A Japanese company, Nissan traces its roots all the way back to 1911, with the founding of the Kwaishinsha Motor Works. That company grew, expanded and merged to become Datsun in 1932, then Nissan Motor Co., Ltd. in 1934. Nissan is now the world’s sixth largest automaker (as of 2011) and encompasses not only the Nissan brand but also Infiniti and the newly revived Datsun brand, which is rolling out sub-compact cars in developing markets. Popular Nissan models include the economical Versa, the sporty Maxima and the sleek Murano crossover.
About the Nissan Pathfinder
Since its debut in 1985, the Nissan Pathfinder has evolved from a boxy, two-door vehicle that resembled the Chevy Blazer to a sleek, mid-sized SUV. The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder has an intuitive 4WD system, continuously variable transmission and best-in-class 5,000-pound towing capacity.
The 2014 Pathfinder comes in six trims, from the basic S to the spiffy Platinum Premium, which has a dual panorama moonroof, three-zone entertainment system and Around View camera system. The Pathfinder also offers some notable optional accessories, such as a tent that connects to the rear and a GPS vehicle tracking and recovery system.
The best part of the Nissan Pathfinder is its interior, according to Car and Driver’s review of the 2013 model: “kingly” front seats that are heated and cooled, versatile second-row seating, and “acres of room.” The reviewer says the Pathfinder is heavy, however, and “lumbers when it should run.”
Nissan Pathfinder Environmental Impact
The Nissan Pathfinder gets the gas mileage you might expect from a mid-sized SUV: 20 mpg in the city and 26 on the highway. That’s not too impressive, but still best in class for its size. However, in late summer 2013 Nissan introduced a hybrid powertrain option for three trim levels — the SV, SL and Platinum. The hybrid Pathfinder will get an estimated 25 mpg in the city and 27 on the highway, and will have a one-tank driving range of more than 526 miles.
