2018 NISSAN PATHFINDER
Equipped with a powerful V6 3.5-liter engine and a modern automatic transmission, the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder offers a smooth and easy drive. Its standard keyless start, cruise control, and power steering reduce your stress on the road and make driving more fun and enjoyable. The Pathfinder has a high maximum trailering capacity of up to 6000 pounds, which speaks to the impressive power of its engine. Front-wheel drive is standard in this SUV, but four-wheel drive is an optional upgrade for the 2018 model.
Nissan’s 2018 Pathfinder has a sleek and streamlined exterior with elegant aluminum wheels and a rear spoiler for added style and speed. Its interior is comfortable and refreshingly simple and includes special convenience features like power windows, keyless entry, and an optional luggage rack. It has three roomy rows of seats that can hold up to seven passengers at a time with plenty of room to spare.
The Nissan Pathfinder was completely redesigned in 2013 and has undergone minor refreshes in its subsequent annual releases. The 2018 Pathfinder comes with its own set of new, refreshed features that modernize and upgrade this midsize SUV.
An automatic emergency braking system–which was an optional upgrade in previous Pathfinders–is standard in the 2018 model for added driving safety. A new rear-door alert system is also a standard feature that helps discourage break-ins. Nissan’s 2018 Pathfinder is also available in an upgraded midnight edition, which includes SL trim features along with black exterior accents–outside mirrors, grille, rear spoiler, splash guards, etc.–and illuminated detailing that give the newest version of this midsize SUV a sleek and stylish finish.
The fuel efficiency of the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder is impressive, especially among SUVs that are equipped with a similarly high maximum towing capacity. The Pathfinder’s gas mileage varies depending on which model you choose.
Standard 2018 Pathfinder models with front-wheel drive have an average gas mileage of 20 MPG on city streets and 27 MPG on the highway. Upgraded models equipped with optional but available four-wheel drive get a slightly less economical mileage of 19 MPG in the city and 26 MPG on the highway. When compared with the average combined gas mileage of 18 MPG for standard modern SUVs, the fuel efficiencies of all 2018 Pathfinder models are at the top of their class.
Safety is a top priority in the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder. Its modernized safety features help minimize the risk of crime and break-ins and ensure a safe and secure ride for drivers and passengers alike. This SUV has earned excellent safety ratings when tested for side impact, rear crash protection, and roof strength.
The 2018 Pathfinder includes a rear back-up camera, so you don’t have to deal with the discomfort of swivelling your head around or the stress of worrying about any obstacles that might be in your blind spot every time you put your car in reverse. Power door locks allow you to lock every door in the car easily and instantly from the driver’s seat to prevent crime and keep younger passengers safe and secure in the backseat. An efficient alarm lets you know right away if there is any suspicious activity around your car. Plus, the Pathfinder’s separate vehicle anti-theft system will not allow the car’s engine to start without the presence of a registered key nearby.
Upgraded Pathfinder models include optional safety features as well. The most notable of these add-on features is blind-spot monitoring that lets you know when a vehicle or other obstacle is in your blind spot where you might not be able to see it in your mirrors.
Nissan’s 2018 Pathfinder is equipped with a built-in state-of-the-art NissanConnect infotainment system that is widely renowned as the best vehicle infotainment system that modern technology has to offer. This infotainment interface is built into an 8-inch touchscreen that can be easily controlled with an intuitive dial-and-button controller.
The graphics on the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder’s display screen are sharp and clear, and screen responses are impressively fast. In terms of convenience and functionality, NissanConnect does not disappoint. Its menus are organized logically to help you find whatever you’re looking for quickly and easily. Playing your favorite music, podcasts, or radio stations from your smartphone or other mobile device is simple with NissanConnect.

NissanConnect also offers multiple available upgrades for the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder’s infotainment system. These optional upgrades include real-time traffic and weather reports, mobile WiFi, 4G LTE, and superior navigation capabilities.
