So if you worked at Nissan, and could make only two changes to the X.. what would they be?

Me.. I would offer a fold back canvas roof like the new Jeep, and I would most definately have a solid front axle option...

I would want the solid axle but that would never happen so just a stronger front diff...

front diff or new axle design

and either...

manual hubs
manual shift x-fer case

lets make that 3 things (the manual select goodies are small potatoes, although are more expensive).

1.Nismo version (complete with better front diff, nismo headers, and nismo intake)
2. Better quality, non scratch interior (also invent some non-fading plastic for outside)

a) Optional V8 and with it comes the upgraded front diff + real off-road gear ratios (4.10)
b) Proper leather interior, with more conforming seats (would almost be worth the trade off for the fold-down pass. side)...maybe like the Nismo Juke had and an optional Recaro set, same as.

Replace all paper gaskets with proper rubber last forever gaskets and orings.
Remove all the nanny power reduction in the ecu, so proper power can be made.


I could change the gasket swap for stronger rotating assembly so a blower can be used with out blowing the engine up.

1. I would have never killed the Xterra Production.
2. Upon Pathfinders redesign, I would named it something else.

I went from a 2005 Frontier Nismo Off Road to an X. Id buy the Nismo all day in an X.
