What is the oil type for the 2018 Nissan Pathfinder?

I’ve been driving my mom’s 2018 Nissan Pathfinder a bunch, and I want to stock it up with oil to keep it in good shape. What kind do I need to buy?

The oil type for the 2018
Nissan Pathfinder
is SAE 0W-20. Like most manufacturers, Nissan recommends using full synthetic motor oil (rather than conventional) since it’s the healthiest for your car. It’ll cost a few dollars more, but you won’t need to complete your oil changes as frequently.
