Saskatchewan drivers know that having an off-roading vehicle that’s ready for action is a necessity, second only to breathing… kidding, kind of.

Not any SUV will do the trick for us Canadians, only a real performance ready off-roader is able to do the job. Luckily, there’s the 2016 Jeep Wrangler ready and waiting to show Regina drivers just what it’s capable of. To show just how impressive the Wrangler is we’ve compared it to the 2016 Nissan Xterra, another somewhat similar SUV.

Performance You Can Handle

In the performance department the 2016 Jeep Wrangler shows that it’s all about business. This impressive off-roader gives Moose Jaw drivers a four-wheel drive 3.6L V6 six-speed manual transmission that can easily dole out 285 hp. On the other hand, the Nissan Xterra has rear-wheel drive 4.0L five-speed automatic engine only gives drivers a maximum of 261 hp.

The Wrangler even has a shorter wheelbase than the Xterra at 95.4 inches compared to 106.3 inches, making the Wrangler much better suited for making the sharp, quick turns that are needed for maximum off-roading performance.


Even though the 2016 Jeep Wrangler places a lot of focus on ensuring that drivers are able to experience the peak of off-roading performance, it still manages to provide Saskatoon drivers with more interior comfort, convenience, and technology options as well. For instance, the Wrangler offers drivers optional extras like premium radio, front DVD entertainment systems, power mirrors, rear window defrosters, and 115V power outlets while the Xterra simply does not have these features available as standard or optional.

Which is Better?

If you’re looking for a truly sporty, off-roading capable SUV then the choice is clear. The 2016 Jeep Wrangler focuses a lot of attention on refining and perfecting the “sports” element of being an SUV while the Xterra does not. With its lighter construction, more precise turning abilities, and adaptable powertrain the Wrangler has the capability that Regina residents crave. Then, the Wrangler even makes sure to go a step beyond providing excellent performance and give drivers a multitude of impressive and innovating interior comfort and infotainment features. The combination of all of these things clearly puts the 2016 Jeep Wrangler ahead of the curve in this particular comparison.
