Nissan Xterra history and evolution
Sold from 2000 to 2015, the Nissan Xterra shares a chassis with the Nissan Frontierpickup truck. Over two generations, this small SUV maintained its adventurous spirit and boxy exterior. The first generation ran from 2000 to 2004 with a small update in 2002 that introduced a supercharged V6 engine and redesigned front end. The second generation launched in 2005, offering increased interior space and more engine power. An update in 2009 saw another front-end redesign, plus some interior refinements and new side curtain airbags. Later models offer the most up-to-date tech with Bluetooth connectivity, steering wheel mounted audio controls and hands-free text messaging
