Richard Gard says:

Dave – If you shut off the TC, would that help to keep the engine pushing
the wheels? I know theoretically the computers should know the limits, but
sometimes offroad having no systems engaged is a better option. Since
these vehicles don’t have real locking diffs, maybe it doesn’t matter one
way or the other. Whats your thoughts?

brocky says:

You don’t get enough credit for these awesome videos. 

senorgato70 says:

I think it’s a draw. But, I wouldn’t be interested in either. If I HAD to
choose between the two, it would be the Pathfinder. The Kia is nicely
finished inside, but the exterior is dated and it’s smaller. 

jorge romani says:

That hill was too muddy, I would really like to see the Pilot try it again.
Maybe the Pilot has better tires……

TheBushnut says:

also neither have a true low range gear box.

Ali Sayfi says:

your video was great and was worth my time….thanks…good luck

Hayden Relyea says:

my 2wd 2013 pathfinder has done all but 2 of those things….

Lauryn Howard says:


TheBushnut says:

neither of these vehicles are off road worthy. the old R50 had 9inches of
ground clearance and almost 16inches of break over clearance. these are
highway vehicles with a 4wd option for safety only.

weldee says:

I”m not an “off roader”. Drove my son’s 13 Pathfinder a few times and found
it to be quit nice. But when I replaced my 12 Nissan Juke I went for an 11
Sorento EX. Totally prefer the Sorento by a large margin over the
Pathfinder and the Juke even tho it is a couple of years older.

Anthony Cuda says:

Forester vs CRV? 

TheGearHead48 says:

Did you find that go pro that fell in that “pond” from the 4runner

maths turg says:

traction control on!!….. off-roading with the traction control on…..

Blair Long says:

Dave, both of these units have locking center diffs. Did you engage them?
Based on wheel slip on the videos.. I’m guessing not. You also noted the
Honda was able to make the grade… but you never seem to mention the tires
on your testers. The Honda had M+S Michelin LTX tires. These two units
had mild all season tires. 

MultiRyan2112 says:

I know the pathfinder is appealing to it’s market like but it’s no longer
an SUV for me, more of a minivan on stilts

MrTororosso1 says:

First of all, that was a joy to watch. Secondly, I ddint give Nissan much
of a chance but after those multiple Sorento fails, no doubt Pathfinder
earned its name vs Kia.

diddiloc says:

Gotta go with the pathfinder, AWD lock in low Gear and it would’ve done a
better Job, and it’s way bigger than the Kia! Not in it’s class, Toyota
highlander, explorer is

jhphoto77 says:

I’d love to see you do a review and some comparisons/offroad review of the
2014 Dodge Durango (V8, AWD preferably)

EliteMmbiz says:

I like it! About to watch Everywoman Driver too. 🙂 Keep up the good work

kossak007 says:

I doubt a car with a light colored interior like the Pathfinder has was
designed with off-roading in mind.
And like others said, it looks way too feminine in this generation. 

dan burns says:

This nissian review is the same as the one before!

tinker1148 says:

Dave, if you would disable the traction control on every vehicle you test
here (to keep it fair) you wouldn’t lose engine power (and thus momentum)
when going up those hills.

Matthew Decker says:

You put two videos together! :(

MrRussian2023 says:

What about the 4runner you didn’t really finish the review would really
like to see a 0-60

Ivan Vojt says:

Dave you need a 4WD Pilot on standby.

aaronvitolins says:

You never mentioned this, but doesn’t the Kia have an AWD lock button? Or
atleast I thought it.. I maybe crazy though! I know the older Hyundai
veracruz had a pretty good locking AWD system

Kalahari Willis says:

Sorento all the way !!! #south korea

Richard R says:

Maybe if the Sorento went 1st up that hill, it would of made it. Seems like
the pathfinder made deeper ruts and loosened things up too much trying to
get up that hill. I’ll take the Sorento. The Pathfinder is too feminine
looking, but more important, I would never buy a vehicle with a CVT. That
engine drone would drive me crazy. Someone please tell me why CVT’s are
becoming more popular? Don’t give me that mpg excuse either.

gidva says:

In a professional review! They have to make sure that the traction control
is of and obstacles are taken at the same speeds.

UNMsmith says:

You should take the Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid out on this course.

evgenisib7 says:

I’ll take that Sorrento any day over that Pathfinder

Brian Leong says:

Nissan is better 

B Lange says:

For this piece, I feel the Sorento is the best. The only way to know for
sure though is to get identical tires on both vehicles and standardize the
testing by using cones to mark start distance and end distance. Overall
(and I’m biased because I own the SXL Sorento), I think the Sorento is

Oscar Holmgren says:

The Nissan had a better awd system but the sorento is still more capable 

1911z4ever says:

The Sorento has a center diff lock. Was it engaged ?

MrRussian2023 says:


UNMsmith says:

I absolutely love these reviews!
