What's New in the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder?

For 2019, all Pathfinder trims gain a rear sonar system and two additional USB type-C ports that join the existing four USB type-A ports. SV and higher trims gain Nissan's Intelligent Cruise Control, blind-spot warning and rear cross-traffic alert, while SL and Platinum trims add LED headlights.

Also new for 2019 is the Rock Creek edition ($995), which is a new exterior package that features off-road inspired black trim pieces and overfender molding.

Which Pathfinder is the Best?

At just under $36,000, the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder SV provides most of the popular standard gear along with some advanced safety systems. Toss in the All Weather and Tech packages, and you're still out the door for less than $38,000. Unless you simply must have leather seats or the around-view monitor, the SV grade is a pretty good buy.
