The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
6.4
8.2
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Nissan Pathfinder is a workhorse SUV that also offers decent comfort and an impressive feature set. If off-road capability is a top requirement, the brawny 2011 Toyota 4Runner is a good choice—with surprisingly good road manners to boot.
