For the Xterra receives a totally new end, interior and power on the hood to accommodate a supercharger. to the 2002 model, the Xterra was in a 2.4 liter 4-cylinder or a 3.3 liter From its introduction, even the was considered by many anemic and New for this year, Nissan the supercharged 3.3 liter SOHC V6.

We were very eager to get our on one of these models and early year, Nissan got us one for review.

Our Blue Xterra was the SE-SC model with a sticker of $28,467.00. For those not familiar Nissans, the base trim is the XE, whereas the SE is the higher level. In our the SE added such things as alloy wheels with tires, body-side molding, fog a front tow hook, tubular rails, unique cloth fabric with door inserts, and leather-wrapped steering

The supercharger adds a whopping 40 over the normally-aspirated V6 at 4,800 RPM and 46 of torque at 2,800 RPM. receiving the keys, the first we did, of course, was hit the road our foot to the floor.

Hearing the of the Eaton supercharger was exciting, and more exciting than the performance itself. The power is available, unlike a turbo-charged but in all honesty, after driving the for a week, we felt the supercharger brought the power to weight right around where it be in the first place. The Xterra was no demon by any shot, nor was it underpowered.

It seemed just about Having not driven the regular V6 or the we wondered how they would do in the – especially with the air on full and 4 people on-board.

One of the most obvious comparisons to the is the Jeep Liberty, both in and market. The Liberty’s V6 puts out at 5,200 RPM and 235 lb-ft of torque at RPM. The power of the Xterra had a similar feel to the Liberty, though the Jeep has a lower and no supercharger. It makes us wonder why doesn’t use the 240hp 3.5-liter V6 found in the Pathfinder or the new Altima.

If we to buy an Xterra, we would certainly the supercharged model, despite the that it requires premium and has the potential for more maintenance the road.

But one very important thing to about the Xterra, is that isn’t looking to sell it as a SUV. The Pathfinder and its Infiniti QX4 address that market.

we tested Xterra in focus we were told that it was not a ‘grocery getter,’ like of the smaller SUVs currently on the said Bill Kirrane, president and general manager, Division, Nissan North Inc. In fact, it’s got a off-road following that was only seen among owners. We’re feeding cult with a new Enthusiast – a 2002 Xterra provides the perfect foundation for a core off-road enthusiast to the vehicle of their dreams.

Our Xterra did not come with the Package, which includes locking hubs and a limited rear end. However, was still a 4×4 model, and as we intended to go flog it and see if it really was of the hard core off-road as Kirrane put it.
