01 Xterra V6 4x4
By Mitch on
Vehicle
2001 Nissan Xterra XE 4WD 4dr SUV (3.3L 6cyl 5M)
Review
I have driven my Xterra cross country 3 times now and have taken numerous road trips. It is a great vehicle from every standpoint. The gas mileage is ok but is improved with small aftermarket parts. I off road often and have a Rancho lift kit and run LT 285s on the Xterra. Once in 4lo, the Xterra is unstoppable. Even when it was stock, it was very dependable off road. I like how the seats give you a commanding view of the road and are very comfortable. The 3.3L V6 is underpowered but matched with the 5 speed manual tranny, it does well enough. The Supercharged version that came out a few years later would be the way to go. It puts out 210 hp I believe. Either way, the Xterra is a great suv.
Favorite Features
Great 4x4, comfortable interior, tons of room, handy steering wheel controls.
Suggested Improvements
The Xterra needed more power which is why Nissan introduced a supercharged version and then the new 05 and up Xterras have the new 4.0 V6 with 261 hp.
