The 2002 Xterra will get a fairly moderate facelift in an attempt to fend off new competitors from Ford, Mazda, Jeep, Land Rover and others. The headlights are rumored to be round and will blend into the hood like the new Jeep Liberty. The fog lights are also round like the ones seen on the Frontier, Maxima, and Sentra while the parking lights are reported to be like the fog lights on the Pathfinder/QX4. The current pull-style handbrake located under the right side of the steering wheel has been a target of criticism along with the simplicity of the interior. Nissan hopes to silence critics with a major makeover of the interior with rumors of a three-pod gauge being the most notable feature. Also, the handbrake will likely be axed in favor of a foot-operated parking brake. And to answer the most asked about question, the 2002 Xterra will feature the Eaton supercharger currently found on the Frontier SC models.
