The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.6
7.2
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. The 2008 Toyota 4Runner isn’t as roomy or as efficient as newer crossover designs, but if you need towing or off-road capabilities, it’s a good, safe choice.
