The Nissan Xterra isn't all that impressive with respect to gas mileage, but in all fairness it might not be one of your top priorities in a rugged, off-road-capable SUV.
It's something to keep in mind if you're driving long distances, though; with EPA ratings of just 15 mpg city, 20 highway with the automatic transmission and four-wheel drive--and 16/22 mpg at best--there are some much larger SUVs and crossovers that are considerably more frugal on gas.
If you tend to have passengers more than cargo or gear, or if you do most of your driving on the road, rather than off-road, it may be worth considering a somewhat greener pick, in a more carlike crossover.
The You want a fuel-efficient vehicle? Then you may have a tough time stomaching the Xterra's thirst compared to modern crossovers.
