2014 Jeep Wrangler vs. 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Rear passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Jeep Wrangler than in the Toyota FJ Cruiser. The Toyota FJ Cruiser offers just a little more front head- and legroom than the Jeep Wrangler, 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 Jeep Wrangler as you will with the Toyota FJ Cruiser, 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). Whether you pick the Jeep Wrangler or the Toyota FJ Cruiser, it's going to cost you about the same. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the Jeep Wrangler is much higher than that for the Toyota FJ Cruiser.

Dimensions
The Jeep Wrangler is a little narrower than the Toyota FJ Cruiser, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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 Toyota FJ Cruiser.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque engine, the Jeep Wrangler doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Toyota FJ Cruiser.

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

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

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

Warranty
The Jeep Wrangler comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Toyota FJ Cruiser.
