Performance Features

Performance Features

Whipping out an estimated total of 295 net horsepower, the 2024 Nissan Pathfinder’s standard V-6 engine block comes with normal aspiration. This six-cylinder engine bursts out up to 270 pound-feet of torque. Governed by Direct Injection Gasoline, the 3.5-liter engine tows a maximum of 6,000 gross pounds according to SAE J2807 measurements. Powered by a V-6 engine, the 2024 Honda Pilot can’t tow more than 5,000 pounds. This Honda SUV can’t get more than 285 hp and 262 lb-ft of torque from the standard engine, which displaces nearly 3.5 L. A high-pressure, direct-injection system regulates combustion under the hood of this three-row Honda SUV. However, the Variable Cylinder Management is perhaps one of the most unique mechanical features of this vehicle. Most Pilot models offer the second-generation Intelligent Variable Torque Management AWD system. You’ll get much better off-road performance from the 2024 Pathfinder Drive and Terrain Mode Selector and Intelligent 4×4 drive system. Fitted with the Dual Flow Path shock absorbers, this three-row Nissan SUV is ready to take on extreme terrains. Additionally, an off-road suspension system is available on the highly capable Rock Creek edition.
