    2013 Nissan Pathfinder vs Dodge Durango 0-60 MPH Mile High Mashup Review

    The brand new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is now a new school 7 passenger family hauling Crossover.

    With a CVT and front-wheel-drive the base Nissan Pathfinder is engineered to sip fuel instead of finding paths in the great untamed wilderness.

    On the other hand the 2013 Dodge Durango is much more of an old school Crossover.

    In base trim the Durango has a rear-wheel-drive set-up mated to a 5-speed automatic powered by a somewhat larger V6.

    Of course can be had with a all-wheel-drive but in this mashup we wanted to see which of these two vehicles is the better family hauling truckster.

    Check out another fun, informative and exclusive TFLcar mashup as we put both of these Crossovers to the 0-60 MPH test @ a mile above sea level.

    Editor’s note: These vehicles in their current trim are rare in the Rockies. That’s because both are base models with front (Nissan) or rear (Dodge) drive. We’ve driven both vehicles with all-wheel drive (AWD) and they both do amazingly well on loose dirt and light off-road conditions.

    This is one of the few times we actually compared properly competing vehicles. They are closely priced, powered, equipped and compete for the same demographic.

    Don’t worry folks, this is a rare occurrence, we’ll keep to our odd-ball Mashups in the future.

    1. I think the Dodge Durango is better. In general it has more to offer than th Nissan Pathfinder and the rest of the competition.

      1. Thanks for watching. We thought about it but we got hit with a snow storm today making our off-road course not only tough but snowy and icy as well. There’s no way either 2WD car would have made it 20 yards up the trail. So instead we took a different and much more capable off-road vehicle to play in the snow. Please stay tuned for that video coming by the end of the week.

    2. Really enjoy your videos everyday. I have a question. Will you be taking the Durango and/or the Pathfinder out for an off-road review. Seems logical.
