It looks like the new 2024 Nissan Pathfinder® has no competition this year — certainly not the new 2024 Toyota Highlander. In several key areas, the Nissan Pathfinder® outperforms and outshines the Toyota Highlander, most notably in the differences of their starting MSRPs. At $36,650,1 the Nissan Pathfinder® is a sure choice, more than $2,500 less than the Toyota Highlander.2 It’s a significant amount, especially since the Nissan Pathfinder® has a more powerful available engine, a higher maximum available towing capacity and more speakers in its best available audio system. The Toyota Highlander lags behind at a maximum available 5,000-pound towing capacity,4 a smaller available engine and only has 11 speakers in its available JBL® Premium Audio System.
