Off-Road trim level comes with its share of specialized features

The 2010 Nissan Xterra rounds out its solid off-road ability with a reasonable level of interior features. A new development for 2010 is that Nissan is not offering any factory options for the Xterra, instead including all items as standard dependent on what trim level is chosen.

The 2010 Xterra is offered in four trim levels, allowing buyers to choose between the X, S, Off-Road, and SE models. 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 multi-adjustable 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."

The 2010 Xterra S and SE now include the previously optional X Gear Package content as standard, including fog lights, roof rack crossbars, gear basket, and for SE models only, a first aid kit and cargo net.

Both the SE and Off-Road models now include a standard Rockford Fosgate-powered audio system with an in-dash 6-CD changer, 8 speakers, a subwoofer, steering wheel audio controls, XM Satellite Radio, an auxiliary input, and Bluetooth.


With a generous and simplified feature list and no factory options, the 2010 Nissan Xterra looks like a stronger value than before, though you won't be able to mix and match.

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.
