2008 Nissan Pathfinder

For 2008, the Nissan Pathfinder midsize SUV adds the first V8 engine in its history with an available 5.6 L, 300 hp model in SE and LE trims.  In addition, the Pathfinder gets some new exterior accents along with some high-tech features that include Bluetooth and a 9.3 gig Music Box hard drive in the LE.  This SUV comes in 7 trims.

All trims feature a standard 4.0 L, 266 hp V6 engine with 5 speed automatic transmission.  Gas mileage comes out to around 13 mpg in the city and 20 on the highway.  This model has 4 doors, seats 7, and tows up to either 6000 or 7000 lbs. depending on the trim.

Overall, drivers like the solid powertrain and good handling.  However, the ride could use some improvement and interior room gets a bit tight once you reach full seating capacity.  In any event, the Pathfinder has taken some positive steps in the last few years and should continue to maintain its respected position in the SUV market.
