I thought it would be alot closer than that. I thought the XTERRA was equipped with a supercharger even though they are in the 175-190hp range. It seems like it would be able to hang with the Buick at least I think.

If this helps, the SC p/u engine makes 210hp but can only muster a 0-60 time of 10secs; I'd imagine the SUV is even slower being heavier (by how much don't know). One thing I do know is....
Man...those are some UGLY machines-especially the ones that are the same color as the yellow road signs!!!:D

That's all the xterra makes in 4 cyl trim? Seriously? Why would they put an engine that makes even less than ours in a SUV that handles like the Titanic and weighs only half that?!?:)

The 5spd. SC's were detuned to 236 Lb ft ... And the auto.'s were sold 5-1 to the 5spd's...so they just droped all the trouble .. But I believe you can still get a 5spd. SC Xterra , my parents 02 Xterra SE SC is a 5spd. .... '01 was the only year you could get the Frontier in an SC 5spd. ...
