Vehicle Overview

The introduction of the new Pathfinder Armada full-size sport utility vehicle for 2004 doesn’t mean Nissan’s midsize Pathfinder will disappear. Both will be part of Nissan’s lineup.

Nissan also sells the youth-oriented Xterra, which is based on the Frontier pickup truck and priced below the Pathfinder.

Previous Pathfinders have been offered in SE and upscale LE forms. For 2004, the LE becomes the Platinum edition and features electroluminescent gauges, aluminum kick plates and special dark wood trim.

All versions are ready for the installation of either a Sirius or XM Satellite Radio. Side-impact airbags and side curtain-type airbags are standard in the Platinum. A Vehicle Dynamic Control Package offers an electronic stability system, traction control and a tire-pressure monitor. The Pathfinder competes against such SUVs as the Acura MDX, Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander.
