The Car Connection's Take

TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2014 Jeep Wrangler can endure a daily commute, but it's truly happiest when it's off-road. The 2014 Nissan Xterra doesn't have many extras available, but it does accomplish exactly what a weekend warrior would want–plus it can go just about anywhere.
