2019 Nissan Pathfinder models The base S comes with a range of essential features and nice surprises, starting with a 3.5-liter V6 engine (284 horsepower, 259 lb-ft of torque) paired with a continuously variable automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive comes standard, but a four-wheel-drive system is optional and includes hill descent control and a special four-wheel-drive locking function for extra traction. It should be noted that all Pathfinders are capable of towing 6,000 pounds.
Highlights of the S trim's standard features include 18-inch alloy wheels, roof rails, tri-zone automatic climate control, a rearview camera, keyless ignition and entry, a 60/40-split folding second-row seat (which also slides and reclines), Bluetooth, an 8-inch touchscreen interface, and a six-speaker sound system with HD and satellite radio, a CD player and dual USB ports (one Type A and one Type C) for both front and rear passengers. Automatic emergency braking and reverse parking sensors also come standard.
The SV adds automatic headlights, foglights, rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, adaptive cruise control, a power-adjustable driver's seat, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. An optional All Weather package offers heated front seats, along with heated side mirrors and steering wheel. A navigation system, driver safety aids, Nissan telematics services, and a trailer hitch receiver and wiring harness are available with the optional Tech package.
Moving up to the SL, our recommended trim, adds the features from the SV's All Weather and Tech packages, as well as leather upholstery, LED headlights, a power liftgate, a top-down 360-degree parking camera system, a power-adjustable passenger seat, heated second-row seats and upgraded interior trim.
The optional SL Premium package adds 20-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, a 13-speaker Bose audio system and a trailer hitch receiver. You can also order the SL with the Midnight Edition package, which includes blacked-out 20-inch wheels, side mirrors, roof rails and other cosmetic elements.
For 2019, Nissan has come out with the Pathfinder Rock Creek Edition, which is fundamentally a styling package for either the SV or SL trim level. On the outside, the Rock Creek Edition comes with dark-painted 18-inch wheels with all-season tires and a blackout treatment for the grille, badges, roof rails, side-mirror caps, door handles and fender flares. Inside, you'll find a two-tone color scheme with Rock Creek embroidery and orange contrast stitching.
Finally, the Platinum bundles all the previously mentioned options with ventilated front seats, a power-adjustable steering wheel and wood interior trim. A rear-seat entertainment system with dual 8-inch headrest displays is optional for the Platinum only.- Source Edmunds
