Nissan is making strong efforts to keep up with growing competition in the crossover class. Besides Japanese and US models, there is also a threat from Hyundai Santa Fe. Nevertheless, this manufacturer has always been innovative, and they are ready to show it with 2019 Nissan Xterra.
This SUV is one of the best-selling models in the segment. For the 2019 year edition changes are not so significant, but still big enough. So, we can rather speak about revisit and refresh, rather than redesign. Huge changes could happen after 2020 when new generations of crossovers from Nissan are waiting for a debut.
2019 Nissan Xterra Engine and Specs
The mid-size crossover is going to generate a nice amount of power. According to rumors, its 4.0-l V-6 can produce around 280 hp and almost 300 lb-ft of torque. Its petrol drivetrain is not getting an alternative in diesel or hybrid. Nevertheless, the plug-in is in the plan for future. When it will happen, we still don’t know, but the company is offering some other cars as hybrids.
Nissan Xterra mileage and mpg
For Xterra, there is new CVVT system for better efficiency and power. Similar drivetrain technology is used by Frontier truck. With modifications of transmission, smoother and more efficient ride can make 22 mpg combined. On the highway, this SUV can go even 25 mpg. The vehicle is not losing on towing capacity, or off-road performance, which is on a higher level than before.
2019 Nissan Xterra Styling and Features
The last major redesign we saw in 2014 with a model for 2015. Now, we will see more changes. We don’t have to mention that both interior and exterior are getting updates. Outside, we will see minor changes on the front fascia. Grille, bumper, and headlights will suffer some modifications, but nothing significant. Also, overall dimension remains the same.
Interior and Infotainment System
We are already used to see the latest NissanConnect infotainment system for every new crossover from Japanese carmaker. That is the case with Xterra. In next year or too many changes are going to change. Since technology everyday evolution, it is impossible to predict exactly what to expect from new vehicles.
2019 Nissan Xterra Price and Safety
Base models of the 2019 Nissan Xterra are going to cost just under $30,000. However, as all other vehicles of the same company, additional equipment costs extra. So, you can tune your crossover as you wish. Nevertheless, there will be only one drivetrain option, so big gaps in prices are not expected for the standard offer. It all depends on drive modes and features buyers choose for its vehicle
Xterra as a family car
The latest model of the SUV from 2015 received high marks for safety. This recommends it as a great family car. Now, when drivers know that, they expect the same from the successor. But, 2019 Nissan Xterra is going to surprise all with features and systems that improve safety. The driver is getting a lot of help from a lane departure, parking assist, and rearview camera. There are also seat belts and airbags as the first protectors in crashes. Nevertheless, Nissan will bring much more other features.
