2014 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2014 Ford Explorer

The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2014 Ford Explorer is all about close calls. Where one vehicle exceeds the other’s capabilities the other vehicle comes right back to show what more it has to offer. Here at Ingram Park Nissan we’re weighing the advantages of both these exciting new SUVs.

The 2014 Ford Explorer comes out of the gate with a 290-horsepower performance that produces up to 255 pound-feet of torque. When powered by its 3.5-liter V-6 engine, the Explorer beats the Pathfinder in the powertrain department. However, where the Explorer has more power, it actually has a lower fuel economy than the latest Nissan at an EPA-estimated 24 mpg highway. The two SUVs both have the strength to haul up to 5,000 pounds, when properly equipped, but when it comes to personalizing the drive, the 2014 Nissan Pathfinder and its plethora of class-exclusive options win the race. The 2014 Ford Explorer continues to provide adventurous drivers with the tools they need to be successful on the road, but a winning performance comes down to the details when competition is this close.
