Fuel: 16 mpg city / 20 mpg hwy
For 1998, air conditioning is standard on all models, the XE Sport Package is upgraded and an LCD odometer has been added. Also standard on all models is dual air bags, six speaker stereo with CD player and four wheel anti-lock brakes. The anti-lock brake system uses a unique G-sensor that compensates for traveling over loose off-road surfaces and adjusts brakes accordingly. The engine employs SOFIS (Sophisticated Optimized Fuel Injection System) for a precise air/fuel mixture. Standard on 4WD models is a shift-on-the-fly 4WD drive system that can activate 4WD at speeds of up to 50 MPH. The Pathfinder utilizes MonoFrame¬ construction for greater rigidity. Sierra Silver has been added to the list of exterior color choices for 1998.
