2007 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
We have owned 5 Jeeps, Land Cruiser, Explorer,Sequoia, etc. XTerra offers Excellent power,very comfortable and quiet compared to '7 Wrangler 4dr. Flexible, convenient,roomy interior design with good visibility and real 4 dr.access, especially compared to FJ. RF Audio has good sound quality. Our thorough test drives, on and off pavement through the WY mtns., revealed good ride and handling for a genuine, seriously off-roadable 4x4. OR model comes well equipped for offroading yet is comfortable on pavement and Interstate. Not A Car Based Poser. Very good value for the money.
Acceleration for merging and passing. Interior and rack versatility. Quiet, Comfortable interior. Rockford Fosgate Stereo(expensive, but better than some other factory units). Thorough package of off-road features in the OR model, plus VDC in wet, ice and slush.
Give up some rack flexibility for a Sunroof. Height adjustable passenger seat. A front locking differential option would be nice.
