2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid

Looking to get the utility of a crossover with a little boost in mileage? The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid is a compelling option that costs a few thousand dollars more than a comparable V6 model and offers close to 25 percent better fuel economy.

When it comes to fuel economy, the light hybrid set-up of the Pathfinder Hybrid won't offer Prius-level numbers, but its 26 mpg (25 city/28 hwy) combined is a 24 percent increase over the gas model, according to Nissan's calculations. The hybrid system partners a lithium-ion-powered 15 kW electric motor with a supercharged 2.5-liter engine through an Intelligent Dual Clutch System (one motor/two clutch parallel system). The IDCS manages output from both power units, providing 250 net hp and 243 lb-ft of torque—quite comparable to the Pathfinder 3.5-liter V6 model's 260 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque, only with less fuel consumption.

The lithium-ion battery is mounted underneath the third-row seating, so the hybrid is able to offer the same interior space and legroom of the gas Pathfinder. That battery is charged via regenerative braking.

Other equipment on the Pathfinder Hybrid includes an Xtronic CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission), the available ALL-MODE 4x4-i system with selectable 2WD, Auto or 4WD Lock modes, and LED taillights. The 4.2-inch color Advanced Drive-Assist Display includes hybrid-specific information about gas/electric motor output and regnerative braking energy. The Pathfinder Hybrid offers standard towing of 3,500 lbs, when properly equipped.

The base SV 2WD trim of the 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid starts at $35,970 after $860 destination fee. For comparison, the comparably equipped SV 2WD 3.5-liter V6 Pathfinder starts at $32,970 after destination.The first chart below gives you pricing for all Hybrid trim levels, while the second chart shows gas Pathfinder pricing. All prices are before the $860 destination fee is tacked on.
