A Breakdown Of The Nissan Pathfinder’s Top Competitors

2017 Pathfinder

The new Pathfinder is a great car that is affordable. In terms of competition, the car is up against the Ford Explorer and the Honda Pilot. Both of these cars have similar specs and we’ll take a look at them below

Honda Pilot

The Honda Pilot underwent some major changes last year. These changes involved a completely new exterior that made it look less like a box and more like a sleek machine. The car comes with a V6. 3.8L engine and is available in 5 trim levels. On 4 of these trim levels – LX, EX, EX-L, and Touring – all-wheel drive is available and they operate on a six-speed automatic transmission. The top most trim – Elite – comes with all-wheel drive and a nine-speed automatic. The nine-speed automatic makes the car more powerful, saves fuel and improves various driving characteristics. The car delivers 280 horsepower and 262 pound-feet of torque.

Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer also underwent changes in 2016 and comes with a new engine – a 2.3L four-cylinder engine – that delivers 270 horsepower and 300 pound feet of torque. If you’re looking for more power then you have to go for the range-topping EcoBoost option that offers 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. The 3.2L, V6 engine option offers 290 horsepower option and 255 pound-feet of torque.

The only cars that compare to the Nissan Pathfinder are the top versions of these models, which are more expensive. The Pathfinder is a good car overall and comes at a better price than both these cars. You can check out the Pathfinder at Coast Nissan.
