Nissan Xterra

Nissan Xterra

A rugged, no-nonsense, truck-based sports utility, Xterra may be the automotive equal to a pack of Lucky Strike unfiltered cigarettes - not for cissies. Standing high and proud, with overtly aggressive styling along with a functional menace, the equipment surprises by lacking permanent four wheel drive.

Instead, it comes down standard with rear drive in the 4.0 litre engine. If you would like 4x4 capability you need to order up that option.

Transmissions are five speed auto or six speed manual, and suspension is independent in front and leaf springs in the back - in other words designed for durability instead of for comfort. As long as they can get within the stigma of driving-a "Nee-san" this is actually the preferred transport of wranglers and cowpokes.
