The Pathfinder gains a hybrid powertrain in both 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive models.
Good fuel economy; spacious interior; 5000lb towing capacity; third row seating; competitive pricing; available hybrid drivetrain
The Pathfinder remains a very good value for the money. Between its seating capacity and fuel economy the Pathfinder makes a good value play. While previous Pathfinders competed with truck-like SUVs like the Toyota 4Runner, the 2014 Pathfinder aims instead to compete more closely with crossover vehicles such as the Toyota Highlander, bringing more space and refinement to the market at a slight cost to seldom used off-road capabilities. The new-for-2014 hybrid makes 26 combined mpg, impressive fuel economy for any SUV, particularly one that can haul up to 7 passengers.
