With its biggest Canadian sales numbers in more than a decade, the Nissan Pathfinder outsold the Toyota Highlander in September 2013.
Four times stronger than they were a year ago (and six times stronger in September) Pathfinder sales through the first nine months of 2013 are already greater than what Nissan managed in 2009, 2011, and 2012 combined.
The Nissan Pathfinder, however, didn’t sell as often as the Honda Pilot in September, nor as often as the Jeep Grand Cherokee or Ford Explorer. It trails the Explorer, JGC, and Toyota Highlander year-to-date.
The gap between the Pathfinder and its better-selling three-row crossovers is small, however, and it’s yet another sign of what Nissan and other automobile manufacturers can do when they leave off-road-capable SUV platforms behind in order to chase crossover buyers.
