2019 Nissan Pathfinder
If you’re looking for adventure in the Brockton, Randolph, and Stoughton areas, you’ll need a vehicle that can get you where you need to go. For generous interior space and unrelenting reliability, the new 2019 Nissan Pathfinder is one of your best options. While there are plenty of appealing features to enjoy in this vehicle, there’s one in particular that sets it apart from other SUVs on the market.

The Pathfinder’s towing capacity is surprisingly high, allowing you to take extra cargo along with you for your next adventure. While it’s plenty enough to stand among the top performers in its class, is it enough for your needs? Find out in our comprehensive review of the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder towing capacity!

2019 Pathfinder Maximum Towing Capacity

The Pathfinder is nothing short of a powerhouse when it comes to SUVs, and its towing capacity speaks to that better than anything. At best, this vehicle can tow up to 6,000 pounds behind it—enough to tow small recreational boats, several ATVs and dirt bikes, small trailers, and so much more.*

Normally you’d have to opt for a higher trim level to enjoy maximum towing capacity, but the Pathfinder offers its 6,000-pound limit from the very beginning—from the standard trim all the way to the premium Platinum. You just have to make sure it’s properly equipped, and, as with any vehicle, never try to exceed the limit beyond what it can handle.

The Pathfinder Engine Power

In order to offer such an impressive towing capacity, the Pathfinder is outfitted with a beefy engine that’s capable of outputting massive amounts of power. Like the towing capacity itself, this engine is standard across all trim levels, so you don’t have to upgrade for the power you deserve.

Under the hood, you’ll find a 3.5L Direct Injection Gasoline V6 engine, offering 284 horsepower and 259 lb-ft of torque. It comes with a Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System as well as a Variable Induction System, so you know you’re always getting the most out of your engine.

Further Nissan Pathfinder Performance

For taking on any terrain and weather condition with ease, opt for the Intelligent 4×4 system using easy-to-select driving modes, so you can personalize your experience depending on where you’re driving.

This comes in incredibly handy when towing, as the control you have over your vehicle directly relates to the control you have of what is behind you. Keeping steady whether the terrain is wet, snowy, or rough is just what you need to make hauling as seamless as possible.

2019 Nissan Towing Convenience

When you’re headed off on your next towing adventure, you want to be sure that you’ll always be in control of the equipment you’re hauling. To aid in this, the Pathfinder offers numerous features that make towing easier than ever.

The Pathfinder also has numerous available accessories. If you’re going to be taking advantage of its impressive towing capacity, you’ll especially want the Tow Hitch Receiver—complete with a 7-pin wiring harness. This handy accessory makes it simple to connect whatever you’re planning to tow to the Pathfinder safely and securely.

2019 Pathfinder Payload

Along with the ability to standardly tow up to 6,000 pounds, this Nissan can perform very well on its own, as well. With a maximum payload of 1,693 pounds, you can pack in the cabin of your Pathfinder easily.

Whether you’re traveling while something is in tow or simply hitting the streets without, the payload of the SUV allows you to seat up to seven passengers in its 154 cubic feet of passenger space. And that doesn’t even include the expansive cargo room.

This SUV is truly perfect for the person who is always on the go. Whether you’re trying to make work easier, enjoy family fun, or continually need to tow something in the area, the Pathfinder has you covered.

Inside this Nissan, you’ll find three rows of seats that can easily be configured to fit whatever you need, be it passengers or cargo. When the rows are full of people, you can utilize the generous 16.2 cubic feet of room in the back.

When you fold down the third row, you can open this space up wider. Measuring in at 47.4 cubic feet, you’ll have plenty of space for packing items behind the second seat, as well as passengers.

Finally, for the most cargo space the Pathfinder can provide, you can easily create a flat area behind the first row. When this takes place, you’ll have 79.5 cubic feet to play with! Can you imagine the stuff you can take with you with that much cargo room, plus the additional 6,000-pound towing capacity? The possibilities are truly impressive.
