2012 Nissan Xterra Features

Features

Nissan's streamlined the way it equips the Xterra, as it approaches the end of its life cycle. That means a trio of well-outfitted SUVs that don't offer much in the way of optional equipment.

The lineup includes Xterra X, S, and PRO-4X models. The basic edition has power windows, locks, and mirrors; air conditioning; an AM/FM/CD player; and cruise control. The Xterra S gets crossbars for a roof rack; a gear basket; and fog lights. The PRO-4X, the off-road specialist-within-a-specialist, gets skid plates, a locking differential (on 4x4 versions), Bilstein shocks, and 16-inch off-road wheels and tires.

The Nissan Xterra's well-equipped for an off-roader, but navigation will come down to your smartphone or Rand McNally.
An in-dash navigation system remains unavailable in the Xterra, but a Bluetooth hands-free phone setup is standard, and PRO-4X models include a Rockford Fosgate premium audio system with auxiliary input, an in-dash 6-CD changer, 8 speakers, a subwoofer, steering wheel audio controls, and XM Satellite Radio.
