Nissan Xterra specs

Model overview

The Nissan Xterra is a five-passenger truck-based compact SUV produced and sold by Nissan Motors from 1999–2015 across two generations; the first (1999–2004) sharing a platform the Nissan Frontier pickup – and the second (2005–2015) also sharing its platform with the Frontier. While the two Xterra generations changed significantly, both prioritized affordability over extravagance and used a body-on-frame structure.

Nissan authorized the Xterra name from the XTERRA off-road triathlon race series and produced the SUV at Nissan's Smyrna Assembly, as well as in Canton, Mississippi. Variants were also produced in Brazil and China. Produced at Nissan Design America in La Jolla, California, the Xterra was the original Nissan car completely conceived, developed, and built in the United States. 

The Nissan Xterra is available in three trim levels. The entry-level X and midrange S trims come with rear- or four-wheel drive, while the Pro-4X is four-wheel-drive alone. The Nissan Xterra is powered by a 4.0-liter V6 engine estimated at 261 horsepower and 281 pound-feet of torque. The X and S trim come equipped by default with rear-wheel drive, but a four-wheel-drive system with low-range gearing is optional. The Pro-4X is only possible with a four-wheel drive.
