Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP), also known as "sticker" price, is a recommended selling price that automakers give a new car that is above the invoice price paid by the dealer. It is a price that does not include any options that can be added to a particular car style. When shown as a range, the prices are starting MSRPs, without options, for multiple styles for that model.
This price range reflects for-sale prices on Cars.com for this particular make, model and year.
Best Bets get above-average mpg, class-average or better reliability, class-average or better crash-test ratings, and our recommendation.
These city and highway gas mileage estimates are for the model's standard trim configurations. Where there are optional features, packages or equipment that result in higher gas mileage, those fuel-economy estimates are not included here.

Vehicle Overview Nissan's truck-based Xterra is geared toward young, active buyers — or those who want to appear that way. A standard 4.0-liter V-6 drives either the rear or all four wheels. Unlike some SUVs, it's a truly capable off-roader, with an available Off Road edition. The other trim levels are X, S and SE. Its competitors include the Toyota FJ Cruiser and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
New for 2010 There are no significant changes to the 2010 Nissan Xterra.
Exterior The Xterra's styling is evolutionary, mimicking the original's design heritage. The Xterra is defined by its standard tubular roof rack and stepped roofline. All Xterras have short front overhangs — the distance between the front of the wheel well and the front of the SUV — and this helps in off-road situations.
Optional running boards
Optional bodyside moldings
Roof-mounted off-road lights (Off Road)
Available 16- or 17-inch alloy wheels
Interior Five people fit inside the Xterra. An optional fold-down front passenger seat that allows for hauling long items can accompany the SUV's standard 60/40-split folding backseat. Options include an upgraded audio system and a system of rails in the cargo floor for lashing down items.
Remote keyless entry, cruise control and auto-dimming rearview mirror
Double-deck glove box
Available leather-appointed seating
Under the Hood Nissan's 4.0-liter V-6 is the only engine offered. It develops 261 horsepower and 281 pounds-feet of torque.
Six-speed manual transmission
Optional five-speed automatic transmission
Available part-time four-wheel drive
Double-wishbone front suspension and multi-leaf solid rear axle
Safety Standard safety features include:
Electronic stability system
Antilock disc brakes with electronic brake-force distribution
Seat-mounted side-impact airbags for the front seats and side curtain airbags for both rows
