2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2018 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the backseat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited than in the Chevrolet Equinox, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited will be a hit with tall drivers and their front seat passengers, since it has greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Equinox.

Convenience
The Chevrolet Equinox requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, making it more convenient to drive.

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). Clearly, the Chevrolet Equinox is a better financial choice over the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, when considering MSRP. 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. The Chevrolet Equinox is slightly shorter than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Chevrolet Equinox doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Performance
In terms of towing capacity, the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited is clearly the choice over the Chevrolet Equinox for pulling heavy loads. When it comes to horsepower, the Chevrolet Equinox has a lot less 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.
