The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.0
TCC’s Bottom Line
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. The 2014 Jeep Wrangler can endure a daily commute, but it's truly happiest when it's off-road.
