2019 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2019 Toyota 4Runner

Serving Chattanooga, TN

Many families enjoy the multipurpose design of a midsize SUV. While you now have more choices than ever before, the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder continues to impress. You’ll appreciate the Pathfinder’s strong acceleration and comfortable seating. A 6,000-pound towing capacity further highlights this SUV’s versatility. Let’s see how the new Pathfinder compares to the 2019 Toyota 4Runner.

Fuel Economy

With the cost of fuel being so expensive, it’s essential to choose a family vehicle that’s good on gas. The 2019 Nissan Pathfinder is engineered to deliver an efficient performance. Nissan’s eco-friendly Xtronic transmission and a smooth V6 engine help you to save extra money at the pump. Look forward to getting an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 27 mpg on the highway. Unfortunately, the Toyota 4Runner is not as frugal. Fuel economy estimates for the 4Runner stand at only 17 mpg in town and 20 mpg on the highway.

Interior & Features

Like the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder, the Toyota 4Runner offers three-row seating. This is a big plus for the drivers who may need to accommodate more people. However, there’s not as much passenger space inside of the 4Runner. Greater legroom makes the Pathfinder a more comfortable vehicle for families. You’ll also appreciate the Pathfinder’s more rewarding list of standard features. While the Pathfinder comes standard with an 8.0-inch touchscreen, Toyota equips the 4Runner with a smaller 6.1 touchscreen. Standard tri-zone automatic climate control gives the Pathfinder another advantage over the 4Runner. To even get keyless ignition and entry on the 4Runner, you must step up to its range-topping Limited trim.


Chosen as a Top Safety Pick by the IIHS, the 2019 Nissan Pathfinder provides the security your family deserves. Because of the 4Runner’s less impressive crash scores, it didn’t qualify as a Top Safety Pick. Furthermore, Toyota does not offer the 4Runner with any active safety technologies aside from parking sensors. Meanwhile, even the base Pathfinder comes standard with automatic emergency braking. Blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic detection is also offered on the Pathfinder. By sensing vehicles hidden in your blind spot, this valuable accident-avoidance feature helps you to maneuver with greater confidence.
