Power and Capability

Notice the impressive power and efficiency at both high and low speeds  in the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder, featuring a 3.5-L Direct Injection Gasoline V6 engine. The engine is paired with an XTRONIC® CVT, which provides a seamless transmission of power. CVTs have few moving parts and work differently from a typical automatic transmission. Over time, they experience less wear and tear, and will work more efficiently 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.
