The adventure-ready Nissan Xterra continues to combine power, utility, value and authenticity for the 2013 model year – inspiring and facilitating outdoor enthusiasts to "attack life" wherever they go. Xterra's distinct "multi-flex" interior provides an abundance of useable space, storage and convenience features – including an available Easy Clean cargo area, Utili-Track® cargo-carrying system, tie-down channel system, 10 cargo hooks and an available built-in first-aid kit.
For the 2013 model year, PRO-4X models add updated contrast stitching and seat embroidery, auto on/off headlights, outside temperature display, RearView Monitor and navigation system; S models add Display Audio with CD/AM/FM/Aux/USB, SiriusXM Satellite Radio (SiriusXM subscription required, sold separately); and all models receive slide-on-rod style sunvisors. Two new exterior colors are also available: Glacier White and Cayenne Red. Available in three well-equipped models – X, S and PRO-4X – all 2013 Xterras feature an advanced 4.0-liter DOHC V6 engine, rated at 261 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque, along with a rugged "F-Alpha" truck platform for adventure-ready performance. The "F-Alpha" platform is shared with the full-size Nissan Titan pickup and Armada SUV. Xterra is available with a choice of 6-speed manual (S 4x4 and PRO-4X 4x4 only) or 5-speed automatic transmissions and a choice of part-time 4-wheel drive or 2-wheel drive.
