ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION
2008 Nissan Xterra

by Marty Padgett

The second generation of Nissan's back-to-basics mid-size Xterra sport-utility vehicle made its debut at mid-year 2005 with added interior room, freshened styling, and more power.

It is built on the Frontier pickup's platform and comes with the same basic 4.0-liter V-6 engine (though rated in this case at 261 horsepower vs. 266 in the Frontier) mated to either a six-speed manual or five-speed automatic transmission.

The 2008 Xterra is offered in three models - X, S, Off-Road , and SE. All four are available in 4x4 models and all but the Off-Road model are available with rear-wheel drive.

The '08 version beefs up the standard equipment on the X, S, and SE models. The X editions add power windows/locks/mirrors, remote keyless, entry and cruise control to their standard gear. The S models add step rails, a cargo net, a first-aid kit, and on 4x4 versions, splash guards. Lastly, the SE editions add on standard Bluetooth, XM pre-wiring (automatic models only), an auto-dimming mirror, and an eight-speaker Rockford Fosgate stereo.

Standard safety equipment includes four-wheel anti-lock disc brakes with Electronic Brakeforce Distribution and Brake Assist, and VDC control; curtain airbags are available optionally. Models with either of the two available four-wheel-drive systems also get an Active Brake Limited Slip function. As befits its rugged character, a first-aid kit is included.

The interior includes an adjustable channel system in the cargo hold for securing bike racks and sports gear, and a total of ten utility hooks. A 60/40-split folding rear seat, folding front passenger seat, double-deck glovebox, and large center console add to the vehicle's overall utility.

Prices for the 2008 Xterra start at $21,130 for the Xterra 4x2 X with a six-speed manual transmission, and rise to $27,330 for the Xterra 4x4 Off-Road model with a five-speed automatic transmission with standard Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist.
