2010 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
I went from a Frontier to upgrading to the Xterra Off Road and WOW. This vehicle is an incredible performer on and off road. It's filled with everything you need like hill-descent assist, locking diffs, 4X4, lots of space and cargo hold, and nothing you don't. The seats fold completely flat, the roof rack has plenty of room for the kayaks, and the awesome 4.0 V6 has more than enough power to tow my 26 ft sailboat. I can't say enough about how smooth this truck rides and how well it conquers terrain off road. Surprisingly, I have been averaging 20mpg. I thought I would have done much worse, but it just makes this rig that much sweeter. Nissan's 4.0L is indestructible. Highly recommend!
Awesome engine, towing, driving performance, the roof racks, cargo space, fold-flat seating, Rockford Fosgate sound system, off road lamps, and the way it feels so solid.
the interior plastics scratch too easily, interior could benefit from stronger materials and a sunroof or skylights would be neat.
