When the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder goes on sale later this month, it will start at $29,095, including an $825 destination charge.
That means the new Pathfinder costs less than the outgoing 2012 Pathfinder ($30,115). It’s also less expensive than the 2013 Chevy Traverse ($31,335), 2013 Honda Pilot ($30,250), 2013 Toyota Highlander ($29,715) and 2013 Dodge Durango ($29,990).
The Pathfinder is now, officially, a car-based, three-row crossover. Previously, it was a traditional body-on-frame SUV. The 2013 Pathfinder gets great gas mileage for its class, estimated at 20/26/22 mpg city/highway/combined with front-wheel drive and 19/25/21 mpg with all-wheel drive.
A Pathfinder Platinum Premium edition adds dual panoramic moonroofs and dual 7-inch displays mounted into the rear of the front seat headrests. The trim costs $42,295. The new Pathfinder goes on sale by late October.
