2005 Nissan Xterra Off-Road Rwd 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 6M)

Review

This 2006 Motor Trend Sport/Utility of the Year boasts a powerful 4.0-liter, 265-horsepower DOHC V-6 engine that puts out 284 pound-feet of torque and is fun to get dirty. The Xterra will suffer most at the gas pump. The car gets an EPA-tested 16 mpg in the city and 21 mpg on the highway, but those who haul heavy stuff or play a lot off-road will see those numbers go even lower. Front-passenger seats have decent support and are large enough to accommodate most adults, but the backseat in particular is small and cramped, and it offers little legroom. The most disappointing thing about the 2006 Nissan Xterra by far is its gas mileage.

Favorite Features

Large rearview mirrors and good window placement and design minimize blind spots. The four-wheel antilock braking system uses electronic brake-force distribution to help all wheels brake equally. 0 to 60 in 7 seconds.

Suggested Improvements

Leather seat covers.
