Expert Quotes:

Nissan Xterra: 16/22 mpg (2WD); 16/20 mpg (4WD manual); 15/20 mpg (4WD automatic)

we managed to extract an average fuel consumption of 15.2 mpg

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.

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.


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

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
