First Look: 2013 Nissan Pathfinder

A huge focus for this new Pathfinder was fuel economy. As such, it’s cut over 500 pounds off of the 2012 Pathfinder, with base front-wheel-drive models tipping the scales at 4149 pounds, while the four-wheel-drive Pathfinder is a mere 4290 pounds. The resulting boost to fuel economy is impressive, with 20 miles per gallon in the city, and 26 mpg on the highway.

First Look: 2013 Nissan 370Z

Nissan unveiled its revised, 2013 370Z before tomorrow’s Chicago Auto Show press day begins. The 2013 Z is a refresh of the sixth-generation Z that debuted in 2009, meaning that the guts of the beloved Z are the same (3.7-liter V-6, with a six-speed stick or seven-speed auto). That means 332 horsepower as standard, while the hotter Nismo Z comes to market with a solid 350 horsepower.

Detroit 2012: Nissan Pathfinder Concept

The Pathfinder is motivated by a V-6 of undisclosed displacement and output, while shifting doesn’t really happen at all, thanks to a continuously variable transmission.

No seven-passenger SUV worth its salt would come to market without an all-wheel-drive option, and the Pathfinder Concept is no exception. It should also be quite capable in the realm of towing.
