The newly-redesigned 2013 Nissan Pathfinder has found itself an award recently at the Chicago Auto Show.
Motorweek has given it the Best Large Utility Drivers’ Choice Award due to its shift toward increased comfort and luxury.
Al Castignetti, vice president and general manager, Nissan Division, Nissan North America, said:
“The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder was completely redesigned to provide best-in-class standard towing capacity with cargo space for the entire family, and neither were compromised in pursuit of class-leading fuel efficiency. This honor solidifies the Pathfinder’s unparalleled versatility, and we sincerely thankMotorWeek for their recognition.”
The Motorweek editorial staff judges several different categories and over 150 vehicles. They are judged based on superior performance, technology, practicality, dollar value and driving experience.
MotorWeek senior executive producer and longtime host John Davis added:
“With a lighter unibody chassis and V6-only power, the Nissan Pathfinder remains plenty capable off road and can still tow 5,000 pounds.”
The Nissan Pathfinder is also one of the least expensive vehicles to insure.
