2017 Nissan Pathfinder

It doesn’t look all that much different, but Nissan’s 3-row midsize SUV receives some notable changes for 2017. By the way, that’s not California’s famous coastal haze in the background; it’s forest-fire smoke.

Scion iMIn a previous post based on a July reveal of the freshened 2017 Nissan Pathfinder, we covered what’s new for the model year, along with the various trim levels and equipment offered. In a nutshell, Nissan’s 7-passenger midsize SUV has been significantly updated with revised styling, a more powerful engine, and several new features. This report covers a drive opportunity afforded us in beautiful — though at the time, smokey (due to nearby forest fires) — Monterey, California.

2017 Nissan Pathfinder

Visual refinements to Nissan’s Pathfinder for 2017 are subtle, but other changes are not, as they include a number of safety, convenience, and infotainment additions.

Nissan’s 7-passenger midsize SUV celebrates its 30th anniversary for 2017 with a “mid-cycle” update that includes a more powerful engine, higher towing capacity, a freshened appearance, and a host of newly available features.

Long Term Pathfinder

Editor Dave Hall used Consumer Guide’s long-term 2013 Nissan Pathfinder to move from one apartment to another.

Normally, the staffers here at Consumer Guide Automotive switch cars twice a week. A few days in a car is enough for an editor to observe all of the car’s behaviors, use all of its features, and spend an adequate amount of time driving it to make a good objective report. Most cars stay with us for about two weeks, meaning that four editors have the chance to thoroughly drive a vehicle, compare opinions, and come up with a verdict, which becomes the review we post on our website.

2013 Pathfinder Review

2013 Nissan Pathfinder

The Nissan Pathfinder’s 2013 redesign included the “big switch”—going from body-on-frame truck-type construction to a unibody platform. For more on this vehicle, including a drive report, pricing, and photos, check out Consumer Guide’s detailed review of the 2013 Pathfinder as well as our long-term road test. Meanwhile, here are three “yays” and “nays” based on a month’s worth of driving impressions.

2020 Toyota Highlander

Consumer Guide Automotive

Toyota’s Highlander has long been a top-seller in the hot midsize-crossover class, at least in part due to the host of accolades it has received (though wearing a Toyota badge doesn’t hurt, either.) It gets a redesign for 2020 that brings an additional 2.4 inches of wheelbase and overall length, a host of new tech features, and a decidedly more miserly Hybrid variant.
