Comparison Review

Comfort
The Ford Bronco offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Nissan Pathfinder, with comparable head- and legroom. The Nissan Pathfinder will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Ford Bronco.

Convenience
With the Nissan Pathfinder, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Ford Bronco, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). The Ford Bronco is somewhat more expensive than the Nissan Pathfinder. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Ford Bronco is much higher than that for the Nissan Pathfinder.

Dimensions
Since the Ford Bronco is much slimmer than the Nissan Pathfinder, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the Ford Bronco, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Nissan Pathfinder.

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Ford Bronco will do just as well as the Nissan Pathfinder, since they have about the same towing capacity. The Ford Bronco has a little less horsepower than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the Ford Bronco transmits power to its wheels a bit more effectively than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Utility
Soccer Moms beware - the Ford Bronco seats a lot fewer people than the Nissan Pathfinder. The Ford Bronco has significantly less cargo capacity than the Nissan Pathfinder.

Warranty
The Ford Bronco comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Nissan Pathfinder.
