It can be rather underwhelming to buy a large SUV with 3rd row seating, only to realize that you can’t afford to fuel it! People are specifically keen on buying SUVs with 3rd row seating that also have great fuel economy.
As it turns out, one of the SUVs with 3rd row seating and great fuel economy is the 2011 Nissan Pathfinder. One would actually expect this SUV, powered by a 4 liter v6 engine to be a fuel guzzler. But it turns out to be one of the SUVs with 3rd row seating that use fuel in a remarkably economical manner. This SUV is able to do 15 miles per gallon in city roads. The 2011 Nissan Pathfinder is also able to do 22 miles per gallon on highways.
Other lovely things about the 2011 Nissan Pathfinder include:

The automatic transmission also helps in maintaining the fuel economy — because with an automatic system, the vehicle automatically selects the gear that ensures optimal fuel usage in a given situation.
- Its considerable engine power: at an engine speed of 5,600 revolutions per minute, the 2011 Nissan Pathfinder is capable of pumping out some 266 Horse Power units, which is just about as much power as most SUV drivers ever require.
- Its impressive appearance: whether you look at it from outside or from inside, the 2011 Nissan Pathfinder is an elegant vehicle. It is clearly a well designed vehicle, and one that has seems to be crafted to age gracefully.
- Its affordable price: okay, one has to admit that the 2011 Nissan Pathfinder is not exactly a very cheap vehicle. But when you look at the price tag of this 7 passenger SUV with its features in view as well, the price actually makes it come across as a vehicle sold at a remarkably low price.
