Cargo and Comfort

Place your foot under the rear of the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder to utilize the motion activated liftgate to easily  store your cargo in the Pathfinder without having to put everything down and open it. 

As for space, with the second and third rows folded down, there is up to 79.5 cubic feet of cargo space. 

The new Pathfinder allows you to also stay comfortable regardless of the weather with the Tri-Zone Climate Control System and Climate Controlled (heated and cooled) front seats. There is also the option of having a heated steering wheel, for extra cold days. 

Power and Capability

The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder features a 3.5-L Direct Injection Gasoline V6 engine. This engine delivers impressive and noticeable power at both high and low speeds. The Nissan Pathfinder is even capable of towing up to 6,000 pounds (when properly equipped). Paired with an XTRONIC® CVT, there is always a seamless transmission of power. CVTs differ from standard automatic transmission. They have fewer moving parts, which means they will experience less wear and tear, working efficiently much longer. 

The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder is equipped with Intelligent 4-wheel drive system, depending on the trim level you choose. When equipped, you can choose your drive mode. Keep it in 2WD for normal road conditions. When the weather turns colder, switch to  Auto Mode to continuously monitor the road and adjust the power as needed in case of snow or rain. 4WD Lock mode keeps you in 4WD for as long as you need it, i.e. when driving in the snow or in sand on the beach. 

When equipped with Intelligent 4WD, you’ll be able to utilize other features that help you out. Hill Start Assist prevents you from moving backwards as you drive up a hill, and Hill Descent Control makes going down steep hills more controlled and manageable.
