The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating

7.8
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 Toyota 4Runner's brawny looks don't fit the crossover mold, but neither do its off-road talents, either.
