2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2017 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. The Jeep Wrangler offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Equinox, offering the driver and front passenger a bit more room and comfort.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Chevrolet Equinox 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 Chevrolet Equinox 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. 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
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Equinox and the Jeep Wrangler are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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 less 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.
