2014 Nissan Pathfinder: What's Changed


  • Most significant changes: New option package; hybrid model coming this fall
  • Price change: A less than $100 increase on most models
  • On sale: Now
  • Which should you buy, 2013 or 2014? If you want premium features such as Bluetooth audio streaming and navigation without jumping to the Platinum trim, opt for the 2014.

A 2013 redesign took Nissan's Pathfinder from rough and rugged to comfortable and family-friendly. For 2014, the midsize crossover gets a new tech package, a small price increase and a hybrid model is joining the lineup this fall.

The new SL Tech Package adds a Bose 13-speaker audio system, a navigation system, voice recognition, XM NavTraffic and NavWeather capability (SiriusXM subscription required), Zagat Survey restaurant guide, Bluetooth streaming audio and 8-inch color touch-screen. Bluetooth audio streaming was previously only available on the 2013 Platinum trim, as was the navigation system; a Bose audio system was previously only part of the SL Premium Package. The new package is $1,570 and joins the SL Premium Package, Platinum Premium Package and Trailer Tow Package.

Model-year 2014 trim level pricing is below. All prices include an $845 destination fee and model-year 2013 prices are in parenthesis. Hybrid model prices have not yet been released.

S 2WD: $29,545 ($29,495)
S 4WD: $31,145 ($31,095)

Hope they price the Hybrid model competitively and sell in higher #.


To me, this looks like dated already

Tony, if you think this looks dated, what would you think about the Honda Pilot?


I currently drive a 2010 CRV. I am looking to get something larger for our growing family. This car offers so many options and is priced rather well. Due to the pilot being a box and the fact that they said they were going to do the big change this year and then didn't, I am considering leaving honda and going with the pathfinder. I don't foresee honda ever offering this amount of options period, much less for close to this price.


Jack B. Nimble ,

this article is not about Pilot


This is priced like highlander, but isn't as good. I would only buy this if they offered huge discounts or incentives. Another example of the new vehicle pricing bubble.

Disappointing they didn't add an option for HID headlamps.


Agreed. HIDs is missing from what is otherwise, a nice complete package.


I just bought the 2014 Pathfinder SL and I love it so much. The interior look very luxurious and the exterior is fantastic. Everything about the car from the engine to transmission to seats to steering wheel are all come from Infiniti JX35. But you are paying $10K discount from the JX35. Nissan gave me $6K discount on the new vehicle so make sure you drive a hard bargain. Good Luck!!
