Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The 2020 Nissan Pathfinder comes with front wheel drive, and four wheel drive. Available transmissions include: continuously variable-speed automatic.New Rock Creek Edition offers unique visual flair.

Pros
V6 engine delivers strong acceleration with decent fuel economy
Third-row seating is easy to access
Robust towing capacity
Automatic emergency braking and rear parking sensors are standard on every trim level

Cons
Cargo capacity and small-item storage are below average
Offers less roomy third-row space than some rivals
The top trim's ride quality may be too firm for some drivers

Nissan doesn't change or update the 2020 Pathfinder in any meaningful way. The rugged-looking Rock Creek Edition that was introduced last year is still available. However, those who hope the heritage-inspired package actually packs some legitimate off-road equipment will be disappointed.

Pros
Solid value in this class, cushy cabin experience, notable 6000-pound towing capacity.

Cons
Drives more boatlike than it should, middling cargo storage, small third row.
