7/1/2013
Nissan recently announced that its 2014 Pathfinder midsize crossover, which was redesigned for the 2013 model year, will have a starting suggested retail price (MSRP) of less than $30,000. The newest, fourth-generation, 7-passenger Pathfinder, which now features what Nissan describes as better styling, comfort and fuel economy, will include a Hybrid version that will be introduced in the fall. Pricing for the Hybrid model has not been disclosed.

In addition to the as-yet-to-be-priced new Pathfinder Hybrid, the 2014 Pathfinder, which is now built on a unibody or car-based platform, will be offered in four trim levels--S, SV, SL, and Platinum--that also are available in 2- or 4-wheel drive (2WD or 4WD). The Pathfinder S 2WD with a 3.5-liter V-6 engine has a starting MSRP of $28,700, while the Platinum 4WD model is priced at $41,200. These MSRPs do not include an $845 destination and handling charge.
