There’s no mistaking this as anything other than the Xterra, even if the front bumper has ballooned way out of proportion with the rest of the vehicle in this second-generation design. It will be built on a modified version of the Titan‘s platform, with an independent control-arm front suspension, a live rear axle, and a standard 4.0-liter V-6 engine that will produce 250-plus horsepower and 270-plus pound-feet of torque through either a five-speed automatic or six-speed manual transmission. To be built in Tennessee, the new Xterra will go on sale in early 2005.
