Pierre Loing, Vice President of Product Planning at Nissan Americas, said “The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder was completely redesigned to provide best-in-class standard towing capacity with cargo space for the entire family, and neither were compromised in pursuit of class-leading fuel efficiency. This honor solidifies the Pathfinder’s unparalleled versatility, and we sincerely thank MotorWeek for their recognition.”
The Drivers’ Choice Awards recognize the best models in a wide range of lifestyle categories. The awards are determined based on superior performance, technology, practicality, dollar value, and driving experience.
The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is the 4th generation of Pathfinder. It has a completely redesigned chassis and body in conjunction with a class-exclusive Xtronic CVT transmission. It attains class-leading fuel economy of 26 mpg highway, EPA estimated. The ride is more comfortable than that of the outgoing model.
