2014 Buick Encore vs. 2015 Jeep Wrangler Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat may find themselves a little more cramped in the Buick Encore than the Jeep Wrangler. The Jeep Wrangler will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Buick Encore.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Buick Encore as you will with the Jeep Wrangler, as they are both able to travel similar distances on a tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the Buick Encore will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Jeep Wrangler. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Buick Encore will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Jeep Wrangler.

Dimensions
Since the Buick Encore is much slimmer than the Jeep Wrangler, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Buick Encore, which is slightly longer than the Jeep Wrangler.

Drivetrain
The Buick Encore has much lower torque than the Jeep Wrangler, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Buick Encore has a larger turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Buick Encore has a lot less horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
The Buick Encore offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Buick Encore has less cargo space than the Jeep Wrangler, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the Buick Encore than that of the Jeep Wrangler.
