  • 2017 Nissan Pathfinder

    Nissan’s fourth-generation Pathfinder has received some updates for the 2017 model year. The updates are significant and give the vehicle a fresh new look as well as more power and a host of extra safety gear. The most exciting of these updates is the new V-6. It still displaces 3.5 liters but now delivers 284 horsepower and 259 pound-feet of torque, up from 260 hp and 240 lb-ft previously. These aren’t exactly the most thrilling numbers but they do mean the Pathfinder can now tow up to 6,000 lb (when properly equipped), or about 1,000 lb more than before. Sadly, the vehicle is...

    In the old days, SUVs were crude, truck-derived vehicles, purchased by those with a need to go where the busses don’t run, or a need to get from point A to point B regardless of weather. Families bought station wagons, or later, minivans. Then the SUV and crossover craze hit, and suddenly...

    We already have a pretty good idea of what the new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder will look like thanks to the unveiling of a thinly-veiled concept at both the recent Detroit and Chicago auto shows. What we really don’t know is what the new seven-seat SUV will be like to drive. Better yet, what it...

  • 2012 Nissan Pathfinder concept

    We already brought you the first images and details for Nissan’s next-generation Pathfinder SUV. The vehicle made its official world debut today at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show, and we now have the first live photos of the new SUV. The particular vehicle on display is a design buck, which means its interior is not yet complete, however, the exterior is pretty much what we’ll see in showrooms come this fall. As previously reported, the new Pathfinder will enter the 2013 model year with a new car-like platform that it will share with the recently revealed 2013 Infiniti JX as well as a...

    271,000 Nissan, Infiniti SUVs Recalled For Potential Steering Failure

    Corrosion is the enemy of all cars, even modern ones, but particularly cars in the north. Road salt, water, snow, and ice combine to erode metal and bubble paint, making an eyesore of a car--and sometimes doing much worse. In the case of the 271,000 Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti QX4 SUVs recalled...

    Nissan reviewing U.S. diesel plans

    Diesel engine sales have stagnated in the U.S. due largely to lingering perceptions of the clattering, foul smelling contraptions of the 1970s and earlier. It hasn’t helped that many carmakers have been reluctant to even offer them because of the relatively high cost of emissions...

  • 2009 Nissan Maxima

    Diesel engine sales have stagnated in the U.S. because of lingering perceptions of the clattering, foul-smelling contraptions of the 1970s and earlier. Many carmakers have been reluctant to even offer them in America because of the cost of emissions certification and small profit margins, but Renault-Nissan have just announced their first-ever V6 diesel engine and it will be coming to the U.S. in the Maxima sedan. Many other Renault-Nissan vehicles will also get the powerplant, which is rated at 235hp (175kW) from its 3.0L displacement. Estimates put the diesel engine's fuel consumption at...
