2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Chevrolet Equinox offers rear passengers about the same room to stretch out as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, with comparable head- and legroom. The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited 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 Unlimited, 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 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
With similar torque, the Chevrolet Equinox and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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 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.
