MARCH 27, 2013
The new hybrid—which uses Nissan’s new FF hybrid system ( earlier post )—will be available in three fully equipped trim levels when it joins the lineup in late summer 2013. For the Hybrid version, Pathfinder’s standard 3.5-liter V6 is replaced by a new supercharged 2.5-liter gasoline engine and an electric motor paired with a compact Li-ion battery. One clutch is installed between the gasoline engine and the electric motor, the other within the CVT.
