The return of the Xterra SUV in the United States could happen after all. The 2023 Nissan Xterra is now more probable than ever before. The manufacturers are introducing more capability to their SUV lineup and Nissan will be no different. Jeep offers a popular off-road Wrangler SUV, while Ford is about to drop the new Bronco. On top of that, Land Rover once again offers Defender SUV and even Toyota RAV4 gained the famous TRD Off-Road treatment.
As for the 2023 Xterra, this model is not official yet. Interestingly, Nissan will introduce a redesigned Frontier pickup truck. The old Xterra shared a lot of components with this model. We are thinking of a small body-on-frame SUV with great capabilities. Some renderings are giving us an idea of how this model could look like. Without further ado, here’s everything we know at this moment.
2023 Xterra Exterior Design
For a start, we should mention the X-Terra model is available in the Middle East. It is a three-row SUV that sits on the same platform as the Nissan Navara pickup truck. As for the 2023 Nissan Xterra in the United States, things will be different. For a start, it will be a two-row SUV. To maintain the original Xterra’s off-road capability and credibility, we believe a new Xterra would use a shortened version of the Frontier midsize pickup’s frame.
Nonetheless, the majority of the exterior cues are shared with Tera’s larger sibling. According to reports, the new Nissan Rogue will have a significant influence on the design of the all-new Xterra. For a variety of reasons, it will be fascinating to see the production model.
The arriving SUV’s interior will be very similar to that of the Terra model. On the other hand, the new 2023 Nissan Xterra will have less interior space. The cabin will be modern and upscale. The improvement is attributed to the use of a variety of high-quality materials, new upholstery, and additional chrome accents. Even the entry-level model will appear pleasing and pleasant. Nissan will arrange the buttons logically in order to create a functional cabin layout. Many reports are suggesting a two-row five-seat layout. Still, we are waiting for Nissan to reveal more details.
Xterra SUV Specs
When the previous generation Xterra was phased out, it was only available with a 4.0-liter V-6 engine. It is an ancient lump of a powertrain that survived in the Frontier for years. If the 2023 Nissan Xterra were to return today, it would inherit the 2022 Frontier’s new 310-horsepower 3.8-liter V6 gasoline engine. Moreover, a nine-speed automatic transmission would be in use.
The Pro-4X trim level with ultimate off-road capability is a must, and we hope Nissan won’t let us down. In China, this model is using a 2.5-liter gasoline unit that comes with a six-speed manual and seven-speed automatic transmission.
2023 Nissan Xterra Price, Release Date
The 2023 Nissan Xterra SUV will reportedly cost around $30,000. This model will rival Jeep Wrangler and Ford Bronco, along with the Land Rover Defender. The sales will begin later next year. Still, we are waiting for Nissan to say more about this SUV and its possible arrival in the United States.
