The 2009 Nissan Xterra offers quite a bit of high-tech gadgetry to go with its off-road capabilities.

The second-generation Xterra boasts changes to its trim levels, so choosing between the X, S, Off-Road, and SE models should be easier for consumers who want to match the vehicle to their lifestyle. Edmunds reports that "the base X comes standard with 16-inch steel wheels, full power accessories, cruise control, remote keyless entry and a CD player," easily what you would expect, given the sticker price. They add that moving up the trims to the S brings "alloy wheels, step rails, a multiadjustable driver seat and an easy-to-clean cargo area," while the Nissan Xterra "Off-Road model includes high-performance gas shock absorbers, off-road tires on special wheels, skid plates," and "a fold-flat front passenger seat."

ConsumerGuide recommends the top-of-the-line SE trim for those who want a little luxury with their Nissan Xterra. The SE includes a "leather-wrapped steering wheel w/radio controls" and "Rockford Fosgate AM/FM radio w/in-dash 6-disc CD/MP3 changer," along with "digital-media player connection, satellite radio, wireless cell phone link, [and] trip computer."

Nissan simplifies the optional equipment packages for 2009 to include only two: the Technology Package and the X Gear Package. Mentioned most frequently in reviews read by TheCarConnection.com is the Technology Package, available on the Nissan Xterra Off-Road trims; Cars.com says it "includes a Rockford Fosgate audio system with a six-CD changer, an auxiliary input jack, steering-wheel stereo controls and a Bluetooth-based cell phone system," all of which are standard in the SE.

ConsumerGuide mentions that a "DVD entertainment system" can be added to all trims for $1,250, and Edmunds reports that the Nissan 2009 Xterra offers "an available built-in first aid kit" as stand-alone options.

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.
