I don't know bout 2013 models, but about 2000 I was driving ML, while my ski buddy had new Pathfinder.
When 4 good sized adults were comfortable in ML, they had no knee room in Pathfinder, that was bottoming up on freeway bumps just too often.
Things change from MY to MY, so this is always variable.
My other vehicles are Ford Superduty. I can't imagine you'd complain about lack of room in one of those and starting around 2012 Ford finally was able to make good diesel engine for their truck. Took them slightly over 100 years, but they got there.
