2005 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4WD
Add a part-time 4-wheel drive system to the XE and you get the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder XE 4WD, with more room, an extra third row of seats, and a powerful 4.0-liter, 270-hp DOHC V6 and new 5-speed automatic transmission. Front and rear independent double wishbone suspension improves handling, and the 2005 Pathfinder XE 4WD comes with 4-wheel ABS brakes, traction and stability control, a tire pressure monitor, and 16-inch alloy wheels. Standard dual front airbags can be supplemented by side impact bags for each row.
For the cheapest of the Pathfinders, you still get a good set of features, including power windows, locks, and mirrors, cruise control, a trip computer, tachometer, intermittent front and rear wipers, a CD player, security system, and enough storage compartments and holders to keep a family happy on long trips. A roof rack and trailer hitch (up to 6000 pounds capacity) are standard, and the small 16 cubic foot cargo area expand to 79 cubic feet with both rear rows and the front passenger seat folded down. Drivers of the 2005 Pathfinder XE 4WD seem to like its power and roominess, but complain about the cheap-looking materials and low 15/21 mpg.
2005 Nissan Pathfinder XE
2005 brings a much needed revamp to the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder XE, the base trim in the SUV lineup. The rear-wheel drive SUV is six inches longer and has added a cramped third row that folds flat, along with the split-folding second row and folding front passenger seat, expanding the 16 cubic foot trunk to 79 cubic feet. The 2005 Pathfinder XE doesn't look like a base model, with its power windows, locks, and mirrors, trip computer, intermittent front and rear wipers, CD player, security system, and cruise control.
With a class-leading 4.0-liter DOHC V6 engine that puts out 270-hp and 291 lb-ft of torque, the 2005 Pathfinder XE rides on 16-inch alloy wheels and features a new 5-speed automatic, ABS brakes, dual front airbags, a tire monitor, and traction and stability control. A roof rack and trailer hitch are standard, allowing you to load up the most of the house for long trips. The 16/23 mpg might keep those trips short, however. The only offered option are side impact airbags for all three rows. Owners like the car-like handling, style, extra power, and storage flexibility of the 2005 Pathfinder XE, but complain about the limited rear seat legroom and some road and engine noise.
