The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
If you have a lot of gear to haul to tough-to-reach places, the 2010 Nissan Xterra is a good choice for weekend adventurers. The 2011 Jeep Wrangler isn’t at all suited to highway commutes, but the most adventurous weekend warriors will find its off-road prowess and iconic style hard to resist.
