2014 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2014 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 Jeep Wrangler, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between front seat comfort in the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Convenience
The Jeep Wrangler Unlimited requires fewer stops at the gas station than the Jeep Wrangler, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the Jeep Wrangler 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. Both the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Jeep Wrangler is about the same width as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. If you go with the Jeep Wrangler, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited are about even in transmitting their respective horsepower to the wheels.

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

Performance
If you've got something you need to pull, the Jeep Wrangler will do just as well as the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, since they have about the same towing capacity. In terms of horsepower, it's a virtual tie between the Jeep Wrangler and the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

Utility
The Jeep Wrangler has less seating than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, making the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited the better choice, if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Jeep Wrangler has significantly less cargo capacity than the Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.

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