It may be getting a bit long in the tooth, but the 2008 Nissan Pathfinder is still cutting-edge when it comes to the features list.

Standard features on the 2008 Nissan Pathfinder vary significantly across the trim levels, but even the base S comes with a respectable list of features. ConsumerGuide finds that the base Nissan Pathfinder S comes with a "tilt steering wheel, cruise control...height-adjustable driver seat w/lumbar adjustment," and "2nd- and 3rd-row split folding seats," along with full power accessories. Moving up to the SE trim on the Nissan 2008 Pathfinder, Edmunds says to expect "a roof rack, 17-inch alloy wheels, a power driver seat, a 7-inch screen with multi-information display, a back-up camera, dual-zone climate control and a CD/MP3 player with an auxiliary input jack." For those who plan on getting dirty in their Nissan Pathfinder, the SE Off-Road trim boasts "exclusive off-road shocks and tires, skid plates, Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist, plus a moonroof and Bose stereo," according to Edmunds. At the top of the Nissan Pathfinder lineup, the "Pathfinder LE shares the moonroof and stereo," Edmunds writes, but it also adds "leather, wood trim and power seats."

The 2008 Nissan Pathfinder offers the latest features, but many are bundled in more expensive packages.

Even with a long standard features list, the designers at Nissan have decided that 2008 Nissan Pathfinder owners should be able to add more to their SUVs. Accordingly, they offer a variety of options packages, which The Auto Channel appreciates, because "Nissan has a no-frills approach to the most basic trims, meaning you don't get much of an interior if you don't buy some of their offered packages." ConsumerGuide lists some of the most noteworthy options bundles as a Premium Package on the SE trim that includes "power sunroof, Bose sound system," and "universal garage door opener." All trim levels but the S can also be upgraded with a DVD entertainment system, and the LE boasts the Nissan 2008 Navigation Package that adds, appropriately, a "navigation system, wireless cell pone link, hard drive, [and] keyless access and starting," according to ConsumerGuide.

Edmunds adds that the hard drive features a "9.3GB 'music server'" that can store and play music files over the Nissan Pathfinder's stereo.
