It’s been a while since we saw the last edition of the Nissan Xterra compact crossover. However, it seems like that the company is planning a comeback. True fans are sure that this is going to come true. Another reason to believe so is hints from the company. After discontinuation in 2015, the enthusiasm didn’t fall. Now, after 4 years, the 2019 Nissan Xterra could bring new accessories, better towing capacity and ground clearance, and even a Nismo version.
Stories about the return are more often in the last couple of months. Although we hear something similar about models for 2017 and 2018, these are different. First of all, company bosses are saying something that we connect with the revival of the crossover. Some while ago, we could hear that the plan is to pay more attention to off-road compact SUV segment. That is exactly where 2019 Nissan Xterra would fit. Also, the model shared the same platform as the Nissan Frontier truck. With a new pickup coming next year, we can already see the debut of Xterra as well.
Why Nissan Xterra Discontinued?
The Japanese carmaker shut down the Xterra in 2015. Back then, the vehicle had a lot of problems with emissions. Also, it wasn’t the best option for buyers looking for economical crossovers. Finally, all these factors lead to poor sales, and Nissan decided to discontinue Xterra for a while. Now, redesigned, the SUV is ready to make an impact on the US market again.
2019 Nissan Xterra Supercharged Engine
Sharing the same concept with Nissan Frontier could mean these two vehicles will get the same engine. After the redesign, the truck will get a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder mill. The turbocharged version could make 2019 Nissan Xterra very capable in off-road situations. With 260 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque, this crossover will get better towing capacity than before.
2019 Nissan Xterra Pro-4X Accessories and Package
Besides the engine revisit, designers will add modern features and equipment for 2019 Nissan Xterra. More accessories are going to make the SUV more appealing. Whatsoever, we believe that one of the upper trims will come with the special package. The 2019 Nissan Xterra Pro-4X is what the buyers are expecting. But, we shouldn’t be surprised if the company decides to launch the crossover with PRO-4X package.
Nismo Version of the 2019 Nissan Xterra
The new design of the 2019 Nissan Xterra will bring a lot of changes. Nismo vehicles are special versions for many classes and segment. Not only that performance is tuned, but also the appearance. With Nismo package, we will see totally different 2019 Nissan Xterra inside and outside. Unique grille and bumpers are just the part of the overall update. Inside the cabin, Nismo models are getting special equipment and the latest features and services.
2019 Nissan Xterra Debut
The release date of the 2019 Nissan Xterra is the biggest mystery at the moment. We can again find a connection with the Frontier pickup. When this truck arrives, the SUV could be its partner. In the worst case, Xterra will come with a delay of a couple of months.
