2021 Nissan Xterra Redesign, Price, Review, and Specs. Based on the latest news, the 2021 Nissan Xterra has been announced to hit the world’s market next year or maybe in early 2021. This time Xterra will bring various upgrades starting from the exterior look which will keep its well-known shape but it will be more modern and more attractive. The cabin will be refreshed with the latest technology and more quality materials. As for the engine, the new Xterra should offer several units this time.
Engines and performances of the 2021 Nissan Xterra
Under the hood of the new 2021 Nissan Xterra should be placed several types of engines. For now there is no any precise information or any specific details, and all is based on the latest rumors. The carmaker has stopped the production of this model, years ago, but it is very likely to get the same engine before, but naturally, we assume that the engine will be upgraded for better performance and improved fuel consumption. It should also get some new engines beneath its hood, and there should be several units in the offer.
To start with the already familiar 4.0-liter V-6 engine which in the previous versions is able to make 261 horses and the torque of 281 pound-feet. This engine has been coupled to a 6-speed manual transmission and it has been offered with both front-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations. This time, we can expect improvements in the performance and it is very likely to get a new transmission.
On the other hand, one of the new options might be a 2.3-liter turbo and twin-turbo engine which are found in the new Navara model. This engine is capable of producing 190 hp and the torque of 322 lb-ft. The new 2021 Nissan Xterra might also get a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder naturally aspirated engine. This powertrain will use a 7-speed automatic transmission. A 6-speed manual transmission should also be one of the options. The Ameican market should only be available with the automatic transmission. It should offer two drivetrain configurations and those will include rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive layouts.
For the Chinese market, we can expect either a 2.5-liter 4-cylinder diesel or gasoline unit, and the 6-speed manual gearbox should be standard.
The exterior design of the all-new 2021 Nissan Xterra
Of all, the all-new 2021 Nissan Xterra will most likely be based on the revised architecture and it is the same platform which is found in the outgoing Frontier model. As for the external appearance, this time we are expecting a new look meaning that it will get a more modern and more handsome design. And according to the latest news, the Xterra should borrow some similar design cues from the Navara model. On the other hand, the Xterra will retain its familiar rugged appearance but the design of the hood and the mirror caps will be very close to the ones found in the Navara SUV.
The front end should receive the brand’s well-known V-motion grille design, square headlamps, and a new design of the bumper. The whole front fascia will feature a more aggressive design. Around back, the new 2021 Nissan Xterra should be refreshed with new taillights, a sportier bumper, and we might see some new designs of the wheels and perhaps a few more exterior colors.
The interior design of the 2021 Nissan Xterra
At first, we have heard the news about two versions of the seating configurations of the 2021 Nissan Xterra. And it is said that it should be offered with two-row and three row seating configurations meaning that it will be able to place up to five or seven passengers. On the other hand, the least news indicates, that the 2021 Nissan Xterra will only be available with two rows and the maximum seating capacity will be up to five. Naturally, nothing is yet officially confirmed and we will have to wait for the manufacturer’s official announcement.
2021 Nissan Xterra cabin
What we can say for sure, is that the new Xterra will get a more comfortable and more quality cabin which will be made of premium materials. We can expect more modern technology and more safety features too. The dashboard will also be modernized and will get a larger touchscreen with the latest infotainment system. Some sources have revealed that the manufacturer won’t offer the Nissan’ ProPILOT Assist semi-autonomous system, but this is also not official.
Release date and price of the 2021 Nissan Xterra
The all-new 2021 Nissan Xterra should be presented to the world in late 2023 or most likely at the beginning of 2021. The price is not yet available, however, according to our predictions, it should start at around $40,000 for the base model while the higher trim levels will cost roughly $55,000.
