both the Frontier and Pathfinder have VQ40's, yet Nissan claims the Pathfinder has
270 HP while the Frontier has 265.

what is the difference? aren't the VQ40's the same?

I noticed that too in the commercials.

Just a guess but: perhaps the Frontier was tuned for more low-end torque for towing and hauling. Whereas the Pathfinder is unlikely to tow or carry as much gear as the Frontier.

The difference is in the weight. The ECU are programmed different and the pathfinder uses premium gas unlike the regular in the frontier.
