When you’re planning your family vacation, what factors stand out as absolute must-haves? For many families, it comes down to pure logistics: we need three rows of seating, above-average fuel economy, lots of space for luggage and cargo, and the ability to pull a trailer if need be. And we’ll admit, these are a lot of boxes to check. Yet, when comparing the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder vs the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, the ability to meet all the needs for Houston-area families takes on a more tangible form. So, how do these two capable and iconic SUVs live up to their a driver’s specifications.
The first item to truly jump off of the page when you look at the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder vs the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee is the Nissan’s overwhelming advantage in terms of passenger move-about room. For vacation-ready versatility, you truly can’t beat the Pathfinder’s seating for seven and insurmountable edge in both passenger volume and interior cargo volume. Additionally, given the Pathfinder’s notable edge in highway fuel economy--27 mpg for the Pathfinder compared to just 25 for the competing Jeep--those stops to fuel up will become less common on long trips with the family. And, if you should desire to pull a boat or trailer, the Pathfinder’s 5,000-pound towing capacity allows for this to be easily achieved.
After its favorable comparison to the 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee, it’s little wonder that the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder continues to be a consumer favorite three full decades after its creation. After all this time, the core tenets of what makes the Pathfinder so special--power, versatility, and passenger comfort--are more apt than ever before. And drivers in the Houston area shouldn’t expect this to change any time soon.
Powered by a muscular 3.6-liter V6 power platform that delivers an excellent 260 horsepower, the Pathfinder doesn’t retreat from any challenges, whether they are on the performance front or in the realm of fuel efficiency. Then, when you consider the many available convenience features--the Dual Panorama Moonroof, the Tri-Zone Entertainment System, and the class-exclusive Around View Monitor, to name just three--it becomes apparent that the Pathfinder is simply operating on a different plane than most competing vehicles.
