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 2007 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 '07 version is mostly a carryover, with changes consisting of standard mud guards on four-wheel-drive models, the addition of an auxiliary iPod jack to the optional Rockford Fosgate premium audio system on SE models and standard leather-wrapped steering wheel for SE Off Road models. 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. Available options include front-side and side curtain airbags with rollover protection and XM or Sirius satellite radio.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
