2016 Nissan Pathfinder for Sale near St. Charles, IL
The Pathfinder is Well on its Way to Making Hitting the Road a Comfortable Family Affair
Seats for seven? Check. Able to tow 5,0001 pounds? Check. Entertainment system to rival a home system? Check. Second-row seats that allow access to the third-row even when there’s a child’s seat in it? Check. The 2016 Nissan Pathfinder for sale near St. Charles, IL, has started down a new path: from truck SUV to a more family-friendly utility crossover. Retaining its impressive size, Nissan has carefully crafted the new 2016 Pathfinder to be quiet, even over rough roads, and thoughtfully packaged their options to make them most useful to consumers.
Nissan is clearly determined to sell more Pathfinders to the Chicagoland area. With the addition of the Cold package, which includes heated front seats and a heated steering wheel, and the Platinum model, which includes ventilated seats, the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder has all the makings to withstand the vacillating Illinois weather. Switching between heating up your freezing fingers on the steering wheel and rolling down the windows to help abate the heat from the glaring sun is easy as pie in the 2016 Pathfinder.
Using Nissan’s “D-Step” logic2, the 2016 Pathfinder is quieter than its predecessors. By simulating the action of an automatic gearbox, Nissan ensures that the CVT isn’t the aurally painful experience it’s been in the past, even over the larger Chicagoland potholes. Though lighter than some of the full-size crossovers from General Motors, the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder for sale near St. Charles, IL, still boasts a 260 horsepower with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. All of that boils down to lower revs while cruising and maintaining the maximum fuel economy. Available in AWD and FWD on any trim level, the FWD has 20/27/23 city/highway/combined MPG3 and 19/26/23 city/highway/combined MPG3 for AWD.
The Pathfinder comes in four options, the base model S, SV, SL, and the Platinum. The SV, SL, and Platinum comes standard with rear parking sensors and a rearview camera, while the SL and Platinum add a blind-spot warning system and rear-cross traffic alerts5. Though that concludes the special safety features on the Pathfinder, the vehicle received a top 5-star rating overall by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety6.
The SL Tech package offers some nice perks with a 360 degree parking camera, an 8-inch touchscreen display, voice-controlled navigation, and the piece de resistance is the Bose® 7 audio system. The Family Entertainment package, known to many parents as the ultimate kid occupier, is a rear-seat DVD entertainment system with dual displays that’s exclusively available on the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder Platinum model. Can you hear the “are we there yet?” questions fading from their minds as they watch cartoons on their own screens?
