The Nissan Xterra enjoyed a fairly long production run from 1999 to 2015, during which time it gave SUV fans an option that was more focused on rugged action than it was on luxury or comfort. While many SUV offerings seemed to be increasingly focused entirely on increasing the luxury offering, prices were going up and choices in a genuinely rough-and-ready SUV were dwindling. That’s the gap that the Xterra was meant to fill.
Despite its fairly long production history, there have only been 2 generations of Nissan Xterra, the first running from 1999 to 2004, and the second from 2005 to the model’s final discontinuation in 2015. During that time, there were 3 main facelifts, namely in 2002, 2009, and 2011. Both generations of this Xterra shared their main platform with the Nissan Frontier.
Nissan emphasized the utility and rugged features of the Xterra with their initial advertising campaign that was capped off with the slogan “Everything you need, nothing you don’t.” The first-generation models were powered by a 170-hp V6 3.3L engine, roof rack, side step rails, sunroof, floor mats, and more.
By late in the second generation, Nissan had taken a few steps to improve comfort levels, but the Xterra mostly stayed true to its roots. Features like a standard Bluetooth hands-free phone system, sunglasses holder, NissanConnect infotainment updates, new alloy wheels, an upgraded audio system, and heated front seats --- among others --- made the Xterra more palatable as a more general family vehicle, but the vehicle remained more popular for genuine off-road enthusiasts.
In the end, what killed the Xterra was mandated upgrades to make it compliant with various new safety and emissions standards, none of which made the Xterra an economical model for Nissan to build and promote any longer. Therefore, the 2015 model year marked the end of this unique Nissan model’s life. Fans of the Xterra can still get much of what they miss from the Nissan Frontier pickup truck.
