2019 Nissan Pathfinder review: Our expert's take

What Is the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder?

The Pathfinder is a roomy SUV with seating for seven in three rows. All models come with a 284-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 engine that teams with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front- and all-wheel-drive versions are available. Competitors include the Ford Explorer, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander.

What’s New on the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder?

Rear parking sensors and two USB type-C ports are now standard, and SV trim levels add adaptive cruise control and blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert. SL and Platinum models gain LED headlights.

What Features in the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder Are Most Important?

All models have standard automatic emergency braking, and all but the base S trim now have blind spot warning with rear cross-traffic alert. SL and Platinum models feature a 360-degree camera system. Nissan also gives shoppers the choice of front- or all-wheel drive on all versions, which also have a roomy, easily accessible third row.

Should I Buy the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder?

Despite several strong points, the Pathfinder competes with a flock of three-row SUVs that offer as much or more in the way of features. The Pathfinder also suffers from a loud engine and a rough ride that's unrefined compared with other SUVs. Moreover, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto still aren’t available.

Great so far

This SUV gets good mileage for a V6, is fairly quiet and comfortable. It comes with a lot of safety and convenience features. A lot of bang for the buck.
