The Car Connection's Take
TCC Rating
7.2
7.6
TCC’s Bottom Line
The 2015 Nissan Xterra can go just about anywhere, and it won't clutter your decision with tons of options. With the 2016 Toyota 4Runner, you'll trade off a little refinement and on the road finesse for true SUV capability, off-road prowess, and unparalleled style.
