2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid

If you've been keeping up with our long-term 2013 Nissan Pathfinder coverage, you already know that, generally speaking, we dig it. After racking up 21,000 miles (and climbing!) on our dear Sweet Brown, we've become very, very familiar with the Pathfinder package as a whole, and many of us actually prefer it over competitors like the Ford Explorer and Chevrolet Traverse.

    This ain't your daddy's Pathfinder. And that's exactly why we're welcoming one into the Autoblog long-term garage.

    Finding A New Path To Success Despite the fact that the term "crossover" has proliferated throughout the automotive market, there still isn't a clear definition of what, exactly, makes such a vehicle. And perhaps that's by the very definition of the word itself – a crossover can refer to anything that blends various elements of well-established ...

    The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder will be making its debut at April's New York Auto Show, but before that it's got to prove itself on the other side of the country.

    Report: 2013 Nissan Pathfinder engine confirmed, big deal debuting in Big Apple

    There is a lot to like about the Pathfinder Concept Nissan unveiled at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show.

Nissan also promises fuel economy improvement of about 25 percent with the production model, which would be no small ...

    1326115800

    Compared to most SUVs-turned-mommy-mobiles, the Nissan Pathfinder has had an odd 27-year existence. Like all 'utes, it's first iteration was built on a truck platform, which was then followed by a unibody second generation. But unlike the rest of the pack, the third-gen Pathfinder swapped back to a body-on-frame architecture and it's stayed that way for ...

    If automakers have learned anything from the 2011 Ford Explorer, it's that changing a popular SUV nameplate to a crossover platform won't necessarily hurt the vehicle's image (or sales numbers). Nissan is hoping to capture that same sort of magic with its Pathfinder – judging by these spy shots, the traditionally body-on-frame SUV stalwart appears ...
