What You Will Like

Between its seating capacity and fuel economy, the Nissan Pathfinder makes a good value play. While previous Pathfinders competed with truck-like SUVs like the Toyota 4Runner, the 2019 Pathfinder aims instead to compete more closely with crossover vehicles such as the Toyota Highlander, bringing more space and refinement to the market at a slight cost to seldom used off-road capabilities.

Introduction

The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder is a mid-size crossover SUV with a versatile second row, and optional third row that’s well suited for smaller passengers.

With the Pathfinder, Nissan has made gradual changes since it was last redesigned for 2014. It was freshened for 2017 with a tweaked nose and tail, new engine, firmer suspension and better infotainment; model year 2018 saw automatic emergency braking. For 2019, rear parking sensors are standard on all models, with adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, and rear cross-traffic alerts standard on SV models and up. No active lane control is available, something found on many of the Pathfinder’s competitors.

Now in its sixth year after many generations, the Pathfinder soldiers on with a great engine, excellent handling and good ride, as well as a comfortable interior that resembles its rich cousin, the Infiniti QX60.

The Pathfinder drives more like a car than a truck, but with available all-wheel drive it can easily manage snow and rugged terrain. Thanks to a beefy tow hitch, it’s rated to tow up to 6,000 pounds, an impressive load for a mid-size crossover.

The strong 3.5-liter V-6 engine has direct injection and variable valve timing, making 284 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque. It’s mated to a continuously variable transmission.

Front-wheel-drive Pathfinders come in at 20/27/23 mpg on the EPA’s test, and 1 mpg less with all-wheel drive. The 20-inch wheels on the Platinum model drop those numbers another mile per gallon, because of their higher rolling resistance. That mileage falls between the Toyota Highlander and Chevy Traverse.

The IIHS gives the Pathfinder its top “Good” results in most crash tests, with an “Acceptable” score for the passenger side small-overlap frontal crash test, which simulates impact with an object like a tree or telephone pole. On the driver’s side, it got a Good.

Additionally, the IIHS said that the Pathfinder’s standard halogen headlights provide “Poor” coverage, while even the optional LED headlights on SL and Platinum trims are just “Acceptable.”

The NHTSA rated the 2019 Pathfinder at five stars overall, but only gave it four stars for side impact and four in the calculated rollover test.

Standard safety equipment includes six airbags, with the side-curtain airbags having a rollover sensor and covering all three rows. A rearview camera and rear sonar parking sensors are also standard. Then there’s the Easy Fill Tire Alert that honks the horn when you’ve inflated a tire to the correct amount; and another honk called Rear Door Alert, to check the back seats for forgotten pets or children, after you get out of the car.

Lineup

For about $32,200, the base 2019 Nissan Pathfinder S undercuts many of its rivals while providing most of the features families seek in a crossover SUV with a possible and functional third row. The S includes power features, parking sensors, automatic emergency braking, an 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment, a slew of USB Type A and Type C ports, and three-zone automatic climate control.

All-wheel drive costs about $1,700 on all Pathfinder trim levels.

For about $3,000 more, the SV adds adaptive cruise control, blind-spot monitors, a power driver’s seat, keyless ignition, an integrated garage door opener, and a handful of smaller features. Heated seats and a heated steering wheel are optional for $400.

The Pathfinder SL adds leather upholstery, heated seats and steering wheel, navigation, and a surround-view camera system, at about $39,000.

The range-topping Pathfinder Platinum adds Bose speakers, 20-inch wheels, cooled front seats, two sunroofs for about $43,500. Rear-seat entertainment is optional only on the Pathfinder Platinum, for $1,700.

Walkaround

Nissan wants the Pathfinder to look more like its rugged rivals, meaning more like a truck than a crossover, and it does. The nose and tail are both blocky, and there is an aggressive chrome grille like many trucks have. The similar-sized Murano is the Nissan crossover that looks like a crossover.

The overall lines go back to crossing over, with a long hood, raked windshield, flowing side creases with chrome touches, and upswept third window. The shapes, angles, and directions somehow make the Pathfinder look smaller than it is. You have to stand up against it to appreciate its true size, mid-size or not.

Interior

In Charcoal or Almond, the Pathfinder’s cabin looks a bit like its elegant cousin, the Infiniti QX60. Most Pathfinders have shiny black interior trim, but the matte-finish faux wood on higher trims has a dressy look, and there’s soft matte material on the door panels.

The dashboard is a mix between curvy shapes and blocky, vertical controls. An 8.0-inch touchscreen for infotainment sits high on the dash flanked by climate control vents with nearly 20 buttons and a big chrome knob below. The buttons can overwhelm at first, but they offer better access to myriad audio and optional navigation controls than some menu-intensive infotainment systems.

As big as the Pathfinder’s 8.0-inch touchscreen is, its software can be a chore to sort through, with its pinch-and-swipe control on tile icons, part of the NissanConnect infotainment system and its connectivity. It lacks Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, found in most competitors.

The Pathfinder isolates vibrations and road noise better than some others in the class. And it does a good job of balancing comfort, access, space and storage. There is a lot of elbow room, cupholders in the door pockets and center console along with two big trays, map pockets on the front seatbacks, no less than three bottle holders in each rear door, and cupholders on each side of the third row.

The comfortable front seats have good back support but little side bolstering, while the driver has a lot of adjustment. Our seat time included a long trip on the highway, and we have no complaints. The lack of bolstering doesn’t do a thing for cornering, but the Pathfinder isn’t a vehicle to be tossed around anyhow.

The bench seat in the second row slides back and forth 5.5 inches for legroom. It folds to gain access to the third row, with a feature called Latch and Glide that allows child seats to stay in place even while the seat partially folds, although not if a child is in it. The little ones will have to climb out, for the bigger kids to get in the third row.

The second row is comfortable, but has a leaned-back, legs-splayed seating position. That’s the compromise for its folding capability, to improve third-row access.

The optional third row is roomier than most, with short, flat cushions that sit quite low, providing headroom enough for early teens but not fully grown people.

With all the seats up, the Pathfinder has only 16 cubic feet behind the third row. With both rows folded, there is a solid 80 cubic feet of cargo space, still nothing like the massive 116 cubic feet in Chevrolet Traverse, but that’s a full-size SUV.

Driving Impressions

The 3.5-liter V-6, new with the latest technology last year, is quite quick for a mid-size crossover, with a 0 to 60 mph time of less than seven seconds. This engine in various states of tune is and has been used in many Nissan applications, including the Z sports car. It’s proven and it’s smooth.

The continuously variable transmission (CVT) uses Nissan’s D-Step shift logic, to mimic the distinct shifts of an automatic transmission; it works, to remove most of the high revving of a CVT, but it still drones a bit. And sometimes it’s slow to respond.

The suspension is fairly firm, stiffened by quite a bit in 2017. The ride is still comfortable; you can feel the bumps, but it’s not harsh.

The handling is controlled, with hydraulic-electric power steering that’s fairly quick, well-weighted, and has decent on-center feel. The Pathfinder feels lighter than it should, given its size and appearance. You can pitch it back and forth on choppy roads, and it won’t freak out like its heavier rivals. However some models have tires with a low rolling resistance, both 18-inch and 20-inch, which don’t have the grip that the chassis can handle.

There’s some torque steer in front-wheel-drive models, but not in the all-wheel-drive versions, which send most of the power to the front wheels until it’s needed in back for traction or stability. The driver can select front-wheel drive only, maximizing fuel efficiency, or a locked all-wheel-drive mode to distribute power equally front and rear.

The Pathfinder has less ground clearance than a Subaru Outback (which has an excellent CVT), but it handles ruts with stability, while the locking center differential provides more traction off-road than most rivals.

Summary

The 2019 Pathfinder has a great engine, good ride and handling, grippy all-wheel drive, and average fuel mileage. The optional third row has more room than other mid-size crossovers, and it has plenty of bins and cupholders. It’s quite safe, almost ideal for a family that wants their crossover SUV to look like a truck.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.
Random ’special qualification’ rebates — i.e., for new college grads only; for customers trading in a specific type of car.  Ask your dealer Representative for more information on ’special qualification’ rebates.

CarQuotes Estimated Dealer Price

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.

Options

This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.

 

Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
