Vehicle Overview
Redesigned for 2005, Nissan's Xterra is still geared toward the youth market. It's fitted with a standard 4.0-liter V-6 that's rated at 265 horsepower and 284 pounds-feet of torque. Rear- and four-wheel-drive models are offered, and an offroad edition is available. Wheels as large as 17 inches in diameter are offered.

Changes are minor for 2006. A new entry-level X model is available, and S models come standard with the Power Package, which includes keyless entry, cruise control, and power windows, locks and mirrors. Midnight Blue is a new exterior color.


Exterior
The current Xterra's styling is an evolution of the original's. The roof rack includes a latchable lid. Between the large hood and the integrated front bumper is a grille with angled bars that's similar to other sport utility vehicles in Nissan's lineup. The Xterra has a double-wishbone front suspension and a rigid axle in back. Running boards are optional.

Interior
Five occupants fit inside the Xterra. An optional fold-down front passenger seatback for hauling long items can accompany the SUV's standard 60/40-split, folding rear seat.

A double-deck glove box is installed. The Xterra's rear section features an easy-to-clean cargo area floor with an adjustable channel system. Ten utility hooks reside in the cargo area, and a built-in first-aid kit is offered. Audiophiles can enjoy a premium 300-watt Rockford Fosgate-powered system with nine speakers, MP3 capability and steering-wheel controls. Satellite radio is optional.


Under the Hood
Nissan's 4.0-liter V-6 develops 265 hp and 284 pounds-feet of torque. The engine teams with either a five-speed-automatic transmission or a six-speed manual. Available part-time four-wheel drive includes Automatic, 4-High and 4-Low modes.

Safety
Standard all-disc antilock brakes have electronic brake-force distribution and brake assist. Seat-mounted side-impact airbags and side curtain-type airbags are optional. Vehicle Dynamic Control is also available.
