car which is irritating., Every car I see on the road is exactly like my Pathfinder now and there's no distinction, looks more like a luxury vehicle than a real SUV even though I like things about the the car if I could exchange it for the older model for body style, I would. Why make a good car so unoriginal as far as style goes?


  • Interior Space:


  • Styling: Why do all carmakers have to go with the trend, this car is exactly like the Lexus the Volvo and many other cars on the road today with the rounded back which I hate. If I could take this car back I would, my previous Pathfinder was the square back more rugged look and I want that back again
  • Technology and Entertainment: Toggling back and forth to Sirius from FM is insane, nothing on the control panel is intuitive.

Piece of Junk car at a terrible price

I wouldn't recommend this particular car because I only had it less than six months and it's sitting in the shop right now getting the transmission rebuilt. It was in the shop less than a month ago getting getting a new valve box for the transmission. Right after I got it, I noticed the brakes were squealing. I took it to a family owned shop to get it checked out and found out the brakes were completely gone. It was just inspected two months before by CarMax. It also had alignment issues, which CarMax graciously took care of. If it weren't for the factory warranty, I would be out of a car that I'm paying a lot of money for. I traded in a vehicle that was dependable but didn't have all the features this one has. CarMax, shame on you!
