new Toyota 4Runner vs Nissan Pathfinder

If you're thinking of getting a new Toyota near Orlando that can handle more than highway driving, then it's important to think of the big picture. After all, you need access to more than style - your vehicle needs to be tough and dependable, too! 


The 2014 Nissan Pathfinder is intended to be more of a car-based crossover. It's designed and equipped to offer slight better fuel economy; it has a combined fuel efficiency of 21 mpg versus the Toyota's 19 mpg. This Nissan SUV may be able to hold its own on the highway, but it can't keep up with the Toyota 4Runner near Orlando if the journey goes off-road, though. 

The new Toyota 4Runner near Orlando offers a smooth and comfortable ride on paved roads, but it's built to be tough and durable. It comes with important features like more power, better handling, and extra versatility that make it perfect for both daily and weekend trips!

  • The 2014 Toyota 4Runner near Orlando outranks the Nissan Pathfinder in engine power. It has a 4.0L V6 engine compared with the Nissan competitors 3.5L V6 engine. 
  • The Nissan has a tough time keeping up with this new Toyota when it comes to horsepower and torque, too. Its smaller engine produces 260 hp and 240 lb.-ft. of torque. The tough new Toyota near Orlando delivers 270 hp and 278 lb.-ft. of torque!


The Toyota 4Runner also comes with rear-wheel drive, while the Nissan Pathfinder has front-wheel drive. 
  • Front-wheel drive can diminish control, which isn't a desired side-effect no matter what road you're on. 
  • Another disadvantage of front-wheel drive is that it can produce torque steer, which is when one wheel gets more power than the other. This causes the vehicle to drift to one side!
  • With rear-wheel drive, you don't have to worry about these disadvantages. For starters, with rear-wheel drive the power comes from the back so you can enjoy more acceleration in the new Toyota near Orlando. 
  • Another perk that rear-wheel drive delivers in the 2014 Toyota 4Runner is more precise stopping power AND better response time!

  • With eight speakers versus the Nissan's six, the tough Toyota SUV can provide a better listening experience, too!
  • The Toyota also has Bluetooth wireless technology as a standard feature, but this isn't even an option to consider in the base trim-level of the Nissan Pathfinder.  
  • The driver won't have a problem getting comfortable in the Toyota, either. The Nissan Pathfinder's front seat can be adjusted 6 ways, while the Toyota 4Runner's can be moved 8 ways!
