Nissan Pathfinder faced a group of rivalry with other car brands of the same model the time it arrived in 1987. Its original model was available in a base XE and an uplevel SE trim level. It came with a 153-hp 3.0 liter V6 and a standard 5-speed manual gearbox although an optional 4-speed automatic is also available. Originally it was just a 2-door body style, but a 4-door body was produced in 1990 with both a 2-wheel-drive and a part time 4-wheel-drive.
Having known to be a blend of ideas from the East and the West, the Pathfinder continuously was modified in so many ways. Distinguished by its triangular side windows, the four-door Pathfinder's signature was its rear-door handles integrated into the C-pillar and was disguised by a black trim paint making it the only difference with the two-door version.
The exterior of both models suggests a mix of square-jawed toughness softened by subtle curves and generous glass areas. The overall length, width, height, wheelbase and interior room were all in all similar in both two and four doors, including the powertrain, brakes, chassis, suspensions and tires. The Pathfinder was no more or no less truck like, however, a quality and reliability record ranked it consistently at the top of this class of trucks.
After a few generations of Nissan Pathfinder, the latest model is the 2004 Armada. This is Nissan's first entrance in the full-size SUV segment, making Nissan a full-line SUV manufacturer. This newest model comes with an available 7-passenger seats and a removable second-row center console. There's really lots of room inside the storage fold-flat seats and third-row seats making it best for a full stow away cargo for camping things. It has a full length overhead console and a towing capacity of up to 9,100 pounds.
The Nissan Pathfinder Armada has a 123.2 inch wheelbase and 206.9 inches overall length, with a 305 horsepower at 4,900-rpm and an impressive torque, 385 lb.-ft. at 3,200-rpm. Below, the Armada shares Titan's fully-boxed steel frame. It is independent with a double-wishbone rear suspension different from the Titan having the live rear axle. Offered in a 17- or 18- inch tires for Nissan's off-road package, Nissan Pathfinder Armada is also available in both 2 wheel drive and 4 wheel drive models. It is driven only by the rear wheels in normal driving conditions but is capable of powering up all four corners.
