The Pathfinder: A Safe Choice in the Best Way

May 31st, 2024 by

Summer is nearly upon us in Freehold, and by all accounts, it will rock. That said, the summer season brings its fair share of hazards to roadways that aren’t often seen at other times of the year: humid temperatures can mess with your engine, thunderstorms can strike at any moment, and the roads are cluttered with inexperienced, young drivers enjoying time off from school. 

That’s why having a safe vehicle is paramount this time of year. Thankfully, Raceway Nissan of Freehold has the perfect vehicle for you. With a five-star NHTSA overall safety rating, the 2024 Nissan Pathfinder is a sensational SUV that provides space, comfort, and some of the most innovative safety features in the segment. 

The Path to Award-Winning Safety 

The 2024 Nissan Pathfinder was named an IIHS Top Safety Pick+, and it’s easy to see why. Praise was lavished on its child seat anchors, which scored a rare Good+ rating on its overall report. Combine that with the Pathfinder’s practical cabin design, quiet interior while cruising, and off-road capability and you have the certified family SUV of the summer. 

The Pathfinder is no slouch when it comes to getting down and dirty, either. Its towing capacity is 6,000 pounds – more than rivals such as the Kia Telluride or Toyota Highlander. The 2024 Pathfinder keeps the 3.5-liter V-6 from the previous-gen model but adds a new nine-speed automatic. And once again, it outpaces the Telluride and Highlander when it comes to pure speed, going from zero to 60 in 6.7 seconds. 

Finding the Latest Features 

The Pathfinder’s interior is remarkably hushed. Implementing Nissan’s sound-deadening elements creates a respectful atmosphere, which results in a tranquil commute when paired with the Pathfinder’s smooth ride. Even when you’re driving up busy Route 9 North towards Old Bridge, the ambiance won’t falter. 

Inside, you’ll find an 8.0-inch infotainment touchscreen running the latest version of the NissanConnect interface. From there you can access the Pathfinder’s full bevy of driver-assistance features, including: 

  • Automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection 
  • Blind-spot monitoring 
  • Lane-departure warning 
  • Automatic high-beam headlights 
  • Available adaptive cruise control w/ semi-autonomous driving mode
