The 2016 Nissan Pathfinder is a large three-row crossover SUV. It’s a very useful vehicle, with seating for seven. It’s not quite the Pathfinder you might expect, if you haven’t driven one in a few years.
The Pathfinder has undergone a few big transitions in its career as a people hauler. In its latest edition, it’s given up on its truck-based SUV roots to become a more refined crossover utility vehicle.
Today’s Pathfinder offers front-wheel drive as standard, and happily sacrifices some of its previous towing and rough-terrain abilities for family-friendly comfort features that center it squarely in the mid-size utility vehicle segment.
