we'll keep the leather package in our Pathfinder LE while we hose out the Xterra's rubber-matted rear cargo hold, guilt-free
modern frivolities like Bluetooth and satellite radio
There are all sorts of tie-down rubber materials that seem appropriate to a vehicle you use for hauling.
The Nissan Xterra hasn't changed much since its last major revision way back in 2005, but the cabin tech in our S trim model hasn't been upgraded since this active lifestyle SUV debuted way back in 2000.
There are currently three trims available on the 2014 Xterra–X, S and the rugged PRO-4X–and each of those trims offers a solid set of features for the money.
The PRO-4X, the off-road specialist-within-a-specialist, gets additional skid plates, a locking differential (on 4x4 versions), Bilstein shocks, and 16-inch off-road wheels and BFGoodrich Rugged Trail tires. This year, PRO-4X models get contrast stitching and seat embroidery, plus auto headlamps, an outside temperature display, a navigation system with rearview monitor, and a new DIsplay Audio system with auxiliary input, USB port, and Sirius satellite radio compatibility. A Bluetooth hands-free interface is standard, only on the PRO-4X.
Even at the base level, the Xterra X includes power windows, locks, and mirrors; air conditioning; an AM/FM/CD player; keyless entry; and cruise control. The Xterra S gets crossbars for a roof rack; step rails; an Easy Clean Cargo Surface; a C-Channel cargo floor with moveable tie-downs; a gear basket; and fog lights--plus a tow hook in 4x4 versions.
The Xterra doesn't offer much in the way of luxury, but off-road options? It has 'em.
