2014 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Chevrolet Equinox and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

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 Unlimited.

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 Unlimited. 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 Unlimited.

Dimensions
The Chevrolet Equinox is a little narrower than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the Chevrolet Equinox takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

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

Handling
The Chevrolet Equinox has a smaller turning radius than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating, you'll be able to fit about the same number of people in both the Chevrolet Equinox and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. The Chevrolet Equinox has less cargo space than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

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