The exciting new 2002 Nissan Xterra SUV dishes out lots
of versatility, with a model to suit each and everyone's
driving requirements in both the performance and luxury
departments. Packing loads of quality and durability for
your hard-earned dollar, the Xterra looks refined yet tough
enough to appear comfortably at the theatre or at the campground.
Ample variety is provided courtesy of three main
models - Xterra XE, Xterra XE V6, and Xterra SE V6. Both
of the six-cylinder models feature four-wheel drive and
also come with the option of a super-charged engine for
those with higher performance demands for their SUV's.
Enter the cabin of the Nissan Xterra SUV and
you'll be welcomed by a roomy interior boasting standards
such as air conditioning, easy-to-clean woven seat cloth,
center console with dual-level storage, six ceiling tie-down
clips, and a 50/50 split folding rear seat. The amenities
continue with removable rear seat cushions and an AM/FM
stereo with CD player and four speakers.
Among the accessories and packages available on the entry-level
model (and either optional or standard on the upper two
models) are such items as a cargo organizer, power windows,
power door locks, cruise control with steering-wheel mounted
controls, and an upgraded sound system.
The sophisticated and handsome Nissan Xterra
wears a tubular roof rack, fifteen-inch steel wheels (sixteen-inch
aluminum alloy wheels on the luxurious SE V6), and black
privacy glass. The Xterra SE V6 also boasts fender lip moldings,
body side moldings, tubular step rails, front tow hook,
fog lights, and dual power outside mirrors.
Beginning with the entry-level Xterra XE SUV,
performance specifications include a 2.4-litre, DOHC, 16-valve
four-cylinder engine that produces 143 horsepower and 154
lb-ft of torque. This two-wheel drive vehicle is well-suited
to city driving and hauling colleagues or kids from place
to place. The standard transmission is five-speed manual.
A significant change in engine capabilities is found in
the next model, the Xterra XE V6 and SE V6, which boost
output to 170 horsepower and 200 lb-ft of torque thanks
to a 3.3-litre, SOHC, 12-valve six-cylinder engine. A SuperCharged
engine is offered as an option and produces 210 horsepower
and 246 lb-ft of torque. For outstanding performance on
challenging terrain, each vehicle is equipped with part-time
four-wheel drive with auto-locking hubs. Standard transmission
is five-speed manual, with four-speed automatic available
as an option. The SE V6 model adds limited slip rear differential.
