2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid

For years, the Nissan Pathfinder has been a great choice for families and those that need an SUV with some actual room. Whether it is fitting passengers or cargo inside, the Pathfinder has some great capacity. But it’s too bad you can’t get this SUV in a hybrid version. As it turns out, you actually can. The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid is a reality this year. Let’s take a look at what you can expect from this awesome new addition to the Nissan lineup.

As for the power source of the new Pathfinder Hybrid, it comes in the form of a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine that is paired up with a small lithium ion battery. To make sure that the Pathfinder Hybrid can continue to offer the space of the traditional model, the battery is compact and located underneath the cargo area. Because of this, there is no loss in cargo capacity on the hybrid version. This is key, as the nearly 80 cubic feet of cargo space comes in handy for many.

Of course, the cargo space is when the seats are folded down. But, when they are up, the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid offers spacious seating for seven in three rows. But even with maximum passenger capacity in place, the Pathfinder still has 16 cubic feet of cargo space. So yes, you can take the kids and the gear – and get them to the destination efficiently thanks to the hybrid technology.

So how much can you actually save on fuel with the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid. Well, according to Nissan, the fuel savings is up to 24%. That’s a huge number when you consider the long distances you may be driving in the vehicle.
