As they say, a dog is man’s best friend, yet there are entirely too many drivers out there these days that won’t let these lovable little pups into their vehicles unless they’re completely kenneled up and posing zero threat to causing damage to the vehicle itself. As purveyors fine Nissan automobiles, we can understand that sentiment here at Okotoks Nissan, but the truth is that there are some vehicles that do quite well with pets outside of their crates. The 2016 Nissan Xterra is one such automobile.
Known primarily for its off-road abilities, the Nissan Xterra absolutely is the automaker’s most rugged SUV offering, and that durability extends to the inside of the automobile, as well, particularly when some pet-friendly aftermarket products are tossed in for further protection.
Even without the aftermarket add-ons, though, this is a vehicle primed for furry little friends. The S and Pro-4X trims within the Nissan Xterra range come with an Easy Clean cargo area with tie-down cleats and ceiling hooks, while there also are optional sliding cargo-net dividers available to help keep your pup confined to the easy-clean cargo area.
That cargo area, by the way, offers 36.3 cubic feet of space, which means there’s plenty of room back there for several dogs of all shapes and sizes. Folding down the seats bumps that space up to 65.7 cubic feet, which is more than enough room for a handful of even the largest dogs.
If any of our High River, AB customers would like to come see for themselves just how great this new Nissan SUV would be for their own animals, come pay us a visit anytime and we’ll be happy to show you just how pet-friendly our automobiles can be!
