2010 NISSAN X-TERRA OFF-ROAD
Consider the 2010 Nissan Xterra Off Road a classic recipe updated for the digital age. Behind the Xterra’s 4.0-liter V-6 is a standard six-speed manual transmission with an optional five-speed automatic. Behind that is a real two-speed transfer case, though it is operated by a simple electronic switch rather than a manual gear selector.
Nissan added knobby BF Goodrich Rugged Trail T/A tires size 265/75R16 riding on 16-inch wheels and good for 9.5 inches of ground clearance, Bilstein shocks, and the aforementioned electronically locking rear differential. In addition to the standard radiator skid plate, the Off Road is fitted with additional skid plates that protect the oil pan, transfer case, and fuel tank.
Select the optional automatic transmission, and Nissan will also set you up with Hill Descent Control and Hill Start Assist. All Off Road models ditch the side steps to increase ground clearance, and add off-road only lights mounted on the roof rack.
