The all-new aerodynamic style of the 2013 Pathfinder’s exterior helped the vehicle shed 500 pounds of mass. Even with this change, the Pathfinder still provides the most interior passenger volume, front headroom, and legroom in its class. The lighter weight also helped improve fuel economy as the 2013 Pathfinder has 30 percent better fuel economy as compared to the 2012 Pathfinder. The FWD version has fuel economy estimations of 20 mpg city, 26 mpg highway, and 22 mpg combined. The 4WD version gets 19 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, and 21 mpg combined.
“It’s no secret that the industry has shifted as gas prices have increased,” says Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, Inc. “But while traditional SUV customers are looking for improved fuel economy, they still demand a vehicle that can do all the things they need, like carrying seven people, towing, and providing the surefootedness in all conditions of a four-wheel drive.”
The 2013 Pathfinder can do all that and more, and it will be making its way to James Ceranti Nissan this fall. For more information, visit us online at www.jamescerantinissan.net.
