First of all, the available rebate on the 2004 Xterra is $2400 (not $2500) with an incentive option of 1% financing (W.A.C) AND $1000 rebate.
Expecting a 20% discount on the 04s at this time is unrealistic. A typically equipped 04 XE-V6 (A/T) lists for ~ 23K, with an invoice of ~ 21.7K. MOST Nissan dealerships will not normally discount below invoice, so expect a maximum discount of ~ $1300 or 6%. 20% would equal $4600 or $3300 below invoice (this isn't a Ford or Chevy!!!). Don't expect sale prices on 04s to drop much further until Nissan increases the rebate.
As for quantities of 04 Xterras still on dealer lots, Nissan is sending ALL remaining unshipped 04s to the dealers at this time. For most dealers, this will likely result in an increase in units before the 05s begin to show up.
05 pricing is expected to be very comparable to 04. A typical equipped 05 S (A/T) is expected to list for ~ 22.9K. However, without rebates or other incentives, don't expect too much discounting until the 04s are nearly gone.

Your are accurate that a 05 Xterra equipped with power will list for ~23K. However, a Pathfinder XE (base model) will typically list for ~25.7K, a $2700 difference. Now that doesn't sound like a lot, but ask yourself: "What type of an SUV am I looking for?" Their capabilities are vastly different.

Print ads I have seen are claiming February.

In Colorado the dealerships are saying the earliest we should see the 05 is the third week of Feb.

You can't buy a well-equipped SUV in the United States for less than $20k, so I have no idea what 'coupedincal' is talking about. You can't even buy a 2004 Xterra well-equipped for less than $20k. Nor can you buy a well-equipped Pathfinder now for less than $30k. Nissan is not risking anything by pricing the Xterra more than $20k. That's the price range of cheap SUVs. A loaded X will even break $30k, and that seems reasonable to me. A loaded 4Runner will break $40k. That's the market.

Dealers here in Denver say that if the pricing stays consistent with the 05 Pathfinder and Frontier the 05 Xterra should be $400 less than the 04.

I picked up a 2004 XE V6 on 2-5-05...we got it for$250 over invoice plus rebates. Getting hard to find ones with side air bags. The rebates offer two options 1)$1000 and 1% Nissan financing (if you qualify) 2) or $2400 and shop for your own financing**the other caveat is a $500 new college grad rebate added to either of the above options if you are a new/soon-to-be-new college grad** We negotiated for $250 over invoice BEFORE the $1500 in rebates($1000+$500=$1500)(wife is new grad) AND 1% for 60 months--. That is about what the TMV price was here at Edmunds (go armed with that info). We only got 14.3 MPG on our all-highway first tank of gas (even with a bit of a tail wind-ouch). I will follow up on the fuel economy after I experiment.

Just bought my second Xterra. First was a early 2000 Red SE 4x2 in Tampa,Florida Had 2 years ad traded off. Now I traded a 03 Jeep Liberty Sport for a New 04 Xterra XE with a lot of options; Got $5500. off the MSRP before trade in. Love my Xterra. Ride is lot better than Liberty and more room all around also. After the engine breaks in and a treatment of Slick fifty I expect to get around 21-22 MPG as I did with the 2000 model. It just takes about 8-1000 miles to break in first, (Nissan Engine Quality).

Specs and pricing for the 2005 Xterra are now on the Nissan website (www.nissanusa.com).
A loaded Off-Road edition goes for $28,930. There are only three factory options available on an Off-Road (once you've selected the drivetrain): Rockford Fosgate Audio, Side and Curtain Airbags, and an In-Cabin Microfilter. I think the price is pretty good.
#2444 of 2816 2005's out today?
Feb 11, 2005 (9:32 am)
Well, per nissan, the 2005's are scheduled to go on sale today. Anybody ventured to the dealerships yet? I imagine there will be slim pickings for a few weeks or so as inventory is built up. I'd be interested to hear how willing the dealers are to negotiate. I'll be looking at one, but will gladly wait until there's a deal to be had.
