    2013 Nissan Pathfinder AWD Off-Road Tech Demo

    The 2013 Nissan Pathfinder is no longer a hard core Body on Frame off-road bashing machine.

    Instead the new Pathfinder is a modern Crossover with only 6.5 inches of ground clearance and low rolling resistance tires designed more for fuel economy than mud.

    Instead of the traditional off-road parts, the new Nissan has a CVT and a selectable terrain management system. Like the Ford Explorer, Jeep Grand Cherokee and Land Rover LR4, the terrain management rotary dial is located near the armrest of the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder.

    So how does the Pathfinders selectable AWD system work?

    Check out this Off-Road Tech Demo video below to find out.

    BTW: You can also watch our first drive review of the new 2013 Nissan Pathfinder HERE as we test it in the hills and wine country of Northern California.

    Editor’s note: Nissan flew us out to Northern California to sample the all new, 2013 Nissan Pathfinder for ourselves. We tested it over the course of two days and had an opportunity to drive it on a wet and muddy dirt course. The sections that challenged the 2013 Nissan Pathfinder were slippery enough for most vehicles to warrant shifting into four-wheel drive.
