About the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder

As one of Nissan's foundational vehicles in popularity, sales and segment
leadership for more than a quarter century, the 2013 Pathfinder's combination
of next-gen SUV design and smart technology brings a fresh approach to the SUV
segment – just as the original Pathfinder did back in 1986.

generation remains family adventure ready with the highest standard towing
rating in its class** (5,000-lb.), while also offering best-in-class passenger
volume** and best-in-class 26 mpg* – an increase in fuel economy of over 30
percent***** versus the previous generation Pathfinder. Fuel economy is rated

Tire Alert and segment-first availability of the Around View^® Monitor.
