(2005 model shown)


A larger and restyled Nissan Pathfinder debuted last year that's wrapped in bold exterior styling with cues borrowed from the larger Armada sport-utility vehicle. It rides on a modified version of the same tubular ladder-frame platform as the Armada SUV and Titan pickup. A 250-horsepower, 4.0-liter V-6 engine is fitted to a five-speed automatic transmission and delivers ample acceleration. Rear-wheel-drive is standard, and a choice of either a part-time or an auto-engaging full-time 4WD system is available. Four-wheel disc anti-lock power brakes with Active Brake Limited Slip and Electronic Brakeforce Distribution, along with Vehicle Dynamic Control are offered for added on-road stability, and an optional off-road system maximizes grip over rugged terrain. The Pathfinder includes a four-wheel independent double-wishbone suspension for crisp handling and good ride comfort. Inside, split-fold second- and third-row seats and a fold-down front passenger seat provide 64 different seating and cargo configurations. Front-side and side-curtain airbags with rollover protection, a navigation system, rear-seat DVD player, and a power sunroof are optional.  Changes for 2006 include newly available Sirius or XM satellite radio, a new exterior color, Majestic Blue, available leather seats on SE models, Desert Leather newly offered on Off-Road versions, and a six-disc CD changer added to the SE Comfort Package.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
