2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid

Hybrid System

The 2.5-liter 4-cylinder engine is supercharged—meaning that there’s 250 hp generated by Pathfinder’s Hybrid system. The 15 kW power-regenerating electric motor is powered by lithium-ion cells, and the Intelligent Dual Clutch System efficiently manages power from both the electric motor and the engine. To save power, the gas engine only kicks in when it needs to, and switches to the electric motor to conserve fuel when you start-up, coast, or stop.

Confidence:  It’s All About Traction.

Class-exclusive selectable 2WD, 4WD, and Auto Mode

No other SUV [*] in this class gives you the choice of 2WD, 4WD, and Auto Modes. Turn the All-Mode 4x4i Dial, located just behind the gearshift, to lock into 4WD on rough terrain and in varying weather. Turn it again to switch into 2WD for better mileage. The intuitive Auto Mode senses slippery roads or rough terrain and automatically adjusts power to each wheel. When things smooth out, it switches back to 2WD.

7 Premium Seats. Yes, 7.

Best In Class Passenger Volume

Fill it up with seven passengers, and the Pathfinder still has room for up to 16 cubic feet of cargo [*]. Drop the 3rd-row and you’ve got more than 47 cubic feet, or drop both the 2nd- and 3rd- rows and you’ve got a virtually flat space with 79.8 cubic feet of cargo for your seriously big loads. There’s also a large under-floor storage area that keeps valuables out of sight. It’s easily accessed whether the 3rd-row is folded or upright, giving added cargo room even when you have seven passengers along for the ride. [**] [*Ward’s Segmentation.

Heavy loading of the SUV with cargo, especially on the roof, will affect handling and stability of the vehicle.]

Nothing but the Best

The Pathfinder Hybrid seats seven passengers, and everybody travels in style. Best-in-Class front headroom and legroom, [*] as well as class-exclusive reclining third-row seats, [*] are all standard. Rich leather-appointed seats (front- and second-rows), a wood-tone trim, and a Tri-Zone entertainment system with three screens are all available options for the ultimate in sophisticated adventure [**]. [*Ward’s Segmentation. MY14 Pathfinder vs. 2014 and 2013 Large Cross/Utility Class. Passengers should not ride in the reclined position while the vehicle is in motion.] [** Tri-zone operation requires compatible auxiliary media system. See Owner’s Manual for details. Tri-zone entertainment system is only available with Platinum Premium trim.]

2014 Path Hybrid Interior

EZ Flex™ Seating System Featuring Latch and Glide® Technology

The spacious 2nd-row moves forward and backward up to 5½ inches for excellent access to the 3rd-row. [*] Speaking of the 3rd-row, Pathfinder Hybrid offers reclining seats back there, and they’re big enough to comfortably seat two full-sized adults. [*Ward’s Segmentation.

Cargo Space

Pathfinder Hybrid still has room for up to 16 cubic feet of cargo. Drop the 3rd-row and you’ve got more than 47 cubic feet, or drop both the 2nd- and 3rd-rows and you’ve got a virtually flat space with 79.8 cubic feet of cargo for your seriously big loads. There’s also a large under-floor storage area that keeps valuables out of sight. It’s easily accessed whether the 3rd-row is folded or upright, giving added cargo room even when you have seven passengers along for the ride. [*Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and distribution. Always secure all cargo. Heavy loading of the SUV with cargo, especially on the roof, will affect handling and stability of the vehicle.]

Around View® Monitor [*]

Using four cameras, the available class-exclusive Around View® Monitor (AVM) creates a composite image of the 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid from above and displays it on the touch-screen monitor. [*] This helps visually show the vehicle’s position relative to the lines around parking spaces and adjacent objects, allowing the driver to maneuver into parking spots with more ease. [*Ward’s Large Cross/Utility Market Segmentation. MY14 Pathfinder vs. 2013 Large Cross/Utility Class.Parking aid/convenience feature. Cannot completely eliminate blind spots or warn of moving objects. May not detect every object. Always check surroundings before moving vehicle. Not a substitute for proper backing procedures. Always turn to check what is behind you before backing up.]

Tri-Zone Entertainment

When the kids are happy, you are happy, and that’s where the available Tri-Zone Entertainment System comes in. [*] Up front, the driver and passenger can enjoy music. 2nd-row passengers can watch movies, play video games, plug in a laptop, all on dual 7-inch DVD monitors, listening on two wireless headsets. The entire system can be controlled through the touch-screen display on the dash. [Tri-zone operation requires compatible auxiliary media system. See Owner’s Manual for details. Tri-zone entertainment system is only available with Platinum Premium trim.]

 

The Evolution of Safety

Vehicle Dynamic Control (VDC)

Hit a slick spot in a corner and suddenly you may be going in a direction you did not intend to be going. In these situations, VDC monitors steering and braking. If needed, it responds by reducing engine output and/or applying brake pressure to specific wheels. [*] [*VDC, which should remain on when driving except when freeing the vehicle from mud or snow, cannot prevent accidents due to abrupt steering, carelessness, or dangerous driving techniques. Always drive safely]

Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)

In panic-braking situations, the ABS is able to pump the brakes faster than you possibly can, helping to prevent wheel lockup and allowing you to continue to steer while braking heavily.

Brake Assist/Electronic Brake force Distribution (EBD)

If you need to slam on the brakes, Brake Assist detects how hard you’re braking, and if it senses you are in an emergency, it helps to apply maximum braking force. The EBD system is designed to send extra force to the rear brakes when there’s extra weight in the back.

Traction Control System (TCS)

The standard TCS means you won’t be wasting power just spinning the tires. When it senses drive-wheel spin, it responds by reducing throttle or applying brake pressure to specific wheels.
