2015 Nissan Pathfinder vs. Its Competition

2015 Nissan Pathfinder

The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder is a large, family-friendly crossover.

The Toyota Highlander and Honda Pilot are similar but have less usable space inside.

The Dodge Durango is more rugged than the Pathfinder, and the Chevrolet Traverse weighs significantly more–a burden than can be felt from the driver's seat.

The toughest competition comes from the Ford Explorer, which drives well and offers loads of safety tech.
