The Car Connection's Take

7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The Toyota FJ Cruiser is the real deal, pairing authentic trail toughness with modern conveniences; but families and commuters attracted mainly to its brawny, very stylish look should think twice. 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.
