2012 Nissan Xterra
A fully boxed ladder frame featuring high-tensile-strength steel creates a solid platform.
Get moving on the uphill swing
Stopped on an incline, Hill start assist helps prevent rolling backward. Clutch Start/Cancel allows PRO-4X models with manual transmission to start the vehicle from a stop without using the clutch.
What goes up must come down
Hill descent control helps control your speed and brake pressure, freeing you up to concentrate on navigating difficult off road situations.
When 4-wheel drive just isn’t enough
The available electronic locking rear differential delivers equal power to both rear wheels, boosting traction and moving your Xterra forward.
Go wherever the wind – or whim – takes you
Shift-on-the-fly 4-wheel drive activates with a twist of a dial. Highly capable 4WD system features a 2-speed transfer case, so you can go from 2WD to 4H at speeds up to 62 mph.
Machine over matter
Whatever the obstacle, the PRO-4X Xterra is up for the challenge. Packed with innovative technology and built to conquer the trail, it features extreme 4X4 components, oversize rugged trail tires and off-road performance shocks.
ICONIC ROOF RACK
Uses + Ability
Xterra’s roof rack is the one that redefines the species. And gives you a whole new way to load up and head out.
Shine it up ahead
Roof-rack-mounted-off-road lights are built right into the roof rack and help guide the way on even the darkest trails.
A home for all that’s wet and dirty
The available gear box – featuring a latched lid that stays open in a stiff wind – is easily removed to store large items on the rack.
The built-in rear bumper steps on each side make getting up to the roof rack a breeze.
Stretch out in style
With all the seats up, there’s space for 5 and still plenty of room to bring along all of your gear.
Pack it in
Fold the rear seats down for massive amounts of usable space.
Fold-flat front seat means you’ll never have to ditch a friend for a longboard again.
Lock it down. Clean it up
The available Utili-track® channel system takes an innovative yes simple approach to stowing you gear. Two channels built into the floor house four adjustable cleats to keep your gear organized in place, while the Easy Clean® cargo area can be quickly wiped down after a hard day of extreme play.
The under-floor storage provides a sweet spot to store extra gear, and with its removable lid, access it a piece of cake.
Solid cleats give you almost limitless tie-down possibilities and are fully adjustable
10 clips and hooks – that’s four in the floor, four in the ceiling, and one on each of the walls – make it easy to configure Xterra’s cargo area to snugly fit your needs.
Pump up your experience and keep up connects. With available features like a booming sound system and Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, Xterra has the technology to keep you rocking and talking.
Feel the music
The hard-pumping sound of the available Rockford Fosgate audio system – featuring an in-dash 6-CD changer (MP3/WMA CD capable) with nine speakers, including an enclosed subwoofer- keeps you moving.
MP3 Auxiliary Inputs
Plug in your iPod® for hours of on-road entertainment
Go far off the beaten path, but stay in touch with the push of a button. Hands on the wheels, eyes on the next signpost.
Reduce your risk
Every Xterra now comes with six standard air bags, including side-impact and roof-mounted curtain air bags. It’s all part of the Nissan Safety Shield, our comprehensive approach to help inspire confidence every time you get behind the wheel.
Xterra’s standard Vehicle Dynamic Control can help you stay on your steered path.
Standard Anti-locking Braking System helps you maintain control during emergency braking.
Brake Override Technology
