The Xterra is the most rugged, adventure-oriented SUV that Nissan offers, a truly "go anywhere" vehicle designed for the outdoors and an active lifestyle. The Xterra is offered in both rear-wheel (4x2) and four-wheel drive configurations, with a choice of three trim levels: X, S and PRO-4X (4x4 only). All models are powered by a 261-hp 4.0-liter V6 engine, while available transmissions include a six-speed manual or a five-speed automatic. Building on the value-oriented X trim, the S adds a roof rack, 16-inch aluminum wheels, 8-way driver seat, satellite radio, 4.3-inch color display and easy clean rear cargo area. For the off-road enthusiast, the PRO-4X trim is exclusively fitted with a locking rear differential, upgraded shocks, skid plates, all-terrain tires and roof-mounted lamps; additional features include a premium audio system with 6-disc CD changer, along with a navigation system that includes a 5.8-inch color display, real-time traffic information and NissanConnect, offering wireless audio streaming, selective internet access, and smartphone integration. Standard safety equipment includes anti-lock disc brakes, stability control with integrated traction control and tire pressure monitoring, as well as front, side-impact and overhead curtain airbags. For 2014, a rearview camera monitor is now standard on PRO-4X trims. The Nissan Xterra carries over with minor changes for 2014. The X and S trims get enhanced standard equipment, including Bluetooth wireless connectivity, steering wheel audio controls, and an overhead console with sunglass holder, while heated front seats are added to the PRO-4X. The X trim also gets a new AM/FM/CD audio unit with auxiliary input and USB port.
