2015 Nissan Xterra Buyer's Guide

The Nissan Xterra is one of the last off-road ready SUVs you can buy right from the showroom floor. Despite its rugged, trail-ready design, the Nissan Xterra also happens to be reasonably comfortable to drive on a daily basis, making it a popular choice amongst weekend warriors who need a mid-size sport-utility vehicle that's as good at commuting to work as it is plowing through mud. Available in a two-wheel drive base model aimed at those seeking an affordable all-terrain look, as well as several low-range four-wheel drive editions (including the all-terrain PRO-4X trim), the Xterra stands tall alongside the Jeep Wrangler as one of the few body-on-frame SUVs still available outside of the full-size segment, albeit one that hasn't been redesigned since 2009.

Why buy the 2015 Nissan Xterra?

Beyond its reasonably spacious five-passenger cabin, the Nissan Xterra appeals to those who intend to take their SUV off of the beaten path and make full use of its off-road capabilities. It's also got enough polish to pull pavement duty without causing too many complaints about comfort or handling.

Day-to-day, the Xterra isn't going to fare as well as a similarly-sized crossover in terms of comfort or fuel efficiency, but it's one of the few truck-based sport-utility vehicles left in its class (the Xterra's main rivals are the Jeep Wrangler and the Toyota 4Runner).  Overall, as a compromise between a hard-to-kill rock crawler and a mid-size SUV that cleans up nicely for the corporate parking lot, the Nissan Xterra is a strong choice.
