The Car Connection's Take

7.4
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2011 Jeep Liberty is at home on the trail, but if you plan to do most of your driving on paved roads you can do a lot better. If you have a lot of gear to haul to tough-to-reach places, the 2010 Nissan Xterra is a good choice for weekend adventurers.
