New York Auto Show: 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid

All-new 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid made its debut today at the New York Auto Show, promising to blend "green" technology with comfortable seating for seven. The design is not new, which means that we will focus under the hood, where the standard 3.5-liter V6 is replaced by new supercharged 2.5-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor paired with a compact Lithium-ion (Li-ion) battery.

The electric motor delivers 15 kW and together with the gas engine provide performance similar to the conventional Pathfinder. Total output of the system is 250 hp and 243 lb-ft of torque. For those who don’t know, the standard 3.5-liter V6 delivers 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque.

The hybrid system also uses a Nissan Intelligent Dual Clutch System (one motor / two clutch parallel system) that efficiently manages power from both the electric motor and the gas engine. Positioned between the gasoline engine and the next-gen Xtronic CVT the motor also acts as a generator, conveying deceleration force from the CVT to the battery.

Watch out Toyota and Honda, there’s a new player in town: ladies and gentlemen, this is the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder. Although the first visual impact with the car doesn’t show it, the 2013 Pathfinder actually dropped 500 pounds and as a result it delivers a fuel economy of 20 mpg city/26 highway and 22 combined for the front-wheel-drive model, and 19/25/21 for the all-wheel-drive version.

This means that the new Pathfinder will be with 30 percent more fuel efficient than the outgoing model. Comparing it with the competition, the 2013 Pathfinder promises to make your neighbors jealous, as the FWD Honda Pilot is rated at 18/25/21, the Toyota Highlander at 18/24/20 and the Ford Exporer at 18/25/20.

Still, don’t forget that Toyota and Honda will bring their new versions of Highlander and Pilot next year, but that’s good new as Nissan will have an advantage for 12 months. In terms of design, the 2013 Pathfinder received some radical changes but we all know them because we saw the Pathfinder Concept, right? Other significant changes will be a smaller 3.5-liter V6 engine that will replace the previous model's 4.0 V6 and the introduction to a more fuel-efficient continuously variable transmission (explained in the video).

The new Nissan Pathfinder will receive a 3.5-liter V-6 engine, Nissan officials told Motor Trend. This new model will make its debut this April at the New York Auto Show. When the new Pathfinder was unveiled in Detroit, it was considered to still be a concept since it didn’t have an interior. But a production version is set to make its debut in Chicago.

As it was still a concept, Nissan won’t reveal any particular details about the new, unibody, front-wheel drive-based Pathfinder aside from the fact that it will be launched with a V-6 engine, continuously variable transmission as well as intelligent all-wheel drive.

A Nissan insider said that the Pathfinder will be powered by the automaker’s proven 3.5-liter V-6. It’s believed that this is the case for the new Pathfinder that is Nissan’s version of the new Infiniti JX35, which features the same powertrain. Nissan could still retune the engine for the Pathfinder but it will probably have the same 265hp and 248 pound-feet of torque as the JX.

The new Pathfinder Concept was revealed at the 2012 Detroit Auto Show and shows how Nissan is planning to reinvent one of its most popular SUV in order to appeal to customers looking for SUV capabilities with more passenger comfort, innovative technology and fuel-efficient performance. As expected, this new concept is very close to production and seeks some positive feedback from the Detroit Auto Show (it already got it from us as we do like it!).

According to Nissan, the concept previews the next-generation Pathfinder, which will go on sale in fall 2012. As you can see from the photos, the Pathfinder Concept introduces a new design language for the Nissan brand but it also features innovative 3-row interior flexibility and room for seven passengers.

A refined V6 engine and a next-generation Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) promise to make the new Pathfinder one of the most fuel-efficient 7-passenger vehicles on the market.
