The Nissan Pathfinder posted the most significant year-over-year sales increase of any midsize SUV or crossover in Canada in May 2013. Pathfinder sales nearly quintupled compared with May 2012. While sales of Nissan’s own Murano fell 41%, the pair’s combined total grew 28%.
Prices for the three-row Pathfinder range upward from $29,998 to $42,098. Pricing for the two-row Murano, which comes standard with all-wheel-drive – a $2000 option on the Pathfinder – ranges from $34,498 to $47,098.
The Pathfinder, though much more successful now than it’s been in the recent past, still doesn’t sell like a Ford Explorer, which doesn’t sell quite as often as the Jeep Grand Cherokee. Lower-priced two-row alternatives from Ford (the Edge) and Hyundai (the Santa Fe), as well as the two-or-three-row Kia Sorento, generate greater volume in Canada than properly midsize SUVs and crossovers, however.
