Nissan Pathfinder vs. Toyota Highlander

When comparably equipped, the Nissan Pathfinder is a better value than the Toyota Highlander. The base Highlander comes standard with a less expensive, but also less powerful, four-cylinder engine that we don't recommend. Once you equip the Highlander with a V6 to make an apples-to-apples comparison, its price advantage goes away. Although our editors still preferred the Highlander, those looking to get more car for the money should keep the Pathfinder in mind.

Nissan Pathfinder vs. Honda Pilot

The Nissan Pathfinder faces tough competition when compared to the Honda Pilot. The Pathfinder gets slightly better fuel economy, and while the MSRP is higher than the Pilot's, you're likely to see greater discounts on average. On the other hand, the Pilot starts out less expensive, can seat an extra person (bringing the passenger capacity to eight), has better infotainment technology and is a little more engaging to drive.

Nissan Pathfinder vs. Ford Explorer

The Pathfinder comes equipped with more standard features than the Explorer, including keyless ignition and tri-zone climate control. It also keeps the shopping simple, with a single, powerful engine. But if you prefer a more traditional boxy SUV look, the Ford Explorer has got that covered. It has a choice of three engines, but the best one, a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6, is only available on more expensive higher trims.

Is the Nissan Pathfinder a good car?

Are you looking for an SUV with a classy, upscale interior and a V6 engine with plenty of power for towing? If so, the Pathfinder strikes an excellent balance of quality and utility and should be on your list of vehicles to consider. It also offers one of the sharpest infotainment interfaces around. The 8-inch touchscreen ranks high among rivals, backed by crisp graphics, fast response times and an intuitive dial-and-button controller. On the other hand, the Pathfinder's third row is less roomy than those of its competitors, and the cargo capacity is below average.

Does the Nissan Pathfinder have good MPG?

A front-wheel-drive Pathfinder gets an EPA-estimated 23 mpg combined (20 city/27 highway). Opting for all-wheel drive lowers these estimates by 1 or 2 mpg. The combined mpg number is slightly above average for vehicles in this class, and while the difference may only be a mile or so per gallon, it can make a big difference in an SUV. If you want better fuel economy, you could consider the Toyota Highlander Hybrid, though it costs nearly $6,000 more.

Does the Nissan Pathfinder have good resale value?

If you're ready to buy, you're probably wondering about the Nissan Pathfinder's resale value. How much will a 2018 Nissan Pathfinder be worth in two or five years — or whenever you decide to sell? Check out the Edmunds True Cost to Own (TCO) calculator. It includes projected annual depreciation over the first five years of ownership based on Edmunds' robust market transaction data.
