2008 model year changes

A V8 engine is available in the Nissan Pathfinder for the first time for 2008; the existing V6 is still available, too, and both engines can be equipped with rear- or four-wheel drive. The Pathfinder also gets a new look in front and in back, and new wheel designs and two new exterior colors--White Frost and Mocha--join the lineup along with one new interior color, Russet. Inside, there's a redesigned center-console area, a restyled instrument panel, a new reclining second-row seat, and illuminated switchgear. The Intelligent Key entry system, a navigation system with Music Box hard-drive system, and a heated steering wheel are among the new options.

Special features for 2008

With a sturdy fully boxed frame and four-wheel drive, combined with a four-wheel independent suspension, the 2008 Nissan Pathfinder's offers a good combination of serious towing, hauling, and off-roading ability with a good ride on-road. And now that it gets the same big V8 as the larger Armada, the mid-size Pathfinder becomes both quicker and more able, with towing capacity now up to 7,000 pounds.
Quick on the street and powerful in the dirt, the 2008 Nissan Pathfinder is a four door SUV available in three trims, in either two or four wheel drive.
