2005 Nissan Xterra Off-Road 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


I wanted the most capable off-road vehicle without having to modify. Think Jeep Rubicon capability in a far more reliable and refined truck that also seats five. I live in Colorado where off-roading is a passion. With rear lockers, hill descent control, 9.5" of ground clearance and the new 4.0 265 HP engine, you have one rugged and extremely capable 4x4. Pleasant and fun on-road with a well thought out no-nonsense interior and full instrumentation. A winning combination all around. My Xterra has been 100% reliable with no mechanical or fit and finish issues. The Xterra has exceeded all my expectations.

Best Features

The standard off-road enhancements such as rear locker, Bilstein shocks, hill descent and high ground clearance.

Worst Features

Go one step further on the tires with BF Goodrich All Terrain vs the Rugged Trail on the OR version.
