Nissan Hints a Revival of Xterra May Be in the Works

Could it be based off the same platform as next-gen Frontier pickup?

The Nissan Xterra drove off into the sunset in 2015.

All things go in cycles, even when it comes to booming demand for utility vehicles. Make that CUVs, or crossover-utility vehicle, which have all but bumped traditional sport-utes off the market.

But there are signs a revival of classic, body-on-frame SUVs just might be a-coming, with Ford readying a reborn Bronco, Toyota promising to follow the FT-AC Concept with a production model, and Jeep betting big on the all-new remake of the classic Wrangler – currently one of the few true SUVs left on the market.

Market Trends!

Could Nissan be ready to toss its own hat back in the ring, however, with an all-new version of the Xterra, which it pulled from the U.S. market in 2015? Apparently yes, according to a senior Nissan executive.


Nissan Reveals TeRRA Concept

Hint of next xTerra styling?

Nissan envisions a zero-emissions off-roader in the form of the TeRRA Concept.

Nissan is giving a sneak peek at the new TeRRA Concept it will formally unveil at the Paris Motor Show later this month.

Don’t expect to see the all-wheel-drive crossover, or more precisely, its hydrogen fuel-cell powertrain, in production anytime soon, the TeRRA may just give some insight into some of the things Nissan is working up for the near future.

While some elements of the styling are clearly over the top, notably the prismatic LED headlamps, the broader design cues just might have an influence on the next-generation xTerra sport-utility vehicle or the eventual update of the smaller Juke CUV.
