2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid Debut
The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid doesn’t compromise performance or interior space.
Nissan is kicking off the 2013 New York Auto Show with the debut of its 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid, designed to enhance fuel economy and reduce emissions, all without sacrificing performance or cargo space. A supercharged 2.5-liter gasoline engine and a 15 kW electric motor paired with a compact Lithium-ion battery powers the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid. This combination delivers 250 horsepower, only ten horsepower down from the 3.5-liter V-6 engine in the non-hybrid variant. Looking at the design, the Pathfinder Hybrid has a wide chrome grille with aerodynamic headlights, as well as an available Dual Panorama Moonroof. The interior boasts three rows of premium leather seats, with heated front and second row seating.
Who It’s For
There’s great competition for an adventurous vehicle with active families, and with the introduction of the new Hybrid model, the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid falls in nicely with that title. With comfortable seating for seven passengers and powerful engine, the new Pathfinder can haul up to 3,500 pounds with the proper equipment and has an estimated 26 mpg combined fuel rating. With great styling and green features, the 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid is great for those long road trips to new places as well as those stop-and-go drives in the city.
The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid features the available class-exclusive Around View Monitor, and like it, here are other standout features on the 2014 model .
- Advanced Drive Assist Display
- Nissan Navigation System with NavTraffic and NavWeather
- Hill Start Assist
What We Think
The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid retains all the abilities of its fully gas-powered variant, including its towing capacity and go-anywhere attitude. The hybrid capabilities alone make this vehicle more attractive, but when combined with the new styling and larger cargo and seating room, it continues to stand out.
