5 reasons to buy the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder

1. Two engine choices 

The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder comes in four trim levels: S, SV, SL, and Platinum. Each of these options pairs with a 3.5L V6. There's also a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid option in the SV, SL, and Platinum trims. This ride features a supercharged 2.5L four-cylinder engine mated to a 15-kilowatt electric motor and compact lithium-ion battery pack. Both engine choices have continuously variable transmissions (CVTs) and either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. 

2. Towing options 

SUVs are characterized as people-haulers, but the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder can also tow a small camper, utility trailer, or horse trailer. Models fitted with the gasoline-powered engine can tow an estimated 5,000 lbs when properly equipped.

If you choose a 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid, the towing capability dips a bit to an estimated 3,500 lbs when properly equipped.
So, what are you waiting for? Hitch up the horse trailer on your next visit to an equestrian-friendly park. 

3. Handy driving aids 

When driving a larger vehicle, it's nice to have helpful driver-assist features. All trim levels of the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder include stability control and traction control. The SV and SL trims add on a rearview camera and rear parking sensors to make parallel parking and backing out of a driveway much easier. Opt for the top-tier Platinum trim to gain a 360-degree parking camera. 

4. Flexible cargo space 

Behind the third-row seats, you'll enjoy 19 cu-ft of storage space in the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder. This is plenty of room for the weekly grocery pick-up order or works well as a place to stow school backpacks each morning and afternoon. If you need more cargo room, the second and third-row seats all fold flat to open up a total of 79.8 cu-ft of storage room for a few dog kennels, boxes on moving day, or to set up a cozy car camping spot for two. 

5. Loaded with technology 

Both you and the kids will appreciate the level of connectivity in the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder. Your teens can easily stream their favorite playlists on the way to school thanks to the Bluetooth® phone connectivity on the SV trim and higher. You'll love the seven-inch color display screen, available satellite radio, rearview camera, and USB interface on the SV trim.

If you opt for an SL trim with the SL Tech package, you gain an eight-inch touchscreen display and a navigation system.
