2014 Nissan Xterra Fuel Economy

5.0
On Fuel Economy

Since the Xterra excels in off-road ability, it doesn't come as much of surprise that its fuel economy ratings aren't always the best in the business.

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.

Gas mileage is one of the big low points in the Xterra.

It's something to keep in mind if you're driving long distances; 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.
