2022 Nissan Pathfinder

vs 2022 Toyota Highlander in Lafayette, LA

Ready for a new adventure? The all-new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is, too. With its spacious seating, powerful engine, available Intelligent 4x4 and impressive towing capacity, the Nissan Pathfinder can take you anywhere you want to go. We weren't joking. Thanks to its 3.5-liter DOHC 24-valve Direct Injection Gasoline™ (DIG) V6 engine, the Nissan Pathfinder has the strength to tow up to 6,000 pounds1 and produce 284 horsepower. But that's not all! Bring the whole family along for the ride — plenty can sit comfortable in its eight-passenger capacity, plus, the EZ FLEX® Seating System makes adjusting seats convenient and simple. When you're ready to set out on your next journey, the all-new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder has everything you need to get there safely and comfortably.

An SUV this hot is bound to be harassed by competitors. One of them, the 2022 Toyota Highlander, has been particularly loud this year. Let’s see how the two models match up.

With a top brand like Toyota, you'd think the race would be a tad bit… closer. But not here — the 2022 Nissan Pathfinder is the clear winner against the 2022 Toyota Highlander. Both supply their own branded safety suites and all-wheel drive systems, and other than those similarities, these two full-size SUVs couldn't be more different. Where the Nissan Pathfinder excels, the Toyota Highlander fails. The Highlander only offers four selectable drive modes (Sport, Eco, Normal and Snow) on its base model; the Nissan Pathfinder offers a total of seven (Mut/Rut, Sport, Eco, Sand, Snow, Tow and Terrain). A cargo area under-floor storage system can't be found on the Toyota Highlander, but it's a standard convenience feature on Nissan Pathfinder models. Technology, too, seems to favor the Nissan Pathfinder. It carries 13 available speakers on higher trims (the Highlander only offers 11), and its massive available 12.3-inch widescreen with digital gauges will help drivers access vital information without having to squint.

All of these differences, and the Toyota Highlander still has the nerve to have a starting MSRP that's over $1,500 more than the Nissan Pathfinder?2,3 We can't believe it, either. Make the better choice — take home the new 2022 Nissan Pathfinder today.
