In this 2020 Nissan Pathfinder vs. Ford Explorer review, we will compare starting MSRP, cargo volume, passenger room, power, available features, and more. By the end of this article, you'll see where the 2020 Pathfinder outperforms the 2020 Ford Explorer.

Why Choose The Nissan Pathfinder Over The Ford Explorer?

For starters, the new Nissan costs $5,000 less than the Ford, and you get a bigger engine. While both vehicles provide seating for up to seven, the Nissan has a greater passenger volume than the Ford. When considering which new SUV will be more comfortable for your passengers, choose the Nissan. The Pathfinder also has a greater cargo capacity than the Explorer. Once again, when you want an adventure-ready SUV, you want the new Pathfinder.

Two more areas where the Pathfinder beats the Explorer is in towing capacity and fuel capacity. Not only can the Pathfinder tow more than the Explorer, with a bigger fuel tank, but it also allows for longer between fill-ups. When you want SUV-sized performance and capability, you want the new Nissan Pathfinder.
