Nissan Pathfinder Overview

However, as the Nissan Pathfinder evolved through the years, it became larger and more refined. Its designers made changes that allowed it to walk the line between suburban family runabout and macho, rugged rock crawler. Now the Pathfinder is broad-shouldered enough to fit such new-millennium amenities as a fold-flat third-row seat, powerful V6 and V8 engines and a 6,000-pound towing capacity, while remaining tidy enough to fit easily in a standard garage space. It's also one of the rare SUVs to switch from unibody construction back to a truck-based body-on-frame setup and nissan pathfinder accessories, creating a sturdier truck but also adding weight. Some sport-utility vehicles appeal to truck people, while others appeal to car people.
