The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you tow and off-road with the family, the 2008 Nissan Pathfinder is one of the better traditional truck-based SUVs available. If you plan to tow, a 2008 Dodge Durango with a V-8 will work nearly as well as a Tahoe or Expedition, at a lower price.
