Would the Nissan Pathfinder be popular if it had a diesel engine?
The Nissan Pathfinder models are currently equipped with a 284-horsepower 3.5-liter V6 with Direct Injection Gasoline™ (DIG) system and Xtronic transmission. Torque is rated at 259 lb-ft. This is why it has never been made available in ASEAN for sale. It has a large petrol engine.
What if, Nissan decided to sell this in ASEAN with a diesel engine which comes from the popular Navara series? The 2.5L turbo diesel engine in the Navara pickup delivers a healthy 190PS @ 3600 rpm and tractor pulling 450Nm of torque @ 2,000rpm which could easily give this Pathfinder driver amply power to transport 7 passengers and luggage.
Pathfinder’s stylish, adventure-ready interior includes comfortable seating for 7 and features Nissan’s innovative EZ Flex® Seating System™ with LATCH AND GLIDE®, a 2nd row tilt and glide seat that allows easy 3rd row access with a child safety seat still installed. All current 2019 Pathfinder models also include standard Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) and Nissan’s innovative Rear Door Alert(RDA) system, which can help remind owners of items that may be forgotten in the rear seat.
Also available are Intelligent Around View® Monitor (I-AVM), Bose® 13-speaker premium audio system, Dual Panorama Moonroof, Motion-Activated liftgate with liftgate position memory and NissanConnect® with Navigation and Services.
The 2019 Pathfinder is offered in 2-wheel drive and 4-wheel drive configurations.
