The Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid was first introduced in 2013 alongside the fourth-generation Pathfinder. The Pathfinder Hybrid is currently available in both two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive, and what’s great about the Pathfinder Hybrid is that it can seat seven, giving more room for passengers and cargo. Powered by a 2.5L 4-cylinder engine capable of 250 horsepower, the electric part of the motor is handled by a lithium-ion battery placed under the third-row seat, which allows more space for both passengers and cargo as well, unlike many other hybrid models. It uses a dual-clutch system to handle power distribution from both the gasoline and electric motors. Read more about the Pathfinder Hybrid here.
The Pathfinder Hybrid comes in five different configurations. It starts with the SV, which comes in at just over $35,000, and features electrically-driven regenerative brakes, LED taillights, and Nissan’s EZ Flex seating system, featuring latch-n-glide technology. The SL is the next-highest submodel and features all the SV does plus fog lights, a powered liftgate with position memory, a remote engine starting system and first-and-second row leather-appointed seats. The SL Premium features all that plus a dual panorama sunroof, a tow hitch with a seven-pin wiring harness, a 120-volt power outlet and a Bose-powered audio system. The Platinum is next in line and features 20″ aluminum-alloy wheels, Nissan’s hard drive navigation system, a class-exclusive around-view monitor and climate controlled front seats. The most expensive Pathfinder Hybrid, the Platinum Premium, comes in at $45,250 and features all of the ones from the past four models including a tri-zone entertainment system and rear auxiliary audio/video jacks.
The nice thing about the Pathfinder Hybrid is that it’s the same size and overall weight as the Nissan Pathfinder available today. As a crossover sport utility vehicle, it’s smaller than most standard SUV’s, which means it’ll likely be a bit cheaper to ship. Auto shippers tend to increase the price on vehicles that are heavier or larger, as they cost more to transport them (particularly across long distances), and the heavier the vehicle typically the more you’ll end up paying. As the Pathfinder and the Pathfinder Hybrid are both built on car-based platforms, as opposed to a pickup platform like most SUV’s, their curb weight is a bit lighter and their frame a bit smaller, giving carriers an easier time moving them.
