I've been looking for an SUV that looks good and fun to drive and I've found it in the 2005 Xterra. This SUV is awesome with its new upgraded engine,interior, exterior, and a whole lot more. I've been driving this SUV under both street and offroad conditions for the past month and all I have to say is, WOW!!! Its 265HP-V6 has got to be the best upgrade Nissan has given the Xterra. The difference in handling and performance between the 2005 and 2004 model is night and day, not to mention the roominess of the interior compartment!!! If you are looking for a reasonably priced SUV that has everything you'll ever need, you can't go wrong with the 2005 Xterra!! One word - AWESOME!!
