Nissan is taking the next big on the evolution of the fourth-generation Pathfinder with the introduction of the new 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid at the New York Auto Show today. The Pathfinder Hybrid is the first model to debut Nissan’s new hybrid system.

The hybrid system is made up of a 2.5L supercharged four-cylinder gas engine and a electric motor paired with a compact Lithium-ion battery. Total output stands at 250 horsepower and 243 pound-feet of torque. That power is routed through Nissan’s Xtronic CVT to either the front wheels or all four wheels.

The system also features Nissan’s Intelligent Dual Clutch System. Positioned between the engine and CVT, the system manages power from both the electric motor and the gas engine to have them running at most efficent. The system also acts a generator, collecting energy from the CVT.

Fuel economy numbers are estimated to be 25 City/27 Highway/26 Combined. With a 19.5 gallon gas tank, Nissan says the 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid can travel up 526 miles on one tank. The Hybrid can also tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped.

The 2014 Pathfinder Hybrid arrives this summer.

      The current Nissan Frontier has been with us for over a decade and not much has changed with it. It has put Nissan well behind the pack of newer models from GM, Honda, and Toyota. Back in April, Nissan's North America vice president Christian Meunier the Frontier has future, hinting to us that a new model is on the horizon.
      Car and Driver reports that Nissan has officially announced that a new Frontier is coming and will be built at the company's Canton, Mississippi plant - currently home to the current model. Nissan also said that the arrival of the new Frontier is more than a year away.
      Not much more information was given on the next Frontier. A previous rumor had Nissan using the Navara pickup sold elsewhere in the world. But as we reported back in April, Meunier put a stop to this idea. He explained that the Navara was more of lifestyle vehicle, like a Honda Ridgeline. The next Frontier would be a true truck. Though we're wondering if Nissan's North America office has ever driven the Navara as reviews have it being as capable and riding as well as the Frontier.

      Leaf 2.0 Spec's Leak Online

      Spy's seem to be getting the upper hand at Nissan or Nissan is deciding to take an aggressive attack on controlling the release of data about the Nissan Leaf 2.0. While the rumors of multiple size of batteries is unconfirmed and no comment from Nissan since earlier this year word of a 340 mile battery pack option would be available, we do have confirmed base starting points for the price at each of the three trim levels.
      Leaf 2.0 will have the following specifications:
      147 HP with 236 pound feet of torque
      Base Battery is 40 kWh
      Base Trim starting price:
      S - $29,990
      SV - $32,490
      SL - $36,200
      Curb Weight 3,433
      Full reveal to the public - September 5th 2017
      You can click review the full details of the Leaf 2.0 here at the Autoblog story. It gives full details about the car and some are rather interesting. Example is that the Chevrolet Bolt has a 10" screen and the Leaf 2.0 is showing a 5" screen. Interior cargo capacity is 30 cubic feet. HP is a bump up from Leaf 1.0 as they go from 107 and 187 to 147 and 236. Yet this is a far cry from the Bolts 200 and 266. Also we now know that the Leaf 2.0 will have a 40kWh base battery compared to 60kWh for the Bolt and the Tesla 3's 50 kWh base battery or 75 kWh battery option. The leaf will have a standard 36 month or 36,000 mile warranty and 60 month or 60,000 mile power train warranty. 
      Leaf 2.0 kicks the Bolt's and Tesla 3's butt is in pricing with a base starting price of $29,990 compared to Bolts $37,495 base price and Tesla 3 $35,000 base price even though you have to wait till end of 2018 to get a base Tesla 3 and these prices are before any federal and or state rebates / credits.

      Based on the carscoop's story they have taken the cameo and a Photoshop job of what they expect the final Leaf 2.0 to look like.
