Looking for a great SUV that will take you anywhere you want to go in the Jacksonville and Palm Coast area with plenty of room and safety features? The 2016 Toyota 4Runner and the 2015 Nissan Pathfinder are two of the most popular SUVs around, but you’ll need to choose between them! Let Beaver Toyota guide you through your choice with this handy comparison guide.

Performance

The 2016 Toyota 4Runner boasts a truly impressive 4.0L V6 engine with direct overhead cam shaft build and dual independent variable valve timing with intelligence for a more efficient and powerful engine. It produces 270 hp and 278 lb-ft of torque, and comes with a 5-speed electronically controlled automatic transmission with intelligence and a sequential shift mode. You can choose between a standard suspension, a Kinetic Dynamic Suspension System for the Trail that helps you rove over hill and dale or an X-Reas Sport Enhancement Suspension for the Limited for a more responsive ride.The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder features a smaller, less powerful engine with a 3.5L gas tank and 6 cylinders. It only produces 260 hp and 240 lb-ft of torque, and comes with variable valve timing without the intelligence system. You’ll get a standard independent suspension system on each level of trim, rather than a suspension system keyed to the use of the vehicle as with the 4Runner.

Features

The 2016 Toyota 4Runner has plenty of great features to make forging a trail over rough terrain easy and safe. The multi-terrain select system lets you choose four different drive modes which adjust the torque, throttle setting, and traction control to help you adjust to any terrain. You’ll also get a 40/20/40 fold-flat second-row seat system that allows you to create up to 88 cubic feet of cargo space for all of your gear hauling needs, whether you’re on a shopping trip or out camping!The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder also boasts a selectable driver mode control, but only with three modes, and only if you spring for the all wheel drive option–you can choose from two-wheel mode, four-wheel mode, or the “auto” mode that takes control out of your hands. While the Pathfinder does allow you to fold the back seats flat, you’ll have to fold the entire bench down, leaving fewer options for passengers and cargo to rub shoulders. It also only provides you with 79 cubic feet of space for your stuff, far less than the 4Runner.

Safety

The 2016 Toyota 4Runner keeps you safe with eight strategically placed airbags, as well as side-impact door beams located inside the doors to absorb impact and keep you safe from intruding objects that might hurt you. In addition, Toyota’s Star Safety System uses vehicle stability and traction control, as well as four different brake systems, to keep you safe and in control of your vehicle–no other car can boast that! You’ll also get a standard backup camera with sonar sensors to warn you when there are obstacles in your path.The 2015 Nissan Pathfinder does have a set of standard traction control systems such as anti-lock braking, which comes standard on all modern vehicles as a safety measure. Nissan has not provided information about the precise number of airbags included on its standard Pathfinder build.
