2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid
2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid

Nissan redesigned its Pathfinder SUV for the 2013 model year, but for the 2014 model it is ready to bring a hybrid version to market. The seven-seater will be powered by a supercharged 2.5-liter gasoline engine paired with an electric motor that provides 250 horsepower and 243 foot-pounds of torque -- power similar to the gasoline-only V-6 version yet with an expected 26 combined miles per gallon, a 24 percent increase over the Pathfinder's standard V-6 engine.

It also has a 3,500-pound towing capacity when properly equipped. The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid rides on the same chassis as the gasoline-only model, which means it also has an available four-wheel-drive system with driver-selectable two-wheel drive, automatic four-wheel drive or a four-wheel-drive lock mode for situations when additional capability is necessary.

Other features include trizone automatic climate control, Bluetooth hands-free cellphone capability, power rear liftgate, a trizone entertainment system with built-in DVD screens and Nissan's Around View monitor, which provides a 360-degree view of the area around the vehicle.

The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder Hybrid will arrive in showrooms in late summer 2013.
