2011 Nissan Xterra – Click above for high-res image gallery

You can quit biting your nails waiting for Nissan to unveil pricing information on the 2011 Pathfinder, Xterra, Frontier and Altima. The company has just announced that, starting next year, the Pathfinder will start at $27,840 for the two-wheel drive, V6 S model. That marks a $300 increase over the 2010 version. Topped out, the SUV will set you back $42,600 for the four-wheel drive V8 LE.

Meanwhile, the base, two-wheel drive Xterra X commands an MSRP of $23,850, which is about $1,100 more than the outgoing model. Option up to the range-topping four-wheel drive PRO-4X with an automatic gearbox, and you can expect to hand over $30,100 of your hard-earned cash.

If a pickup is more your flavor, Nissan will let you hop into a Frontier S King Cab two-wheel drive for $17,750, though the topped-out SL Crew Cab with four-wheel drive, long-wheelbase chassis and a V6 engine coupled to a five-speed automatic gearbox will cost significantly more at $31,630.

Finally, the company has priced the 2011 Nissan Altima sedan at $19,900 when equipped with a 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a CVT gearbox. Look to pay $22,940 for the Altima Coupe and $26,780 for the hybrid sedan.

None of the prices above include destination, so you can expect things to be just a bit more expensive by the time you leave the dealer lot with keys in hand. Hit the jump for the full press release.

The 2011 Pathfinder is built on a high-strength, fully boxed, all-steel frame based on the full-size Nissan Armada SUV.

The refined interior offers a range of amenities, including available leather-appointed seating, heated steering wheel, Nissan Intelligent Key(TM) with twist start, Nissan Navigation System with 9.3GB Music Box® Hard Drive, Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, XM® Satellite Radio (XM® subscription required, sold separately) and RearView Monitor.

      Ouch. I don't understand those price hikes in this economy. Do they really expect sales gains with this?
      • 4 Years Ago
      Nissan USA - please bring the xtrail

      Its what most normal use ppl want, a soft runner - the rogue is too soft

      Then Nissan Canada can follow up and bring back the xtrail
      • 4 Years Ago
      The new Nissan Atlima is OK. The price range is fine with its features. But it won't change much from the 2010 model, either - the only changes for the gas-electric Altima next year are three new exterior colors - two shads of silver and one apparently sandy tone called Saharan Stone.
      • 4 Years Ago
      dear nissan

      please redesign the altima

      please drop your horrid cvt

        • 4 Years Ago
        I sampled the CVT in a rented Sentra--it pulled strong and achieved over 30 mpg. Seems alright to me.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Honestly, CVTs have their place in the market, especially the daily driver market. They sound new and neat so commuters love them. So really, I have no gripe.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Both our '07 Altima and '10 Maxima have the CVT and it's a fine trans. I especially like how the electronic 'gears' work in my Maxima. Since Nissan has backed it up with a 10 year/120,000 mile warranty, I guess they have a lot of faith in it also.
        • 4 Years Ago
        TBH the CVT in this generation of Nissans isn't that bad. I've driven one and it's fine, definately better than the '98 Nissan Quest I drove the other day lmao
      • 4 Years Ago
      When I searched for the pricing of Frontier, I found that the 2011 Nissan Frontier is offered in King Cab and Crew Cab configuration and in 2, SV, PRO-4X and SL models (the SL is only available for the Crew Cab). The King Cab can be ordered with a 152 hp four-cylinder unit or with a 261 hp 4.0 liter V6 engine. The vehicle’s pricing starts at $17,750 and tops at $28,870 for the King Cab version with the Crew Cab retailing for between $21,760 and $31,630. And I think their price is worth it.
      • 4 Years Ago
      The writer of this article is very misleading on the on the pricing of the base model 2WD Xterra X going up 1,100.00. It is not a valid price comparison. He is obviously comparing a manual transmission with an automatic transmission. According to NissanUSA.com The outgoing 2010 2WD Manual Tran. X base MSRP is 22,750, which according to the article IS NOT offered in 2011. The proper comparison would be with the Outgoing 2010 2WD Auto Trans. X with a base MSRP of 23,550. and the New 2011 2WD Auto Trans. X with a MSRP of 23,850, a difference of ONLY 300.00. This is the new pricing stated in the press release, which if you follow down to beneath the article and under the picture gallery, there is a link to the press release that specifies the new pricing. Also to each of these prices there is that cute little 800.00 Destination and Handling they tack on to every new cars MSRP. Looking at all the model price increases, it seems that they are a few hundred bucks more on average. The Xterra SE and Off Road was also cut from the line for 2011, and added what they call the Pro-4X. The 2010 Off Road with MT was 29,500 and the New 2011 Pro-4X with MT is 29,050, 450.00 less. I was assuming that the Pro-4x was going to be the equivalent of the discontinued Off Road Xterra. Obviously not at the lower price. I suppose some of the standard features will now only be available as options.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I really do hope for the best for Nissan's SUV/truck lineup. I have a friend who considers his XTerra (an older model) to be the best vehicle he's ever owned. It really is a nice set of vehicles. I kinda like the little side step for their SUVs and the small compartment box on the trucks. I never have owned a Nissan SUV or truck, but I've been considering one as a little toy for the farm.
      • 4 Years Ago
      A $1,100 price hike for the Xterra? A $1,100 price hike with NO additional features or content to justify it? Are they nuts?!?!?

      I wouldn't buy it out of principal for that reason alone. Good grief!!!
        • 4 Years Ago
        it not that much of a hike and look around almost all msrp's have gone up.
        • 4 Years Ago
        That is an insane hike for absolutely NO changes.

        $200 is acceptable, $1,100 is not.
      • 4 Years Ago
      I agree, $1100 price increase on a model that is rumored to get axed doesn't bode will for consumers. If anything, the incentives will come in as soon as that news is released. And really, there's more competitive products out there...
        • 4 Years Ago
        "Such as...?"

        ... A 4runner Trail Edition that starts $3k lower than the quoted, top of the line, Pro-X / Offroad Xterra.

        As good as the Xterra once was (I'm an ex owner), it just isn't that special anymore. There's not a single thing that it does, that a JK 4 door (better offroad), 4Runner (more room), or Grand Cherokee (comfier IRS/IFS) can't do, sometimes better.

        Nissan needs to LOWER its price to remain competitive, not raise it.
        • 4 Years Ago
        The FJ cru....oh never mind. The x is actually in a class of its own, especially considering that it holds up really well.
        • 4 Years Ago
        Such as...? The rugged XTerra is in a very small class. What does it compete against that presents a better option? It has true off-road capability in the spirit of the dead Cherokee. Now, there's a four-door Wrangler with a hardtop or maybe the Liberty. Otherwise, you're looking at a cute-ute. True, the XTerra probably sees as much off-road duty as many soft-roaders.

        That said, I would be surprised to see this sell without incentives.
      • 4 Years Ago
      Is there a reason for such a large price increase on the Xterra? Do the models differ that greatly or are they just jacking the price up?

      I know I've probably missed some news somwhere...
        • 4 Years Ago
        I'm really excited for the Juke, to be honest. It is right in my price range and it looks like nothing on the street. Want to see one in real life, though.
        • 4 Years Ago
        May be it's because the Japanese Yen is too high right now compared to United States dollar.
        • 4 Years Ago
        My guess , just a good jack. the xterra is not a bad SUV though. It is one of the few nissan's that have aged well for the old age of its design . I guess few automakers can make new products cost wise in this recession, i just wonder how longer these nissan's will last in sales before a real redesign is made or cause nissan to loose more sales. if I was to buy a nissan, this xterra or the sentra would be my only two choices for a nissan
      • 4 Years Ago
      This is boring. Can we have some Stig news please?
