Not shortly after the 2013 redesigned Pathfinder was launched, Nissan is unveiling its 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid. It packs all the same features of the standard crossover but offers slightly better fuel economy.
The new hybrid has a 2.5-liter supercharged engine that is paired with a lithium-ion and 15kW electric motor. It can produce 250 horsepower and 243 pound-feet of torque, which are ten less horsepower but three more pound-feet than the standard. The hybrid has a combined 26 mile per gallon rating and a 25 mpg city and 27 mpg highway. These, of course, are still estimates. On a full tank, the cruising range of the Pathfinder Hybrid is up to 526 miles, something to be excited about!
The interior of the Pathfinder Hybrid remains the same, not compromise on roominess or comfort. The cargo space and passenger space is the same as its sibling. Official pricing has not been set yet, but Nissan said it might be around $3,000 more than the standard Pathfinder. For a hybrid that doesn’t compromise on space or comfort, $3,000 more than its brother is nothing!
