Nissan Pathfinder Engine and Fuel Economy
The last model of Pathfinder was the first one to come as a hybrid model. The 2017 Nissan Pathfinder will also come with an electric motor. But first, let’s take a look at the petrol unit. The 3.5l six-cylinder can produce 300 horsepower and 250 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, it goes from 0 to 60 mph in just eight seconds and comes with CVT transmission. Apart from the petrol engine, Nissan decided to launch hybrid this time as well.
The company made a huge success with Pathfinder last year, and installation of the electric motor surely contributed to its success. Four-cylinder 2.5-liter gasoline is accompanied with a 15-kW electric motor. This combination can deliver 250 HP and 243 lb-ft torque. It is less than petrol engine but is eco-friendlier than before. Fuel consumption has been reduced. New Pathfinder offers 20 mpg and 26 mpg in a city and on highway respectively.
