The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.4
6.8
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2013 Nissan Xterra has exactly what the most dedicated weekend warriors want--including the goods to get active gear out to hard-to-reach places--but without a lot of frills. The 2013 Jeep Wrangler is just as ready for adventuring as it looks--and surprisingly tolerable for the commute.
