Expert Quotes:

20 mpg city, 26 highway (front wheel drive); 19/25 (4WD)
U.S. EPA

More impressive, it’s a massive 5/4mpg city/highway improvement over the outgoing Pathfinder.
Truck Trend




The Pathfinder earns impressive EPA ratings for its class--20 mpg city, 26 highway with front-wheel drive, or 19/25 with four-wheel drive.

Nissan calls these figures best in class, although of models with a third-row seat, only the base Ford Explorer, with front-wheel drive and the 2.0T (EcoBoost) four-cylinder engine, does better; it gets 20/28 mpg.

The base four-cylinder Toyota Highlander also comes close, at 20/25 mpg, and the Highlander Hybrid has it solidly beat at 28/28 mpg. However the Highlander Hybrid starts at around $40k, just short of where a fully loaded Pathfinder tops out.

And if you wanted to extend your shopping up into the luxury brands, the Lexus RX 450h also does significantly better than the Pathfinder, while the Mercedes-Benz GL 350 Bluetec beats the Nissan by 1 mpg on the highway.

Conclusion

If you're limiting your budget but want a V-6, the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is the most fuel-efficient three-row crossover you can get.

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.
