2015 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2015 Nissan Xterra

Few vehicles could hope to match the 2015 Jeep Wrangler for Regina and Moose Jaw drivers, and certainly not the 2015 Nissan Xterra. In every way which counts, the Xterra trails far behind the iconic and uncompromising Wrangler.

Starting Price

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler is one of the most capable vehicles on the road, and yours starts at just $21,495 with the Sport model. In contrast, the 2015 Nissan Xterra S model starts at an almost unbelievable $34,013 – that means that you’re expected to pay over $12,000 more than you would for the Wrangler.

You could pick up a premium Sahara model of the Wrangler, and you’d still be paying less. Of course, you’ll also enjoy 18-inch aluminum wheels – compared to the Xterra S’s 16-inch alternatives – plus a Uconnect 430N with 6.5-inch touchscreen and navigation and an Alpine premium audio system – neither of which is offered by the standard Xterra.

Power and Efficiency

The 2015 Jeep Wrangler is fitted as standard with an award-winning 3.6L Pentastar VVT V6 engine. This provides Regina and Moose Jaw drivers with a Best-in-Class 285 horsepower, but doesn’t sacrifice efficiency in order to get there – you’ll earn up to 14.2 L/100km in the city and 11 on the highway.

The 2015 Nissan Xterra fails to match the Wrangler when it comes to efficiency and output. The 4.0L DOHC V6 engine is good for just 261 horsepower, allowing for 16 L/100km in the city and 12 on the highway.

Off-Road Capability

Few manufacturers are as synonymous with off-roading as Jeep, and the Wrangler is their dedicated off-roading machine. It should therefore come as no surprise that it offers superior backcountry performance to competitors like the 2015 Nissan Xterra.

For a start, all models are Trail Rated, meaning that they’ve been rigorously tested in terms of traction, ground clearance, maneuverability, articulation, and water fording. It seems to have paid off, with the Wrangler able to deliver:

  • Best-in-Class Ground Clearance
  • Best-in-Class Approach and Departure Angles
  • Best-in-Class Maneuverability.
