2015 Jeep Wrangler
2015 Nissan Xterra
Jeep is made up of adventure specialists, constantly seeking to outclass the competition with a dedication to providing Estevan and Indian Head, SK drivers with unstoppable all-terrain machines. One of their latest models is the 2015 Jeep Wrangler, a formidable SUV that easily draws ahead of comparable vehicles like the 2015 Nissan Xterra.
Trim Levels and Price
Want choice? The 2015 Jeep Wrangler comes in seven trim levels, letting Indian Head drivers receive exactly what they want in an off-roader:
- Sport: The Sport starts at only $21,195, and comes with eight speakers and premium cloth seating to provide absolute comfort as standard.
- Sport S: Starting at $26,645, the Sport S keeps out the glare with deep-tint sunscreen glass.
- Unlimited Sport S: Starting at $29,695, this model incorporates 60/40-split seating, letting you choose between cargo and passenger capacity.
- Sahara: Starting at $32,870, the Sahara provides fully automatic exterior lighting control and illuminated entry.
- Unlimited Sahara: Starting at $35,270, the Unlimited Sahara is for the adventuring with the whole family, with two extra doors fitted.
- Rubicon: Starting at $35,870, the Rubicon allows you to remove both the rear windscreen and rear windows.
- Unlimited Rubicon: Starting at $38,270, this a top-class machine with rock rails, high-end suspension, and a Rock-Trac four-wheel-drive system.
Nissan offers Estevan drivers a dramatically lower level of choice, with only two poorly balanced trim levels:
- S: The S starts at $34,013 – a premium price tag for a standard model. Drivers will enjoy a six-speaker audio system and a hands-free texting function.
- PRO-4X: Costing only marginally more than the S with a starting price of $35,998, the PRO-4X is the only real choice for Nissan customers, with leather seating and a 380-W Rockford Fosgate audio system.
Power and Efficiency
All 2015 Jeep Wrangler models have been provided with 3.6L Pentastar V6 engines as standard. This dynamic machine has been featured an incredible three times on Ward’s Top Ten Engines list, and provides an output of 285 hp along with a generous 260 lb-ft of torque.
Each 2015 Nissan Xterra is fitted with a larger-capacity 4.0L DOHC 24-valve engine. This model outperforms the Wrangler in terms of raw power. However, the Wrangler utilizes its strength more efficiently than the Xterra, providing noticeably superior fuel consumption rates:
- 2-door Wrangler: 14.2 L/100 km in the city and 11.0 L/100 km on the highway with a 6-speed manual transmission, or 14.1 and 11.1 with a 5-speed automatic
- 4-door Wrangler: 15.0 L/100 km in the city and 11.4 L/100 km on the highway with a manual, or 14.8 and 11.7 on the highway with automatic.
- Xterra S: 16 L/100 km in the city and 12.0 L/100 km on the highway with a 5-speed automatic transmission.
- Xterra PRO-4X: 16 L/100 km in the city and 12.3 L/100 km on the highway with a 6-speed manual transmission
The team at Jeep is just as dedicated to backcountry adventure as the Estevan and Indian Head residents who drive their vehicles, and that’s apparent in every inch of the 2015 Wrangler. While the 2015 Nissan Xterra attempts to marry city and off-road driving, the Wrangler is an all-terrain machine through and through, with several features to let you enjoy the great outdoors, including:
- High-Power Front Fog Lights
- Convertible Roof
- Higher gross axle weight ratings than the Xterra in both the front and rear
Not enough? You’ll also enjoy best-in-class ground clearance, best-in-class approach and departure angles, and best-in-class maneuverability when you drive home a Wrangler Rubicon.
Both the 2015 Nissan Xterra and the 2015 Jeep Wrangler ensure that driving is a pleasurable, effortless experience. Steering wheel-mounted cruise control and audio control is incorporated in both, as is a standard 8 speaker sound system. However, while standard means $21,195 with a Wrangler, it means a mammoth $34,013 with an Xterra.
Even with that price difference, the Wrangler is still fitted with several pieces of technology that aren’t found as standard in the Xterra, including a state-of-the-art trip computer and a service interval warning system.
Safety comes as standard in either SUV, with every model including:
- Anti-Lock Brakes: Prevents wheels from seizing up when the brakes are applied, reducing the chance of uncontrolled skidding.
- Traction Control: Protects drivers from tire slip on terrains where firm footing isn’t assured.
- Electronic Stability Control: Diminishes the possibility of collisions by correcting over or under-steering.
- Occupant Sensing Airbags: Provides intuitive protection in the highly unlikely event of a collision occurring.
However, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler also includes other tried-and-tested safety devices, including a Hill Start Assist system.
