The Xterra SUV is coming back after discontinuation in 2015. Although it was very powerful, crossover’s poor fuel economy and safety were reasons for pause. Now, after few years, we will see it as 2019 Nissan Xterra. Declining sale numbers were an alarm for bosses, and now we will get the third generation of SUV. Big changes will happen outside and inside, while main lacks will get significant improvements. There is still enough time for development but expect lighter vehicle, with latest infotainment and safety features. Also, performance will be again at the top level, and mpg rate boost will definitely lure more buyers.
2019 Nissan Xterra redesign
The 2019 Nissan Xterra will come once again on F-Alpha platform. Some other crossovers from the same family are using it. So, similarities with Nissan X-trail are not going to happen by accident. Nevertheless, Xterra will get unique parts and equipment. Safety features are now much better than before. Lane departure warning, rearview camera, parking sensors, airbags… are just some of them. Now we can call this SUV a real family vehicle. Exterior shape and dimensions are nearly the same as for the last model. However, everything else is changed. We will see new bumpers, grille, lights, and wheels.
2019 Nissan Xterra engine
A new generation of the popular crossover will bring many changes in the engine room. Testing is on the way, and engineers are not sure yet what to install in 2019 Nissan Xterra. They will aim for 280 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. That would make SUV perform excellently on and off the road. On the other hand, improvements in fuel economy will make crossover go further. Mileage will be over 20 mpg, probably 19/24 for city and highway separately. The last model used 5-speed manual and 6-speed automatic gearboxes. New Xterra will bring them back in 2019 season.
2019 Nissan Xterra price
Pricing of the 2019 Nissan Xterra is still unknown. Bosses are waiting to see the cost of development and production of a new generation. However, we believe new crossover will be available from not less than $30,000. Upper trims will go over $40,000, but these are premium models with more equipment and safety features.
