Nissan Xterra Simplified SUV

The new mid-size SUV Nissan Xterra 2001 is mounted on a chassis borrowed from the compact Nissan Frontier pickup.

The car was designed specifically for the American market in the California design studio company Nissan.

Like the Jeep Cherokee, which became the “younger brother” of the more expensive Grand Cherokee, the Nissan Xterra 2001 is a bit lower than the more expensive Nissan Pathfinder.

Xterra is designed for younger and less affluent buyers. At the lowest step of the price plate, the SE version is a two-wheel drive, four-cylinder engine.

At the top of the stairs is a version with a V-6 powertrain, automatic transmission, all-wheel drive and more comfort. In this case, the price does not reach the range of $ 25,000.
Xterra is equipped with powerful Nissan engines:
The 3.3-liter, with 170 horsepower V-6 powertrain develops 200 Nm of torque at 1,500 rpm. In combination with an automatic transmission, it is installed on more expensive Xterra models.
A less powerful 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is placed on the model of the lower price scale.

Safety for the driver and passengers of the Xterra is provided, along with a sturdy and rigid body, reinforced inserts in the doors and anti-lock braking system, two frontal airbags. The front seatbelts have automatic tensioning.

The interior is spartan simple and follows the design form “form for functionality”.

Configuration options:
XE – basic 4×2 version. Equipped with a 4-cylinder 2.4 liter engine, ABS system on all wheels. The cost is about $ 18,000.
The XE-V6 is a more charged model of the Xterra family. There is a 4×2 version, and in the 4×4 version. It has a more powerful 3.3-liter engine. The cost for the option V6 4×2 – about $ 19,000. The cost for the V6 4×4 version with an automatic transmission is about $ 21,000.
SE – version, standing on the top of the scale. Equipped with a 3.3-liter 170 hp. V-6 powertrain. The cost for the option V6 4×2 – about $ 23,000. The cost for the V6 4×4 version with an automatic transmission is about $ 25,000.
