The Second-Generation Nissan Pathfinder Has Powerful Engines

The 1990 VG30E engine from the first generation Pathfinder's predecessor was replaced by a 33-liter six-cylinder engine that generated about 168 horsepower at 4800 rpm.

After the first VQ-series 35-liter six-cylinder engine was introduced for the 1999 model year, the exterior of the Pathfinder underwent considerable revision in 2001. 

 The biggest increase in SUV history, output swiftly reached 240 horsepower. When paired with a five-speed manual transmission, 

 the engine generates a powerful 240 pound-feet of torque and an outstanding 250 horsepower. 

 It produces an additional 10 horsepower and 25 pound-feet of torque when mated to an automatic transmission. 

However, it is powerful enough to 

 effectively block the track.
