2014 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2014 Jeep Wrangler Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Chevrolet Equinox than in the Jeep Wrangler. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Equinox and the Jeep Wrangler.

Convenience
Due to the larger tank size and better fuel economy of the Chevrolet Equinox, you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Jeep Wrangler.

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). Whether you pick the Chevrolet Equinox or the Jeep Wrangler, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Chevrolet Equinox carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Jeep Wrangler.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is a little narrower than the Jeep Wrangler, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the Chevrolet Equinox, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Jeep Wrangler.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has a significantly larger turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Equinox for pulling heavy loads. The Chevrolet Equinox has a little more horsepower than the Jeep Wrangler.

Utility
The Chevrolet Equinox offers greater seating capacity than the Jeep Wrangler, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The Chevrolet Equinox has a roomier cargo area for putting your bags or other items than the Jeep Wrangler.

Warranty
The Chevrolet Equinox comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Jeep Wrangler.
