Every trim model in the 2019 Pathfinder lineup offers Intelligent 4x4 drive. This system is designed to maximize traction on rugged surfaces including snow, mud, grass, and gravel. Drive modes are easily selected by turning an electronic rotary dial on the driver's console. The 4WD Lock Mode is available for harsher conditions. The 2019 Pathfinder features Auto Mode to adjust the torque distribution based on real-time conditions. Only select Toyota Highlander trims offer Dynamic Torque Control or On-Demand AWD.

Along with 4WD, this powerful Nissan SUV offers Hill Descent Control. The Pathfinder shifts smoothly through the gears thanks to an Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) system. In contrast, the Toyota Highlander comes with an electronically controlled automatic transmission that only offers to six or eight gears. While select trims offer an Electronically Controlled Continuously Variable Transmission (ECVT), we think you'll find the Nissan Xtronic system to be the superior transmission.

Digital Technology

Standard in the new Pathfinder is an 8.0-inch infotainment system. NissanConnect provides a full menu of applications and available GPS navigation and SiriusXM Traffic. Nissan has your next road trip covered. Audiophiles will enjoy the Bose® 13-speaker sound system as well as the HD Radio and SiriusXM Satellite Radio. Highlander drivers will have to make do with a 12-speaker JBL GreenEdge sound system. You can hear the difference. The 2019 Pathfinder also bests the 2019 Highlander when it comes to rear seat entertainment. Backseat passengers will enjoy two 8.0-Inch monitors, wireless remote controls, and headphones. The Highlander's rear entertainment is only a single 9.0-inch display that flips down from overhead. Apply for Nissan lease deals today!
