Are you in the market for an SUV? Don’t settle just for any vehicle, visit Thomas Nissan of Joliet to check out the stunning 2018 Nissan Pathfinder up close and personal. This one-of-a-kind SUV offers a thrilling performance, advanced cabin technology, and modern safety features. To make your decision, we decided to put the Pathfinder up against the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse, so you can see just how great the Pathfinder really is. Visit us today at 1427 North Larkin Avenue in Joliet, IL, to meet with a skilled member of our staff, and to take the Pathfinder out for a test drive.

We all want to drive a vehicle that will keep us protected at all times, and in the Pathfinder, you will have the peace of mind that you deserve. The standard Nissan Advanced Airbag System with dual-stage supplemental front airbags1, with seat belt and occupant-classification sensors, will take safety a step further. The Traverse does not offer this Nissan safety feature. You can never have enough airbags1, and the Pathfinder also includes standard driver and front passenger seat-mounted side-impact supplemental airbags1, as well as roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental airbags1 with rollover sensors for outboard occupant’s head protection for all three rows.

Under the hood of the 2018 Pathfinder you will be equally impressed. The standard 3.5-liter Direct Injection Gasoline™ (DIG) DOHC 24-valve V6 engine that generates 284 horsepower and 259 lb.-ft. of torque. What helps the Pathfinder stand out from its competition is its fuel economy. With a fuel rating of 20/27 MPG city/hwy2, you spend more time driving your kids to Dellwood Park, and less time at the pump. The Pathfinder also comes equipped with a Continuously Variable Valve Timing Control System (CVTCS) on intake and exhaust valves, while the lowly Traverse, does not.

Your drive would be incomplete without the myriad of technology that is found in the cabin. If you want a concert-quality experience when you listen to your favorite jams, then you can opt for the available Bose® Premium Audio System with 13 speakers, including Acoustic Waveguide technology. The Traverse also offers a unique sound system, but only comes with an available Bose® premium 10-speaker system. Lastly, listen to over 150 channels with the standard SiriusXM® Satellite Radio3, that includes a 3-month complimentary trial access. Better yet, the Pathfinder is equipped with standard HD Radio, giving you optimum radio reception when you play your favorite stations.

When it comes to the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2018 Chevrolet Traverse near Chicago, IL, the Pathfinder takes the cake. Don’t wait another second and visit Thomas Nissan of Joliet to see this SUV in person. Our friendly staff looks forward to your arrival!
