2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Toyota Highlander near Worcester, MA

When it comes to finding an SUV that can accommodate your whole family in terms of space and performance, the options may seem overwhelming. Here at Milford Nissan, we have put together this comparison of the 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Toyota Highlander near Worcester, MA, to make the decision simple. Once you see how impressive the Pathfinder is, come take it for a test drive!

If your day consists of dropping the kids off at school, picking up groceries, and taking the littles one out for an afternoon at the EcoTarium, you need a vehicle that can keep up. The Pathfinder is the clear winner here, as its base trim comes equipped with a powerful 3.5L V6 engine that can crank out 284-hp and 295 lb.-ft. of torque. The Highlander falls short with only a 2.7L 4-cylinder engine on its lowest trim, which puts out much weaker numbers with 185-hp and 184 lb.-ft. of torque. Thrifty parents will appreciate that the Pathfinder gives you muscle and efficiency with an impressive 27 MPG hwy1. Even though it has a smaller engine, the Highlander will still cost you more trips to the gas station with only 24 MPG hwy2 and a smaller fuel tank.

Versatility is also high on the checklist and the Pathfinder gets another gold star in this 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Toyota Highlander near Worcester, MA, comparison. While both vehicles feature 7-passenger capacity, you’ll have plenty of space for people and gear with 16 cubic ft. behind the third row3 in the Pathfinder. The Highlander, however, may force you to leave someone or something behind with only 13.8 cubic ft. with all seats in place4. Plus, your backseat passengers will get to stretch out and relax with the 41.7 inches of rear legroom that the Pathfinder offers, whereas the Highlander only gives 38.4 inches of rear legroom. If you want to bring your camper out for a weekend at Cascades West Conservation Area, you’ll have the option with the Pathfinder’s superior 6,000-lb. maximum towing capacity5. Even when equipped with the available 3.5L V6 engine on higher trim levels, the best the Highlander can offer is a 5,000-lb. maximum towing capacity6.

It’s easy to understand why we think the Pathfinder is the ideal SUV for your growing family. We hope that our 2017 Nissan Pathfinder vs 2017 Toyota Highlander near Worcester, MA, comparison has helped shed some light on the competition. Come visit us at Milford Nissan soon!

I couldn't be happier about having my services done at Milford Nissan. I always get David and he is great! He is always friendly and welcoming, gets things taken care of right away and it never seems like a long wait time. All the staff there are very friendly, but David is the best. This visit I only got a oil change, tire rotation, and new wipers Thank You for the great service!

I was at Milford Nissan yesterday and purchased a preowned Tesla. It was such a great experience!!!! Everyone there was so nice to us, from our salesman Wayne, and the finance manager Eric. There was another salesman, not ours, that was an electric car expert. He offered to do the delivery and spent a fair amount of time explaining everything about the car. Everyone there was genuinely excited for us and kept raving about how nice the car is. And it is!!!! They were very fair in the amount they offered for my trade. They made this purchase so easy for us. We were there for quite a while, so they fed us lunch!!! I wanted to take the car home but we live in RI so the car needs a VIN check. They wanted me to be happy so they let me take it, and they will meet me at work to take the car for a VIN check so that they can register it for me. I HIGHLY recommend this dealership.

I had an oil change as well as a few minor issues that were taken care of promptly. It took far less time than I had expected. As a side note, I appreciate your new chairs in the waiting area. The other ones were too low and I, as someone with a disability, often had trouble getting out of them. The new ones are much easier for me to deal with.

You can't go wrong with Milford Nissan! Jim Farrell and everyone else at Milford Nissan are ROCKSTARS. (Dan and Chris in the business development office, Tony in finance, Jim in the business office, all the folks I met in service, right down to the friendly lot attendants). I had a 2011 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid with super high mileage that I had dumped a ton of money into on repairs and still owed a lot of money on. The car started acting up again, and I decided I wouldn’t spend another dollar on it. It was time to get out. I had been hunting for the past few months for a reliable small-midsize SUV with low mileage and all the extras my Sonata had. I’m super picky about my vehicles, and I refuse to settle for something less than what I want. I was getting downhearted at other places, thinking there was no way I could get out of my garbage can on wheels unless I traded down in luxury. I had inquired about a car a while back with Milford Nissan, and they continued to follow up. They weren’t too pushy, and they were quick to respond when I had questions – the perfect balance. I really appreciated that, so I decided to stop in on Wednesday evening and take a look at a Certified 2016 Rogue with only 30k miles and all the bells and whistles. I called in to make sure the car was available, and Chris had it pulled right up front for me. I came in and was greeted by the fantastic smile of Tony the finance manager, who connected me with Jim “Jimmy” Farrell – who I can now confidently say is the only guy I’ll ever buy a car from as long as he’s in the business (which from his story – I can imagine will be forever 😊) Jimmy took my fiancé and I on a great test drive, answered all our questions and worked out the numbers with Tony. They got us a GREAT rate, a payment we never imagined would be possible being as upside down as we are and getting into such an awesome vehicle. We signed that night with Jim in the business office. Jimmy said he didn’t want us to spend one more minute in my unreliable car, so we drove home in the Rogue that night. I came back this morning to pick up my registration and get the car inspected and detailed. It all went nice and smooth, like a well-oiled machine, and I am happily on the road with “Lucille”, my new-to-me Rogue. If you're looking for a new or used Nissan, I can't recommend Jim Farrell and the rest of the team at Milford Nissan highly enough. You all have a very happy customer for life! Thank you thank you thank you!

These guys were awesome. They worked really hard to put me in a vehicle, while keeping my budget in mind. They weren't pushy or annoying. Just fully accommodating throughout the whole search and buying process. They got me in an amazing car. Couldn't have asked for better service. I had a nightmare shopping with other dealerships....This one - complete opposite.

This could not have been any easier car buying experience! From the moment we walked in the door Jim Farrell made us feel welcome and at ease. It was a no nonsense deal. He gave us EXACTLY what we were looking for with no hassle and no time consuming negotiations. We were in and out and driving exactly what we wanted before our kids got off the bus that afternoon! Trustworthy and a straight shooter. Jim knows what he’s doing and found me the perfect car.
