The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.8
7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
For active people who need to tow or haul a lot of gear or go off-road, the 2008 Nissan Xterra is one of the best—and best-looking—choices. The 2008 Jeep Wrangler is a one-of-a-kind vehicle: an extreme off-road convertible with the on-road handling and ride of--well, a true off-roader.
