Test Drive the 2016 Nissan Pathfinder in Vallejo, CA
Both vehicles are quite evenly matched at the base trims, with similar standard features and specs with the Pathfinder coming in almost $2,000 cheaper. However, once you start getting up to the higher trims, you'll notice a difference in interior must-haves and pricing. The Pathfinder's Platinum trim comes standard with streaming audio via Bluetooth wireless technology, climate-controlled front seats, 13-speaker Bose audio system, dual panorama moonroof, and an available all-mode drivetrain all for $41,610. The Traverse's highest trim, the LTZ, comes with similar features yet the price tag is much higher at $44,145.
One incredibly useful tool that the 2016 Pathfinder comes available with is the Around View Monitor. Featured only on Nissan vehicles, the Around View Monitor takes the technology behind a back-up camera and goes a step further by giving you a 360-degree view around the crossover. This especially comes in handy for those who need to navigate their large crossover into tight spaces, as being able to view every angle will help avoid bumps and scrapes against other cars. The camera works by using four wide-angle cameras mounted around the car that link together to create a virtual all-around view. Around View Monitor is available on the 2016 SL Tech and higher trims.
