TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Jeep Wrangler offers more options and features than ever in a supremely off-road-capable package that's comfortable enough to act as daily transportation too. The 2015 Nissan Xterra can go just about anywhere, and it won't clutter your decision with tons of options. The 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser pairs tough trail-ready hardware with modern features and fab styling--but it's not for families or commuters.
