2011 Nissan Xterra news, pictures, and information
2011 Nissan Xterra Once Again Offers Authentic Off-Road Capability For Serious Adventure EnthusiastsOften copied, never equaled, Xterra remains a 'class of one,' combining power, utility, value and authenticity. The tough, essential Nissan Xterra continues in 2011 as a vehicle designed to inspire and facilitate outdoor enthusiasts' activities wherever they go. For the 2011 model year, the adventure-ready Nissan Xterra offers a simplified model lineup. The previous Off-Road model has been renamed Xterra PRO-4X and the Xterra SE model is no longer available – leaving three 2011 Xterra models: Xterra X, Xterra S and Xterra PRO-4X. The X and S models are available in 4x2 or part-time 4-wheel drive. PRO-4X has standard part-time 4-wheel drive.
All 2011 Xterras feature Nissan's advanced 4.0-liter DOHC V6 engine, rated at 261 horsepower and 281 lb-ft of torque, along wîth a rugged 'F-Alpha' truck platform for adventure-ready performance. All models are offered wîth a refined 5-speed automatic transmission, while S and PRO-4X models have a choice of the automatic or a 6-speed manual transmission. (posted on conceptcarz.com)
Xterra again features a distinct 'multi-flex' interior wîth an abundance of useable space, storage and convenience features – including an available Easy Clean cargo area, a tie-down channel system, 10 cargo hooks and an available built-in first-aid kit. While maintaining its 'authentic' tough gear positioning, the 2011 Xterra also offers a range of advanced technologies, including Bluetooth® Hands-free Phone System, XM® Satellite Radio (XM® subscription required, sold separately) and an 8-speaker Rockford Fosgate audio system wîth subwoofer.
Enhancements for the 2011 model year include the addition of body side moldings to Xterra S, the addition of a standard first aid kit and rear tire deflector on Xterra S 4x2, the addition of a white-faced meter cluster on Xterra PRO-4X, and two new exterior colors: Lava Red and Metallic Green. One option package is available for 2011, the PRO-4X Leather Package.
Rugged Exterior, Comfortable Interior
Staying true to the original Xterra design concept of offering drivers 'everything you need and nothing you don't,' the 2011 Xterra combines its signature bold exterior styling wîth a spacious, flexible, adventure-ready interior.

Power: 261 hp
Torque: 281 ft-lbs
5-speed Automatic, 6-speed Manual
As in previous years, Xterra features a long wheelbase for a smooth ride and ample interior room, yet overall length is highly manageable due to the short front overhang – helping to enhance maneuverability in off-road hill climbing and trail situations.
Xterra's flexible interior is spacious enough for up to five adults and their gear, wîth ample leg room, headroom and cargo room. A standard 60/40-split folding stadium-style rear seat wîth removable seat bottom cushions and an available fold-down front passenger seat (PRO-4X model) create added utility for hauling long recreational gear.

There's also an available built-in first-aid kit and space to securely carry jugs up to a one-gallon size.
Securing bike racks and other accessories or gear is made easier wîth an available adjustable channel system in the cargo floor, similar in design to the Útili-track™ system offered on the Nissan Titan and Frontier pickups (standard on S and PRO-4X models).
