Winds of performance change are used to highlight the 2005 Nissan product range. Following the trend set by the Sentra SE-R, the Nissan Altima gains a sport-themed model under the SE-R branding. Powered by a 260-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 engine with a performance exhaust system, the 2005 Altima SE-R includes a unique front appearance, rear spoiler as well as a standard eight-speaker stereo system. The SE-R is the sixth model in total part of the 2005 Altima line. Commemorating the spirit of Nissan's original Z-car, the 2005 350Z is available in a 35th Anniversary Edition trim with special badging and equipment. Performance arrives in another manner from Nissan in 2005 with the debut of the NISMO Frontier with BFGoodrich Rugged Trail T/A tires mounted to 16-inch aluminum wheels and an electronic locking rear differential. The NISMO model is part of the newly redesigned truck featuring larger, mid-sized proportions and power from a new 4.0-liter V-6 engine. An all-new Nissan Pathfinder adopts a body on frame construction similar to the Frontier. The bigger, better trend for the 2005 Nissan sport utility line-up continues to an all-new Xterra. The full-sized Armada sport utility vehicle drops the Pathfinder moniker in 2005.
