Other than the superficial difference that "crosscorr" is in the econometric toolbox and "xcorr" is in the signal processing toolbox, I find that there are two important distinctions between "crosscorr" and "xcor". 1. Means are removed from input series for "crosscorr", but not for "xor". 2. For "crosscorr", the 1st input leads the 2nd input, while for "xcross" the 1st input lags the 2nd input.
