The Rock Creek Edition comes to the SV and SL trims.
The Nissan Pathfinder is a midsize, three-row crossover utility vehicle with room for up to eight. Its Nissan’s largest crossover, dwarfed only by the rugged Armada SUV. Even so, the Pathfinder holds its own, as it delivers ample interior room, decent storage space, and surprisingly generous towing capacity.
You’ll find a crowded field of competing models, as most manufacturers field their best vehicles. This shouldn’t be surprising as crossovers are the current family vehicle of choice.
Among the many competitors are the Ford Explorer, Kia Telluride, Chevrolet Traverse, Toyota Highlander, Dodge Durango, Volkswagen Atlas, Buick Enclave, and the Honda Pilot. Not to be forgotten are the Subaru Ascent, Mazda CX-9, and the Hyundai Santa Fe XL.
2019 Nissan Pathfinder Overview
Nissan offers the 2019 Pathfinder in four trims: S ($31,530), SV ($34,370), SL ($38,020), and Platinum ($42,870). Add $1,045 for the destination charge. If you prefer all-wheel drive instead of the standard front-wheel drive, then you’ll add $1,690 to your beginning cost.
For 2019, the Pathfinder gains a pair of Rock Creek Edition models for the SV and SL trims. A $995 upgrade, the Rock Creek Editions bundle special badging, leather seats, with unique exterior and interior trim.
Our test model was the Pathfinder SV 4WD Rock Creek Edition. It came with Rock Creek Edition crossbars ($395) and carpeted floor mats ($300), and a special tech package ($980). The various bundled packages resulted in a $1,315 discount, which brought this model’s final price to $39,675. Typically, well-equipped models in this segment yield for at least $40,000. The most you’ll pay for any Pathfinder is $47,700, and that’s before any incentives are taken.
Nissan Pathfinder Highlights
As with any model in this class, there is a lot to consider. We’ll break it down and pay special attention to the Rock Creek package. Our driving impressions are in the section that follows.
1. The Pathfinder fits neatly into the utility vehicle universe. It is one of two midsize offerings — the Murano with its two rows and room for five is the other choice. At the top of the SUV universe is the Armada, a traditional SUV along the lines of a Chevrolet Tahoe or Toyota Sequoia. The other models include the Kicks, Rogue Sport, and Rogue, the latter now its most popular vehicle. If you like Nissan, this automaker makes it easy to stay within the brand.
2. Mainstream all the way. The Pathfinder’s four trims ensure everyone can find something they want, along with premium features on some models. Standard exterior features include LED daytime running lights and aluminum-alloy wheels. Inside, cloth seats, three-zone climate control, and easy-to-move seats are included. The list of upgrades includes automatic headlights, fog lamps, heated side mirrors, 20-inch wheels, a panoramic moonroof, and an automatic liftgate. Interior upgrades include leather seats, a heated steering wheel, heated and ventilated front seats, heated outboard second-row seats, and stainless steel kick plates.
