2015 Toyota 4Runner vs 2015 Nissan Pathfinder
There are a lot of people who want a vehicle that they can take to the grocery store when they need to, but can then turn around and on the weekend blast that vehicle over any kind of terrain you can imagine. Unless youre looking into purchasing a truck, the best type of vehicle to do this with is a good old fashion Sport Utility Vehicle equipped for the off-road, something like the 2015 Toyota 4Runner for instance. We wanted to show you some of the advantages of our favorite off-road SUV in comparison to one of its competitors, so we give you the 2015 Toyota 4Runner vs 2015 Nissan Pathfinder.
Off-Road Sport Utility Specs
Taking a look at the table above you can tell that the Toyota 4Runner edges out the Nissan Pathfinder in a number of different categories, but the most impressive is the amount of cargo it can hold regularly. Behind the second row, the 4Runner can hold up to 47.2 cubic feet of your stuff, while the Pathfinder can only manage 16 cu. ft. Thats a pretty big advantage, and even with the seats down the Toyota SUV still has just about 10 extra cubic feet to play with.
The 2015 Toyota 4Runner also has an advantage in terms of power ratings, though its not quite as noticeable. 10 horsepower and 38 foot-pounds of torque isnt going to make a huge difference, but it can certainly help make your drive more enjoyable and easier to get over those tough terrains. And while the Nissan Pathfinder is just fine as an off-road SUV, it doesnt have the Toyota Racing Development badge on it. The TRD trim level of the 4Runner is one of the best off-road vehicles in the industry, adding all kinds of great features to the vehicle to make off-roading that much easier and exciting.
So if you want a vehicle that you can use to go shopping as well as take mudding on the weekends for a great time, then the 2015 Toyota 4Runner is the smarter SUV choice, especially the TRD trim level.
