Nashville, Tennessee – Nissan North America has revealed details of the 2009 Xterra sport utility vehicle and 2009 Frontier mid-size pickup, both of which receive numerous refinements for the new model year. Both vehicles are scheduled to arrive at Nissan dealerships in mid-July, 2008.
The 2009 Nissan Xterra features a new front end appearance, new wheel designs, new Roof-Mounted Off-Road Lights built into the roof rack air dam (Xterra Off- Road models only), new seat materials and colours and new standard roof-mounted curtain side-impact supplemental air bags with rollover sensor for front and rear-seat outboard occupant head protection.
The 2009 Nissan Frontier gets updated with a new front fascia, grille and headlight design and new 16-inch and 18-inch wheels. Additionally, a new PRO- 4X off-road model is added, along with new Frontier Crew Cab LE/PRO-4X Value Truck Packages (VTP) that offer an array of popular optional equipment at a greater value than if purchased separately. Other enhancements include a new centre radio and HVAC stack (V6 models), new seat cloth for LE models and two new exterior colors – Red Brick and Navy Blue.
The new Frontier PRO-4X features Bilstein off-road high-pressure shock absorbers, additional skid plates on the oil pan and transfer case, an electronic rear differential locker, two- or four-wheel limited-slip (ABLS) and unique machine-finished 16-inch aluminum-alloy off-road wheels with large BFGoodrich P265/75R16 Rugged Trail tires. Inside, the PRO-4X receives styling cues that differentiate it from the rest of the Frontier lineup including leather-appointed red-stitched shifter knob (M/T only) and steering wheel, chrome accent ring around the white-faced meter gauges and trip computer.
PRO-4X King Cab models receive a factory-applied spray-on bedliner, bed rail caps, Utili-track channel system and four adjustable tie-down cleats (standard on Crew Cab). All PRO-4Xs feature body-coloured grille and bumpers, outside mirrors and door handles and fog lamps. Added comfort and convenience features include cruise control, remote keyless entry power windows and door locks and dual power outside mirrors.
